Perot Jr. Sees Good Local Market For Pickups And Guns

Developer Ross Perot Jr. thinks North Texas will withstand any economic downturn as well as anywhere–not least because of all the trickle-down wealth being created by the Barnett Shale natural-gas field. Shopping at Cabela’s the other day, the Hillwood honcho told a Dallas real estate crowd this morning, he was buttonholed by one of the store’s employees. “Ross,” the Cabela’s guy told him, “there’s a staggering number of ranchers walking in here with wads of hundred-dollar bills.” The upshot, Perot says: The west side of Fort Worth is filled these days with cash-flush folks buying new pickups–and new guns.
