    Default I hate cabela's!

    Just got home from cabelas and I hate how you cant go in that store with out them twisting your arm to spend money! I walked out of there and before I knew it I spent a couple hundred dollars! Ugh! Glad the closest one to my house is two hours away! Haha

    Sounds like they really twisted your arm. Or was it twisting your wallet like a wet dish rag?

    Twisting probably isn't the right word! Encouraging is more like it!

    They are getting ready to build a new Cabelas in the city our son and DIL and grandson live in 2 hours from us. My wife is already complaining about spending to much time there and it isn't even built yet.

    I disagree. I don't like paying more for stuff to pay for their museum. It's a nice tourist place,for sure. If I drive north the same distance I have triple the selection at better prices. It's more like a warehouse than a big chain store and they only have 2 locations in Michigan.

    Pretty much my thinking, too. I've got one less than an hour from my house and I think I've been in it twice since it was built, maybe ten years ago. Same goes for Bass Pro, about 10 minutes from my house. They are show places. For the most part their prices are retail and they have virtually nothing that I need. Notice I said NEED. They have nothing archery related that interests me, that's for sure.

    I've a Gandre Mt, store 15 minutes away. Kinsey's Outdoor is 20 minutes and Lancaster is about 40 minutes. I'm surrounded and no desire to spend.

    ive only been in a cableas one time. i spent 4 hours and didnt spend a nickel. almost bought a shirt but they didnt have my size. i could have got twice as much done in ten minutes with the master catalog sitting on the john.
