Nothing like the thrill of the hunt and glory of the kill.

I'll go hunting from time to time but I've also found myself leaning more toward online recently. It's just such a hastle and waste of time to drive around, wasting gas, only to find the stores stocked with nothing.

I had to go with mixed bag.
I still get a thrill out of walking into a store and finding a toy I'm looking for. On the other hand I rarely find what I'm after. A good example is the Quick Kick Joe pack- I just found that in TRU on Feb 7th. I was tempted to order it online, but didn't want to pay the shipping.
On the other hand I order things online to avoid the hassle and disappointment on brick and motor stores.

ONLINE! without question.
I HATE going hunting. I live in So Cal, where the population, pollution, and traffic is hideous. It seem that every time I go on a hunt, I come back with nil... OR something I shouldn't have bought anyway (i.e. comic logo Wild Bill just because I felt sorry for him warming the pegs!) Ugh.
I'd rather spend a few bucks for S/H than spend tantamount on gas.
What I do enjoy about retail shopping is the happy accident... like when I take my daughter to Target so she can spend her gift card and I come across an UPB on clearance for $39!

both for me. don't like to pay shipping for online stuff, but it sure does save on gas and frustration. i generally get the majority of what i want online (lots o' preorders), and then get extra stuff at stores (sometimes as impulse purchases).

Definitely hunting for me. I usually combine Joe hunting with other road trip type activities and stops along the way. Makes for nice afternoon/evening of bumming around. Plus I like seeing the product/paint apps. first hand before I buy it.

Everyone should be shopping online. Stop creeping out those little kids in the stores fellas
Diogenes, one of the better known proponents of the school of Cynics, was often seen to be strolling about with a lamp in broad daylight and when asked what it was for, he would reply "I'm looking for an honest man."
