    I'm simply stunned that one of my LFSs hasn't gone under. They are consistently overpriced and just about every other LFS undercuts them. How they're still in business is nothing short of a miracle.

    For instance I bought my Mag-7s online, SHIPPED to me for literally half the price this LFS is selling them for. It boggles the mind.

    Not a small rumor, they are done. They were trying to clear everything out this last weekend. I went and got great deals on some stuff, but there wasn't much left. He was going to stay open till everything was gone, so I'm not sure if Ronnie is open today, or for how long exactly. If they are, it's probably just some dry goods.
    If your interested, we are trying to put together some road trips ahead for the club. We will head down to the northern Sacramento/Auburn area fish stores, I have heard they are awesome. And set up as a group thing the drive won't be so bad. Everyone can pitch in and get the driver a frag, lunch, whatever. Just an idea some of us have been tossing around.

    Don't forget we still have 3 LFS in the area.

    Jan's Tropics in Carson City

    Pet Station Truckee Ca

    Pet Station S. Lake Tahoe Ca

    Sac area certainly has a couple of good stores.

    Salt Lake City Long drive also a couple of good stores.

    Also Milpitas Ca near San Jose has an excellent store
