this is the one i have
with this belt holder
http://armysurplusstore.com/images/p...l/4821_big.JPG
like i said ive had them both for about 2.5 years and apart from regular fluid and flint changes ive never had a problem
like V said...with zippos you get what you pay for..the only reason the one in the above link is so cheap is cause its been around for about 5 years..when i bought it 2.5 years ago it was twice that price

I think it'd be cheaper for me to buy some two packs over here and mail them to you.

I think that one I posted a pic of only cost me maybe $2.

Thats what they usually cost around here for the same size/style. You can get a pack of 3 or 5 at wal mart for about $5

maybe im just looking in the wrong places... i dunno. part of me just wants to be one of the cool kids lol. but every gasstation/walgreens ive been to theyre way more expensive than at home...

and i laughed hysterically at ur stop smoking comment sarah. my parents smoked my entire life. hypocrites had me hooked on 2nd hand and wouldn't let me smoke actual cigarettes till i could buy them myself lol. and lauren doesn't smoke enough for 2nd hand to be sufficient lol

on another note, any tips on where i can get them engraved in script? the zippo site only has traditional lettering. i was thinking one might be a good random present for lauren lol.

You could probably get it engraved at a jewelry store.
