Dick’s stopping gun sales is about like Cabela’s stopping selling yoga pants.

This is the title of the article: Dick's Sporting Goods posts best sales quarter in six years.

Surprising.


We may know the time Ben Carson lied, but does anyone know the time Hillary Clinton told the truth?

Immersing oneself in progressive lieberalism is no different than bathing in the sewage of Hell.

I question the accuracy of the article. If you'll notice, it said it was founded 42 years ago. They're off by about 30 years. It's about the same age I am. I can remember when it was a mom and pop place, one of the best gun shops in that area.

Stack, who has been running the company since inheriting it from his father in the 1980s, has taken a very public stand on strict controls for semiautomatic weapons that brought pointed criticism from gun rights advocates and praise from opponents.

During the quarter, Dick's sold eight Field & Stream stores, targeted to outdoor enthusiasts, to Sportsman's Warehouse for $28 million.

Company officials made no announcement on additional hunting. department closings in the 600 stores in which the segment remains, though Stack hinted the company may announce the unloading of the remaining Field & Stream stores in the near future.

"A strategic review of our hunt business is continuing," Lee Belitsky, chief financial officer, said during an hourlong conference call with analysts.

To be honest, after they first opened, I never went there anyway. Their stuff was usually marked up over LGS stores, and their selection wasn’t as good. Plenty of popular models in popular calibers, but not a whole lot else, especially for a gun enthusiast. It was aimed at Fudds from the time they outgrew their tackle shop roots.

I was in a Dick's one time. I saw no bargains and their guns were way over priced. I won't be going back.

First they crush $500,000 worth of evial assault weapons. How does that make a shareholder feel? Then they lose a quarter billion with their stupid 21 year old to buy a gun rule. This "headline" is like bragging about getting dogschitt off your shoe.

Never been and can’t see a reason now. I’m guessing I’m not their target audience.

Best sales do not mean best profits. When you have to mark your whole inventory down 25% just to drive sales for a few days, that’s called desperation.

Touting “sales” numbers is something they needed to do to gain a small bump in share prices to calm the board. It will not last.

If you can’t read between lines on this, you do not understand the retail market at all.
