God Bless Cabalas!
 
HURRAY FOR CABELAS!

Cabelas withdraws all participation in the Sporting Goods and Trade Shows presented by Reed Exibitions Inc.. Many other retailers and smaller dealers are following suit!
The reason Reed Exibitions advised Cabelas and others that they would no longer permit any ARs or other weapons catagorized by the (liberals) as assualt weapons or high capacity magazines to be displayed in their shows. So Cabelas a major player and superpower in the industry told them to SHOVE IT!
They would no longer be supporting or attending any Reed Exhibitor Shows!
God Bless Cabelas for standing up for all of us and our Constitutional Second Amendment Rights.
Do as you will but if I see Reed Exhibitors name on any Sporting Goods Show, Weapons Trade Show or any other event. I will be BOYCOTTING the show from now on in all respect for the others taking a stand! *Spread the word!
In addition I will also be sending notice to Reed Exhibitors I will not longer be participating or attending any events conducted by them as well as for sure contacting my industry friends!;)

Congratulation to Cabalas. It's a shame that it takes a dollar to teach another patriotism.

History is the easiest class to pass but it's the most difficult class to apply to everyday life.

Back in the 90's, S&W was purchased by a British company. Then they struck a deal with the Clinton administration that they would equip their guns with special safety locks and other features. Since they were the lead dog in the industry, they also required that their vendors only sell firearms with similar safety features or they would lose their supply of S&W firearms.

Well, the industry responded in near unanimous action and Smith and Wesson lost nearly all their distribution channels. The company went bankrupt almost overnight and then was sold for pennies to an American group (the current owners) who quickly axed the agreements with the politicians and rebuilt the company to its former glory.

S&W's story is that no matter how big you are or how much clout you have in the firearms industry, if you crap on the 2A, this market will destroy you very quickly.

It's the outdoor show in Harrisburg PA. Last year ted nugent was there signing autographs. A lot of people are pissed and boycotting the show. It prolly has something to do with the dumb bitch Linda Thompson the mayor of Harrisburg she is making Harrisburg PA a ghetto it's pitiful.
