Yes, TTD definitely has better pricing but Dave is just about the friendliest shop owner I've ever come across. He scores points with me by remembering my daughter every time we go in and asking her questions related to stuff she told him on previous visits. I'll have to hit TTD again soon, he was short on stuff like you said last time I was there. It is fun digging through his discount boxes though, come up with some gems now and then.
