I was in Hong Kong last summer and I found the hobby shop street over there...and I looked at the airsoft guns there, ultra cheap, but can't be imported back to Canada....so I went and bought a Tamiya R/C instead

I was pretty shocked however, that there could be THAT much of a difference between prices between almost everything.....

*Finds a TM M16 for about $300 and goes OMGWTFBBQ*
*Finds a Tamiya R/C for about $180 and buys it (because its like $300 over here....)*

Same as anything. I buy LiPos from HK for $12.99 that cost me about $50/ea in Canada.

This is no news to those of us who have.. you know... read the FAQs. Or understand economics and Canada's import laws.

Hey hey, I know the economics and Canada's import laws....I am just kinda shocked at how prices can have THAT much of a difference...I mean, I was expecting maybe a difference of about 2 times (as in Canadian prices being twice as much) but it was more like 3 times more.....

Although..it is true that you just can't compare Hong Kong's and Canada's prices since there so much of a difference...and this goes for everything, not just airsoft guns.
