JR, I also thought that was chicken sh-t of Ville to put Jim on the spot like that. I've known Jim for 20 years or so and have seen him struggle to keep the doors open at Scuba Toys many times. Jim has the best shop in town. I attribute that to him being a small business owner, besides having more knowledge that anyone in the business, he still provide the personal attention that most of us require.
Asking him to compete with the larger discounted dive shops or meet any of the other shops policies and prices could very well close his doors. And people who don't require the personal attention that Jim or any other small dive stores provide, please leave them alone and go to your favorite discounted scuba supply store or sports chalet where no one knows enough about the sport to give that same attention.
Ville, call me a rude arrogent prick if you want, I too have the freedom to post publicly.
