    Default Adam Webber gets 4 years in prison

    U.S. District Judge Dee Benson was unmoved by a crestfallen apology from a Salt Lake County businessman on Thursday.

    "I think deceit is one of his most apparent characteristics. I'm not even sure about the speech he gave me today," Benson said of the apology before sentencing 40-year-old Adam Michael Webber on one count of dealing firearms without a license and five counts of tax fraud.

    "I appreciate the effort," the judge said, "but I don't believe a lot of it."

    Sentenced to 4 years in prison and $100,000 fine

    All of us have purchased items from HK Parts, and Adam always has what other don't. Even though we paid a premium for those parts. Why didn't get just get an FFL early in the process? Something seems odd here, except for the tax issue and I don't know what it is unfortunately.

    Wow.....I mean, I guess congrats to Adam??? I've seen moonshiner's get a hell of a lot more than that. It could have been far, far worse, and I really thought it was going to be a lot more than that. Regardless.....my prayers to him and his family because $100K isn't pocket change, and four years is four years.

    Does he have someone to run the site while he's in the pokey, or will he been forced to shut down?

    No malice .... Pointless. I feel badly for him and I wish him the best. To bad he just didn’t play the game and get anointed by the federal government and get his piece of paper granting him worth.

    Frankly, I find this whole thing BS. Our own government engages in weapons sales to all sorts of nefarious and dangerous people around the world, but then demands that we get a permission slip from them to actually exercise our rights. Nonsense. Also, this judge sound like he was pretty biased against Webber, basically flat out saying that he was using charges that had been dropped in his decisions.

    Sure, Webber made a lot of mistakes and definitely was doing some shady stuff, but other than the tax penalties, I don't think he should be seeing any prison time.

    I am seriously, seriously in the wrong business - online storefront, no overhead, bring on the rain $$$

    "From 2007 and 2010, Webber earned more than $10 million in gross receipts from his business, between the legal sale of parts and the illegal sale of firearms."

    -Wonder what the gross receipts were from years of 2010-2017 :WOW:

    But, Webber also was found guilty of underreporting how much he made in both his legal and illegal sales, reporting just $183,397 in gross receipts on tax forms.

    Webber bought a house in $670,000 — in cash and under his wife’s name — according to court documents. He sheltered the home with a “sham limited liability company and the charade of a promissory note and mortgage worth less in reality than the paper on which it was printed,” court documents state. Skordas argued on Thursday that that decision was made based on advice from the couple’s real estate broker.


    ^^Moral of the story of the above is don't trust your real estate broker on estate planning advice and hire a competent tax lawyer for God sakes - those kind of gross incomes you are under the microscope of the IRS come one man

    From a court ruling years ago Adam was not allowed to have an FFL.

    Adam Michael Webber, owner of the Heckler and Koch parts supplier HKparts.net is under investigation by the ATF. After facing penalty in 2007 by the ATF, he filed a legal agreement to not face prosecution if he agreed to not deal firearms nor attempt to attain a Federal Firearms License. His business was unaffected regardless and is now renowned by almost all HK enthusiasts.
