Gun Blogger Rendezvous 2010, part 1

We arrived in Reno Wednesday afternoon, and checked into our hotel. When we opened the curtains in our room on the 32nd floor, we could see the rain falling on the hills in the distance, while downtown Reno basked in the warm sun.

Thursday morning, after a hearty breakfast at one of the local restaurants, a group of us drove to Cabela's. If you have never been to a Cabela's and you like all kinds of sporting and/or camping equipment, enjoy shooting, or other sports, then I am positive you would be interested in cruising this fabulous outfitter.

Located out front of the store is this huge sculpture of bighorn sheep.

Handsome guy.

I am mostly a shooter and know not a whole lot about guns, other than the pistol I shoot, but I do enjoy browsing the gun library in Cabela's. There are many very interesting firearms to study and ask questions about. Gary was there to show us some of the weapons, and answer any questions we had. I asked about a revolver which had a price tag of $29,000. I wanted to know what was there about the revolver which made it so expensive.

Cabelas has a wonderful display of mounted animals from all around the world, an aquarium, shooting gallery, a restaurant, a shop which sells all kinds of delicious goodies including fudge, and much more to tempt you.
As usual we all enjoyed our visit to Cabelas and many of the group left carrying bags of goodies, either ammo, other gunny related merchandise, or in Mr C's case, fudge, which I will have to help him eat *grin*
