Oh well, 5+ millon of how much they paid for them and then lost for revwnue for not selling.....fk them. Their decission has been showing in their profit margin and its detrimental. D!cks is a sinking ship and their "I feel good", " look at me ma, I got a sticker star on my refrigerator" move or in reality anti Constitutional agenda is showing this in their sales.
F d!cks, I nor my family will ever shop there due to their "feel good" / "heart warming" / anti Constitutional stance they took.

I refuse to buy anything at Dicks. I haven’t been there in over 3 years.
Drove by the Dick’s store in Sioux Falls the other day...pretty much an empty parking lot. They are going to “feel good” right out of business from the looks of it. Half mile away, Scheels is bustling with business.
Knowing when and how...
Who needs them.
As far as I'm concerned they can trash 10 mil in guns.
They already paid the gun makers for them, they will just make more.
Just love the PC business model.
I worked in publicly held companies for over 40 years mostly in senior executive positions.
Anybody that tossed out $5 million of stock, when you could have returned it to the manufacturer, would be instantly fired.

Someone in Dick's upper mgmt must have something to gain from a decline in their business.

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.-Thomas Jefferson
I do not go to Dicks....for years. I do have a hard time believing they have destroyed 5 mil in product. I would belief they salvaged the guns but to totally destroy and loose allot of revenue? No way!
Any one taking wages on how long more will Dick's will be in business?
There is one about 5 miles from home, it is located in a major very busy shopping center, parking is quite difficult, the advantage of having this Dick's in the shopping center is that you always can find a parking space in from of the store. I wonder why.
