New Store smell….

Hey gang,

There is an Academy opening up in San Marcos on Thursday, November the 5th, and I’ve decided to grace the store with my presence.

Okay, I’m not that conceited, but yea, I’ll be there to check it out, camera in tow.

But, this is where the debate starts. I believe that since this is the store’s grand opening, they will have fully stocked ammo shelves. Dad, on the other hand, believes differently. He thinks that the ammo would go to more popular stores, like those in San Antonio and Austin. Any thoughts on this?
