    being that DICKS has not sold any AR-15’s since 2012, after Sandy Hook .. and only has a hand full of field and stream stores.. the numbers could have been low ?

    When Dick’s Sporting Goods said it would no longer sell modern sporting rifles at its Field & Stream stores following the Valentine’s Day shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school, one question was what would happen to the unsold firearms in its inventory.
    Typically a retailer may return unsold merchandise to the manufacturer. But in this case, Dick’s Sporting Goods has decided to destroy them.
    “We are in the process of destroying all firearms and accessories that are no longer for sale as a result of our February 28th policy change,” a spokeswoman told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “We are destroying the firearms in accordance with federal guidelines and regulations.”
    The so-called assault-style rifles will be destroyed at the company’s distribution centers and the parts sent to a salvage company to be recycled, the Findlay-based retailer added. The company did not say how much merchandise would be included.
    In addition to the decision on pulling assault-style rifles from its 35 specialty Field & Stream locations, the sporting goods chain said in February that it also would no longer sell high capacity magazines or sell firearms to anyone under 21 years old following the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
    Dick’s is facing two lawsuits over the new age limit on firearm purchases.
    This is not the first time that the sporting goods retailer has changed its gun sale policies.
    Following the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., the retailer had pulled modern sporting rifles from its namesake stores nationwide. When it later opened its specialty Field & Stream stores, it introduced the modern sporting rifles to its product line there.
    The company did not comment on what it did with the firearms it pulled from its Dick’s stores in 2012.

    Now that pistols that accept a detachable magazine are considered Assault Weapons, Dicks is destroying two Hi Points, and a Lorcin. Management had a meeting afterwards to give out participation trophies to all gun destroyers.

    While we ridicule, there are just as many, if not more, very happy with dickwad's decision.

    I'm on a phone, maybe someone else could please cut & paste from the article?
    it's simple. this time they have people calling them on their actions from last time. "so ya just gonna resell them when the value goes up again?"
    and they don't see a sellers market any time soon. last time the prices skyrocketed pretty quickly. if anything we're going to see them get a little cheaper then climb with inflation or more "value adding" packages Vs rock bottom naked ar's

    No comment, huh?

    I wonder why...

    For those who don't know, they canceled orders and refused to deliver rifles to customers who had paid for them. Then they gave those customers something like a $100 "we're sorry" gift card and put all the evil rifles in storage until their new store (Field and Stream) opened, and took those very same rifles that they fucked people out of buying and offered them up for sale in the new store.
    At the time, those rifles were somewhere around $450 - the ones they refused to deliver. Also, due to panic buying, those people who had PAID FOR a $450 rifle and were denied ownership, were now faced with paying $2,000+ for an AR15 elsewhere because the prices had skyrocketed.

    There's a special place in hell for those bastards.

    willing to bet those are the first ones they started selling when they got F&S locations since dicks officially never restocked ar's in their exercise stores. right?
