Well there's really nothing in the vicinity of ONT, other than me. I live in Chino, just 5 or 6 miles from ONT.

What exactly are you looking to buy?

I know of a few places, but none of them are iclose to ONT.

WHY would you choose to stay in COLTON of all places? Have you ever been there? Colton is nothing but a collection of run down, old housing, truck yards, gas terminals (we have one out there, along with several other companies), industrial buildings, and warehouses.

Anway, a few places you might want to check out are http://www.houseofhobbies.com in Burbank, or http://www.skyjets400.com in Encino.

There is also a nice little shop about a mile south of LAX on Sepulveda Blvd, across from the Hacienda Hotel in that little corner shopping center. It's a small store, but has a wide variety of items.

You might also want to check out El Dorado Toys and Hobbies in the Buena Park Mall, in Buena Park. They have a few Gemini Jets, Dragon Wings, and a wide assortment of Herpas and Schabaks.

And if you like Herpas, there is a store with a HUGE assortment of them, about 5 minutes south of Buena Park Mall on Beach Blvd. I don't remember the name of it, but it is in "Hobby City", and the first store on the right when you first drive in.

I thought you were gonna say blacks and mexicans also...

The reason I am staying in Colton is because thats where my wifes mom lives, she has a good job at CAL St. San Bernardino, (in the office) I had to put that in there so that you knew she wasnt on welfare... Oh yea, my wife is a black princess.

You may ask why I am getting into this, your comment kinda pointed that I was crazy for staying in a rundown area... Her apartment is quite nice and because I am white, wont get me killed in Colton...

Now, there are certain areas of LA that may... Big grin




Anyway, thanks for the info, it will help me out. Come on, Colton isnt that bad, just not a lot to do there of course.
