    High was a couple of years ago, lol, now they're charging $45 to ship a pistol from Alberta to Ontario.

    I still like doing business with IRG's but you need to calculate your all-in cost to truly know if you're getting a good deal. I also use a credit card that doesn't charge a foreign exchange fee (every little bit helps).

    Canadian Post shipping breakdown costs:

    Basic shipping charge- is based on WxHxL and weight

    Canada Post Coverage- $2.25 per $100.00 of value for damage or lost packages which seems to happen more then it should.

    PST and or HST- whatever your province charges ie. Ontario is 13%

    Signature fee/proof of age- $3.00

    Fuel surcharge- 3%

    Oversize package fee $12.00 for packages over 39”


    Every company has the same charges from Canada Post. You are either paying for it in the price of your purchase or it is separated out and disclosed to you.

    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.

    The breakdown is useless, you're unwillingness to negotiate lower rates with CP on behalf of your customers is the real issue. You keep telling everyone it cost what it cost and we keep telling you that all of your competitors ship for less, period.

    That's not how Canada Post works.

    You can only negotiate better pricing with them if you ship a certain number of parcels. If you don't meet that quota they won't negotiate. It's basic business practice. More quantity/bulk = lower cost.

    If IRUNGUNS isn't shipping the required quantity, all the moaning in the world will not reduce the rates.

    People with the "holier than thou", like what you're portraying here, is the real issue IMO. CP has zero obligation to negotiate shipping rates, business is business. It's not like IRG is marking up the shipping and they have a thread specifying the reason for the rates.

    But back to the OP's question, IRG has been great for both of my purchases (both done in 2020) of accessories from the US site. Not a fast transaction, about 2 months from order to doorstep, but they've been done right and that is what i care about.

    IRG is a great company.

    The only issue is people who can't read and/or follow instructions

    End of story

    I stick to ordering off the Canadian site. Other then high shipping costs I have zero issues with IRG. Even with the current exchange rate their prices are lower then most.
