I have $2500+ in Cabelas points.

What would you get if you were me?

I have great binos, spotter, bow, pack, shelter, range finder.

I was kind of saving points for a rangefinder bino combo but nobody is making a good one for archery yet.

Thinking of maybe a new rifle and/or a pistol. I don't have a pistol at all. Leaning in that direction but open to any suggestions you guys might have.

DT, you might save them and see what Leica does with their Bino/Rangefinder.

You can never have too many packs, bows or shelters.

A pistol will only take a small chunk out of that amount!

I honestly do. I have a couple tents and packs to sell right now and one bow.

I am hoping Leica does come out with binos that will work for archery. But I figure I can always sell my swaro binoculars and that would almost fund some rangefinding binos.

I doubt there are many pistols in stock right now anyway.

Not sure if it's possible to pass on points but you could always sell them for like 75% face value and spend the money elsewhere.

This^^^^

Patience may pay off on this one. We will have to see though.

Yup.....Now would be the time they (Leica, Swaro or Zeiss) fix it.....Since I pre-ordered the new 1 mile Fusions!!

Cabela's will be carrying them when they become available, if they interest you at all dirtytough.

If I had $2500 to spend at Cabela's, it would be used on a top quality commercial grinder, stuffer, mixer, vac sealer, slicer, dehydrator, smoker and whatever else I can come up with. That'll eat up $2500 real quick. Cabela's meat processing stuff is good quality.

I like the meat processing equipment... that would be top of my list as it's hard for me to spend money on those kind of things when it could go towards ammo or actual hunting gear. Butchering can get old in a hurry and having quality equipment REALLY makes it a pleasure.

Not sure. I saw an add for Sworo ranging binos and had never seen one before. I skimmed the text and was made to sound as if this were a new product.

A man after my own heart: too much stuff already and still wants more. If you haven't come up with an idea reading Rokslide, it probably isn't worth having. Personally, I would keep buying guns and ammo. I do that already, so why would I stop. Just running out of room to put the "stuff". I do like reloading equipment. Frankly, don't do very much shopping in Cabelas anymore as they don't have what I want.
