As Forrest Gump said "Stupid is as stupid does." May Dick's, Field and Stream, and Yeti dry up and blow away. I feel sorry for the people that work there but have no sympathy for the idiots making these decisions. These new ideas are likely coming from the new generation of college grads being hired by the companies, as they were taught in the liberal schools to hate America. They think for the moment and their movement, not for the future. I hope they enjoy cutting their own throats.

Weatherby needs to join Mossberg and cut that smelly cord permanently - stop all shipments to that bunch of dicks. They really have an appropriate company name. Dicks is now lobbying in Washington for tougher gun laws too. I hope they fall, and fall hard - burn, baby burn. The NRA website has info on all this BS Dicks is up to.

EVERY gun company and ammunition company needs to join Mossberg.

 A certainly less offensive 4 letter word got me censored without a mother f-----g clue why! I tripped on the association of the dick and  Weatherby while looking for sources of the  "first light" vanguard.  Let the censor factor go? Maybe in 3 or 4 decades!  ;D

Maybe I missed something but I don't see any Weatherby rifles or shotguns on Dicks website ?

I just checked too and couldn't find a Weatherby on their website either. Looks like Weatherby had the good intuition beforehand not to do do business with them already LOL! Dick's gun prices were always el sucko anyway.

I used the weatherby.com " Find a dealer near you" feature and it led me to Dick's and it still does.   ;D

 Dicks never had a good selection of product. I don't think they sold much in the way of guns or ammo, my opinion was they sucked. Never bought anything there but hunters orange coat and bibs on sale at end of season.
 For me a new Cabelas opened up 3miles from the house. Now it is free shipping for me if they don't have what i want.

I have never been in any Dick's store. The one that came up on the search is 14 miles away. I drive past it on my way to the gun show at the South Florida Fairgrounds.  :)

Bad, there are three Dicks stores listed by the Dealer Locator in my area, but none of the stores carry Weatherby's.

Maybe Weatherby should break the link to Dick's?   :)

Kevin, change that maybe to definitely! LOL. Dick's opened a store near me a year or two ago in Sugar Land, TX and I've been in it twice but never bought anything, as their gun and ammo prices/selection sucked. If I ever walk in there again, it will only be to tell the manager what I think of them and probably get escorted out by the time I'm finished. To be fair, Bass Pro gun/ammo prices around here suck too, but at least those guys are not messing with our gun rights, as far as I know. I shop at Academy if it's going to be a big box store.

I would certainly see Wetherby breaking all ties with Dick's as a good publicty move and just a good idea. The only box store near me was Gander Mt.  I do have a small gun shop less than a mile away that I do business with.   :)

Kevin, are you 21 yet to buy those guns? LOL! I heard about that new Florida 21 law.
P.S. I was just in Palm Beach County this past weekend for my Mom's 90th birthday. She retired there 25 years ago.

So, was it you that brought all the rain?  Next time you're  down this way, give me a shout. I'm just a tad north of W Palm Beach.  We'll get a drink, assuming the bar doesn't card me for being under 21( like they did in the 1960's)   ;D
