MTLeadFarmer and I went to the City last Friday night on a powder run and as a matter of course, stopped by Cabelas. I'm definitely not a fan of Cabelas but MTL evidently knows better and made a bee line for the Bargain Cave area where we found a rack of about thirty Vortex Viper scopes. These were factory rebuilds/refurbished units carrying full warranty and looking brand new in the box with all the papers and such. We both bought Viper PST 6-24X50, First Focal Plane scopes for $440 each, and on a separate promotional offering, Cabelas was giving a set of $60 Viper Rings with any 30mm Vortex scope purchase. When we got to the checkout, the nice cashier also took off 10% on each scope for an outfitter's discount. Free rings and $396 out the door. That was a hell of a discount.
The floor manager told us that Vortex ships Cabelas these scopes every couple of months so if you are planning a trip to the US, and there is a Cabelas near your destination, you might want to go on-line and look under "Bargain Cave" to see if the store local to you has any. They will ship between stores for free. Just an FYI, eh?
I guess I shouldn't be so hard on Cabelas. Maybe even stop in there more often....~Muir
