The cheapest guns I ever saw in Canada are about 200$ a piece, a far cry from the 12$-50$ from that site.
Which is why I want those REALLY REALLY cheap guns. Unfortunately, a 'master of arms' is out of the question. Most of my shooting dates, are dependant on the weather. Some scenes will be held off, for example, untill we have a cloudy day. Master of Arms cost money per hour, and have to be booked in advance (I can only assume). Due to the nature of this film, I can't swing that sort of cash. Plus, I want to have these guns for future projects.
