Just got off the phone with my local Dick’s Sporting Goods store. When I asked about some Remington shotgun shells he told me that they don’t have any and they are not going to get anymore ammo or guns in to the store. I guess I will have to break out my MEC 9000 and get reloading again.

Their loss, not mine. Haven't darkened that doorstep in at least a decade, haven't missed their doorstep either.

They announced several months ago they were going to stop selling guns or ammo at 125 stores due to weak profits on sales of guns and ammo.

Unfortunately the nearest Gander Outdoors is 40 miles away from me. And they cannot ship directly to me because I am in NY. But thanks for the tip.

So Dick's is now essentially just a Nike and Under Armour outlet in one place.

I look forward to their demise.

Glad to see dicks at least going full in on their political stance.

Empathy to you folks in NY, CA and several other states. It sounds like the dems there are getting the desired result. ☹️

That`s Gander`s REGULR price for Gun Clubs. That`s where I buy my shells now. Well, except for turkey.

Thanks to Tidefanatic's tip on Gander's price on Remington GCs, I just received my yearly amount. I would caution prospective buyers that the $4.99/bx price is their sale price, but they don't have it available at all times, nor on all loads. I waited about 3 months before Gander stocked them again. Good luck!

I hope Dicks continues to sell shotgun ammo. There is one near my gun club with the added bonus of being in a no sales tax state. That alone saves me $3 a flat.

Remember dick's pulled all their AR's off the shelk and destroyed them in a big hoopla about gun control. I hope they choke. I wouldn't shells there if they were $1.00 a box.

I can't imagine anyone involved in shooting sports or who cares about their 2A rights spending a penny at Dick's. Their owner is a vocal gun control advocate and has gone so far as to hire gun control lobbyists to work on his behalf. I just shake my head when someone tells me about the few bucks they saved on Gun Clubs using their Dick's club card.

One of the local gunshots uses a radio ad proclaiming, "We're not Dick's." :)

When anyone mentions Dick's, I always make it a point to interject, "eff Dick's." They won't see a penny of my money.

Gave up on Dicks long ago. I would have to read about it to find out they no longer. Sold guns or ammo.

In the past couple of years I have only purchased shotgun ammo at Dicks and then only when it was on sale and or I had a discount coupon. They regularly had Remington Gun Clubs on sale. And when they didn’t sometimes Gander Outdoors would have them on sale. Both Dicks and Gander would do price matching so I could get the shells discounted at either store. I like to shoot 1oz #8 for both Skeet and Trap and usually only Dicks had them. Gander usually only had 1 1/8 oz shot loads. Since Gander moved there store 40 miles away I have only been able to get discounted shotgun shells at Dicks. I don’t like Dicks stand on 2A but I figured that the discounts were a loss leader just to get you into the store so they really didn’t make any money on my purchases of ammo.
