I don't shop at Divers Discount Supply for the reasons pointed out in this thread, but I think it's only fair to note that DDS is one of the major sponsors of this board. Perhaps they deserve some credit for helping to facilitate a lively(!) and educational discussion of diving in California.
Of course, none of this matters if there is nowhere to provide fills and instruction hence my decision to give my business to a local dive shop.
Also, in the long run, the mail order houses run the risk of shooting themselves in the foot because there won't be a market for scuba gear at any price if there aren't local shops to train new divers and fill our tanks. Unfortunately, if that happens, we all lose too.
Support your local dive store!
