    I did get a deal on a knife for my son there, . . . some 10 years or so ago.

    The knife was supposed to have a sheath, . . . it was lost, . . . price was cut like 70%, . . . son liked it, . . . so I got it for him.

    Haven't been back since, . . . now don't have any need or desire to try again.

    Dick's and Target are "off" my list of places to visit.

    May God bless,
    Dwight

    I don't follow the corporate health of hardly any stores -- but I would bet that in this era of the internet just crushing most brick and mortar stores that Dicks suffers greatly, especially when considering the competition they face from Cabellas, Bass Pro, etc.

    And now for their corporate leadership to do this ..... just shaking my head here in Virginia. Oh well --- I guess in about a year when they file for bankruptcy, we can all say "I could've told you so".

    So . . . they're more concerned with political grandstanding than profits?

    Not in any world is destroying inventory instead of selling it a good idea.
    "Every person’s life is theirs by right. An individual’s life can and must belong only to himself, not to any society or community, or he is then but a slave. No one can deny another person their right to their life, nor seize by force what is produced by someone else, because that is stealing their means to sustain their life. It is treason against mankind to hold a knife to a man’s throat and dictate how he must live his life."

    It was not a typo, and sometimes I can be funny. And I've been banned from SB for complaining about their censorship of that store's name.

    Upon reviewing the Financial Statements of Dicks Sporting Goods, I'd say they are healthy enough to not give a shit about any backlash due to their firearm policy position. They know that the vast majority of Americans really only care about being able to buy cheap but flashy shit conveniently.

    Most people do not have the convictions of those of us on this forum and while they may be upset about Dick's stance, the next time they need a pair of Nikes or Costa sunglasses, they will eagerly head on over to the nearest Dicks and hand over their credit card easy peasy.

    ****ing Shame...
