Hey guys, I'm currently working up in New Jersey but should be back home in Baton Rouge sometime next month.
I'm looking to buy a Mini 30. Does Cabela's or Bass Pro carry these in the Baton Rouge area? Any other gun retailers you might suggest where I can get one for a fairly decent price?

I have two ac window units, a very old one and a newer one. The old one draws 30 Amps on 240 Volts. 30 x 240 = 7200 Watts. The newer one draw...
