help me pick a CB radio

im leaning towards the
uniden pro 505
midland 1001z
or uniden pro 510

any thoughts. i know the 505 is newer than the 510 and the 510 is supposed to be bullet proof. and the midland has rf gain.
any others would be considered as well if they can be had for 30-35 bucks.
i just ordered the cooltech gatemount anteanna combo. now i need a radio. happy birthday to me. i love it when the wife lets me pick my own presents.

505 is a great radio. I have a 510 and its ok, but lacking in the looks dept. Anything from Midland is generally...crap.

Any of the cheap radios will be fine for up close but have horrible recieve. Anything above a Cobra 25 is fine.
