Soccer moms and back to school stuff for stick and ball sports.
Unfortunately, the majority of the people who own guns, don’t really go out of their way to support the 2nd Amendment. They don’t follow it enough to see the hypocrisy of Dick’s selling guns and ammo while lobbying for more restrictions on guns, or don’t care.
Not much you or me can do about it, except maybe watch where our money gets spent, and try to educate gun owners who aren’t informed or interested. Just like NFL support, each person decides for themselves where the line is.
While the article points to increased profits, I think it maybe just a little dishonest. The fact that they discontinued gun sales in a number of stores and sold 6 of their “Field & Stream” points to a major shift in marketing. They’re likely padding the books to quiet stockholders complaining.
Quite a few companies practice “creative accounting” to hide stupid moves.

Don't count out traditional retail yet.

Dick's Sporting Goods may have found the formula to thrive in the post Amazon world, combining the strengths of traditional retail with the convenience of online purchasing.

The Pittsburgh-based chain posted its best quarterly sales result in six years Tuesday, with same-store sales up 6% in the company's third quarter. That comes on top of a better than 3% increase in same store sales in the second quarter, executives noted.

"We saw increases in both average ticket and transactions, as well as growth across each of our three primary categories of hardlines, apparel and footwear,” said Edward W. Stack, chairman and chief executive officer. “As we head into the holiday season, we remain very enthusiastic about our business."

At 1 p.m. trading Tuesday, Dick's stock was up $7.43, more than 18% on the day, to $46.87, setting it to close at the highest point in more than two years.

On the strength of third quarter results, the company is raising its full year per share earnings estimate to $3.63 to $3.73, up 13 cents from previous projections.

The company was founded in Binghamton 42 years ago as a single bait and tackle shop on the east side, and has since grown into a 733 Dick's Sporting Goods Stores across the nation and 122 specialty store concepts, Golf Galaxy and Field & Stream, with 42 million square feet of retail space.

It is easy to increase when your sales tanked over the last 12-18 months.

Bound to recover some, especially with the holiday coming up.

I don't care how they are doing. I am not spending a dime with them.

Unless my local DSG was an outlier they didn't put a whole lot into the shooting world as opposed to their other items. The golf area was a much bigger deal.

Hell, almost regardless of item (at least for things I was looking to buy) they weren't very price competitive either. Once an Academy rolled into town several years ago there literally isn't anything DSG had that I couldn't find cheaper regardless of any 2A controversy.


If there's one thing I've become certain of it's that there's too much certainty in the world.

They are worth less than they were 5 years ago:

Probably easier than you sending my stock and cartridge trap you stole from me, back.

Well, when you’re at the bottom, the only way to go is up. Heck, Trump’s economy helps even those too stupid to help themselves. 😄

Dicks was never a major player when it came to selling guns, especially the type they no longer carry. They were probably contemplating halting sales anyway to clear out more shelf space for more profitable items.


Most people don't really want the truth.

They just want constant reassurance that what they believe is the truth.

Fuqk Dicks, I wouldn't buy anything from them if it was 90% off.
