You can order them and have them shipped to your door.. prolly why these places are closing down.

Yeah I looked at that, but the shipping is pretty high. Funny that my wife said the same thing cause I always come back with a little more...

My son's 410 bismuth shells cost $44 a box with shipping. Couldn't imagine what a case of Hevi Metal costs.

One more giant buying out the competition to give consumers the illusion of free choice.

How much fuel do you use when you drive to were you buy shells

I would say they are closing down because they suck. The big chain waterfowl sections leave a whole lot to be desired. So much so I won't go to them. Online is the way for me to go. I compare a visit to their waterfowl sections to getting seasick. Get sick and you swear to never go again. A year later you get excited about going offshore and manage to tell yourself it was a fluke you got sick on the last trip. 10 trips getting sick and you finally learn to never talk yourself into going again. Same thing with their waterfowl sections.

I don't believe they offer steel for a 410. The barrel is too tight and steel is non conforming. I pray that I am wrong about this and you can tell me where to get it though... lol

Academy is where I have been buying my shells. I take my wife's car... Costs about 10 bucks a trip, but I minimize the trips for sure.

Me too. I was mad the other day because Walmart had Remington 2 3/4 #4 and #6 pellet shells at $9.80 a box. Inflation!

I hadn't heard of this until now. I like Cabelas over Bass Pro, so that stinks, but we also need more options, not less. I also hope that Bass Pro at least converts the Cabelas stores into Bass Pro Shops and doesn't just close them down.

Agree. I also think the Cabela's store brand is heads above RedHead gear

I ordered a new pair of Cabela's waders online on Friday Oct 30th, paid the $30 shipping upcharge to have guaranteed delivery date of Wednesday the 4th. No waders Wed, Thurs, Fri, called them Friday and oops, they should be there Monday the 9th. So I explained to them that duck season started on the 7th and that wasn't going to work.

I like having options too, but most of the employees at Cabelas are more qualified to ride a skateboard than talk hunting or fishing. Don't shop at Bass Pro much but they seem to hire old guys that have a least hunted 1 time before in their life before getting the job.

TTU hopefully they'll have a brand closeout and you can get like 5 pairs of Cabelas waders on the cheap, don't don't pay for shipping coach

I have the last two $11 boxes of 3" #4 Xperts hiding on a shelf somewhere in my local Academy. Bet you won't find 'em.

I live 20 minutes from cabelas and I'm hoping if this happens BassPro will just take over that store. Better use my $50 gift card before they're gone!

Looks like BPS is looking to buy them out. Cabelas stock is up almost 25% over the last month, and that's is a good indicator they are going to get bought, especially since the stock has been heading down over the last year.

Cappy: This is Gibbs. You know what Cabela's does. They are playing a money game with all the building they do. Sooner or later you get to the end of the road playing the cash game. We need to support the Rogers and Mack's of the world.


Keep on keeping on.

Simmons is another good one. Local family owned southern small town sporting goods store. Free shipping and great prices especially if you watch for sales.

Big retail is really struggling across the board right now. From Wall Mart to Cabelas to Macys.
People come look around check out products and then get on their phone and find it cheaper.
