"Due to recent changes made by Reed Exhibitions regarding the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show, Cabela’s will no longer sponsor this year’s event. After careful consideration regarding Cabela’s business practices, and the feelings of our customers, Cabela’s will, unfortunately, not have a presence at the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show."


Source: Cabela's Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/Cabelas

From the ESO show site:

As a hunting-focused event, we welcome exhibitors who wish to showcase products and firearms that serve the traditional needs of the sport. Clearly, we strongly support the 2nd Amendment. However, this year we have made the decision not to include certain products that in the current climate may attract negative attention that would distract from the strong focus on hunting and fishing at this family-oriented event and possibly disrupt the broader positive experience of our guests.

Good for Cabelas, IMO.

I agree with Cabela's in dropping this sponsorship. Since the Eastern Outdoors and Sports Show has decided to prohibit military style weapons and large capacity mags from attending, then think all gun dealers should do the same and boycott the show/set up an altenate.

I think guns are good.

I love Cabelas.

On a side note, the bargain cave at Cabelas IS the place to buy socks.

Glad to hear this. I will gladly continue to place ammo backorders (that will probably never get filled) from them. And fishing season is coming up, too. All money I would have spent at Dicks is going to Cabela's.

CAB has been a great part of my portfolio, too.

Pleasantly surprised. From the thread title, I thought it was going to be the other way around, i.e., Cabelas dropping support for an event that had AR's.

Glad to still be a customer.

Good for Cabela's. The majority of their wares are hunting/fishing related. They are not attending the largest hunting/fishing show on the East coast and will potentially loose business because of it. Tthey are back on my list of suppliers; again good on Cabela's.

I guess they understand hang together or hang separately

They're not always the cheapest, but I always enjoy shopping there. I practically stole a pair of Justin boots from the Bargain Cave that had a small scuff on them.

Write to Cabela's and let them know that you support their decision. They are big enough to have influence. Hopefully other big names will follow.

I shudder to think of how much I have spent over the years at the Cabelas in Hazelwood MO. This act ensures I will continue to waste money there.

The only way the wife can drag me to the mall is going to The Mills (Cabelas attached).

I haven't shopped with Cabelas for a while but I will certainly give them some business due to their laudable stance on the second amendment.
It's gotten to the point where the news media is no longer a source of information, rather, it is now simply another resource for those asserting control over the citizenry.

How is running and hiding a good thing? This is the kind of event that puts a positive light on the firearms industry. So leave the AR's at the store. They could have still sponsored this and not brought any guns. They have a whole warehouse full of sporting goods. This is a cowardly act than should not be celebrated.
