    HQ is interesting for its photo-ops (the tank, bomb out front, ejection chairs, huge Blade Runner fan in the lobby etc) but it is really kind of a let down as the "museum" is of lesser quality and substance than a lot of collections here on the forum.
    Its a better bang for the buck if you bring some items with you that require warranty service, like watches for batteries or crystals or x metals for tune-ups. Tune-ups are often done two-for-one for walk ins and if the frames are stripped you'll gain orbital screws/ washers and fresh rubbers.
    If you're a LEO, service member or fire fighter you can buy SI and other items at a special sales center at half retail but you have to present proof of service (ID card, etc) to gain access to that showroom.
    YMMV and Happy Birthday!
