Cabela's - Every trip gets worse and worse
#1
Just a little rant here...

I went to Cabela's in WV yesterday but I gotta say that each time I go there, it gets to be less and less positive. The store is over crowded, the selection is always the same and the prices are always on the high side. I perused almost the entire store and All I walked out with was 5 boxes of Herter's 7.62x39 for $7.59 each and a $6 Cabela's Multi tool for my get home bag. The ammo isle was picked over (just like any other ammo retailer) but what got me was the hordes of people swarming the isles! Not just shoppers but other groups stopped to bullshit in the middle of the isle. When you prairie dog over their shoulders to see product on the shelf, they see you and crowd together even tighter! Not really Cabela's fault but definitely ignorant shoppers...and Cabela's seems to be full of them! I couldn't find any bulk .22 or decent priced .270, .308 or 7mm mag. The only stuff they had was expensive as hell!

All in all, I used to enjoy going there and browsing but anymore...I enjoy going to local gun shops, Gander Mt and other smaller specialty stores! I probably won't go back to WV for a while...

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

It isn't just Cabela's, it's just about every store I go into including the little local guys. If it has something to do with firearms and/or ammunition the store is crowded and people are just plain ignorant. All the antis really need is to take a camera into a store and damn near everyone will be on board with more laws. Angry

Yeah I'm no fan of that particular store either... So I guess I don't know why I go there at least monthly. Big Grin

But credit where credit is due, at least when they do have ammo, they aren't price-gouging like even the LGS's are in quite a few reported cases.

I love Cabelas.

I only go there for hunting equipment.

Any ammo or gun purchases are done through the LGS.

a few hard boiled eggs and some grizzly beer works for me...it makes the most obnoxious smelling gas that could even knock a buzzard off a shit wagon. just drop it in the isle you want to shop in and just like that, plenty of roomBig Grin

I'm addicted to the butter pretzels. I am only 20 min. away from the Hamburg store. I use all the empty containers for shell storage.

they definitely upped their prices on 7.62x39 when the panic hit. it is almost double what it was being sold for. aside from that, they've been fair. I only point this put because their most noticible price increase hit right after I got into the market for it!
