    Dick's Slaps Us Again

    Dick's just decided to eliminate all of its hunting and shooting products from the vast majority of its stores, and may eliminate them from all stores later.

    Dick's has actually increased its profit since doing away with "assault weapons" by selling shoes, clothing, and other sports items.

    Riding on this high point, Dick's CEO has decided to pull all of its hunting/shooting items from its stores so as further increase its sales and its anti-gun stance.

    While this won't bother us too much, it's just another slap in the face courtesy of Dick's.

    It's hard to imagine they really increased profits, but I guess it's possible. Anyhoo, I won't be darkening their doors anytime soon.

    Probably a smart move considering very few gun owners shop there, so they're just another sports wear outlet, fuck em they'll be gone in a few years

    I know of NO gun owners who do their gun or ammo shopping there. It's probably a financial decision because they're sitting on inventory that just isn't selling because their brand name is TOXIC to most gun owners.

    I would imagine there is some sort of trickery going on with that

    I honestly can say that if Dick's was giving away free rifles for shopping there I still wouldn't go in. And I have one of their buildings within walking distance!

    I am very proud to say. I never spent a dime at Dick's Sporting Goods. My dog did piss on their side walk.
