Cabelas has pulled out of attending the Eastern Outdoor Sports Exhibition. It's the largest annual show of its kind in PA and the refusal to attend was brought on by an announcement by the shows promotors, Reed Promotions, that no "high cap or assault style weapons will be permitted." Many other vendors have also dropped off and the show will likely be a huge flop. Call or write Cabelas and thank them for placing the Second Ammendment above the bottom line of their corporation. I am certainly going too.

I was in a Cabelas today, they had no inventory shortages at all that I could see. Plenty of AR-types and lots of ammo. Love that place, though it is a bit crowded for my taste.

It's in and on all media outlets here in Pgh. The promoter made the news earlier this week stating they were being "sensitive" about recent events. Cabelas commented that they received a large volume of feed back from customers and decided to pull out as well as some other vendors.

Might be nice if all the Face Book people would visit Cabela's Face Book page and give them a pat on the back.

I'm hardly a fan of Cabelas given their absurdly high prices, but I applaud them for this. Temper that with the reality that they can easily suck up the lost potential revenue from skipping this event; they're a huge company and have many many many millions of dollars.

On a side note, I think that Cabelas is #2 on the list of places that you could live for years on end provided you had electricity, #1 being Sam's club.

Never been to the Hamburg store personally, the Wheeling (Tradelphia) store is a quicker trip from Pittsburgh for me. I love Cabela's because they tend to always have what I'm looking for in stock. It may not be the price I want on that trip, but I realy don't mind hitting 79 South with a big coffee and a pack of smokes since I know I'm coming back with a new gun.... maybe two. :guns:

Makes me proud. Now if they could only bring their price back down to reality...

Cabelas is missing the boat in South Florida. We have 4 Bass Pro shops and no Cabelas. I think they would do great in the Homestaed area of South Florida.

I'm in Jacksonville and the best we have is a Gander Mountain which is an over priced joke. It's more of a Walmart sporting good section made into a store.

I wish we had a Cabelas in Florida. We don't even rate an announced location. (sigh)

The closest BP shop is 5-1/2 hours East of Pgh. I'd love to have one closer. Our Gander stores in this area, suck, period. Over priced and under stocked, all the time. Are you listening Bass Pro??
