Dicks should just sell harsh language.

Good thing huh. Gotta have thirty round magazines because I suck at hunting.

AR and AK platforms are the weapon of choice for hunting hogs at night down south.
They are also legal to hunt coyotes here in Pennsylvania.
It isn't about sucking at hunting. It is about killing as many of the varmint/pests as possible in the short time that you have before they scatter and run to cover.

PA hunters and trappers killed 40,000 coyotes in PA last year.

Another suggestion I have, another golden freebie for the dicks guys that may be reading.

I'd suggest hiring some people, dress them in long dark robes and have them follow people in the gun section around chanting "Shame....Shame....".

Do I have to walk around naked as well?

Not complaining mind you. . . . . .

Maybe, but I'd be careful. I hear that some dicks locations have hired a small number of japanese school girls that are paid to point and giggle and things.

If your timing is off, could be quite the spectacle.

Will Dick's still sell shotguns?

More murders are committed using shotguns than all types of rifles combined, according to the FBI.

Look up a list of weapons used in mass shootings since Columbine, you will find that the predominate weapons used are handguns, by far.
Dick's little show is a very hollow one.

I wonder if Stack actually bothered to read Floridas 10-20-Life law.

Doesn't sound like it.

This isn't about actual facts it's about feeling good, virtue signaling and rampant back patting until the point of orgasm.

Ohh, and driving down revenue, that too.

RIP Dicks.

Shame too, they're a chain but one of the smaller ones... and will soon be replaced by Walmart, who WILL sell you whatever you want, fairly locally.

I miss the days of the proper local shops, where you'd talk to the owner if you needed help.

Of course it's hollow, but it "resonates" well with those who's heads are also hollow.

Yeah nothing says capitalism quite like alienating a large part of your market target.

Most of their revenue appears to come from suburban people buying footwear and clothing, if you have ever been in one of their stores.

CNBC reported that shares of top gun makers — Sturm, Ruger & Co. and American Outdoor Brands — fell in early trading on Wednesday following the statement.

American Outdoor Brands, which was formally known as Smith & Wesson, fell more than 1 percent, while Sturm, Ruger & Co. was off 0.2 percent.

However, Dick’s stock price was up 1.2 percent on Wednesday morning.

If it's money they worship we shall use their greed against them.

Then they should drop the Sporting Goods part since it's false advertising.

I grew up in the era of walking in to pretty much any store and guns were sold.

Service Merchandise, Sears. etc.

It's an effing shame what the gunphobes have done.

Will there be a big sale on the evil black rifles? It may actually help their bottom line for a quarter. They should stick to golf balls and running shoes, anyway, as their gun guys are only vaguely educated about the products.
