Did Bass Pro Cancel Cabela's Internet Discounts ?
« on: April 21, 2017, 12:44:29 PM »
Seems a long while since there have been any Internet page BP revolver red letter sale price discounts. I try to check in at least once each week and it's been a dry spell lately. Have I simply missed out ?  As if I need another '58', but feel a tug for the Sheriff model.

I have been watching also, and their have not been any kind of sales on black powder guns since X-mas, that I have seen.
Could be that since the Bass Pro take over was announced, that  Cabelas stopped ordering inventory, in some of their lower priority of sales.  I havn't been in a bass Pro Shop in a long time, but if you go on their site, their isn't much in the way of black powder guns, except the modern type. Other then that I don't know.

I live near the Kansas Cabela's and Bass Pro.  No BP revolvers have ever been offered by Bass Pro I can recall on Internet or in the store.  Their Olathe, Ks hunting and guns section is located in a small second floor corner section as definitely a low priority for sure.  Cabela's gun and hunting section is very much larger and has cost me dearly. But, still limited to a very few if any BP revolvers in the end rack glass case.  Most seem to have always been the much less desirable Colt versions.  Only a few BP rifles in the Bargain Cave and have never seen revolvers there.  Have picked up a few closeout or returned Hornady boxed balls in the Cave tho.

yep now you have to click on each individual gun to see the price.
Liked the old way better, get quick overview with price.
now you will spend 45 minutes looking at each individual gun

won't make me want to buy, going through the extra work

Hi DD, just do a Cabelas search for pietta. All the Pietta revolvers has in stock will be shown with their price.

Regards,

Doesn't make me jump up and buy anything either. They want to play games we can hold out. :)

yeah I know, but why make us jump through hoops?

at this stage I hope BP does take over Cabelas,   and eliminates BP guns.
Some other retailer will pick up the slack.

I hope not.  The twenty minute drive to Cabela's and using their red tag sales saves me higher prices and shipping from an outsider. Hope the Bass Pro bean counters don't ruin this.

I wonder what Pietta thinks of the possible buy out  especially if BP guns like ours  are no longer stocked?
Don't know how many Cabelas sells in a month, but probably a substantial amount.
