I hate Bass Pro. The prices aren't that good and I don't like the wait. Most of the time it feels like no one works there or can't answer a question. The only time I will go there is if I need ammo that day and don't care about over paying. I will never go on a weekend or evening either. A lot of times people will be there wanting to look at pistols, usually Glocks, won't even have an HQL.

Last time I was there a guy was telling me he wanted to get a .308 because his 5.56 wouldn't kill a deer. He said he shot it twice and it ran away. I told him 5.56 isn't that good for people either, and walked away.

When I want fishing gear, I go to Bass Pro. Having purchased two firearms at Cabelas, I'm just going there now to buy hunting and camping gear from now on.

I must be insane, you know doing the same thing over and over expecting different results. Every time I leave BPS empty handed and frustrated, I swear I'm done with them. Then a week or two later I go do the same thing again.
Today I went with gift card in hand planning to buy a red dot. Only two guys at the gun counter, no big deal take a number and stand by. Sales people are going through the sales of a shotgun and another shopper is getting a rifle. Mr. SG buyer is doing his background check, salesman is just standing there. So I tell him I want a certain red dot, he tells me to wait my turn. Ok, so while I'm waiting at least 3 green shirts walk right past me. Arghhh. Frustrated now, I walk over to one of the red shirts, assume some manager. Ask if only two people working the counter. He replies yes. I decided F it. I leave, come home and check out the price on line for the two things I want, then check out Amazon. Amazon is $30.00 cheaper, and I can get it tomorrow. But then I still have this unused gift card. Arghhh. Rant over

Cabelas seems to have taken a step back since they were bought by Bass Pro. Way too much Bass pro merchandise...

If you know what you want go online thru Active Junky to Cabela's 12% cash back from Active Junky. Cabela's takes another 10% off if you use 19club912 code and your club card. They also will take Bass Pro gift cards.

They might be a pain in the butt to buy firearms, but they do have XXL socks ! ( Not joking , socks that fit are harder to find than guns .)

Twice now I've stopped by the Arundel Mills store trying to buy a scope. Take a number, only 2 green shirts behind the counter. Stand and wait. Last time I was #9. #5 had been waiting 10 minutes. Put my number down and walked away. I'm not going to beg someone to take my money.

Their lifetime wool socks are the only real reason I go. I live in heavy work boots and wear their socks daily. When the socks wear thin I exchange for a new pair.
