Dick's Sporting Goods losing money.

It appears Dick's Sporting Goods' decision to limit gun sales to those 21 or older and eliminate AR style rifles has cost them money!  Now they are looking at discontinuing hunting gear!  Getting what they deserve IMHO!

    I phoned in and cancelled my B.A.S.S. membership because DSG was the sponsor for the Classic.

    I am glad they are losing money. I may not be an MBA, but if I was in the business of selling sporting goods and decided that I am going to stop selling sporting goods to make some sort of statement, it would be a dumb ass move... but what do I know?

    You don’t work for Dicks. 

    Which is good news on many levels.

    The Field and Stream by me is slowly starting to look busier compared to right after the announcement in February, but the lot always looks emptier than before the announcement.  The only reason I went there before was the convenience.  Prices were higher, but not enough higher to make me want to go to Cabelas or Bass Pro as they are a further drive.  Now I just go to Cabelas or Bass Pro if I need something now or want to look at an item before deciding if I want to purchase it.

    Read an article that Dick's is getting out of the firearms and hunting stuff entirely. That will leave them with the golf stuff and soccer, baseball, and softball stuff. Their selection of fishing stuff is lame and overpriced, so I expect that will be the next to go. They sure are living up to their name!

    I don't know how they can stay in business, unless they launder money for the mob!! The one I was in was like a ghost town and the prices I looked at where stupid high!!
