    Go to their site and tell them. I told them they lost 600 gun club members because of their stupidity. It turns out the origial Dick's son has the company now and does not like guns.

    Happy Spandex to him. Yuppie crap will not sell well when times get rugged.

    All the gun manufactures should charge them a restocking fee of 100% from the guns they won't sell now.
    I will never go back in a Dicks

    Sue them. You do have a contract with them and now they are not for filling their end of the contract. They are now changing their agreement and not completing their side. Its not like they can't get the gun at all they just don't want to. Why should it be your fault.

    Take the case to your area small claims court with your paperwork. You don't need a lawyer but what you have to show the court about the agreement.

    To me its the principal of the matter.

    I used to go in there for golf stuff, I stopped going in there for even that several years ago. Horrible prices, uninformed staff, not a very good selection. Even before this dumb decision they had removed any need for me to spend money there. Way too many other places who are more than willing to treat me like a customer should be treated, I don't have to put up with the combination of arrogance and ignorance.

    This is just the frosting on the cake, because Dick's well and truly sucks anyway. Crappy inventory of inferior products.

    We always liked to call them "DORKS" Sporting Goods, of course my pals and I have always been kind of classy.

    I can't see how these big box stores have so many repeat customers anyway. All of them rake you over the coals . Every since they drove the little guntrader and gunsmith out years ago. I just got a gift card to Gamalies which I have never bought anything their but have been there with others. I'm just trying to figure out how the best way to retrieve the cash. Just the thought of using the card their turns me off but I guess I'll have to end up pissing it away their. Bill

    I don't understand exactly what happened with "not honoring prior sales."
    Did you order a gun and pay for it, and they didn't have the gun and wouldn't refund your money? I can't believe they would do that.


    Dick's has supplied shotgun shells for a good price for a long time. They have specials on shells nearly every week. Gun Clubs, Super Targets, Top Gun - all in
    the $5 to $5.50 range. They make it easy to get shells when you need them because their stores are everywhere.

    I believe that's pronounced "Cheesedicks".

    Posted a note on our gun club bulletin board that NOT ONE member should buy anything at Dicks due to their recent kneejerk reaction to the CT shootings.

    The name fits. I would rather spend a little more and buy my items from a dealer who supports shooting and the shooting sports.It may cost a little more but its worth it.
