    That's too bad. Don't know about them being a part of 'Hobby City', but there were a bunch of separate craft/hobby stores scattered around near The Flintlock. That was back in the early to late 70s.

    I bought lots of BP kits at The Flintlock. Lots of Remington 1858 .44 steel kits, 45 Kentucky flintlock pistol kit, 50 Hawken rifle and Lyman Plains Pistol kits. They also had "Mountain Man" supplies to make possibles bags, powder horns, knives and such. I even bought an 1888 .45/70 Springfield "Long Tom" with bayonet and scabbard - mint and nearly unfired - there. My brother still has it. He bought his Lyman .58 "Zouave" there. He has that one, too.

    As squirrely as California is now, I guess I'm not surprised that a store of that quality would close it's doors.......

    I'm sure I've been in that one. When I walked through the door I felt unwelcome. I don't remember exactly where it was but it wasn't too far from Unclaimed Baggage.

    I used to go to Turners in Reseda, that's where I bought my stainless Virginia Dragoon.
