Anybody else get theirs today? This thing is the nicest catalog I have ever received. The thing is like a textbook.

    Honestly, I didn't think I spent all that much with them this past year.

    First one I got was the same year that i had a return.
    I think they put you on the list if you made the "we gave this guy a bad customer experience" list.

    Although I heard rumor of the leather bound catalog...

    Been getting the hard covers for a numbers of years now.

    Only difference between the first and the last one is the price on the products and a few new items being offered each year. Other than that they are all about 99% of the last catalog with a new cover.

    Maybe if they stopped printing that expensive catalogue and shipping them to 10 million people, they could cut their prices and be more competitive![;)]

    Amen, I put mine straight into the recycle bin, never took it out of the wrap. I do it all on-line.

    It's called doing business.

    If you have a company that makes a million dollars profit each year and you spend just 4% or less of that on advertising (which is what most companies spend on advertising). You are doing great. Bet that you would be willing and gladly pay $40,000 to advertise if you were able to make a million dollars for each $40,000 you spent each year for advertising.

    Perhaps your a big "VanJones" fan, and wish to be among the masses who "write their names upon a paper and toss it in a hat knowing the name they draw out is an equal life to their own"?

    Sorry, I prefer competition, and cannot help but chuckle at all the grief guys throw towards Select-Fire over here on GB, in an effort to somehow "punish" him for being successful.

    Perhaps Obama is the perfect fit for some of you, but, for free thinking, entrepreneurial folks, we prefer individualism.... alas, don't let me distract you, row well and live my friend, your life for this boat.....

    Email me your address and I will mail you mine. (There is not a Gun Library or Bargain Cave Section in the Catalog).

    I got mine on Friday, too many things that I want.
    On Sunday I took my grandson for a ride to the East Hartford store, had planned to go Saturday but he couldn't go.

    that happened to me too. Probably would have been in the store more if they'd kept sending the catalog for me to drool over.[:D]
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    And fiery auto crashes
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    While sifting through my ashes
    Some will fall in love with life
    And drink it from a fountain
    That is pouring like an avalanche
    Coming down the mountain

    Used to shop there at one time, they priced themselves out of business with me. I tried to stop them from sending the huge book with no avail.

    I've shopped at Cabela's for years, use the credit card as well, to rack up points. Pretty much all my fishing gear comes from them, never had a problem really curteous and quick shipping.
