Yeah, i avoid dicks almost as much as i avoid Gander mountain. Your right it IS a scam. Its just a way to get your personal information so they can sell it.

They had a great deal on gun safes Thanksgiving 2011. I pick one up on Black Friday and about a month later I received a $40 dollar coupon in the mail. I had a half off coupon from the back of a ticket from a high school basketball game. I was able to purchase $80.00 worth of ammo for my $40.00 coupon.

I try not to buy anything from them, normally overpriced. I did have the best service experience at the gun counter a few weeks back. All the lgs I've been too this guy was the nicest.

I agree, normally overpriced, though I did buy a rifle on sale once.

Don't have them in this area, but I've heard pros & cons about them. I prefer doing business with my LGS, even though they are a little higher on ammo & accessories & about middle of the road on gun pricing, compared to other gun stores in my area. But they give bang-up good service after the sale. Don't seem to get that 'personal touch' from the big box stores.

we have one here and I was looking for a 30-06 tika t3 stainless steel. and there price was cheaper than the local gun shops about 150 dollars less.

When my brother was in collage there was one on the route to his apartment us to stop in there and see what they had, I find there prices are more then most of the stores around my area. Ya they have a lot of stuff in the store but the gun guy up in lousiville last time I was there really didn't know his ******* from his elbow, and they're gun selection sucked.

I have not had many good experiences with the one in my town. Poor customer service, products always out of stock, and some over priced stuff as well. I'm not gonna step foot in another Dicks Sporting Goods store again. Better off sticking to Bass Pro or the internet
