    I was gonna buy that same one when it was a hot deal before last Christmas. They reserved the last one for me on the phone and told me they could only hold it for an hour. I got there 15mins late and they had sold it. So, I ended up at SCI spending 3x as much cuz I was already in safe buying mode, but it does have higher ratings and such. That Cannon still looks like a good deal to me.

    Yeah, I have one from SCI too and comparing them is interesting.

    SCI: 59x36x24, 725#, 75 minute fire
    Academy: 59x36x20, 450#, 45 minute fire

    Granted, SCI was 2x...but you can see the difference in the build quality between the two. This one will do the job though!

    You must be on the mall’s Fast Action Response Team with that kind of load-out at the ready. You F.A.R.T guys get all the cool toys first!,

    Yeah, well I'm on firearm buying restriction from my better half right now. The stuff that is in there is valuable though lol. Mostly records that would be a pain to replace if lost in a fire.

    My man! Those look beefier than the ones I was looking at.
