I have a Dick’s a half mile from my house. I haven’t been there since they lived up to their name.

Walmart will continue selling all the ammo they said they will not sell UNTIL their CONTRACTS end with the ammo companies, as they dont want to pay the penalties to break the contracts!!!

I've never found prices better than on the net for anything I've been looking for...I'm not that impatience that I can't wait for a couple days for a shipment to show up. I’ll never purchase a Springfield because of what they did in IL. If we as gun owners would just “come together” there wouldn’t be any “bad” gun laws…there’re roughly 320 million people in the US and roughly 37% own guns, that’s over 118 million people, imagine what we could do if we all just got along? But we can’t, you have the high speed low drag types calling anybody that shoots a bolt gun or shotgun a “Fudd”, you have the “Fudd” guys saying we don’t need AR type guns, you have the shotgunners saying the same thing, you have the muzzleloader guys saying we don’t need anything other than a cap and ball gun…we’re all in the same boat!!!!! While one side is baling water the other side is putting it back in! I’ll say it again…we are our own worst enemy!!!


Why I stand with my ar guys . They will start with them and work their way to all of us .

My wife is non-political and hates it any time I turn on FOX BUT, she now refuses to go into a Dick's Store, She was looking for some UnderArmor Hoodies for work and Dick's had a sale on them. She refused to go while mumbling something about them and the 2ndA.

Trust me I did not respond to her comment, nor did I influence it.

I'm in Sarasota Fla.
The Dicks by me doesn't carry a single item that's gun or hunting related.

Drove by yesterday (black friday) and the lot was pretty empty.

Don't know what my local Dick's has in it, cause it's been forever since I've been there. Have bought many hunting related products from them tho online, and my wife bought a X-Mas present for one of the grand-daughters online from them just last week. Saved $50 on a hunting blind from them last week and the wife saved $30 on the grand-daughters present and it was the only place on the internet she could find it. Sorry, I don't feel I'm letting anybody down by saving monies at my age, with my fixed income. Still go to Wal-mart too, even tho they are going to quit selling ammo. Others are free to do things differently and I don't chastise them. Odds are this won't be reciprocated.

I find myself doing more business on the net. The Sportsman's Warehouse is the best locally. Otherwise it's Amazon Prime. Good service and no BS.

Locally, I like Academy. No baloney, just good prices on guns and ammo. Nothing wrong with the LGS except for selection and pricing.Usually they give better service than Cabela's. Last time I went to Dick's was to find a bathroom. Talk about desperation.

I cut through Dick's a lot on my way to the Mall. Whenever I see a sales person there I mention that I'm surprised that they're still in business. My way of saying I love ya man. I only go to Cabelas for primers and Rainiers bullets and screw Bass-Pro.

Whats the difference in Cabellas and Bass Pro, other than the sign?

First off, it is really rude to cut thru parking lots just for your convenience. Its private property, not a public road. Second, Rainier is out of business so you won't be buying them anywhere. Probably the only inventory left is the odd caliber that no one buys. And third, as others have mentioned, Bass Pro owns owns Cabelas. Might need to rethink your protest.

I cut through Dick's lot; about 11AM, the other day headed over to Ashley furniture from Bed Bath and Beyond and the only vehicle in the parking lot was about a three year old Prius.

If I had to buy from Dick's or do without........... I'd do without!
