    "Do you have a tamron 17-50 2.8?"
    "Do you have a simga 18-50 2.8?"
    "Do you have a tokina 16-50 2.8?"
    "Do you have any gaffer's tape?"
    "Do you have a 58mm lens cap?"

    They didn't have shit in stock. Not even gaffers tape.

    I want the tamron, but i would have bought either of the other ones if they were in stock.

    They said it's been busy and they usually have more in stock. I think it was just BS and a shitty as camera store in Louisiana. I'll be outta here in a week and be able to pick something up when i drive through Vegas.

    hrmm, maybe turbodude can chime in for the local shops. ill have to admit i havent really looked all that hard.

    b&c photo and millenium foto are a couple i havent checked out but the online reviews looked bad(b&c looks to be expensive and millenium i guess is really really overpriced and bad service)

    Worse comes to worse....i'll be in reno the 2nd week in april and Gordon's Photo (In reno and carson city) is fucking awesome. I think I'm still a member. By far the nicest staff I have ever met at a camera store. All equipment is clearly displayed, descent used selection, and the staff is neither "uninformed and aloof" nor "snobby and pushy." Almost every other camera store I have been to I would describe as one of the two.
