Shipping is always a hassle, even when everything goes to the plan (and more often than not something doesn't!)... But first time is usually the hardest, after you've done it once, it'll be much more clear to you the next time. Buying overseas, can be done, too,but not without a bit of effort. And what you do afterwards, sell it? Ok, but that´s yet another unknown. All these can be done, if you´ve got the time and a bit of patience. In a hurry (or don't want the hassle), then just simply rent. For shorter trips, it might well be cheaper overall, too.
