Cabela’s Black Friday Freebie Is a Gun

Cabela's YouTube

One of the first 800 people in line at Cabela's on Black Friday will get a free rifle.

To get you in the door on Black Friday, companies offer amazing deals, but Cabela’s in East Hartford is offering something you’re not likely to see at many stores.

The superstore for all things related to hunting, fishing, camping and the outdoors is giving away a gun on Friday.

The first 800 people, over the age of 18, in line before 5 a.m. on Friday at all U.S. Cabela's stores will each get an envelope with a giveaway.

One of those envelopes will hold a coupon for a Browning A-Bolt Medallion .300 WSM rifle with a Cabela’s 50th Anniversary gun case. It is worth $875.

The envelopes will be given out at random and 40 will be for a Cabela’s camouflage hooded sweatshirts.

Five will have $100 gift cards, 10 will have $50 gift cards, 50 will have $25 gift cards, 100 will have $10 gift cards and 594 will have $5 gift cards.

The stores open at 5 a.m. on Friday.

In previous years, customers began lining up at midnight for Black Friday sales, but the store expects the line to start earlier because of the giveaways.

The winner of the gun will have to go through a standard federal background check through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. 

Cabela's is located at 475 East Hartford Boulevard North in East Hartford.
