Hey Chris, I just came out of the...er, library, where I was reading it. Cool :cool:

Between that & the Victoria's Secret catalog, there's "reading" material for DAYS :evil:

The $19.99 price you quote is for FOUR .50 cal cans. They are $5.99 individually.

I guess I'll have to read the words. I just looked at the pictures apperantly.:banghead:

I get:
Cabela's shooting catalog
Cabela's Spring (fishing) catalog
Cabela's Master Catalogs (I&II)
Cabela's Waterfowling catalogs
Cabela's Archery Catalog
Cabela's Fall Catalog (hunting)
Cabela's Winter catalog
Cabela's Christmas catalog

It's a rare week that I don't get a Cabela's catalog.
BTW, get their credit card-w/ accompanying Cabela's merchandise points. It's a nice addition to my current sporting goods budget.

At one time not too long ago I was on their mailing list under 3 variations of my name. That's right, 3 copies of every Cabela's catalog. It took years to get them to stop it. It got so bad my friends wouldn't even take anymore of the duplicate catalogs.

I recently received my first Cabela's fly fishing catalog. I have never fly fished or even bought any of that stuff from them.

I am really lucky. My work gives gift certificates for perfect attendance and Cabela's is one place they are good at. Lucky that catalog came to me and I decided to check out the certificate web site. Some nice stuff in there.

Huh. I just put mine down before I logged on. What're the odds? Okay, actually probably very good. Considering... gun board...shooting catalog... Gotta head over to coffee.com and let 'em know what I'm drinking.

I've always had good luck buying from cabelas. I recently special ordered a Crimsom Trace laser from them as was able to use a $25 "good customer" credit that they sent me. They back their products and I have never had any problems with returns. Plan on going to their new store in Dundee MI this spring. Can't wait.

How is their quality compared to LL Bean and other outdoorsey/hunting mail order stuff?

I take it they're very pro-gun?

shooting catalog in the mail
I asked them to send me one of these and they sent their fishing/fly fishing catalogs..

Skunk, their clothing is pretty good stuff, but not quite up to the level of LL Bean,IMHO.. I ordered six quilted shirts (both Cabela brand and a "lesser" brand) from them recently and most of the buttons fell off the "lesser" brand shirts within a week. Plus, the Cabela shirts have all shrunk from a size XL to what is now barely a large (and that was using cold water only).. :rolleyes:

Their service is excellent and the prices were pretty good. I guess the next time that I place an order from them, I'll stick to the higher end of their clothing line. :)

Should I request a catalog anyway? I like my RR stuff a lot but they have a small product line--no socks, underwear, and not many shirts that are passable for casual bidness, like LL Bean does.

Go for it. Their Spring 2003 catalog is high quality and it's packed full of neat things to look at..

Everything from $700 Shimano Stella fishing reels to bulk S&B shotgun ammo.[not a whole lot of gun stuff in this catalog though]

Also, their clothes are always on sale, if not now, wait awhile and they will be.. Don't forget to check out their website as well..

I am pretty impressed with this latest Shooting Catalog. All sorts of new stuff in there that was not in the last SC. Did anyone see the switch barrel derringer or the adjustable AK trigger? Damn! Too many ways for a guy to part with his money. I gotta stop looking in those things.

Saw this on their frontpage and couldn't resist:
