The history of Cabela's
Cabela's started out in 1961, when a guy named Richard Cabela bought some fishing flies and decided to re-sell them through local newspaper ads. He gradually started selling more and more products that way, and two years later, his brother Jim joined the business, too.
Now, there are 82 Cabela's stores in the U.S. and Canada, and they bring in over $3 billion in sales every year. Sales of their hunting products make up about half of that $3 billion.
Starting in 2012, they began opening Cabela's Outpost shops, which are aimed at customers in smaller towns and cities that aren't big enough to support a regular Cabela's store.
Cabela’s YouTube videos include one that teaches viewers how to store their guns safely at home.
Cabela’s outdoor stores sell products you might need for hunting, fishing, camping, and shooting. On their YouTube channel, they have a range of videos, including one to teach gun owners how to store their firearms safely at home.
They offer options such as gun safes, and have tips for how to select an appropriate gun safe (make sure it has at least 11-gauge steel walls and safe guards, for instance).
They also recommend different types of locks for gun safes, cleaning guns before storing them, and keeping ammunition separate from firearms.
