Just to give you an idea:

Glock17 in USA $550-$600 here $1200
Kimber 1911 USA $750-$900 here $1400
Beretta PX USA $650-$750 here $1400-$1500
S&W MP USA $550-$600 here $900

And did I mentioned that we do not get paid in US currency??.....buying a gun down here is really expensive!!!!................

The funny part is that if you buy a gun say in 2011 for $1000 here, you will be able to sell it for the same $1000 in 2014....there is no mark-down in prices for used guns
