    Great advice

    Good point! The AR I ordered just before Christmas would have been under $500 Cdn if it was to be ordered today. Not bad. And thanks for making interesting products available to us up here.
    Look to your front! Mark your target when it comes.

    Exactly, currencies move much slower than bitcoin prices!

    Not many businesses have any interest in predicting currency moves into their prices so I don't blame IRG in running their business exclusively in USD.

    Pros in the finance industry have little idea where a particular currency is going next.

    It's just the inverse ratio.

    $1.24 is the cost of converting $1USD to $CAD. $0.81 is the cost of converting $1CAD to $USD.

    Rogers Platinum MasterCard => 2.5% foreign currency transaction fee, but 4% rewards on US dollar transactions = 1.5% Net Reward

    In January 2002 it was 1.60, and 30 days ago it was 1.30, I think it's fair to say the savings of $60.00 per $1000.00 at today's rate compared to 30 days ago is concidered positive...


    Flat rate shipping to Canada is 25.00USD on all accessory and ammunition orders regardless of quantities ordered. Firearms are exported to Canada at a flat rate of 25.00USD per firearm.
