It’s not going to be too long before no one even notices rape claims anymore, and that will be a terrible thing for the real victims. It will be portrayed as misogynists and a war on women, but it will really be the fault of the leftie feminists. And the media that breathlessly parrots the lies.

  1. Dick’s gear is absurdly overpriced, anything from shoes to tshirts to figgin chemlights and carabiners.

    Dick’s exists to give me a place to feel the material or try on the item, then I go to a discount shop or Amazon to buy it.

    Since I spend most of my time in CT I havent done any gun/ammo business with them (I don’t have a permit in CT), but I definitely wouldn’t now anyway.

    The Future is ….. a Frigate
    I.e., what the rest of the world is doing, while we’re building overpowered Offshore Patrol Vessels at the cost of AEGIS Cruisers.

    Also, while we’re building OPVs that cost as much as Cruisers, Russia is building Frigates that are ARMED like Cruisers;

    What did they THINK would happen? Sporting goods stores are where a sizable chunk of US gun-buyers go to buy firearms, ammo, accessories, and gun maintenance equipment.

    Seriously, people — go to Bass Pro Shops or Big 5 for guns.
