Who are you waiting on? Roadside assistance? AAA? Some dude at McDonald's you handed $40 to who promised he'd be right back with your patched tire?
Costco tire shop.
Very busy, but I did get the flat fixed and tires rotated for free....on a Sunday.
It's hard to complain too much about that.
Re. Gun show same stuff
Considering that we live on an island with limited range access, it's not bad.
Mainland gun shows have vendors driving in from surrounding areas.
This spurs more competitive pricing.
I used to sell stuff and make a lot of money, but it was hard work and took time.
What was the benefit besides money and finding a great bargain?
I made lifelong friends. Many of whom hold prestigious societal positions.
I gained knowledge. If you go to the gun show just to go shopping for a bargain, you are missing out.
The gun show is administered by the Hawaii Historic Arms Association. As part of its charter, the club needs to prove that it provides a public service in the form of educational exhibits. The gentlemen who create the displays spent decades learning about their particular field of expertise and building collections of artifacts. There are some amazingly knowledgeable people here who are glad to share their mana with you if you have the desire to learn.
I also go to the gun show to socialize and to take inventory of friends who are still alive. Over the past 37 years, a lot of my friends have gone to the big gun show in the sky. The remaining friends are very happy to see me and I am happy to see them.
There are few places better to socialize than a room full of like-minded individuals.
Finally, there is the "barnyard find"!
Are you akamai enough to recognize a lost treasure?
A few months ago I was at the Ukumehame range on Maui.
I met a gentleman who was shooting a vintage Mossberg target rifle.
He said that he bought it at the gun show really cheap. He researched the rifle and discovered that it was a rare variation that was collectable and worth quite a bit of money.
