    Being as I have one near me, I like the idea given the current panic. Focus on availability for the local community. I don't see other chain stores like Bass Pro, Cabela's, etc. following suit though, online sales are probably too lucrative. I personally can't order from many of the big box stores being in IL because of our whole FOID card thing, and if I can they make me do it by phone for some reason.

    Seriously, good on them, but I bet the shelves in all 119 stores are bare by week's end.

    One of my coworker's dad works there as a retirement gig (retired police officer). He said its relatively slim pickings, but they have some. Said he sold 100 guns in one day the first day the panic started.

    No online sales because they have little to sell anyway. I stop by my local RK every payday Saturday, but it's been about two months since they've had anything I usually buy. And what they did have on hand wasn't all that much.

    Hmm.. That's the exact opposite of what other stores are doing: closing physical stores but keeping online sales.

    Yeah, everyone health related is saying to avoid stores and other people as much as possible. Kind of goes against the grain at this point.

    Good for them. I just got back from a trip to the ranch supply store. The shelves were pretty bare.

    I went to Pennsylvania Guns and Ammo yesterday, they had only 2 boxes of 9mm defense ammo left in stock. I bought one box of armscore 124 gr jhp. It's crazy how the threat of virus is effecting people

    Sounds like some well-grounded priorities on their part.
