The Good

  • Customer Service
  • Great Variety of Products
  • Return Policy

The online categories customers can choose from on the company's website include hunting and fishing, shooting, boating, camping, auto and ATV, clothing and footwear, home and cabin, and hobbies.  

Customer Service

Cabela's provides a reliable customer service page on their company website. This page includes frequently asked questions, a customer service email, a live chat system, and a phone number.

The Bad

  • Not Focused on Firearms
  • Limited Selection
  • Price Range
  • Return Policy Restrictions

Not Focused on Firearms

Since Cabela's is not solely a firearms and ammunition retailer, they are not as devoted to guns and ammunition department as others.

They lack in the gun and ammunition selection because of their wide interests, hurt the gun owners in trying to find what they want to buy. Also, their price range tends to sit on the more expensive end of the spectrum, causing a jam for those that are on tight budgets. 

Limited Selection

Cabela's does not only have a guns and ammo department because they all specialize on the entire outdoor platform. Because of this broad outdoor focus, Cabela's does not have as wide of a selection of guns as other online stores do. 

Price Range

While there are inexpensive guns available, the majority of their quality products are extremely pricey. Their selection may not be the best for the first-time buyer. 

Return Policy Restrictions

Although Cabela's has a great 90-day return policy, there are some restrictions. Items that cannot be returned include firearms, black-powder guns, ammunition, gunpowder, primers, treestands, gasoline-powered items, boats, trailers, ATVs/UTVs, tractors, tractor implements, and Bargain Cave items.

The Bottom Line

Cabela's is a great store for those that love the great outdoors and everything encompassed by that.

They generally offer great customer service, helpful online tools, and a wide variety of products.

However, since they cover so many different aspects to the outdoors, they do not have the same resources to put into their firearms and ammunition department, making it hard to compete with other dealers. They also have return policy restrictions and a high price range.

Overall, they are a great store to shop if the customer knows exactly what they want, otherwise, this would be a difficult store to start out getting a gun from.

Great stores and friendly customer service. Very helplful staff, Willing to work with others. They could use more choices of hunting boots and have a better selection of guns and ammo and they give at least 15% in military discounts for military and veterans

It’s a great place to go if you have the money,but it’s more like a theme park. I was there to get 9mm ammunition and they said they have been out of stock.But it was nice to see the decorations and everything.Otherwise your spending 80 to 100 dollars on a sweater

I am an avid handgun & rifle sportsman. I like to shoot and enjoy new firearms as they come to market. I absolutely love Cabela's as a leader in outdoor activity. They carry the best inventories and the best supplies. Their customer service people are first rate as well. There isn't a better source of handguns or rifles and such for outdoor fanatics like myself. They keep the sport healthy with safety, and follow all the regulation as needed, as a trusted source should.

I have shopped at Cabelas for shoes and socks. Mostly for hiking needs. Customer service was always positive and efficient. Products very well made and long lasting. I purchased some anti-blister socks for a very long 20 mile walk I participated in. I ended the long journey blister free!! My kids love to look at all the fresh water fish, and fake animals throughout the store. Great place to just visit for fun as well.

Cabela's is one of my all time favorite stores. There is a store just a few minutes from my house, and they have EVERYTHING you could ever need from guns and ammo to camping gear, and everything in between. Their prices are almost always one of the lowest, and if they don't have it in store, it is usually online. Great company.

Great store! Always have a lot in stock. We have bought a few guns there and their prices were usually very competitive (occasionally there are better deals a sportsman or other local stores). Great quality guns and AMO. And fun store to walk around with kids (Stuffed animals everywhere and fish tanks)

Cabelas is heaven on earth. I have gone to cabelas with my Dad a lot, and we are always pleased with the products we get there. Prices can be steep, but they’re definitely reliable products, and I haven’t had many experiences with Cabelas that haven to been positive.
