    It has come to our attention that Dick’s Sporting Goods recently hired lobbyists on Capitol Hill to promote additional gun control. Make no mistake, Mossberg is a staunch supporter of the U.S. Constitution and our Second Amendment rights, and we fully disagree with Dick’s Sporting Goods’ recent anti-Second Amendment actions.
    Effective immediately, Mossberg will not accept any future orders from Dick’s Sporting Goods or Field & Stream, and is in the process of evaluating current contractual agreements.

    Maybe they are planning on making up their loses by running a sale on Yeti coolers..

    The decision to be politically correct or stay in business being made in a vacuum. @Tully Mars .... stealing that slogan.

    Better yet, support your local gun shop. Yes, you may pay a few more bucks but it's worth it to help keep them in business.

    Other manufacturers are jumping on the bandwagon: Hi-Point Firearms, Inland Mfg. Cease Sales to Dick's Sporting Goods

    DIcks is pretty much going to lose it's sporting goods side and become a soccer/basketball/baseball supply store, which was pretty much happening anyway. Their Field & Stream sub chain will likely dry up and blow away unless someone takes it off their hands

    If Dicks continues this trend they won't need an FFL anymore!

    I don't know bout y'all, but F&S is too rich for my blood. They built a store over in Hoover a couple years back and I went in shortly after opening. WOW. Pretty store, lots 'o stuff but WAY over priced. The gun counter was staffed by young gun snobs as well. The knife guys were cool though. Walked one of them through his paperwork for a suppressor while I was there. Gun snobs had no idea about it.

    The closest one here is over six hours away, but from the picture looks about the size and style of a Sportsmans or a Cabellas. Let one of them merchandise them a bit better and hire some decent staff.

    That's what this one was like. A high end Sportsman's.
    Sigh, I miss Sportsman's:(

    We had a Sportsman's Warehouse here for a bit under a year, back in 2008. They had everything I needed to really jumpstart my handloading and reloading. I stocked up on all I figured I needed for the next several years.
    Had I not done that, I would not have been able to shoot during the Great Ammo Shortage following The Immaculate Deception of Nov. 2008.
    But SW had spread themselves too thin, made too many bad business decisions, and had to close many stores, mostly here in the East. I do miss them.

    Mossberg knows better than to step on the toes of the three percent, having learned from past mistakes.

    For the past few weeks I've been watching (and thinking evil thoughts about :D ) the local Dick's store that's located on a major drag not far from our home. Know what? It looks like the number of cars I usually see parked in their lot has recently shrunk by, about, half—Half!
