Rep told me the same. I'm not looking forward to their prices though. Dicks is a huge rip off.

I've never seen handguns in any Dick's stores.

The Modesto Dick's doesn't carry "black rifles" either. I would not support them. Support a LGS instead. I suspect places that did a ton of SSE that last year will have a dry spell in the next quarter. I am sure they are used to this, but my point is we should stick with LGS purchases and skip the chains. I especially hate Bass Pro who make you buy a lock when you buy a long gun and have a safe (and the long gun came with the same exact lock in the box). Shoot, I will buy at Big 5 over Dick's or Bass Pro for gun-related items any time I can, just because they are smallish and have local friendly staff.

If you want to support a business that acts like owning a gun is the same as murdering children then shop at Dick's. Don't forget to contribute to Diane Feinstein and Kevin Deleon while you're at it.

If you're anywhere near Turlock and are buying a gun (long gun or hand gun), then go to Alquist Arms. They have two stores in Turlock and are a locally owned, family run, pro gun gun store. On top of that they have the best prices I have seen. They have a great selection between the two stores and can get just about anything you want if they don't already have it in stock.

If for any reason you are not a fan of Alquist, there are a couple of other LGS's in town. Please give them your business instead of giving it to a bunch of Dick's.

I avoid Dick's Sporting Goods like the plague. They will never get another dime of my business.

I also share the feelings that when dicks pulled all the evil black guns off because of a school shooting they lost my respect it's not the guns guns don't kill people people kill people get that through your head.

I have a self boycott on dicks my opinion my feelings. My two cents

I shop at Dicks, but wouldn't buy anything from there.

Recently I was at Bass Pro (Manteca) and wanted to shoot a bow. They must not like Asians (or any customers, for that matter). They said they don't do demo's on weekends. So I came to Stockton (yes, of all places) for lunch and low and behold, saw a Dick's at the mall. They were nice enough to let me shoot the bow that I wanted to try. Nice bow, but I wouldn't buy it there.

I can confirm that as of Oct 2016, Dick's in Turlock does not sell handguns.
