    Just saw that Cabela's pulled out of the Eastern Sports show in Harrisburg as one of the title sponsors because of their anti gun stance regarding AR's and HI Cap magazines!! Great to see a big company stand up for what is right!!!

    Just think what would happen if Manufactures would unite and send letters to "city counsels", "County Commissioners" and State Governors that if they continue down the road of thumbing their political noses at "The People",

    No more firearms or ammo or body armor will be sold to them.

    We need LE and most are behind us in standing for the Constitution, But those over them and those that approve LE budgets don't.

    It would make a Great "Wake Up Call"

    It might just be whats behind the ammo purchases going on involving government agency's. IMO The winds of change are blowing maybe?

    HOLD ON!!!! Cabelas did the RIGHT thing here. They pulled out of this show because the show sponser would NOT allow Assault type weapons or hi cap magazines to be sold or shown. Hence, Cabelas said were outta here! You ban these guns fron the show we won't be a sponser. WAY TO GO CABELAS!!!!!!

    I got a quarter that says that Reed Associates terminates its contract as organizer before the week is out.

    That's a very nice list. We need to support these vendors and screw Dicks and Walmart. We the gun owners have a lot of power when we group together and run.

    would be more interested to see who has not pulled from the show so those companys and individuals can be boycotted.

    While a hundred or so is a lot it's only 10% of the 1100 vendors.

    Also, Cabela's or S&W can pull out without any meaningful financial consequences. They can afford to make a statement.

    I bet for many of the exhibitors this show is a make-or-break proposition. There are probably guides and lodges who book half their year at this show, and guys who are using this show to launch the widget they're building in their garage, at great personal expense. For these folks the deposit (or entire fee?) that they would lose is huge and the loss to their business potentially terminal.

    I have cancelled my plans to attend, but I don't think I can get behind targeting each and every remaining vendor. It goes without saying that it is a sad state of affairs.

    I was watching Cam Edwards of NRA yesterday on the Sportsman Channel and he was talking about all the exhibitors and sponsors that are pulling out. But going to the shows website I see that one of the prime sponsors is Progressive Ins.

    Progressive is owned by Peter Lewis, a buddy of George Soros and a rabid Anti gun person.

    As of about noon today there were 233 vendors and 37 speakers that have pulled out - and more by the minute.

    There is a list of vendors that have pulled here:
