Don't know If location has anything to do with it, but my brother-in-law who lives in Tn. has told me of some pretty good prices he's seen in GM throughout the South, and Midwest.
I was looking forward to one planned in my area, but it has been scratched.
When I do buy firearms from Cabela's or BPS it has been items on sale, and I have had lots of reward points, and gift cards to bring the cost to me well below what I could get antwhere else.
Not to get political, but with Bass Pro using Bank of America as their credit card bank I doubt If I will be buying anything with their card to get points. Nor at their store for that matter.
