I use to be a huge supporter of Cabela's. Whenever I bought a gun I would buy it from Cabela's. However, my last few visits were awful. There is this over-weight kid at the gun counter. He has curly hair and I think his name is Forest. Well in fairness he is a grown man, but his attitude is that of a child.
I put a gun on layaway to spread out the payments. I did not need the gun right away and figured why not take advantage of a policy Cabela's offers to fit better with my budget.
Next, Cabela's has a price match policy. I found a gun for 100$ less at walmart. Since I have always shopped at Cabela's I asked if they would price match it. At that time I would have rather given my business to Cabela's over walmart. Cabela's matched the price and I started to make payments on the gun.
After a couple of weeks I went to make my final payment on the gun. At this time Forest, remember he was the over-weight man child I mentioned above briefly, changed the price I had to pay. He reverted the price match and for some reason wanted to make me feel like a criminal for getting it at that price. So without going into how this is extremely ILLEGAL and UN-ETHICAL I presented my receipt. After arguing with this under educated baboon for a few minutes his managers came over. His managers then argued with me and a half hour later after being treated like a thief, upper management reminded the poorly trained staff that any price match agreed upon was a legally binding contract and the responsibility of the staff to honor. So that was great, nothing like wasting time to pay the balance off an item you held the receipt for in your hand...
So, if Forest is working or if Forest is helping you, expect sub par service. In addition, if in the event he can find a way to screw you out of something legally promised to you, that you have proof of receipt for in your hand, he will try to alter the price to make you pay more for it.
Totally on a side note, if you do go to the gun counter get Bob. Bob is the man!
I really liked this place, i still do I guess but only for items I do not need any help with. I am Native American , Hunter, Fisherman, Archer. I have done this several times to be sure I was not just assuming because this does not happen to me often, I get a number at the gun counter and wait while other people are being helped. sometimes for great periods of time, 20 - 30 minutes, while waiting I brows the weapons displayed and pay attention to how others are being helped intently without getting in the way. But when It is my Turn and I ask my questions and to see the Guns i have chosen to compare I am given short yes and no answers, i am cut short while speaking and the encounter abruptly ends with me feeling too insecure about what just happened to make a purchase.
