    The local Cabela's has always had a sign that said, "All firearms must be checked in at the front desk." Now all of us who routinely CC just ignored this sign and carried. I always figured that it didn't mean CC guns anyway, but the sign didn't say that.

    As of this week, there are full-color flyers on all the doors and around the entrance that say:

    "Guns brought in for appraisals, service, trades or sales must be checked in here before entering the store. Guns that are legally carried concealed or openly do not need to be checked if they will remain in their holsters."

    This is the first time I have seen Cabela's explicitly welcome open carry.

    So, whoever it was that contacted them, thank you! Good job!:)

    I am glad that I buy ammo from them.

    I did not see any signs inhibiting carriage @ the Cabella's in PA. No one bothered a guy who was open carrying.

    The Cabela's in Buda has had a sign up for well over a year to the effect:

    "All guns brought in must be checked in at the Customer Service Desk. This does not apply to Concealed Handgun Licensees."

    Or something similar. Glad you folks in other cities and states are finally getting the treatment you deserve as CHLers!
