Outrageous international shipping costs
Want an example?
Leapers UTG Combat Weapon-mount and Handheld Tactical LED Flashlight LT-EL268 from Optics Planet
Optics Planet price: $45.59US
Total in USD$: $76.29US
Amazon.ca price: $45.76CDN
Total in CDN$: $52.51CDN
Needless to say it's been ordered already from Amazon.

ATI Stock Drop Spacer MRW4500
Sales Tax (8.75%, IL Only) $0.00
Grand Total $33.24
$28.25US to ship a $5.00 piece of plastic? It could conceivably be dropped in an envelope and mailed via USPS eliminating brokerage and handling fees associated with international shipping that courier companies charge. I'm not going to rant on this endlessly but I do want you to be aware of the issue.
