Academy is still my "go to" store here in Huntsville. Never been to Dick's and Cabela's two or three times a year.

Somebody say Gibson's? Loved that store. I bought my very first new gun from them in about '83. I was 16 and can't remember the details. I was too busy drueling on the gun counter. I think I gave Dad the hay hauling money I had and he bought it and out the front door we went. Colt Python, blued, 6" BBL. Helluva' first new gun! Still have it, as well as Dad's older one that I inherited much later. Looking back, I think he kept the change, but I guess we're even.

Not to hijack a thread, but there is still a Gibson's shocked ?

I have not seen a Gibson since my childhood in the Mississippi Delta.

Dick's didn't have anything but [censored] in their fishing department anyway. They should just concentrate on tennis shoes and women's exercise clothing. That's all that's important these days, isn't it? If I had a dollar for every pair of women's black spandex tights on the streets, I'd be a rich, rich man.

I guess in that open area where the hunting equipment was at in there stores they can sell mirrors. This way some of those folks can see what those spandex tights actually look like before they get out on the streets with them on.

Isn't there a Gibson's in Weatherford TX? Thought I saw one on Main St. the other day when I was there. Wish I had stopped and gone in. It's about time for another pair of Tough Skin Jeans. LOL

PS.. Also not a fan of dicks.

I don't think you're wrong at all. Such behavior happens in California (not quite as extreme as your hypothetical, but still harassment). Several states have laws against harassing anglers and hunters for this very reason.

Zeek don't quote me but I think about half of the syates have laws against harassment. I have taught hunter ed for years & instructors always cover that topic. It is illegal in TX. and have witnessed it first hand. VERY SAD

Guess we'll just have to go to one of their competitors to spend our hard earned cash. Hope no one gets killed by someone swinging one of their golf clubs.

I stopped shopping at Dick's many moons ago. I wish them well with their tennis shoe and tank top sales. Cabelas and BPS only when I actually want to look at a product, and 99% online where there are no rude sales people, no wanna be experts, often free shipping and in some cases, no sales tax. What's not to like about shopping online?

Everyone has a right to their opinions... that is what USA is all about. Freedom to have an opinion. Many have fought and died to give unappreciative others the right to say stupid things, wear stupid clothes and support stupid ideas.

My opinion is that I will support those that I feel are right. Those that support what my family enjoys. I have not been in a Dicks in over two years, never plan to go again. Over the years I had bought several guns and a lot of hunting clothes there, along with fishing gear, etc. because they had a store close by, and at that time I did not have Academy's close or Bass Pro or Cabela's. Dicks CEO made it very clear that she is anti-gun, put a lot of money into the anti-gun groups... goggle it if you want to. If you spend money at a Dicks, you are supporting anti-gun groups end of day.

I am also having to rethink my Wal Mart relationship... they are sliding off the cliff. All handgun and "military" ammo is already gone, and word it they are taking guns out of the stores. Many stores have cut the hunting gear and clothes to a minimum, or none at all.

I agree with some of you that Bass Pro/Cabela's is over priced, but you can not argue that Johnny Morris supports the outdoors and our hunting and fishing life. Yes, he got rich from it, but he started with a little bit of nothing, and supported us for years to get to where he is at. I don't spend a ton of money there, because I feel they are overpriced unless you catch a sale on what you want. But, they are still the biggest game in the states overall. I will still support them, and appreciate that they support our way of life.

I spend more money at Academy now, than anywhere else. Good selections and best prices day to day. I thank them every time I get a chance, especially managers if I see one with a name tag on, for supporting the outdoors. While I have no idea what their personal feelings are, at least they heard from another paying customer that we want guns and hunting - fishing gear. They also continue to support gun sports and fishing sports, with sponsorship money for events and competitors.

God Bless America.
