    Actually I just bought some Winchester .45acp ammo at the local Dick’s.  Between their sale price and the 25% rebate from Winchester it was a good deal.  Only 300 rounds.  I’m running a little low so this will tie me over until I can do a bulk order.

    I just let Yeti know they can add another lost customer to their ever growing list

    My truck came with a year of free Sirius radio. I was just about to subscribe when I heard one of their DJ's talking about his plans to join anti gun marches this summer.......... scratch one customer.

    Yeti has posted a large statement on their twitter. They did it as an image and have no clue how to show it here

    Their website probably got bogged down with customers of the irate kind giving them 'what for' about their decision. Could be an attempt at 'back and fill' or it could be their messaging to the NRA was less than clear. Either way, they've got some 'splaining to do!

    I've no use for a cooler that costs nearly as much as a set of tires, so their support - or lack of - affects me not in the least.  That said, for a group (gun owners/2A proponents) that is as vocal as we are about even the most marginal of slights, we sure are quick with the torches and pitchforks.

    Get crapped on long enough, and finally the return fire of poo becomes inevitable. YETI made their bed, flung poo, and is reaping their reward for it. They have yet to learn the consequences of pooping where they eat.

    Facebook blew up over it. Wish I had saved some of the memes I saw today.
  • tennmiketennmike Senior Member Posts: 22,993 Senior Member
    There's some good compilation videos on Youtube of people filling Yeti coolers with Tannerite and shooting them. :D
    And there is one group on Facebook that is saying don't blow up your Yeti coolers. Instead, they say that the cooler owners should put the coolers on E-Bay and other sellers at a really good price and undercut Yeti sales. I sort of agree with this method over blowing the coolers up.

    Protests don't have to make sense, or even a point. The Left has been proving that since Nov. of 2016! :)

    My point is that they claim to be merely changing a pricing policy and that NRA members are only one group affected by this.

    Just got a his email from Springfield Armory:
                
    DYLStyleBanner_SALogoAndWebsitejpeg


    GENESEO, IL, (05/03/18) – 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.

    It is clear where Dick’s Sporting Goods and its subsidiary, Field & Stream, stand on the Second Amendment, and we want to be clear about our message in response. Their position runs counter to what we stand for as a company. At Springfield Armory, we believe in the right and principles fought for and secured by American patriots and our founding forefathers, without question. We will not accept Dick’s Sporting Goods’ continued attempts to deny Second Amendment freedoms to our fellow Americans.

    That's nothing but total horsehockey backpedaling in an attempt to save their asses after they realized just much of their customer base they just pissed off.

    If you read the NRA's initial statement, it was quite clear what Yeti's initial intent was.... they're just regretting it now.

    Didn't Levi's learn the same lesson a few years back when they started whizzing on their customer base in favor of accommodating the lace-panty crowd of tree huggers in the Sierra Club?  I haven't bought a pair of Levis in years, and don't plan to in the future.  Some marketing types are just stupid!

    Thinking back on it I HAVE been to a Dick's Sporting Goods several times in the past. There's one in Chattanooga at the Hamilton Village shopping center. Gun selection wasn't much, but they did have some good ammo prices. Lots of Soccer Moms and other assorted females in yoga pants was the biggest attraction, for me, though. Target rich environment! >:)

    Their gun sales used to be good.  It was a guaranteed place to buy Remington 700s pre hunting season for under wholesale price after the rebates.  Now it’s a place that no one takes seriously for any sport as a sports store.  Again, daddy’s buying cleats for little league and mommy’s that have never taken a yoga class buying stretch clothing to go shopping at Whole Foods.  For anything sports related I can find a better place to shop in a second.

    That  reminds me of another big box store I went to a few years ago. They had a sale on softball bats that beat Walmart prices. I went in and was checking out the bats on display looking for several that had the hole in the end of the handle under the grip wrap. A salesman came up and asked if he could help. I told him I needed the longest bat that they had with the hole in the end of the handle. He asked why and I said I wanted the hole in the end so I could pour a mix of one pound of bird shot and epoxy down in the other end. He told me that was illegal for use in a game, and I told him that busting people's noggins with a lead weighted bat was illegal, too, and that's what I needed it for. He left in some haste to help another customer that hadn't showed up yet! :D I like messin' with the sales people! :p

    Both bats have been filled with expanding foam to get rid of that annoying 'PING!' sound when you hit something with them. :)
