    Dicks sporting goods...avoid

    Never been to one, but I heard on the radio they are not selling anymore "assault type weapons" nor will they sell any gun to anyone under 21. Hope they go under.

    They did the same thing after Sandy Hook, didn't they?

    Shameless virtue signalling.

    Hope they go out of business.

    Yes they pulled the same crap after Sandy Hook.

    I went into Dick’s many years ago after they stole a truly great sporting goods store Galyan’s. Galyan’s carried a full line and if they didn’t have it they would order it. When Galyan’s started expanding Dick’s bought their note and converted a great store into an afterthought.

    That alone one made me stop shopping there, and then they pulled the crap after Sandy Hook that locked their doors for me.

    This should be a major help to real gun stores as they will get the customers that leave Dicks.

    I've purchased a few guns from Dicks, when they were on sale (picked up a Marlin Guide Gun for about $375), but really haven't gotten much else from them, other than some fishing stuff.

    I don't need to go in there anymore, especially now.

    They're caving to the Neo-Communist (Dimocrat) Party. Phuk Dicks.

    This a New York "Save Act" compliant AR-15:



    What comes out of the barrel? Same thing as an "evil" AR-15. How much muzzle energy and velocity? Same.

    How is this rifle any "safer" than a real AR-15?

    Conclusion: Legislators don't care about "safety"... it's all about gutting, then repealing, the Second Amendment.

    We'll soon see if Pres. Trump puts his money where his mouth is.

    So can American males wait until they are 21 to sign up for Selective Service?

    no homo, but if that AR buffer tube and butt area were connected that would actually be kinda neat and useful.

    I doubt it will effect their bottom line. I mean how much of their sales involve firearms in general let alone AR's in particular? If someone asked me to name some gun stores here I wouldn't even have considered Dick's. Same with Walmart. I've bought ammo there lots of times but never a firearm. For me the two fall into the places that happen to sell guns which isn't the same as a gun store.

    Are you serious? One thing about an AR-15 is that it looks cool. I wouldn't touch an AR that didn't look straight stock. Funky "handguard rails" or "flip up sights" or any of the other crap they put on the rifle are not for me.




    Puke......... REALLY? UGH!!!!!!!

    My guess is that if they connected the tube and butt together, they'd still have to leave a hole for your thumb, and everyone knows that thumb hole stocks are particularly dangerous and evil. They bring out the bad in everyone who uses them....

    They just opened a new store here, so me and the missus went in to look around.

    This was about a month ago and the only guns they had were the usual Fudd stuff.....shotguns, bolt-action "hunting" rifles and lever-action "cowboy" type rifles.

    Nothing even close to "assault type weapons" so unless they were something they would order it's not gonna make much difference here.

    Sounds like they're just kissing libtard ass by trying to show how politically correct they are...fuck 'em I wasn't impressed by their cheesy store anyhow so no reason to go back for sure now.
    Where are we going and why are we in this handbasket???

    I saw a lot of icons on the Field & Stream Facebook posting when they made this announcement. Take note of this day ladies and gentleman; I believe Dick's along with Field & Stream just took the prize for "Dumbest business decision of 2018 award." Leave it to business execs in corporate offices FAR AWAY from their actual customers to piss off and alienate their own bread and butter. I'll take my wallet to Dunhams.

    WalMart just joined Dicks and will no longer sell hi-cap or high power rifles, assault style firearms toys (I wonder if that includes Nerf guns?), or airsoft guns, and won't sell ammo to anyone under 21 ears of age.

    All local WalMarts stopped selling any firearms years ago.
