CCI caps

I bought 8 cans of CCI caps from Bass Pro.I must have had a bad batch.
They would not fire.Now that,s a bit of money.I e-mailed CCI about the
caps & they got right back with me.

They ask for the lot number & I sent it to them.He E-Mailed me back
& said there was a problem & will replace them.You can't ask for better
than that.I have shot CCI caps for over 30 years with out problems.

Crap happens, but when a company makes it right with you,you can't
ask for more.

Thank you CCI! TatarTott

My BassPro was out of caps when I was there last week. I wonder if they had already pulled em. The clerk gave me the ol' story about "Some guy came in here right before you and bought 2000". . . . . . That guy again!!! One day I'm gonna get up earlier and beat him to the store!!

I can tell you this.Bass Pro sucks when your looking for black powder stuff.
There more a fishing & boat store.There prices have gone up, & I wish
Cableas would open more stores like Bass pro has.

Cableas is a much better store hands down.

I work within walking distance of the Buda, TX Cabelas and buying black powder stuff from them is like going to a ski resort for lunch. They don't even sell real black powder.
But if you want inlines, overpriced Pyrodex or 777 pellets, and bullets with plastic patches, it's definitely your store.

I was looking for flints for a flintlock pistol I had picked up somewhere and all they had was sawn agate flints, about 12 bucks for a blister pack of two flints.

I buy from BPS only when I have to.

Which is when I can't get caps or powder over the counter anywhere else.

Prices way out of line.

Dick's Sporting Goods is even worse.

At both places the person behind the counter knows ZPS about black powder revolvers.

I did get a great deal on my black powder Cattleman at BPS though.

When a problem occurs because of a Defect in their product. I certainly would hope you were compensated. A little extra for time and inconvenience wouldn't hurt either. But I suppose just getting a replacement product is good enough for the majority of us these days. If your Happy_ with your situation's outcome. That's all that counts Sir..

I just bought CCI 10 and 11 mag yesterday. I guess I'd better try some quick.
Sure hate to get out in the bush thinking I have a tin full and no pow.

However Bass Pro is the only national chain that I'm aware of that stocks Goex Black Powder at nearly every store.
It may not be displayed on the shelf and need to be asked for but that's still a feather in their cap.

The problem with buying real BP in todays time, is insurance.
I have a gun store I go to offen.I ask them why real BP is
so hard to find now days.

He told me insurance companys worry about fire, but will
cover it, but with a much higher rate, then with just smokless.

Insurance may well be part of it but the main reason is Government regulations on storage these days.
