    I went to Gander Outdoors yesterday. A member here mentioned them in another thread.
    I didn't share his experience, although he seemed pretty focused on ARs, and I don't mess with them, so I don't know about that.
    But, I walked most of the store, and found it just as useless as I did Gander Mountain .

    If I see one I would check them out. Gander never had much for me but always worth a look at a new store.

    Agreed, most times I see a new store open I go in just for a look. At worst you wasted a little time. At best you could find a great deal on guns or ammo.

    The Gander Mountain that opened here and later closed. Is now a Halloween store.

    Compared to Academy. They weren't that specialised.

    Gander Mountain wasn't even decent when it was mail order only.

    In my town Gouger Mountain was the best salesman ever for Academy which was 1/2 mile down the road from them.

    I would look at stuff in GM and then go buy it for less at Academy. Evidently I was not alone. I would always see other people buying at Academy that were at GM the same time I was.

    When GM had a store in Sherman Tx I can honestly say nothing was a bargain (ever) and the rudest folks I’ve ever dealt with. Even their going out of business “clearance sale” was a joke. Was not a fan and didn’t mind seeing them leave. Academy is a better choice imo.
