    Isn't there one opening in NLR? Oh well, they will not be getting a penny from me. I always thought they sucked compared to Academy. I've only been in one & that was in NC. Didn't see much that impressed me. The fishing area was pathetic.

    The only one I’ve ever been in was in Chattanooga TN a year or so ago. Took me about 5 minutes to decide it wasn’t for me. Seems to me they are more set up for yuppies: golf, tennis, soccer, running and that kind of stuff.

    They can keep their yuppie customers. There are much better stores out there that still want my business and that’s who I spend my money with. Good riddance Dicks.

    I guess they figure they've already alienated all their pro gun customers, so they might as well double down on trying to please what leftist customers they have left.

    There are several Dicks sporting goods stores in the Dallas, Ft. Worth area. Their prices on guns are usually too high, & their selection is low. In fact, their prices are pretty high on just about everything. After this "destroying firearms" ploy, it only shows that they have named their store appropriately. :D

    I hate that they are doing this. I like them for the kids sports.
    I will still use them. If they want to lose money then let them.
    If a baker doesn’t want to serve a gay wedding then let him.

    I’ve been to the one in N. MS.
    They didn’t have what I needed. There are better places to shop.

    Ah but we know the Baker does not have the same options.
    But the buyer does, no way will I buy ANYTHING from them, I will not put money in their pocket while they hold my views in utter contempt & they have proved that contempt by this final statement.

    But to each his own.

    They're not going to lose money, if people keep buying from their stores. Losing money because of bad policies, will usually get the attention of executives.

    If Arrego’s, Pak Plaza Pawn and Gun, Fort Thompson, Mack’s or McSwain’s doesn’t have it, I don’t need it. There are plenty of mom and pop stores out there who can outfit your athlete and do it well.

    Better destroy their name too...I suggest they take up the new name: SnowFlake Goody Girls!
