Pawnshops are a gamble of time and it just becomes one of those things of do I have the time or don't I? Gun shows are good for laughs usually with the impossible to believe high prices on junk at times. It was 39 here this AM and I doubt you will see that in Cali so that becomes a trade off for the draw backs and as everyone knows we all have different opinions! Me I'll put up with the cooler temperatures and Milsurps and you guys in Cali can have the nice weather. Pluses and minuses to everything I guess!
