Bass Pro Shops- Springfield MO

Hey guys/gals, the fam and I are in Branson, MO on vacation this week and having a blast. We stopped on our way in Springfield, MO, home of what I think is the World's largest BP shop. It's HUGE. Here are some pics, took us around 3 hours to make it through the entire store,,, but believe me, it could've taken much, MUCH longer. Hope you enjoy the pics... my favorite 2 are the Geronimo bow and quiver and the first ever compound bow prototype, it looked like that thing weighed around 20+ pounds!

That's what I thought... There is another BP in Branson where we spent most of our vacation (just got back this evening)... and it was called a BP Outpost... it was like 1/10th the size of the one in Springfield! There is another BP in Columbia, MO which is around 30 miles from where I live and it's pretty good size... but the one in Springfield is like 5 times as big. Awesome time with my family and now we are ready for a vacation from our vacation! haha

Yeah, this one had 3 elevators and at least 2 restaurants in it. There were multiple levels and it's just plain HUGE. They are in the process of building a HUGE whitetail and wilderness showcase building. This thing is almost as huge as the BP shop next door to it.

The best thing of all... is that there is a small store next to this HUGE bass pro and it's called Bass Pro Catalog Outlet. Absolutely amazing store. Last year I bought a pair of insulated overalls (bone dry) redhead brand and they were retailed at $200 and I got them for $60. This time I got two pairs of insulated camo bonedry pants each retailed for around $80+ and I got them both for $20 each. There is NOTHING wrong with this stuff either. awesome!
