Don't know about up in Canada but all fully automatic guns are illegal over here in NC. My friend does actually own an AK but its single shot only. Therefore, you could argue that no amount of $ could get me to shoot an automatic gun over here.
Also, after I got back from Vegas, I compared the price I payed for .45 rounds at the gun store to the price my roommates pay to shoot their Colt at our local range. Difference was about $10 or %20. Only main reason theirs is cheaper is because they go often enough to warrant a membership to the gun range. For a one timer, in Vegas I can buy a box of ammo, pay the range fee and rent a Thompson for $50. In Greensboro, NC I can do the same thing, shoot a Colt M1911 and it will cost me the same thing.
