Default Is Cabelas slipping?

I have tried to find cleaning supplies for shooting twice in the last year, and cabelas is very weak these days. Bass Pro is a joke. I have had to place my order with midsouth supply or midwayusa or grafs.

Cabelas use to have everything and the kitchen sink. They seem more interested in selling clothes and shoes these days.

I just ordered a gun vise, and wanted the tipton model. They used to stock it, but now have the "cabelas brand". I also ordered a small tipton 12" cleaning rod. They don't stock this anymore. I also ordered some plated jags, can't find em at cabelas anymore. I like pro-shot cleaning patches, again not at cabelas. I just ordered a scope from swfa optics, cabelas can't touch thier price. Whats going on over there? It used to be my one stop shopping center.

Any of you guys find the same?

I've had a few bad experiences with Cabela's and ordering online. It seems it takes them about 4 days to realize I ordered something from them, then another 2 days to pull it an box it, and then another 2 days to ship it to me. In the meantime I could have placed 3 orders in consecutive days to Midway and had them all, for less shipping, and less overall price.

I did, however, order my EOTech from Cabelas and had them over nite it, hoping to get it in time, and sure enuf it showed up in 2 days I think. Then again it cost me $45.....Good thing I had gift certificates!

Online is the only place I order. They kill me with 100lbs of paper in my mailbox a year. I just toss it these days.

I usually use Midway for pretty much everything. But we did just buy a shooting rest from Cabelas and recieved it pretty quick. I think Midway has better people, prices, and service.

Yea I got a few of them. But they don't make one for pistols that are 12". I have a few long ones. Only bad thing I can say about dewey is CR-10 or harsh chemicals can eat em up.
