    Dick's Sporting Goods to stop selling hunting rifles in 125 stores

    Dick's Sporting Goods said Tuesday that it will stop selling hunting products, including rifles and ammunition, at 125 stores where the category has underperformed.


    The sporting goods retailer said it will replace the category with in-demand merchandise. The company has already removed the category in 10 stores.

    Good! Looks like boycotting them hurt their bottom line in that category. Just because they were DICKS. Screw them, I hope they go bankrupt.

    Talked with my local Dick's in Norwalk and apparently they're not on the chopping block (surprisingly). They've had a total fire sale on turkey calls and equipment right before the season so I'm surprised they're keeping guns around.

    It makes sense to focus on high margin products, though I would suspect firearms bring in a group of people that engage in all kinds of activities. Most people who hunt also fish, and most people who fish also hike or go outside, and most people go who hike and go outside also participate in some kind of other sport. It's not the other way around where someone who bike's just happens to hunt.
