A $600 pump-action shotgun and $420 Ruger pistol are among the doorbuster giveaways at Cabela’s this Black Friday.

Doors open at 5 a.m. Friday at 8109 W. Franklin Road in Boise.

The first 600 people in line (18 years old or older) will be eligible for the gun giveaway, as well as a couple of other big-ticket items, including a $380 Masterbuilt Sportsman Elite 30-inch window smoker and $100 Badlands Release Day Pack, according to a spokeswoman for Cabela’s.

“There is just one of each of those big items [at each store] but everyone who is within the first 600 will receive a prize,” Erin Taylor said Monday. “Other than those larger items (pistol, shotgun, smoker, etc.) the rest are cash cards, which are like a gift card.”

Cabela’s says firearm winners will be required to complete and pass a standard federal background check to take ownership of the firearm.

The store will provide coffee, food and trivia games for those waiting in line. The store will also be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving.
