They don't even have a choice, they had to drop hunting. Hunters and 2A supporters went else where.  Good for them and their shareholders, DKS closed down 11.01% today.

Don’t forget about the millions they will lose by reshelving the space.

Perhaps they will liquidate all ammo at deep discounts...but I suspect they'll be good doobies and pull it out of the stores to prevent evil gun owners from benefitting.

I was wondering the same thing and wondering if they will liquidate their guns at deep discounts. I too hate dicks but I also need a new tree stand for next fall archery season and if they put discounts on their hunting gear I will hold my nose and buy it there.

They don't liquidate evil, scary things, they just destroy them so nobody can have them.

I don't think d*ck's sells reloading gear/components, but back when those sporting goods stores named after each city they were in folded (Albany Sports & something, Lexington Sports and ?, San Antonio Sports and ? (was it Recreation?), I was grabbing Nosler Partitions and other bullets for $2 a box.

Too bad I didn't have enough cash to fill a 53-footer (they didn't have that much product really).

The back story. Even with Tuesday’s decline, d*ck’s shares have still climbed nearly 10% since the start of 2019 (though the shares are still off just under 1% in the trailing 12-month period). Athletic and ‘athleisure’ apparel have been a bright spot in retail, but d*ck’s—like so many bricks-and-mortar peers—has struggled in recent years to fend off online competition. Upbeat results from rivals such as Foot Locker (FL) show the category overall is still healthy—that puts even more pressure on companies like d*ck’s to show they’re still on top of their game.

What’s new. d*ck’s said it earned $1.07 a share on revenue of $2.49 billion in the fourth quarter. Analysts were looking for per-share earnings of $1.06 and revenue of $2.48 billion. Consolidated same-store sales fell 2.2% in the period, while gross margins narrowed to 27.9%.
