been out of AS for a while

where did all the stores go? in my bookmarks there was 8 stores in canada, now i can only find 2, both of which are charging rediculous prices!

remember, the CAD dollar is 6-7% better than the USD.

at http://shortyusa.com/ they sell JG G36c's for $150 (~$140 CDN)
at A&A they sell the same rifle for $379?!?!?!?!?!

need another example?
ICS MP5 SD5
USA = $279
CAD = $630??!?!?!?

i dont want to be a jackass but double.5 the price and the CAD is worth more than the USD? i know it maybe difficult to get guns to cad but it couldnt make it double!
what is going on here? when i played in 2005 i paid $350 for my gun WITH an extra clip and mine is a TM version. now its $565?

If you bother to read on what happened, some people tried to do illegal actions and got caught. Then it went downhill from there after the actions of those individuals caught the attention of the government. Dont blame the government, blame the idiots who did it.

Basically, it comes down to supply and demand.
