I built the one in Vegas, & my buddy built the one in Henderson. I also started the remodel for the Sportsmans in Carson, plus I built the ones in Lacey Wa. Burlington Wa., & Nampa I'd.
Needless to say I was broken hearted when Stu went under. I worked for Eckman Mitchell & building those stores was my dream job. The Sportsmans folks that did the storeset & us construction guys were kinda like family. I miss those times. Great construction company & great Sportsmans employees.
Anyhow, long story shorter,....
I'd been to a few Cabellas- awesome stores- & built Sportsmans- also way cool without all the eye candy- but while in Vegas I thought I'd died & gone to heaven when I walked into Bass Pro. Holy cow! Definately worth a visit!!!
My only complaint was waiting at the gun counter for almost an hour until my turn, then got sent to the back of the line because you aparently needed to draw a number to talk to the folks behind the gun counter. Needless to say Bass Pro lost out on the $1200.00 in my pocket, & I went & spent it at Sportsmans.
Man I miss that job. I haven't had even 1/4 of that in my pockett since....
ahhh the good ol' days....
Ya go see em. They're as cool as you can imagine, & some stores surpass what you dare to imagine......
