if your dick's is like the one here it is not worth your time going in,, no matter what time of year. not much in the way of guns/ammo/hunting stuff. just a boat load of t-shirts and paints, etc...

Dick's is still showing 12 different AR style guns on their website. Ranging from Mossberg .22 for $299 to a Remington .308 for $1399. I don't know about in the stores though. I haven't been in Dick's in at least 2 years.
Sports Authority did the same with handguns back in the 90's.

Sad. I was in the LGS today and they were jacking up the price on all of the rifles. The place was PACKED w/ panic buyers.

It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!
AR's still up at Walmart and local sporting shops today when I was driving around looking for 223 ammo.

Well, if true...
What a bunch of 'Dicks'! (oh, I'm going to Heck with the Mods on that one!)
I went by two LGS today and all their ar and ak style rifles and mags are gone. I bought the only 6 high cap glock mags they had left that fit my pistol. The owners stated most were getting ammo and reloading supplies, bullets, powder, primers. Lots of pistols available though such as Glocks, Sig Arms, XD, etc.
If you were not planning ahead over the last 4 - 5 years................. well..............
However with how the economy has blown so much during the same time, I can see where we all need to economize and grab what we can afford. Word!
There's a possibility that you could have some managers at (you name the retailer) who see an opportunity to increase their profit margins. The AR's that they have on hand are already bought. They pull them off the shelves and wait for the current panic to drive prices up. Then when all the local competitors are out of guns, they put their "new shipment" (got it right out of the stockroom) on sale at a higher price.

Yesterday I was looking at ARs on their website shopping for an AR. Today the link under rifles/modern sporting takes you to a blank page. If they are going to play that game, I'll take my business elsewhere.
