They arrived today as sort of a bonus at work.  We had to work an unexpected emergency response last June over father's day weekend.  A lot of travel plans and events got messed up, so they took care of us.  Darn nice of them.

NOW... what to do?  I can use them on line, or in the Dundee, MI store which is about an hour north of me. (With a nice selection of guns,ammo and reloading gear,  but not always the best prices)

Any suggestions? What would you do?  (Nothing really practical like socks and underware, please)

Cabela's prices on reloading stuff is pretty reasonable.

Good call.

If you don't have one, that'd be a gooood start towards a nice fire safe.

Does Cabelas sell Marpat?

Add $150 of your own, and you got yourself a 50 beowulf upper!

I received $250 worth of Cabela GCs from work.  I figured to get a couple pairs of Peltor Electronic Ear muffs. (For me and my gal)

But the safe sounds like a good idea if you don't already have one. (And have enough gear to merit getting one)I have a fire safe and found that although I have a lot of expensive gear, I have photos in there as well.  Gear can be replaced, photos/memories can't.

Got a safe as well as most every reloading tool you can imagine.
I don't qualify to wear marapat even if cabela's sold it.

The .50 upper is a possibility. Got a BM complete lower laying around anyway.  Is that round reloadable on a Dillon 550 or standard single stage press?

Dang you suck!!!


Congrats on the big score. Some people have all the luck. [;)]

I've been lusting over their 1863 Colt Army revolvers for several years now. Always wanted a pair of them. Add a brass powder measure and accessories and a nice box to show it all off. Never seem to get around to making it a purchasing priority though.

Or kick in $1300 of your own and get the 50 BMG upper.

Got a 6 X 18 Burris in the safe now with nothing to mount it on.
