    I currently work for the Police and although i have been happy there i only work when i get offered it on kinda short contracts. These are getting scarce now so have been looking for a full time job. I managed to get a job on the sales floor of a large Photographic retailer here in the UK. I won't say where yet as i don't start for another few weeks but to say I'm chuffed is an understatement Plus they have a Fuji X100 on display for me to drool over!!!! Can't wait to start!

    Andy, congrats.
    Many moons ago, I worked at Kosmin's Camera Exchange here in Philly.
    The owner Herman, gave me great discounts on everything. Where that came to play was in the used Dept.
    Guys would trade in their cameras and get new stuff.
    Herman gave them 50% of value and I got 60% off that.
    It's how I built my Leica collection.

    I'm not suggesting anything but the used is where you will make out.
    Enjoy your new venture and report any Ghost in the gear you find.

    Me, too, Bill - a trip to jolly old England might even come into play. I can just envision us all with Andy ringing up those sales!

    Andy, if you decide to sell the M9 for maybe $1000.00 put me on the list.
    I think maybe a few Bill's would be interested also.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Enjoy it Andy! I had one of those once (a job in a camera shop). I loved the camera part but it was mostly a sales job and they wanted you to push what they wanted you to push. I didn't love that part. Maybe you'll be luckier!

    Andy, What are friends for?
    We all want you to have many sales. Just tell them, it's about volume.
