    Hi All,

    I am visiting LA on the weekend, and wanted to visit fencing equipment stores in the area? Specifically Leon Paul or even others? Any places you would recommend?

    Appreciate your help Thanks

    I'm in Burbank, but I'm fairly small...I can GET LP, but I don't normally stock any of it.

    The only other option in the area is Gladius in Torrance, but I don't think they stock LP either.

    @Purple Fencer do we have any "stores," besides Fencing Post in Escondido, Alliance in San Francisco, and Victory in Millbrae? I mean a real store you can walk into, not a club's shop?

    Not entirely true. I DO have some stuff on hand. Gladys has more.

    Neither of us are the size of Fencing Post, but that’s a little irrelevant. We both have a physical location...neither of us are web-only.

    They’ve been around for a couple of years...me since 2001.

    Just because either of us has a large storefront doesn’t mean we don’t exist.

    Those are the only three large stores I'm aware of in the state. American used to have a storefront, but that gradually faded as Matthew left San Francisco. I think he was working out of the house before it burned.

    I'm PMing this as well, but be advised that I am in Thousand Oaks most of the day Saturday. I typically pull out of there around 5pm.

    Sunday I can meet in the late afternoon or early morning, as I have to be in Encino around 12:30 to help my wife tear down her farmers market stall.

    this seems crazy to me. maybe I'll have to rectify that.
