I've said it before, and I'll say it again. We don't really have any LHS's in this area. So, I guess the answer to the question would be, hmmmmm... never.

Hmmm, I got 3 very well stocked ones really close by so I often pop in to see what's new or just browse around.

About once a month I head over to the 2nd- Kit shops to see what they got and if anything of interest is cheap.

At least once a week, but not necessarily to get out of there with a kit thanksfully!

Only when I need something--usually. Once every couple months or so.

When ever I make a trip to P-cola or T-hassy. There are no LHS's in P-city. With that said, time for another C-coffee.Zzz [zzz]

I get to mine once in 30-45 days but I rarely buy anything. I usually go to look at the catalogs and check prices.

I visit my LHS's about twice a week. More often if I hear they have something I want.

Man that sucks you have to drive almost 2 hours to go to a hobby shop!
When you make it this way which one do you go to? Bobe's,Bosun's Locker,or Hobby Central? Theres also Johns but hes way out in the boonies past 9 mile rd on the north end of the county.

I drop by Mikes(Bobes) about once a week sometimes more....I try to make it up to Johns every few months, I really dont go into Bosuns locker to much he carries mainly ships, but if I need a bottle of paint quick I'll drive the mile to go get it. This summer I was going to the Hobby Town USA in Mobile every Sunday for racing(RC)so I was over there alot....Havent been to race for a while,but I still get over there once every few weeks....

1-2 times a week to two shops. Sometimes based on need. Shall we count all the times per week I sift through the internet stores?

2 or 3 times a week, to two or 3 different hobby shops, usually on the walk home from work.
