Why are guns more expensive in Australia than the USA?

A lot of people have been asking why guns – especially custom and competition guns like Infinity, Atlas, Phoenix Trinity, Vudoo Gunworks etc – cost so much more in Australia than the US – even considering the AUD/USD exchange rate.

It’s a great question, which is often confusing, especially when mass produced guns – Glock, Rock Island, Ruger etc – can be comparatively cheap.

I’ll get around to making a video about it soon-ish, but in the meantime, I hope this clarifies why shooting equipment – especially in small quantities – costs what it does.
