I make it a point to never shop there anymore

[–] Leg0z 0 points 32 points (+32|-0) ago 

Same. I was recently going to purchase a tent canopy. I drove 10 miles out of my way to purchase it from a Cabelas. I would've bought from Dicks if they hadn't pulled their recent bullshit. I will never step foot in their stores again.

Wait. Why would you not go to Cabelas to begin with if it's only a 10 minute difference?

[–] ToFat2Fish 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago  (edited ago)

You should email them that story. When I boycott places I like to let them know from time to time I just finished shopping at there competitor.

Same here. Their prices are terrible anyways but I will never go to their shitty store again. Walmart, LL Bean, REI pulled similar shit, fuck em all.

Academy Sports.

[–] ViperCarbz 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Academy is not much better. Per company policy, there is a 30 day wait if there is an issue with 4483 approval. Any other FFL can complete the transfer after three days if the ATF does not provide a reason to stop the sale. Plus, the ATF is months behind on looking into transfers on hold due to whatever reason.

I would not buy a firearm from Academy due to their bullshit holding policy.

I've been buying all my ammo at Academy when they had sales. Never set foot in Dick's since this cuckery.

The smarter move to appease their gun control customers would have been to just stop selling guns instead of paying to lobby for more gun control. I personally don't mind big corporations handing the business over to small businesses.

Let's not be Dicks, I guess. Anti gun sporting goods store? Really? Stupid on a cosmic level.

But it's all worth it because they got to show how virtuous and morally superior they are to everybody else

On April 17, Breitbart News reported that Dick’s was destroying unsold “assault-style rifles” and “high capacity” magazines instead of returning them to their respective manufacturers. A Dick’s spokesperson said, “We are in the process of destroying all firearms and accessories that are no longer for sale as a result of our February 28th policy change. We are destroying the firearms in accordance with federal guidelines and regulations.”

This is painful to read. It's like the cash for clunkers destruction years back of perfectly drivable cars.

[–] Thisismyvoatusername 0 points 10 points (+10|-0) ago 

Cash for clunkers hurts the poor to this day because of how it changed the market for used cars.

Pretty much. I remember some referring to it as The "We Hate The Poor" Act of 2009

literally destroying money for virtue points.

[–] Metaldrumsandbacon 0 points 7 points (+7|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Gun gunning gunnery guy here.

The process for legally destroying a single firearm is not just as simple as cutting them in half. It is a long and annoying process that involves destroying very small individual pieces, and logging it through a mound of bureaucratic paperwork. It is not that they are just losing money from sales, but also having to pay competent gunsmiths around the nation to do the work and it is expensive. They are almost undoubtedly being paid not 'per-gun' but per-hour, which means that just like the guys who are unionized working per-hour on road construction to milk as much dough as they can out of the job - gunsmiths will do the same thing to Dick's. They are milking the Dick's.

I hope they take their sweet ass time on every single little piece

[–] Black_Phillip 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

At least Dick’s takes the financial hit and the manufacturers just sell more to other retailers.

I guess that would have been a slight miscalculation of market sentiment: Alienating our regular customers in preference to soccer moms was ... unfortunate."

"our extra underarmor sales will easily eclipse our losses in gun sales"

[–] Thisismyvoatusername 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

That doesn’t even mention how they also started trying to get gun control legislation passed. Fuck them.
