    IF the dollar trades at 1.24 you arent getting anything at 1.24. If you want to use Mastercard for example you will currently get 1.29 plus add 2.5% charge. This isnt strong by any means. Strong means at par or better. IRG has an amazing selection that you cannot find anywhere else in Canada. Period. However after including shipping taxes dollar exchange credit charges. IT comes out to almost 50% more than the price shown. A $1000 firearm comes out to anywhere from $1420-1480 after all charges etc. If dollar was on par This would be amazing though.

    If the same firearm here costs twice the original US$1000, you're ahead of the game if it costs you C$1800 (example) after the shipping, and forex conversion. Don't forget the HST in most provinces on the Canadian price, too.

    I always took an advantage of a strong Canadian dollar but I think the time has come and the real-life currency is slowly dying and cryptocurrency is coming to our world. I hate to be tracked by the government on what I do and on what I spend my money on. This is literally spying on people's lives through their bank accounts which is not acceptable. I also like to play at bitcoin casino and do not want the government to know that I play it and I do not want to pay tax for the casino that I play as hobby and cryptocurrency casinos help me to avoid this extra fee. I think soon we will have more places that will accept cryptocurrencies and we will have a possibility for an anonymous life.
