Need Help Buying Gear

So I'm looking for a marker and been thinking on the RSX shocker but my local is selling it for $1090 and badlands is $1175. But on ANS its $800 but then with the fees not sure how much it will be, not sure what to do.

Local is cheapest. ANS will cost about $1130 before duties, and shipping fees. Our dollar is weak right now, so its best to buy local.

Edit:
According to this WEBSITE it'll be about 150$ for duties.

Yeah I will second the local option, unless you want a specific color and only ANS has it, then it can be worth it to pay the fees/etc.

Always buy local before conglomerates. Yeah most of the time it comes from these guys, but support your local shop.

Also if you need any gear, just send me a pm. I might have what you're looking for.

Are there some kind of astronomical fees for shipping a marker to Canada? Wth not trying to be rude or disrespectful this is just the first that I've heard rsx's sell for that much even if they're private labels. You won't be disappointed with it though it's a great gun

Exchange rate, plus you're going to get charged duties at the border as well which is going to be hefty.

We're in a bad spot as a country for buying new gear. Back when dollar was near parity, you could buy everything from the US online stores and save a bundle. Now, it's not worth it at all. Rough time to be buying a new gun.

That's their selling point. Our Canadian dollar is at an all time low sitting at 1$ CAD = 0.69 $ USD.

The economy is based of USD so to import them and to sell at retail is the price they are given.

Also do not forget there are customs fees as well with anything over 250$. So it would be adding another 100-150$ on top of the marker price in USD.

Then also, it is more expensive to buy USD in CAD $$ then it is to buy CAD $$$ in USD. Exchange rates vary. Costs us about 1.68 for every 1$ USD. It's ****ing rape.
