Interesting trip to Cabelas today
Made a trip to Cabelas in Dundee Mi today. In walking through the second set of doors and into the "main" lobby we were greeted with a table of three guys from "Michigan Open Carry" and they were all openly carrying. I didn't go to the table, I live in Oh and we have open carry so I wasn't interested, but thought it was a good thing what they were doing.
Then off to the right was an NRA tent and if I heard correctly they were offering a $25 gift card for signing up for a year membership ($35). We were there for about an hour and a half and there was always a line for sign up. This was also a good thing.
Now we make our way back to the firearms. I usually don't look at much seeing I can't purchase handguns there anyway. But I couldn't get close to the handguns If i wanted to. I'm seeing a lot of people that obviously to me at least have limited to no knowledge of guns. This kind of gets me wondering. Are these people buying because of all the news and scare about bans so they just want to make purchases or do they see the light and have decided it's time to arm themselves so they don't end up victims?
