    Cabela's Campaign - "How Do You Carry? TACTICAL OR CONCEALED?"

    Anybody else receive an email from Cabela's this morning? This link is a copy from Cabela's website of the email I received:

    I don't want to be overly reactive to this, but my style of OC is definitely not tactical. Sure, I have to practice awareness, retention, etc, but to call it tactical is inaccurate, maybe even damaging to our cause, IMHO.

    What do you guys think?

    This looks like a complete "ignoring" of OC. They present an implied false dichotomy.

    Sounds like they are trying to use tactical. Don't forget guys its a $$$ buzzword. Least they are admitting there is something other than concealed.

    I bet they are trying to appeal to Law Enforcement.

    I would also think they are considering Law Enforcement when the say "Tactical" also.

    That there may be others not covered probably does not matter because of the numbers involved. When a retailer is doing a survey, they are looking for big ####.

    MY OC carry holsters could have been "tactical" 50 years ago, today they are considered "Full cover hunting holsters"

    Frankly, it isn't even a "survey." It is just an adline to catch your eye, and get you to look at their "tactical" and "cc" product lines.

    wrightme is correct, it isn't a survey. It is an ad intended to get you to shop their website.

    I actually make an effort to not look tactical when I OC, so for me the ad is a turn off. I haven't visited Cabela's website since it first showed up in my email inbox a few days ago.
