Security Equipment Corp.



In this small shop, security means guns. There’s a prominently placed plaque bearing the text of the Second Amendment, and the entire place is packed with guns galore, from a wall of high-powered rifles to Glocks and other handguns in glass cases, not to mention a full range of accessories. Everyone needs a little security; on our visit, we saw a little old lady, a hunter and a man getting outfitted with a bulletproof vest. 1322 Young St., 589-0911.

 



 The old Quintero's mural

This colorful legal mural on the former Quintero’s Mexican Cuisine building pays tribute to Matthew Smith, a young artist who passed away in 2007. A member of the Aloha Family graffiti crew, he had participated in a previous version of this mural. Less than a year after his death, AF writers re-did the wall, each spraypainting their own version of his graffiti handle—Bhive. Smith’s original piece is still on the wall, second from the right on the bottom. 1102 Piikoi St.
