I fully understand the risks taken by the vendors and why they need their higher margins to cover for those risks. I also understand the market. If you have the money to spend, you certainly can get whatever gun you want, however there is always the bitter taste that you know the gun retails outside Canada, just over the border in the U.S. for less than 50% most of the time.

When I know the JG G36 sells for $99 in the U.S. and Canadian dealers sell it for $350 as that seems to be a price the market has settled on, my wallet just can't reconcile with that very easily. For items that cost that little in the first place, one might as well take the risk of importing it themselves. I appreciate the dealers but margins like that just don't go over well with some people despite it making perfect sense and given the climate in this country - reasonable.
