Cabela's
After getting home from the airport I decided to pick up a compass so I could get my bearing when wandering through the streets of various non-English-speaking cities in the next couple weeks. I decided to finally visit the brand new Cabela's Store and Museum that opened earlier this year just a couple miles away.

I've heard many things about Cabela's. In short, it is a Mecca for sportsmen. And I don't mean athletes, I mean hard core outdoorsmen like hunters, campers, hikers and fishers. As I was looking around, I heard the perfect example of the type of place it is when a middle aged woman standing near me excitedly told her husband, "Look, honey, bows are on sale!"

The place is huge and quite impressive and I could totally get lost for hours in there. As a kid, my friends and I would get these cool catalogs of hunting gear and we would flip through them looking at all the cool knives and weapons, wishing we were 18 and could buy them. Well, Cabela's is that catalog, but in real life.

In the center of store is a large display, approximately 50 feet long and 25 feet wide, adorned with stuffed animals and signage describing the different species and characteristics. The middle of the display has a passage carved out and surrounded by aquariums as well so you can check out fish. They even have equipment I never knew existed, such as UnderArmor camouflage that actually blocks your body's scent so as not to scare wild animals away.

This store has everything a man could want. A gigantic fishing pole section? Check. Racks of composite bows? Check. A lot full of boats? Check. All sorts of crazy knives? Check. Multiple calibers of paintball guns? Check. BB guns? Check. Racks and racks of used and new rifles and shot guns? Check. A 100 foot long counter full of hand guns? Check.

It's a pretty sweet store (and I found a compass). When I get back from vacation, I'll take my camera in there and get some pics.

You mean BB guns? How many Korean kids did I know growing up who had BB guns confiscated? (And then there's that story with Mr. Yu...)
