Of course, the store has camping stuff and winter weather stuff and fishing stuff and other outdoors stuff besides projectile grommeting.
Now, not that I want to compare Cabela’s against each other, but in many ways the two stores that I visited were the same, still like an inverted nature museum, with the gift shop taking up 90% and the exhibits 10%. Sorry, I felt like I needed to explain the post title again.
The main difference is that the Maine store was only one floor, so its main-feature mountain o’ taxidermy was smaller, and the large freshwater aquarium moved to the back of the store instead of under the mountain. But there was still an equally cool array of exotic pieces and, most cool, a sizeable carnival-style shooting gallery in the back. The kind that uses lasers to hit targets to make objects in the environment move. Hit the right target and make snake slither or a can dance or a bell ring or an old guy in a rocking chair rock.
If that last one were true of all guns, I’d be much more comfortable with them.
Anyway, I don’t want to be a lost soul swimming in a fish bowl running over the same old ground, but I did want to post a few pictures from my second Cabela’s jaunt. Although I am highly aware that between these two Cabela’s pieces and the one on the Kittery Trading Post, I’ve exhausted this subgenre of oddity unless on my next visit they all go Jumanji on me. As far as posting about them anyway. I’ll still stop by every single time I come across one.
