DNS, it's way too early to engage in a urinary Olympiad on this.
So you don't seek locations that offer the best price on anything?
Cabellas is 45 mins-1 hr away, so no, I don't get over there but every 3-4 months. But when I go, I normally stock up a bit. It's much more likely to find me in Bass Pro since I drive past it once a week.
And before we go too far off the rabbit trail, yes I am a supporter of my LGS as well, but they don't sell some things I regularly purchase.
Now, back to the point of this whole thread, sounds like at least DNS has experienced what I am talking about, so it's not a local phenomena.
