    I do Cabelas, Scheels and then to Sportsman's warehouse.

Nothing against either SW or Cabelas, I've shopped both frequently, but one other major plus for Scheels is that being an employee owned company, owned by full-time white shirt and blue shirt shop managers, is that they are always willing to go that extra mile to help you get set up properly.
    I kind of have an inside scoop ;)

    Scheels is in Reno off of I-80 freeway. If you are headed east you will see it on the left side of the freeway and need to take the next exit, go over the freeway and take the next left at the stop light.....Jetspray

    I would say you gotta go check it out at least once. That's what I do with all the new sporting goods stores. ;D
