gander mountain used to be terrible about stocking stuff for fishing here in Colorado if you aren't a bass or walleye fisherman, especially ice fishing stuff..i haven't been in one of their stores to buy anything but a license in a couple years. sucks that they just built that store in Parker. sure wish Sportsmans Warehouse would come back in the shape it was when the first store opened here, seems like they seemed busy most of the time not sure why they left here..

there aint a business purchasing another business on the planet that's doing it for the good of the retail customer. they are doing it for their business portfolio. the worst part (IMHO) about this is that it further narrows the market and even in this nutjob deregulation driven market will make the merger of BPS and Cabelas harder (gives BPS more of a monopoly). which is bad for my 401k as I'd prefer to see my Cabela's stock inflated and bought off over slowly declining.

Sorry,but once bass pro takes over Cabelas the sporting goods industry will be turned upside down. Cabelas is is head and shoulders above every body else. Bass Pro sucks big time.

Before Cabelas exploded with growth (read when they were a family operation) I would agree with you 100%. That all changed when they brought on so much investment capital.

Now they are no different than any other store. And I hate to say that.

agree with this 100%. when the choice was pilgrimage to NE or catalog order only it was the best. now it's the same overpriced Chinese stuff as everyone else.
