    Yeah, Why buy guns or shooting stuff from Walmart when you can just go next door to Cabela's. Very nice store.

    Wait a year when they jack up their prices and stop taking returns like they did in Springfield. Worst company I have ever worked for.

    yeah i hope that wouldnt happen, they pretty much cornered the market now in this area for outdoorsman, i think prices will fluctuate and not just get jacked up

    Prices at established Cabelas (Lacey, Wa)) are pretty much 'retail' suggested price. Even the sales rarely prompt me to buy there anymore. Its my store to look at stuff, then buy online mostly, as there is no helpful employees there, either.

    I only buy ammo from cabela's when it's on sale AND there is a free shipping code, like there is now if you buy over $49. Then it shows up on my doorstep in a few days and I don't have to drive anywhere.

    Like most places, look for the sales. Shop around.
    THey will be the best on something one week and someone else will be better the next.

    I visit Cabelas in Springfield, but sale prices are high compared to Bi-Mart.:thumbup: Cabelas $65 vs Bi-Mart $49 or $55 for 10 boxes of Target 12 GA Ammo. Bi-Mart beats Cabelas every time that I look. Not even close. That being said they have a nice but expensive store!

    Anyone have any inside information on a future Portland/Vancouver location? Does that proposed Oregon City store still have a chance or is that deal dead?

    New rumor is at I5 at Tualatin. Where the Kmart is now. Guys that built Bridgeport own the land and have an established relationship with Cabelas. City wont confirm until a permit is pulled.

    Last time I was in Cabelas I bought a couple boxes of 308 Marlin Express at 27.00 a box. Then I went to a gun shop in Yankton, South Dakoata and found the same 3.00 cheaper per box. Why is it, a big outfit like Cabelas has to charge full price when they buy such large amounts, and a small shop in the middle of nowhere has better prices ?

    Add to that the recent article in the Oregonian about Wilsonville wanting to attract a Cabela's by make a zoning change on the big empty field just to the south of Target right next to I-5. Cabela's seems to really like having their stores highly visible from a freeway.

    I buy ammo when it is on sale at Cabelas. I order it and have it shipped to store since shipping is free to the store.

    Only when something is on sale but its nice to go there and maybe try or hold something and then order from Amazon and get free shipping and usually much cheaper too.
