    Got to love it, the good guys are getting tired of the PC's crowd bullshhit and are hitting back. They want to lose sales playing the political game, they will lose in the end like all the other businesses.

    "Springfield Armory is severing ties with Dick’s Sporting Goods and its subsidiary, Field & Stream, in response to their hiring a group for anti-Second Amendment lobbying.

    This latest action follows Dick’s Sporting Goods’ decision to remove and destroy all modern sporting rifles (MSR) from their inventory. In addition, they have denied Second Amendment rights to Americans under the age of 21. We at Springfield Armory believe that all law abiding American citizens of adult age are guaranteed this sacred right under our Constitution."

                Dick’s Sporting Goods Faces Challenging Future After Sales Drop Due To Gun Sale Policies
                Posted by Brandon Curtis, November 30, 2018
                The retail giant is becoming smaller by the quarter, and now they’re debating a big change in the items they sell in order to regain the lost revenue.

                After the Parkland school shooting that left 17 dead, Dick’s Sporting Goods made the decision to stop selling ‘assault rifles’ at all of it’s locations, as well as enacting an age restriction for the purchase of all firearms.

                Now, the company is feeling the ramifications of those decisions, and admits that its poor performance is likely due to the above mentioned policies.

                The sports equipment retailer posted a same-store sales decline of 3.9 percent in its fiscal third quarter. Net sales fell 4.5 percent to $1.86 billion – a drop that company executives attributed to weak performance in its hunting and electronics category.

                Because of the changes in firearm policies, less hunters are shopping at the sporting goods chain.

                In 10 of the poorer-performing stores, they replaced hunting gear with other items that perform better, such as baseball equipment.

                Shares fell over 7% on Thursday when the new quarter results were made public.

                  Yes, it is. The Invisible Hand of the Marketplace once again makes itself felt.

                    Best 1911 on the market IMO. Here's my tactical. When I took my concealed my two cop instructors with over 50 years experience went wild over it.

                      I’ve got a few, don’t shoot my RO enough, like it looking like new. My carry is a Taurus 1911. I trust it and shoot well with it. I also don’t worry if it gets scratched up.

                      Field and Stream is anti gun. Dagwood may as well be anti sandwich.

                          Not surprising, after all their demand is probably dropping pretty fast, I might charge them more because their volumes are decreasing if I actually sold to them in the past.

                          We Conservative & Libertarians have to keep standing up for our Freedoms.

                          NOTHING hurts more than when you get them in the wallet!

                          So what is next…Since concussions are associated with brain damage will they stop selling Football and Boxing equipment without a permission slip from mommy?

                          And without getting Ugly...This not my intension but will posters like Ava, Politi, Windy, Coach…Please look at what you are losing or have the potential to lose.

                          Just yesterday when I asked Windy: Individual or Government and Privacy or Security…He chose Government and Society over Individual Freedom.

                          When it comes down to it, does anyone really believe Big Government and Big Business know what’s best for YOU (the Individual)?

                          When I read 90% of confrontations are 10 feet or less i went with a Bond Arms 3.5 inch barrel derringer. One barrel 45 long colt hollow point. Other is 410 shotgun slugs (4).

                          Don't ever post a title again with the words "Cuts Dicks off" in it.

                          You made me cringe.

                            That apostrophe in the thread title really changes the meaning of the thread.

                            Almost all armed conflicts are within 7 feet or less. That is astonishing how close CQB is and sometimes a gun is useless at that range, especially closer. If you are within arms reach, your firearm will be useless against a lot of trained people. If someone is less than 7 feet and you have to pull your firearm, you better pull it and start shooting immediately. 10 feet out you stand a good chance to hold them at bay without firing, but if they so much as twitch, you better shoot. 10 feet is not that far and then you have to hit a moving target.

                            Get a hammerless revolver, .38 type, with +p ammo. .357 is what I carry, but I am a rather large man and a .38 feels small in my hand. But up close and personal I will just use my hands anyway.

                                The management works very hard to make sure the community is running the best software, best designs, and all the other bells and whistles. Care to buy us a non-alcoholic Zima? We'd really appreciate it! Just click the "Donate" tab at the top of the page.
