    FYI - There is a new "Dick's" that did the grand opening thing in Clearwater tonight (and tomorrow). In the mail I got a couple coupons - one for $10 off if I spent $25. That was easy. I got an PVC ammo can with a tray, some solvent and oil for about $35.

    I'm happy about the ammo can because people were looking at me funny walking in to the range with 400 rounds in a walmart bag. Between this and a nice sig sauer range bag my wife got me and the ammo can, I won't look like such a dork. :)

    They just had a grand opening of a Dick's in Manhattan, KS. There were some good sales and coupons and we needed football cleats and stuff for my son, so we went. I was really dissapointed. They didn't have any of his first three choices of shoes in his size and couldn't guarantee that they would be able to order them in. There was a buy on get one half off on .45acp and they didn't have any of that either. I don't know if business was so good that they ran out of everything we wanted, or if they just didn't stock much of what they were advertising. I'm going to stay away.

    My daughter and I have thought about swinging through the new Dick's in clw. I have never shopped at a Dick's but hear they are a nice shop.

    Dick's is pretty good but firearms tend to be pricey at least in the stores near me. They're on par with Gander Mountain. I wouldn't say either is up to Cabella's standards.

    There's a Bass Pro Shop maybe 1+ hours out from me...is it worth exploring? I like fishing but not so much I'm willing to browse reels, rods and lures for more than a few minutes.

    There is a Dick's in Wesley Chapel, FL (N or Tampa) near where my daughter daughter lives. I find them expensive for ammo, and generally poorly stocked. I have tried on several occasions to get my daughter some self defense 9 mm rounds, and they never have it. I wind up getting it at a range. The range is sometimes cheaper, which is really strange.

    Dicks by us has absolutely no hunting or fishing equipment. It's all clothing, shoes, and extremely overpriced snowsports in the winter. I'll stick with Big 5 down the street or make the 1.5 hour drive to Bass Pro.

    Bass Pro Shop has been a major sponsor of this season of Top Shot. I'm assuming from that fact that they are pretty solid in the firearms department, or at least are pushing in that direction. I would go to a Bass Pro Shop in a second. I've never been to one, nor to a Cabela's.

    Hoping...

    BPS is a full line outdoor store, lots of supplies for the shooting sports.

    The nearest bass pro to me is in illinoise just across the border but its super expensive. Prolly due to the higher taxes there. There is a dicks in racine wis. bout 20 miles away but its pricey and not much stock on anything useful. Mainly very simple cleaning kits over priced shotguns and over priced shotgun ammo.
