Cabela's Hartford Ct

Sat i took the wife on a road trip to the Cabela's which opened last oct in Hartford. It's an easy trip less than 2 hrs from here and about 2:15 from Albany area. First thing i noticed was the big parking lot was Packed.
 

 
i had made a list from the catalog on things i needed, then things i wanted. Let me say the do NOT carry every item and i checked off about 1/2 the items from my list. They are big on Hunting and the gear selection was fantasitc, however they have a TERRIBLE fly fishing selection.
One thing i did like was some things i wanted to look at before i purchessed them which i'm glad i did because it made me change to better upgrades on some items.
They do have LEAD split shot which was fantastic, i bought 8lbs of everything from size BB,3/0,#7 & #5 i don't think there is any lead left in Ct. (LOL) As for the store , there are plenty of displays and a shooting gallery for kids with also a food cafe .
it was worth the trip but i will buy most items on-line and from local fly shops .

    Tuna:  You forgot to mention all the shopping opportunities for women and the stuff you found for your wife.  What gives?
