    Welcome to Texas! There are actually two Cabelas, and two Bass Pro.

    There is a Bass Pro in Grapevine TX, perhaps 5 miles north of the DFW Airport.

    Should be an easy find on the internet!

    I prefer Cabelas, as I like they layout and the hunting/firearms section best.

    Not sure where you are staying, but taxi's are readily available at the airport. Bass Pro is closest to the airport, and prices are generally very similar. You can check out their proces on the websites (www.basspro.com or www.cabelas.com).

    I would not want to do a bunch of driving with a taxi...it would get expensive fast.

    It's in October just bought some stuff of bass pro shop online, I'd be broke as shit if we had a bass pro shop or cabelas in Australia. Hundreds what would that be in celcius? I'm thinking of horsing a car how much would that set me back cash wise? Is itbgood shooting in Texas? Many good pubs in Dallas?

    Temps in Dallas have been around 37-40c, but depending on where you live you'll probably be used to it. The humidity is worse though. Hubbard's not far from Dallas. About an hour and a half. Dallas doesn't do much in the way of public transportation so a car might be the best idea. It's been a long time since I rented one, but I think it's around $25 a day or so.

    Scottish Mag is right about Cabela's being better for hunters, Bass Pro is more fishing focused. The prices are good, but the selection (especially the ammo) is weak. Besides there are a ton of local shops that can get you set up just as well.

    What are the cowboys like to fight there or something. This might be a bullshit myth that is in Australia but do most people in America carry guns and I heard texans are abit trigger happy. I mean no disrespect I'm just wondering if a cowboy fronts up and I don't back down am I gunna get shot or is it gunna be like on te dukes of hazzard movie were there's a huge bar brawl coz they look like fun
