I like Sportsman's. Hope BPS doesn't screw them up like they did Cabellas.

that!

I loved our Sportsmans when we had one. it was on my way home from work, had an awesome inventory, and prices were excellent.

only real supply of reloading components in the area, too.

What hurt me, I bought a lot of clearance Cabelas brand everything. Bought stuff at the bargain cave when it was a bargain.

My daughters worked at our local SW. Not much over minimum wage,.. but pro items prices and access to clearance items went a long ways
