@shannonrwatts We're raising our min. age for purchase of shotguns to 21. True to our commitment to safety & education, customers ages 18-21 can purchase a shotgun with proof that they've completed an official Hunter Education & Safety course. We do not sell assault-style rifles.

Orvis caved to Shannon Watts.
This is an annoyance but Orvis stopped really being a shooting store years ago. Thier store in Huntsville sells clothes and luggage, maybe a few flies. No shooting equipment. They are just an expensive Eddie Bauer now.
Besides, when thier cheap knockabout shotgun is a $3,850 O/U, it’s not something most 18 year olds can afford.
This list pisses me off.
Tell these companies #NoGunUntil21

Cabela’s. They are targeting Cabela’s.
Cabela’s doesn’t seem to pay attention to Twitter much, but I’ll say it here.
I am a Cabela’s Black Card member. I spent just over $39,000 on my card last year.
All my gas, groceries, day care, medical expenses, everything but emergencies goes on the card.
I don’t know if Shannon Watts has ever been to a Cabela’s, but if Cabela’s folds to her I’m going to find another card to spend my $39,000 a year on. I won’t do business with any company that sucks up to anti gun right activists.
