    Does dicks still carry decent rifles and shotguns?

    my family and my wifes family were asking what they can get me for xmas. I was trying to figure out what sporting goods store with guns has gift certificates and that are also located close to both families. ( both out of state )

    They have a decent selection but unless something is on sale the prices generally suck.

    If you hae an Academy in your area check them out. Their prices beat the shit outta most others. Hate to admit it but I bought my hunting rifle at Wal Mart. No one could beat their price.

    they have a good selection, but the prices suck ass. When I went to buy my benelli nova tactical, they wanted 399 for it.

    Went to my usual dealer, who is 45 minutes away, and it was 290 instead. Good to look at, but you're usually better off going someplace else, unless you absolutely have to have it right away.

    I buy my 9mm from walmart (WWB).. but everything else, i get on www.ammunitionstore.com

    except for .270 WIN, I only shoot about 60 rounds a year of that, so I buy it at Gander mountain.

    Use to buy most of my ammo at a local shop that had mailorder type prices till the ATF fucked them and shut them down, now I do the ammunitionstore sometimes, cheaper than dirt, centerfire, who ever has the best prices going at the time I'm ordering. Unfortunently I'm stuck behind enemy lines in this liberal hellhole area and walmart does not sell ammo or guns.

    Odd...the one around me has pistol ammo. Not a huge selection, but they do carry it.

    I go some Remington High Velocity Trap/Small Game shells from Dicks for $1.98a box a few months ago during a sale. That's an amazing price, but other than that you're correct, their ammo prices kinda suck.

    Out of my mind, brb never.
    The only gun I ever got from Dicks was my Ruger 10/22. Price wasnt bad. I wouldnt get much else there because like others said, they charge too much.
