I like sportmansguide and i do shop there , but did you ever notice that on the customer reviews there are no bad ones. How can you gage the product when the bad reviews are thrown out and just keep the good ones.

Re: Sportsmansguide

I belong to the "buyers club" and I judge this place on

A) Price
B) Delivery time
C) Returns

They sell a lot of surplus items and refurbs at bargain prices, so you can't really compare them to, like, Cabelas.They fill a different niche.

Re: Sportsmansguide

They're like the biker/hunter catalog.

I love them.

Forget overpriced gander mtn or cabela's, I'll take sportsman's guide every time.

Re: Sportsmansguide

To reply to your comment ATR, I have noticed that they have only positives, and it's always kind of skewed my view of them. I do purchase things from them from time to time, but I put no faith in the reviews since they obviously screen them.

Re: Sportsmansguide

There shipping prices tend to be high. Becoming a buyers club member off sets the cost somewhat, but unless you buy a lot, I don't think it's worth the extra money..

Re: Sportsmansguide

I just bought three Intensity Optics scope from them about 2-3 weeks back for $50 each. They sent me an email that since I spent $150, I could get the "buyers club" membership for free. I responded and said if it's free, sign me up. I got a membership card a few days later. I don't know if I'll buy anything from them again this year but felt I had nothing to lose.

Re: Sportsmansguide

I have not bought from them in a long time. I found I had a 50 /50 chance of liking what I bought from them. It was hard to tell the crap from the good stuff. however their service was always good

Re: Sportsmansguide

I am disappointed that I get this message when I find something I want from Sportsmans Guide - "Sorry, item is sold out".

Had a friend that would get their catalog and bring it over for me to look at. Never bought anything from them but I do look on their website from time to time. Just seems stuff I want is sold out.

Re: Sportsmansguide

I've bought scopes, holsters, ammunition, and gear from them and have never had a problem. You need to keep an eye on their shipping costs if you are buying ammunition.
