What is it you want to see exactly? Bodies? Blood? Broken windows? Are you implying the whole thing was a conspiracy? That it didn’t happen? Whats your point?

Yep. Went to the gun show this weekend with my brother. We’ve been stocking up lately, mainly grabbed some ammo and extra mags this time (since I’m sure that’ll be one of the grabs). Stopped by Cabela’s on the way home and it was packed. We happened to be off the day after the election and it was busier than that day (which was busier than I’d ever seen it before). <Although I avoid the Black Friday nonsense).

The local Dicks had some Remington 700s and such. I never saw any black rifles there, but they stocked some interesting LE shotguns.

If I want anything I'll get it through my local FFL. I've had enough of dealing with the PC BS from craven chain stores. Bass Pro just recently expanded their selection of AR parts. How much do you want to bet that those go away now?

Also, go an take a look at what the price of a standard 30rnd PMag or a case of LC .223 is going for now on their website.

I understand the laws of supply and demand, but this borders on Capitalistic suicide...

5.56 ammo is rocking the crazy meter over there too. Latest quote for LC surplus was getting near to $2 a round. More expensive than .308!

I sent them a nice little email asking them to delete my (well used) account as I won't be shopping there anymore. It's time to put our money where our mouth is. To wit, my fourth quarter NRA contribution is also on hold until they stop acting like hurt puppies and come out swinging for AR owners.

Anybody have an email contact for Dick’s where we can tell them to stuff their ban in their ear? I am so tired of this BS. I’ve only been in one of their stores a few times, but I’ll never go back.

Tell these politically correct d-bags what you think of them. If they get more pressure from us than from the anti-gun people they will cave.

Cowards are like that!

Thanks! They won’t get any business from our family, and I’m going to let them know it.

The only way to influence them is to hurt them in their pocket books.

Check your local paper. A LOT of them are run by the Gannett Group - the same bunch that idiot editor up in New York for in the paper that printed the names and addresses of all gun owners.

If it is, drop your subscription. I dropped mine to a local Gannett paper years ago for its blatant liberal editorializing.
