Been to Cabelas in Fort Worth,Texas. It is one top notch outdoors superstore. The Bass Pro Shops store in Grapevine,Texas pales in comparison. Used to have two Sportsman's Warehouse stores in the Las Vegas area but they're both closed. What a shame!

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......

Archery ranges in all 3 of the ones mentioned. Rifle/pistol ranges...
None in Sportsmans. Probably depends on store locations, & local jurrisdictions for Bass Pro & Cabellas, I don't know. But archery lanes in all for sure..

Re: Cabelas, bass pro shop or privately owned hunting stores

I went to my first cabalers ever in Allen Texas and I was everything I thought it could be and more. I can't belive you can walk straight up to the gun rack and handle all the rifles and shotguns it was great also the ammunition I was standing there next to a staff member and I was opening a box or 2 of bullets and taking them out an looking at them. The only problem was I had to spend $65 and about the same on the way back in a taxi because it was so far from my hotel never the less it was worth it. I envy people that can go there anytime they want. Everything is so god dam cheap here compared to australia so if I ever hear anyone complain about the price of hunting equpment and rifles and anything like that in america i will personaly fly to america and bitch slap you so hard your unborn grand children will come out well behaved
