I will no longer buy ammo from Dicks Sporting Goods

On my way home today I stopped by Dicks Sporting goods to pick up a box of 9mm for my Kel-tec Carbine. As I go in I see a sign that says "No one under 21 can purchase handgun calibers". I said, Ok , thats probably store policy or whatever.

I ask for a box of Remington 9mm and the clerk asks for my ID, I thought sure, hes just checking my age. The clerk then proceeds to pull out a huge 3 ring binder. I see him start to write down my name, and I ask "whats all this?" He goes on to tell me that everyone who buys handgun ammunition is registered and documented!!! Names and I think addresses. I said "screw that, NJ is a hell-hole, Ill take my business to the gun store" and left Dicks.

Now I left not because of paranoia or some reason along those lines. I dont feel that the Feds are going to kick down my door tomorrow if I put my name on a list. I just dont want to feed that whole "registration = less crime" crap. I am not about to put my name and address in some giant book and be listed as a possible "handgun owner." Otherwise known as Satan in NJ. I am not about to fuel the fire and participate in registration for a completly unknown and unneccesary reason.

Now I know I will probably get replies in the form of "move", or as Standing Wolf likes to do, post www.Uhaul.com. :neener: I am well aware of the fact that NJ is awful and I will be moving after college. I am also well aware that I am a registered gun owner since I have a NJ FID and all that nonsense. Registration of gun owners bothers me too, but I can do very little about that. Registration of owners of a gun that shoots handgun calibers is completly insane.

My two cents. I just thought Id share.

Out here in CA, I have to sign a book for every pound of propellant I buy. Name, address, and use of the powder. Every time I fill it out, I want to put "creating explosives" as the use.

I've asked before why it's necessary only at the one store and supposedly it's the sheriffs policy.

Unfortunately for them, they let me fill out the information and whether or not I put the correct information is a different story. :neener:

However, the ones here in MD are also weird to deal with and I try to avoid them. I think that's a good policy in most cases. I'm not trying to support the local real gun dealers as much as I can afford to:evil:

I bought ammo from Dick's a week ago. some .45 federal hydroshocks. the guy just looked at my permit and gave me the ammo. i live here in NY state,,,just above you,,,. i dont like all the paperwork either, but i believe in the concealed carry permit, as much as everyone may hate it, it sure keeps the riff raff out. imagine if anyone , reguardless of criminal background, could buy a handgun and carry a handgun. you would have every criminal in the world packing a gun. not that it stops them if they really want one, but it makes it a little harder and if caught they go to jail. we do need a checks and balance system. dont get me wrong, i am a law abiding citizen, and if my government said i couldnt have a handgun, i would be seriously , well i couldnt even describe it. it is part of our constitution to own guns, but for people with certain felonies, or crimes, i believe that it is good that the government has laws which provide for "no gun privlages". there is a fine line between the "left" and the "right" which i believe we need to follow, not only to guarantee our rights, but also guarantee the safety of the public. crucify me if you wish, and i know there are alot of anti gun people who would like to take our rights away,,,,i am not one of them, but i believe in level headed balance.

just my thoughts and opinion though,
THANK GOD FOR THE NRA!!!!!!!!!

Move to a free state! Do business with free people!

I limit my travel to the "Blue"states. Only for business that benefits me and if I can't help it.

I don't buy from companies in the "Blue" states.

It is interesting that the leftists in media labeled the states Blue and Red. The Blue color means "friendly" in the military and Red means "Enemy".

Since this is the left wing "up is down and left is right" philosophy it is no surprise that Socialism is right "Blue" and FREEDOM is evil "Red".

I think that any business I do with prisoners of "Blue" states empowers Socialist governments due to the taxes they extract. This harms me since it helps expand the power of socialists.

When Dicks moved in, they immediately discontinued handgun sales "as a matter of store policy". Then the handgun ammo decreased in size, then the accessories (holsters, cleaning kits, etc) disappeared.

It doesn't matter which state you're in. Buying from Dicks Sporting Goods
is the same here in Colorado. I just went to the other side of the highway
to the Sportsmans Warehouse where you can buy as much ammo as you want without store policy imposing limits or writing your info in their own little binder! They don't need my business.

I wonder what the crime rate espically murder with a firearm was before lets say 1968 in this great country of ours. Was it less than now. If so (and I believe it was) espically if you look at the 1950's what in the heck has any of the gun control laws done to decrease that crime? Sorry I do not think any gun control laws do anything to reduce crme. And there is no credible evidence that it does. Why do I say this. Well I happend to buy "Firearms and Violence" a very boring scientific review done on the behest of Clinton by the National Research Council printed in 2005. Now this study had all anti's except one. But they apparently had scientific integreity and they could not site one gun control law that definately decreased crime. Sure they said they did not necessarity have enough scientific studies but nothing to this date can scientifically be shown to decrease crime. NOTHING. Including barring felons, background checks. NOTHING. Except maybe gun court for minors kinda like drug court for that age group. So see I don't buy into any of it. The book is available costs 40.00 or so dollars and is boring. You can order it from the National Research Council of the National Academies. The study did not show what Clinton thought it would if read objectively.:eek:

Then, because I think the Catholics were right, (There Is A Purgatory!. Why? Because, why else would I be writing this crap on a keyboard that dispenses tumors on my tendons, I have to be in Purgatory). I discover what's worse, is the Catholics were right. Oy!

gee and go figure this there is no way to email the store to complain from thier website. translation to me is they know there wrong and dont want to hear about it. they think if they ignore there customers problems the customer will put up with it and keep buying there. well guess gun owners need to stop shopping there i know i will from now on.
as for wal-mart here where i live they have a nice supply of ammo and a decent sporting good selection not as nice as most gun stors but decent and they are now ccw friendly. but then again here on the oh wv border guns for hunting and other outdoor recreation is almost a way of life.

You are buying in to the whole "common sense gun legislation" brainwashing campaign spread around by nearly every media outlet and politician.

Thanks, both, for taking the high road. Your example saved me a stern rebuke from the mods.

paleridr1

Maybe the felon with a drug problem shouldn't be roaming society freely. That seems like a much better solution than recording the ammo purchases of the other 99% of people who aren't doing anything problematic and have a certain expectation of privacy.

Having said that, if you aren't using cash then about a dozen different marketing intel groups have your ammo purchases documented pretty well, no matter where you buy it.

I've gone three times to purchase .45ACP whitebox ammo at the Salem New Hampshire Wallyworld in the last six months, and got three different routines: the first time, they asked to see my ID, and explained that it was because they need to verify that I'm not a Massachusetts resident. The second time, they didn't ask to see my ID and weren't aware of any store or state policy requiring it. The third time they asked to see my ID, and explained that it was to verify my age.

I'm wondering what's going to happen next time, but if they try to write anything down or make a copy of my ID, they're never seeing any business from me ever again.

1- Stop shopping for ammo at Dick's. Their prices aren't that great and the only thing they carry that Wal-Mart doesn't is 10mm....at least in my area.

2- About the "criminals shouldn't have guns, so a background check isn't that big of a deal" attitude. You can buy an SKS and swap out the stock for one that's more comfortable and you're a felon. You can have too many pounds of powder in your reloading room in some jurisdictions and become a felon. You can forget to take your pocket gun out of your pocket when you go into the post office and become a felon. Can you honestly say that you have never done something that some jurisdiction somewhere hasn't made a felony? It really is that easy to have that tag put on you if you live in a restrictive jurisdiction with an aggressive prosecutor.

Seriously... this is becoming more common and I guess you are right to pack up and leave...

I ran into something similar a while back early in the fall... not sure what store I was in... I purchased some shotgun ammunition and clerk made me fill out a notebook with my name and address...since I was obviously old enough clerk did not ask me for ID but he did ask me to fill out notebook with my name and address, which I promptly did... he didn't even check it either, as I doubt whether Mr. Elmer Fudd would have been accepted!

PALERIDER1

Ya wanna think that one over for a minute. Since you seem to realize that criminals don't obey laws and get guns whenever they want from illegal sources you're only a breath away from the inevitable conclusion that the laws restricting firearms posession/carry only limit law abiding citizens. The laws are empty theatrics making law abiding citizens easier targets for criminals (whether the 'hoody' wearing type or the Armani wearing variety). Please look at the ABC News piece done by John Stossel. http://thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=173409&highlight=john+stossel and the CDC report concluding that gun contol laws have had no beneficial impact on reducing crime.

45Badger
January 5, 2006, 03:48 PM
I think Palerider's disconnect comes from living in NY state. NY residents must have a state issued permit to own or purchase a handgun. Some permits are "un-restricted" or "carry", some are "premises" or "home protection". ALL your handguns are supposed to be listed (or registered) on your permit.

So, in addition to the NICs check that satisfies the rest of the country that you (the prospective buyer/owner) are not a bad guy/felon/crazy man/prohibited from owning a firearm, NY state has same basic restrictions and adds some fingerprinting just for the "privilege" of handgun ownership. It is not a shall issue state, and local/county judges make up many of their own rules/policies about time of residence in a county, how long you've known your references, etc. before they will issue a permit.

To most normal/thinking folks, this is a highly subjective and not fairly or evenly applied policy.

Here in Pennsylvania (America starts here!), any law abiding (pass the NICs check) citizen over 21 can purchase a handgun. It's their's to do with as they please in any lawful activity.

If they want to use it as a concealed carry weapon, they apply for a permit and it is issued with a few weeks. PA is shall issue, so as long as you are not a felon, wife/child beater, drug addict, public drunkard/nuisance, or some other miscreant, you'll get a permit.

A year or so of living in a free state might help Palerider better understand what silly, and costly burdens NY state puts on handgun ownership without any real public safety benefit (compared to PA).

And Dick's stinks for anything gun-related. Don't waste time or money there.

Never had the Dicks here in Virginia request that - of course, I only purchased from them once right after the switch from Galyans.

My brother, for what its worth, lives in Jersey. He's indicated to me that he is required to register any time he purchases more than 1 box of ammo. Thought it was a state law or something.

Of course, he never buys any ammo in jersey . . . . .

countertop,
boo! Join my boycott of Dicks in Virginia :D

Actually, I've never had a problem with them, but the gun counter guys were really depressed when the switchover happened. But what Galyans had in stock went on firesale. A friend's uncle got a S&W 500 (or whatever caliber that behemoth revolver is) for $200 cheaper than we had seen it a gun show the last weekend. Plinkers, like the Buckmark were 50% off.

The real loss, though is the holsters and other handgun accessories. Galyans could always be counted on to have something when you needed it. Dicks needed that space for more archery or yuppy-camping eqiupment.

Anyway, I just don't like buying from stores that willfully don't sell handguns for ideological or political reasons (which is how the "retiring" Galyans gun clerks explained it to me). it just doesn't seem right.

Oh and ammoman.com is great. I get it shipped here all the time. Never a problem -- if he has your caliber.

I went to the local Gander Mountain in Rochester NY to buy some 9mm that was on sale. After asking the pimple-faced clerk for four boxes of 9mm that were on sale, I was asked for my NY State Pistol Permit. I told him that I didn't have one (even though I did) and that the ammo was for a Marlin Camp Carbine.

I could see the smoke coming out of his ears in complete confusion. He looked at a co-worker for support. The older co-worker shrugged his shoulders apparently realizing that I didn't look like a gang-banger fresh out of ammo and told him to sell it to me. Good choice.

So much for corporate responsibility...what a joke.

When Dick's bought out Galyan's here in Indy, they really went downhill fast. Customer service and product selection are not nearly as good, and the local stores treat guns as something icky that they're carrying just because us Hoosiers are such neanderthals.

These days, I go to Gander Mountain instead, if I want to go to a big sporting-goods store. In addition to a very wide selection of guns, ammo and accessories, they have an excellent selection of [girly stuff warning!] nice clothing, too.

Even without the attitude, the local Dick's stores just don't offer a wide or unique enough selection of products to make them worth my while.

Reference to an old scifi movie where people start acting outside of character after being replaced by pod clones. I just heard a person make an anti-gun statement on a pro-gun board. I figured they are a podperson.

Even without the notebook hassle, Dicks out here in PA just stinks. Their prices seem to almost be above MSRP and their customer service doesnt exist. The employees just stand around chatting while you wait for service. They really are a joke. Coming from Texas where I shopped at Academy, it is a real let down.
