    On the local TV news (Channel Five out of Seattle) last night, they were reporting that Cabela's is apparently planning to build a mega-store right off I-5 in the Lacey area. Lacey is about 60 miles south of Seattle.

    In the greater Seattle area, we have a crying need for some 'big-box' sporting goods/firearms stores. Although I have never been to a Cabela's, I get their catalog, and I have heard the stores are definitely worth a trip.

    I'm stoked ... wondering if it's gonna be at all close to the size of the Cabela's near my ol' hometown (Dundee, MI) which was about a quarter-million square feet of really cool stuff ...

    It'll be well worth the drive. So MillCreek, you still haven't gotten over here to our Sportsman's Warehouse in Silverdale?

    Actually, I get over to Spokane on business more than I do to Silverdale. I have gone to the SW in Spokane several times. Talk about your great ammo prices! On this side of the mountains, in terms of large stores, I can think of the SW in Silverdale, Sportco in Fife, and that is about it. Do let me know if you think of any I have missed.

    We just had one open up here last August and it is INCREDIBLE. My advice first visit plan on about 3 hours plan it around lunch time and maybe grab a Elk Braut.

    Very Nice and worth a 200 mile trip to check it out.

    COOL. I really like the Cabelas mail order stuff now I can go to see them in person :) Only problem is: Too many places to spend my money too little money to go around:banghead: .

    George, since you live down there, do you actually know where the proposed site is? If so, can you place it relative to the freeway exit that I take when I am going to either St. Peter's Hospital or St. Martin's College? Sorry, but I cannot remember the number of that exit. 105?

    Although there may be duplicity of products carried, it will offer a nice alternative and draw a much different crowd than REI.
