Mossberg Terminates Relationship with Dick’s Sporting Goods

Goodbye, Dick's. And good riddance.
Mossberg Terminates Relationship with Dick’s Sporting Goods

NORTH HAVEN, CT –-(Ammoland.com)- 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. Firearm retailers can be found through the Mossberg Dealer Locator by visiting www.mossberg.com/dealers/.

    I am looking forward to shopping at Dick’s Sporting Goods again really soon, at their GOING OUT OF BUSINESS Sale 🙂 I am questioning Mossberg’s longevity. I have a 500 pump that I bought in 1986 and put a slug barrel on it in 2000. I have thousands of trouble free rounds through it.. My longevity question is “I wonder how long it will last?” Since I don’t have the answer to that question yet I decided to start all over again and purchased a 930 JM Pro about two years ago. I only have 500 rounds through it so… Read more »

    If you have a Mossberg 500, you’d better learn to like that model because you have a lifetime supply right there in your hands. They present another problem as well … whenever I’m fondling a new vunder-shotgun, my wife sidles past and asks “What will that one do that your old Mossberg won’t?” For that question, I have no answer.

    You need too tell her you need just one more when she asks.
    1 more for slugs 1 more for Trap 1 more for Skeet 1 more for Sporting clays ETC. Just buy them in different camo patterns and different Gauges. She won’t know the difference. At least mine doesn’t.

    Then you will need different Choke tubes for each sport. It just goes on and on if you want it too.

    Let’s do this at the voting booth also. Vote all the Gun Grabbing Traitors (GGT’s) out of office. Maybe we can start recalling them right now. And how about TREASON charges for these GGT’s who knowingly and willfully broke their oath ?

    Pleased to hear that gun makers are telling Dick’s and Field & Stream to go stick it where the sun don’t shine. Plus the NSSF booted them out of the trade association! Good Riddance!

    Owner of a Mossberg 500 and a 590A1. Reliable, durable boomsticks, never had a reason to second guess my purchase of a Mossberg!

    I for one and I know many others are so glad. It’s well past time that someone meaning firearms manufacturers as well as ammunition manufacturers do this. I praise them highly. Now if only other manufacturers would follow suit. We need to show these people that our rights are not to be trampled, nor are they for sale. This posturing and signing have to be stopped at all costs. I need to go to Mossbergs site and thank them for what they have done. It makes me even happier to own a 500. Now if all would follow. I might… Read more »

    Other companies have been using the Dick’s “institute your own laws” policy against CA for sometime now. Cheaper than Dirt won’t ship 6 position buffer tubes to CA (not illegal if building a featureless rifle), Spike’s won’t even ship a stripped lower to CA, lots of other sellers won’t ship to CA because they are upset about our gun laws. What is the difference between what Dick’s is doing and these sellers?

    If you have a Dunham’s sports location nearby also, they are very much a pro second amendment sporting goods store and a good place to support. When so many stores took ar-15s off their shelf recently, Dunham’s put all theirs in stock out on their shelves.

    I have a Mossberg 930 semiauto shotgun. It is a great home defense weapon and fun to shoot at the range. I had a Mossberg pump, but age and arm strength forced the change even though the pump was a great gun.
    Good going Mossberg.

    You can’t go wrong with a Mossberg firearm, the quality and reliability would be difficult to top at any price. I own a model 500 and a 590 pump shotgun, a friend owns a Shockwave and an auto loader.
    I recommend Mossberg to anyone interested in a good shotgun or rifle.

    I just went to their contact us page and thanked them:

    I want to commend you for severing Dick’s from your dealer body. I cut off Dick’s from my purchase locations after their first episode of idiocy after Sandy Hook. I’m a loyal Mossy owner. 2 shotty’s and a patriot. I love them all. Keep up the good work and thanks for taking action and for excusing my poor puns.

I thank you, my late Brother, Father and Grandfather, all Veterans, we say Thanks as well to Mossberg and Springfield Armory. I received an E-mail yesterday from RUGER stating that they “Were standing up to shareholders that were putting pressure on them to change their business model”. They said “NO WAY” and will not cave. Soon to be 3 Genuine American Firearm Manufactures, with a set of Balls. God Bless Mossberg, Springfield and RUGER. Proudly American Built, and Proudly American Owned. There… Read more »

    Hurray Mossberg.
    More firearm manufacturers need to stop doing business with organizations who actively support and finance the attack on law abiding gun owners. Why should any manufacturer do business with someone who actively works towards putting them out of business. It would be like handing the jihadi a knife and standing there and letting them cut your head off. Hornady is an ammo business who has cut ties with New York law enforcement for the same reason. Bravo to these brave suppliers for standing up for our 2nd Amendment guaranteed RIGHTS!

    It’s about time gun owners and the industry start going on the offense. Too long have we been saying and taught that “we’re not like them”, “we don’t support boycotts. etc. What has that done for our cause? Nothing! We remain on the defense at all times. This is the future of our fight to win back and preserve our 2nd Amendment rights. Kudos to Mossberg.

    Thank you, Mossberg, you have done well! We 2nd Ammendment supporters commend you for your positive action relative to Dick’s anti-gun movement. We feel confident that many other firearms manufacturers will follow suit, and those who don’t will suffer the same fate as Dick’s.

    You can’t go wrong. I’ve a Mossberg 500 pump, black with wood, that is flawless. Shop around, they can be had for around $300 or less. One of the best buys I ever made.

    With Mossberg severing ties with Dick’s, the domino effect should should be ramping up quickly. My guess it will be Hornady next as they have already stopped sales to NY state agencies.

    ALL firearms and hunting related manufacturers need to pull the plug on Dicks immediately. Show the hunters and gun owners you REALLY DO support the second amendment.

    More firearms companies need to follow Mossbergs refusal to sell products to Dicks or any other company working against the second amendment rights of the people.
    Besides good firearms Mossberg has good sense.

    Now, if all 100 million plus gun owners would keep ourselves and our families out of the Dick’s stores entirely, the entire chain would fold. We have far more economic and political clout than we realize – and likely far more than the anti-gun folks – but only if we act as a group. We could literally shut down every anti-gun retailer and bankrupt them. If we do it to Dick’s the rest will be very careful about their posturing.

    What is your decision about selling weaponry to localities across America who are INFRINGING the RIGHTS of Americans????
    One weapons maker has decided NOT to sell weapons or ammo to governmental locations which RESTRICT the LEGAL LAW ABIDING American Citizens.
    What is your consensus?

    Mossberg makes the hottest selling scary self defense gun. The Shockwave and other scary looking Guns lost sales has put a big dent in their Dick Head’s business.
    BTW what does the “Field” stand for in Field and Stream stores? Let me guess? Butterfly catching. Only problem is Dick’s discontinued butterfly nets. Instead of hunting in an open field, I was hoping to sing “tiptoe through the tulips” catching butterflys instead of hauling my heavy scary looking old model AK-47.
