SW remains my favorite and closest store for outdoors stuff. I hated to think what it would become if that merger had gone through. They already have enough trouble getting inventory with the Biden Bottleneck going on. Last time I was there, the clothing section had greatly expanded, filling what had been part of the fishing and optics displays. I did pick up a Quantum casting rod and reel combo they were practically giving away, though.

New SW opened here about 2 months ago, they had some great deals on with the Grand Opening.
One of the best fishing sections in the area, good clothing section, gun dept. is OK, but like other
sporting good stores their ammo inventory sucks, and you can't afford any. Example, box of 12 ga. duck loads with #4 bismuth was $49.95 ( NS), standard cheap shells like Gun Clubs are $10.50. good shells like STS are $14.50 Lucky I don't need 99% of their inventory, but the 1% I would buy I won't pay their price.

I stop in the Cabelas in Eugene OR when I go up to Potlandia on business...

Usually a real waste of time, except to stop and use their men's room.

I do stop in less, as they have a lot less of what I need, and the last couple times I picked up a scope from them ( Cabelas house brand stuff ) at the register, they ask me if I want to buy a 2 or 3 year warranty, that is usually the cost of another scope.....but I've been smart enough to know what I am buying, and counter with why would I want to buy a 2 or 3 season warranty on a scope, that prints right on the box it comes with a life time warranty. You want to pull that rip off crap, you can keep the scope and I'll take my money elsewhere..

Ass' Ho shop can kiss my ass....

even tho I hand load, I dropped by the spot where they had what ammo they had in stock... yeah, and wanting 3 to 5 times what the normal price was before Biden, cheated their democRat asses into office.

Last time I stopped in a Ass'Ho Shop in my business travels, was down in Sacramento. People rag on old Tasco products.. they sure look a million times better than AssHo Products.. which carry Leupold level of pricing.

Merging or acquiring Sportsmans, would have essentially closed out me buying at ANY of the Big Box Sporting Good Stores...

and now Locally even Walmart has quit selling firearms, and ammo as of Last month here...

Tucker had a segment on Cabela's merger and vulture capitalism couple years back.

People should have been jailed for that.

Quote
There are some things that should be understood. The 11% share of Cabelas owned by the hedge fund and fund manager that is being accused of being the cause for what happened in Sidney used investors money to buy the 11% stake. The 11% stake was bought to force Cabelas into a quick sell position or an accelerated selling position. Who would want this? Who all would benefit from this? And besides, the buyer of Cabelas is the one that shutdown the Sidney operation not the hedge fund manager. Why was Cabelas firing and laying off people right before the transaction? This has been called doing someone's dirty work in other situations in order for the buyer to have less severance to payout.

We had a SW just out of Green Bay .It was my go to Sporting Good s Store.Then they shut it down along with a bunch of other stores in other states.Most mergers are either forced or because the Companies profits are not good.What you can hope for is some one to invest in them.Otherwise they will probably close down all together.

Because it would mean that Johnny Morris would own the three biggest retailers of sporting goods in the US.

Because they’d do the same thing to SW as they did to Cabelas. Cabelas before the buyout was a good operation with quality merchandise and good business practices. They had a good credit card setup with loyalty points and their house branded optics were good with lifetime warranties. Their hunting clothing was good quality. BPS got rid of all that, now Cabelas is just like BPS and sells Walmart level Chinese crap. Cabelas has completely lost my business now, I won’t even go into one.

That Sportsman’s Warehouse near you that’s pretty awesome would get totally revamped & filled with Chinese crap clothing and trinkets, then the prices would get jacked up 20%.
