I sat at 115 pm to wait for gun, after selecting and filling out state form. Its now 2:56 and still waiting ... most unorganized and longest process to buy a gun ever! There are 3 people here working the area and atleast 12 people waiting and the line just keeps growing. Do not recommend....

I'm not much of an outdoors person typically but enjoyed going to this store. In addition to their massive selection of outdoors supplies they also have an aquarium, a cafe, a mock shooting range, and a large number of taxidermied animals.

No doubt the store is appealing to the eye, but as a registered gun owner I found that their prices (even their so called sale prices) were higher than Newington Gun Exchange, Southbury Trading Post or Hoffman's. Recently they had a "big ammo sale". What a joke. Every item was higher priced than the exact same item at Hoffman's.

Amazing selection of items. Much more than you would expect from a hunting/fishing store. Particularly love the large fish tanks, stuffed animals and mini museum. Wonderful set up

Cabela's is my stop for a great selection of ammunition at fair prices. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable. The only fault is their gun room often sells used rifles which have signs of use at higher prices than MSRP for the same rifle NIB.
