I don't buy anything from dick's because their prices are rediculous. Even when it's "on sale" I can find it cheaper somewhere else.

I don't buy any firearms there but I do shop for other stuff.

Our has a crappy gun selection if it is between $300 and $1k they don't have it. They had some AR's they had my AR-10 in 260 by remmy but the price was $300 MORE than Gander Mnt. WOW just WOW..... I think they had it priced at $1998 "ON SALE" Regular price was $2199.

Hey, it is DICK's.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

The last gun I bought was at a small private shop,the owner gave his employee the papers and he whipped out a cellphone and called in and about 3 minutes later said,ok,it's a goahead.You pay a little more like 20 bucks at a shop like that but it's worth it.I think Dick's should stick to football and soccer and whatnot.

Sucks to hear about your trouble. I was in Dick's last night buying some walkie talkies. Always had good luck there. I also was invited to Friends and Family night. You get the employee discount and an extra 10% off.

I am going to buy another tree stand.

As a part-time gun dealer I can tell you that many of the delayed forms Never get a call back, sometimes I get a call 4-8 weeks later & the form expires after 30 days! Obviously Dick's has sold out to the Devil (our Gov't)and are now more concerned with making up their own new rules than they are with simply following the ATF's rules...

I always buy from my local shop. It might be a few extra bucks firearms or ammo or supplies, but you create friendships and lasting knowledge. You cant get that from a garbage big chain store. They usually have no idea what's going on, and the service is generally sub par.

Buy a gun from Dick's, Wal-Mart, Dunham's, Gander Mountain, Cabela's or any major retailer, and you get walked to the front door with an "associate" carrying it out for you. I have never had them carry it to the vehicle, just outside the closest door.

Keep in mind that they have to adhere to "Corporate Policies" that are dictated by lawers for the insurance companies. No biggie.

Should anyone press a real manager (not a Department Mgr level person) about the 3 day fed thingy, you will get the firearm. Stupid state laws notwithstanding.

To the OP, I am sure Dick's will survive without your business.
