It’s Right There in the Name

I don’t shop there much, but in the future I will NOT be shopping for any sporting goods needs at Dick’s Sporting Goods.

Not content with treating their customers with contempt, Dick’s then treated their business partners the same way.

Troy Defense (Troy), a division a Troy Industries, Inc., was deeply dismayed and shocked to hear through national media outlets that Dick’s Sporting Goods (DSG) made the decision to stop selling the Troy Carbine along with other modern sporting rifles. DSG did not contact or inform Troy of this decision prior to notifying the public. Nor was Troy informed by DSG that cancellation letters were being sent to customers, set to arrive on Christmas Eve (a day Troy was closed).

Troy has invested millions of dollars in its facility and operations to bring its first ever modern sporting rifle to the market under an exclusive contract with DSG. In selecting DSG as the sole distributor of the Troy Carbine, Troy relied on DSG’s high sales forecasts and sales potential prior to undertaking the significant financial and corporate commitment necessary to design, develop, manufacture and bring a new modern sporting rifle to the marketplace. Based on DSG’s press release, DSG’s anti-gun stance is clear – DSG will not continue modern sporting rifle sales and Troy will sadly not see its Carbine readily available — despite the outlay of millions of dollars by Troy and its commitment to support DSG in its distribution efforts.

Gun lunacy rears its ugly head and hopefully Dick’s will close business beneath under the same cloud of contempt it has treated its customers. Go read the whole thing about DSG’s decision to discontinue selling rifles.

    Eejits! It’s already been written all over the place: the name says it all.

    I hope Troy has a steel contract and better lawyers. The market for Troy’s products will trump any customer loyalty to the dick.

    And what beautiful firearms, despite what Ole Lady Feinstein sez.

    The tiny dick’s isn’t in my neighborhood, but I wouldn’t buy a pair of shoe laces from ‘em.

      Oh. Your post title just sunk into my brain, Floyd. So, I repeat myself and everyone else. Hope your toes heal soon. Sorry. :(

      That’s a beautiful deer & Target rifle! Too bad all the DSG’s(Heavy on the “D” and not the S or G) in the world are speaking out their arses again! The left is like a case of hemorrhoids. They always get in your business and rarely if ever go away completely!

  • Pretty sure the closest DSG’s in Woodland Hills, but haven’t shopped there in years. Do believe I’ll be paying them a visit this weekend, though. Load up the cart with a whole bunch of expensive goodies before leaving it at the register with a less than kind word for the management.

    Never been to one … never will. I can see deciding not to sell guns anymore, which is within their rights, but to be total “Richards” and cause this company the loss it has is criminal. I’m sure a lawsuit will be filed so they get their money back, and I hope they do.

    Bass Pro Shops are big in this area of the country. They shall continue to get my business!
