    Not specifically for the 180-B, but for any gun:
    When I am talking to the US vendors, I like to point out that Canada is about the population of California (~35 million), and while we CAN own guns, we cannot have AK's, HK91 or 93, FN-FAL, and a few other named guns.
    And while we CAN have AR-15 and AR-10 variants, they are Restricted.
    So any other semi that is not either Prohib or Rest has a HUGE advantage. Almost a captive audience.
    At that point, they get interested.

    The size of the California annual firearms market is about 4-5 times of the size of Canada based on ATF and CDN number. We have the same population but not the same gun ownership. The size of Canada firearms market is about the size of a small state in the US.

    Believe it or not, California and Texas are the biggest firearms market in the US. They consume over a million guns a year. That is definitely not the size of Canada's market.

    ..and everybody says California is left wing liberal. Interesting info GT.
    I dislike having a battle of wits when my opponent comes unarmed....it just seems so unsportsmanlike!

    California is only left winged in the cities - the second you head out of the cities they are all conservatives. Unfortunately, the political power is concentrated in the cities.

    The cities are liberal IMO, rural California - of which there is plenty, is as conservative as anywhere.

    Sorry, Kentucky is actually bigger than California and Texas combined together.

    Heh... It would probably take you less time to set up shop in the US than it would for the RCMP to give you an FRT.
    Do you take what you can get or do you get what you can take?
