MKS Maker of High-Point and Inland Firearms Ends Its Relationship With Dick’s Sporting Goods

Hi-Point Firearms LogoInland Firearms Logo

MKS is Ohio based and has announced that based on anti-gun rights actions taken by the US retailer Dick’s Sporting Goods aks Field and Stream, they will no longer sell to them.

Good for you MKS!

Dick’s reported, on May 30th, good financial results for the first quarter, but I believe it is too soon to see the results of their actions. It takes a bit of time for word to spread, they likely still have inventory to sell and it takes time for people to change shopping habits. Next quarter will likely show the impact.

I know that everyone I interact with has stopped shopping there. So keep sharing the stories of what Dick’s is up too!

Nobody wants a company to fail so hopefully they will change their silly policial course and realize that guns are not the issue.

Humans are the issue at hand and recently BULLYING of school children. Bullying that was so severe, that children killed other children. Did you read that correctly? Children killing children due to bullying! That’s a serious social issue that needs a solution ASAP!

Guns are just an inanimate object or a tool. No different than a knife or a fork or brick or a golf club or an automobile.

Vector Arms V94 MP5 H&K Clone 9MM and Fully Transferable Machine Gun On a Form 3 and Ready To Transfer

Vector V94 MGThis is a machine gun aka full-auto rifle and is ready to go.

The host is a Vector Arms V94 Pistol in 9mm and has a fully transferable S&H H&K sear in a 3-position trigger pack installed (SUO).

The pistol also has a rare H&K fixed stock installed and upgraded ventilated handguards. Nice!

The RCM sourced barrel has the usual 3-lug mount and is also threaded 1/2×28 to accept all types of non-3 Lug muzzle devices including silencers and includes a thread protector.

The Vector is still registered as a pistol. However, as long as the sear pack is installed it can stay in the SBR configuration. You can register it as an SBR.

The Vector V94 pistol is similar to the H&K MP5 and is factory fresh.

The sear pack is in immaculate condition. It appears unfired, but as we are not sure if it was ever fired we cannot guarantee that it is. Because of this, we have not test fired the weapon with the sear pack installed (other than dry-firing). Everything has been checked out by Vector and it should run perfectly.

Please be aware that some slight tuning might be required. The sear pack is compatible with other calibers. If you have more than one H&K host you can move it around (again some slight tuning might be required).

This is on consignment as part of an estate.

This is on a form 3 and is ready to transfer to your dealer or transfer locally on to a form 4.

Mossberg Firearms Ends Its Relationship With Dick’s Sporting Goods

On May 9th Mossberg made this press release:

NORTH HAVEN, CT – O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc., a leading American firearms manufacturer, announced today its decision to discontinue selling products to Dick’s Sporting Goods, and its subsidiary, Field & Stream, in response to their hiring of gun control lobbyists in April 2018.

Effective immediately, O.F. Mossberg & Sons will not accept any future orders from Dick’s Sporting Goods or Field & Stream, and is in the process of evaluating current contractual agreements.

“It has come to our attention that Dick’s Sporting Goods recently hired lobbyists on Capitol Hill to promote additional gun control.” said Iver Mossberg, Chief Executive Officer of O.F. Mossberg & Sons. “Make no mistake, Mossberg is a staunch supporter of the U.S. Constitution and our Second Amendment rights, and we fully disagree with Dick’s Sporting Goods’ recent anti-Second Amendment actions.”

Consumers are urged to visit one of the thousands of pro-Second Amendment firearm retailers to make their purchases of Mossberg and Maverick® firearms.

Way to go Mossberg!

I wonder will will cut ties next?

National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) Expels Dick’s Sporting Goods

nssf logo

Today the National Shooting Sports Foundation AKA the NSSF which is the trade association for the firearms, ammunition, hunting and shooting sports industries voted to expel Dick’s Sporting Goods (and Field and Stream Stores) from membership due to pro-gun control activities which are contrary to the goals of the NSSF.

You can read the NSSF’s news release here:

https://www.nssf.org/nssf-expels-dicks-sporting-goods/

Way to go NSSF. Who will expel them next?

I find it ridiculous that in the USA we have lost common sense and think that firearms are the problem when its painfully obvious that we have a serious social problem in this country that goes much deeper than more firearm controls that have never proven to resolve any issues.

I don’t fully grasp the concept that, in the USA, the ‘tool’ is to blame for an act that was perpetrated by a human. Should we institute controls for any item that is used to harm another person? For example, rocks, bricks, baseball bats, rope, duct tape,exploding mobile phones and etc.

I hope we can find a common sense solution that works…

Springfield Armory Severs Ties with Dick’s Sporting Goods

springfield armory logoIn light of Dick’s Sporting Goods newly minted pro-gun control stance, Springfield Armory is the first firearm manufacturer to cut ties with Dick’s Sporting Goods.

I can’t wait to see who cuts ties next.

This was posted yesterday on the Springfield Armory Facebook page:

Springfield Armory announces its decision in response to Dick’s Sporting Goods’ attempts to deny Second Amendment freedoms

GENESEO, IL, (05/03/18) – Springfield Armory is severing ties with Dick’s Sporting Goods and its subsidiary, Field & Stream, in response to their hiring a group for anti-Second Amendment lobbying.

This latest action follows Dick’s Sporting Goods’ decision to remove and destroy all modern sporting rifles (MSR) from their inventory. In addition, they have denied Second Amendment rights to Americans under the age of 21. We at Springfield Armory believe that all law abiding American citizens of adult age are guaranteed this sacred right under our Constitution.

It is clear where Dick’s Sporting Goods and its subsidiary, Field & Stream, stand on the Second Amendment, and we want to be clear about our message in response. Their position runs counter to what we stand for as a company. At Springfield Armory, we believe in the rights and principles fought for and secured by American patriots and our founding forefathers, without question. We will not accept Dick’s Sporting Goods’ continued attempts to deny Second Amendment freedoms to our fellow Americans.

Dick’s Sporting Goods Hires Gun Control Lobbyists!

dicks sporting goods image

 

I guess this is a first.

A company that actively sells firearms has hired a firm to lobby congress on their behalf in support of GUN CONTROl.

Yep, that is correct, Dicks Sporting Goods (as well as Field and Stream Stores) are now  pro-gun control.

I guess destroying all of their ‘AR-15’ style weapons inventory and refusing to sell to persons less than 21 years of age was not enough.

Please share this news with everyone you know, especially those who are pro-gun and let them decide if they want to support that chain anymore.

I know my answer.

You will also want to contact all firearm related manufacturers that Dick’s carries and let them know that you are concerned and ask them if they plan to stop selling to Dick’s and take it from there.

This will not stand.
