I understand that a number of other sponsors are pulling their support as well.

Its getting heated here in Harrisburg. Its a shame hunting outfits come from faraway to sell packages and lots of locals are planning on not attending the show at all.

Cross Country Arms in Utah just issued a statement on their FB page that THEY’RE pulling out, too.

Hubby says local dealers are backing out due to the promoters not allowing some guns to be shown.

Best boots I ever owned came from Cabella’s catalog, I just trashed them after 36 years. Now I'll be looking for something new that I don't really need.

I imagine that there were suppliers of the banned rifles and magazines that had their plans disrupted as well. I wonder if they were given refunds.

The following are boycotting the show. I understand that there is no refund for the space they paid for at the show. These companies are patriots:

Call Cabelas and voice your support. They will listen! 800-237-4444 is the sales number. Ask for a supervisor and just tell them that you support them for pulling out. Unlike your elected congressional rep., they’ve listened!

We are getting one here in the upstate of SC next year....only one in the area...looking forward to it. I support retailers who support my country and the constitution.

Of course they could have taken another tack and said, yep we checked our inventory. We don’t sell anything called an “assault weapon” so we’ll be there with our full firearms catalog on display.

Good for Cabela's.

I think I'll thumb through the catalog tonight and see if there's anything I want.

We have both a Cabelas and a Bass pro.

That reminds me: I still have a Bass Pro gift certificate from Christmas. Enough for a box of ammo with a little change left over.

Just a thought here. If there’s nothing YOU want....would you like my mailing address?
