Here’s a TTAG Eyewitness News report from our local correspondent, Dirk Diggler, who sent these phone pics. After last night’s looting in nearby Ferguson, Missouri, the St. Louis Cabela’s store (which is located about five miles west of Ferguson in nearby Hazelwood) has taken precautions to protect its firearms inventory. The store is located in a large shopping center called the St. Louis Outlet Mall. Dirk reports that every entrance to the mall has at least one squad car on prominent display and there are policemen posted both at Cabela’s front door and inside the store . . .

Shit... if they offered minimum wage in store credit they'd have a brigade worth of armed rednecks on guard 24/7 before nightfall.

Pay them in 22. Also stock them with Mt Dew and Cheetos.


You can assemble the worlds largest neckbeard army. Keep the 22lr piled in the center of the store, they have to protect it... afterwards they can share their bounty. They would fight to the death for it.

An actual stack of looter bodies might be even more effective.

We could not be armed, Cabela's forbid it. However, a 1911 or Glock mag in a back pocket and a few shotgun shells in the front solved that problem. Not everyone did it, but a few of us had something to work with had we needed to defend ourselves. I never saw anyone carry concealed, but thats the whole point right.

I find your ideas intriguing and I'd like to subscribe to your newsletter.



Sadly the employees probly dont even get to carry at all if they are like other big box outdoor stores.

If I worked for any retail store I'd be willing to fight to protect it simply on principle. "You're an inanimate fucking object!" wait wrong quote "You've got to stick to you principles!"
