This sounds like the individual you called simply gave you that store's opinion. I don't see why she needed to call the store at all in order to give you the corporate policy. I don't think this is in line with their corporate policy. The store and the individual you talked to seems to be in error. I have carried at Cabela's many, many times, as have many other members of the forum. My recommendation is to follow-up again with corporate and go as high as you need to to get the correct answer.
