I imported a few firearms from these guys in the past because they have some of the best prices in the industry. About two years ago, they've stopped exporting to Canada. Well I just got this email from them saying they will export again. I thought some of you may like to know this.

Budsgunshop Now Exporting to Canada!!

Dear Canadian customer, cher client canadien (version française ci-dessous),

We are pleased to announce that we have completed our registration with the US State Department's Directorate of Defense Trade Controls and are now authorized to export firearms, firearm parts/accessories and ammunition to Canada and beyond.

Shotguns with barrels of 18 inches/45.72 cm and longer, muzzleloaders, airguns, some of their parts and their ammunition require an export license from the US Commerce Department. The application for this export license is free and a few license exemptions may apply for Canada.

Rifles, handguns, shotguns with barrels shorter than 18 inches, their components/parts/accessories/attachments, hunting/sporting scopes and ammunition for firearms of this category require an export license from the US State Department as well as payment of a license application fee. License exemptions may apply for minor firearm components/parts/accessories/attachments if the total order value does not exceed USD 100.

In order to obtain the export license for your order, you are welcome to use an FFL export service of your choice. Our exporter registration allows us to apply for this export license as well and we would be pleased to do so if you provide us with the import authorization (International Import Certificate) and other related documentation. Our fee for the State Department export license application is USD 300 per order.

We have an experienced international shipping company for commercial quantities. Smaller parcels may be legally shipped via postal service (with insurance and tracking number).

All sales and shipping must fully comply with Canadian and U.S. law.

I was thinking about importing about $3000 worth of guns from a place like Bud's, but when I looked into it I'd have to arrange for secure shipping and brokerage which ate up a lot of the savings relative to Canadian prices. Was it worth it in the final analysis, bellero?

I was thinking about importing about $3000 worth of guns from a place like Bud's, but when I looked into it I'd have to arrange for secure shipping and brokerage which ate up a lot of the savings relative to Canadian prices. Was it worth it in the final analysis, bellero?

I my case, I ordered two Colt 1911's from Bud's. The first one I paid $839.99 (WWI O1918 black army replica) which was being sold for anywhere between $1600 to $2000 here in Canada. The second one I paid $949.99 (WWII Colt Talo replica) which I've never seen for sale in Canada.

I had Clay from Prophet River to import them for me. At the time, his fees were $150 for each gun. So for an approximate total of $2100, I got two pistols that would have costed me anywhere between $3500 to $4000 in Canada. It was worth it for those two pistols since they were really hard to find in Canada and the price was very good at Bud's compared to what we pay here for Colt products.
