Wonder if it is their Field and Stream Stores also? They said also they are not selling to anyone under Twenty One on any firearm.

Everybody wants to be so politically correct these days. Well I have one answer for Dick's Sporting Goods. If that's your decision, then I simply wont support your business and buy any sporting goods or anything shooting related from them again.
There are plenty of other fish in this ocean.

The Dick's Sporting Goods here doesn't even sell handguns.
Walmart has a better selection of long guns, including ARs, which Dick's stopped selling eons ago.

Our local Dick's did have some "black rifles" last time I was there. (last fall I think). But all I ever seem to buy there is shoes and boots. A great shoe department. But I can get them at other places.

If Dick's refuses to support honest, law abiding Americans, I see no reason to support them. There's a Cabela's across the street, plus three LGS within 15 minutes of my house.

We've never bought anything at Dick's as far as I know. Usually not much better selection than what you can find anywhere else and the prices always seemed high. Big 5 has some interesting stuff and is relatively cheap here in CO. When we were in TX, Academy was that store for us. And finally when we visit ND, my wife has fallen in love with Scheels. It seems to be on the pricey side like Dick's, but at least they have some unique stuff.

Dick's has a location from me a few miles away. I've visited twice in the last 10 years and to be honest I have more shooters than they do. Their prices are much higher than most LGS in the area, but they do have a great selection of empty parking spaces available.

They opened several Field & Stream stores in SE Texas in the past 18 months. I can't imagine that playing well in our part of the world. Academy is HQ'd just outside of Houston in Katy and when they pulled MSRs, their sales took a dump locally.

Only been in Dick's Sporting a couple times, have to pass 10 or 20 other, better sporting goods stores just to get to Dicks. Now I won't shop there for sure.

It is a long running joke with my wife when we drive by Dick's I always ask my wife: "Hey you want to go look at dicks?" and she says no I'm scared of the little ones. Always makes her smile and laugh even if she feels bad, so I always ask her that question.
Then we go to Walmart and I gun shop online at GunBroker.
