    Yes, it will impact both gun and ammo sales at Cabela's...positively.

    I doubt that inventory will last long.

     

    Gun makers will have long term, sustainability doubts. Meanwhile, CAB

     

    will sell everything they can get their hands on.

    I agree with all of the above. The only issue is what p/e ratio is placed on the group?

    Assault weapons and large capacity clips are the problem, not shotguns and sporting guns. Hopefully CAB will meet or exceed expectations for Q4..

    And you wonder how many of those firearms will be used on their owners.

    I wonder when this carnage at CAB will end... Even a good Q4 won't get it back to it's levels 2 months ago...and guns aren't even the meat of their product line..........Geeez..
