Soooooo Dick's is getting dicked. Gotta love it. Bankruptcy in?

Not even close, firearms sales are a tiny chunk of their sales, and probably one of the least profitable. Frankly if someone like under armor pulled out, it would affect them alot more.

. .as I said before, it has relatively little to do with the sales dollars in firearms and everything to do with what it does to their traffic. I am not saying it will impact them much or not since I don't have the details, but if they carry the stuff, it is likely they know the importance of it to their business or they would use that floor space for something else.

Mossberg is the first "big" manufacturer to pull out, and in the meantime, theyll carry on, selling other brands.

As for it affecting sales, the local dicks doesnt sell either guns or ammunition, since e day rhey opened, and its consistently busy.

I bought two pie irons from Dick's four years ago, and I haven't set foot in the place since.
Why buy from dicks?
Unfortunately my lack of business with them won't cause them any new distress.
The use of the word "but" usually indicates that everything preceding it in a sentence is a lie.
E.g.:
"I believe in Freedom of Speech, but". . .
"I support the Second Amendment, but". . .
