Re: 2013 Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show

Didn't Cabelas pull their sponsorship on this due to them banning AR's?

    Apparently no black guns, accessories for black guns or even literature for the promotion of any black guns. There is a long list of businesses who are no longer taking their booth and the list continues to grow.

    While surfing a few shooting related web sites it became obvious that a boycott by shooters, hunters and regular show-goers is growing fast too.

    My hunting buddies and I go every year but this year we'll help the cause by joining the boycott. Instead, I sent a nice donation to the NRA. It may only be symbolic but it's the best I can do at the moment.

    I'm going so I can compare a few scopes. I don't agree with them banning ARs or related items, but I have no where else to go.
