Dick's Sporting Goods and Herb Phillipson's returning Guns to Manufacturer NOW (Syracuse, NY)
me

Posted on 01/19/2013 4:47:52 PM PST by MacMattico

I am not an expert on gun types, although I have shot many and know the ones I have shot, so don't kill the messenger if I mess this thread up!

My husband went to Dicks Sporting Goods and Herb Phillipson's in search of a Mossberg 702 or a Rueger 10 Flash 22, both 22 calibre's with 10 round clips and both stores were all out. He asked if there was a run on what my husband called "a gun he wished to buy for his daughter." Both store managers told him their corporate offices made them send all of these 22's back to the company, as they had 10 round clips. My husband had the law printed out from Gov. Cuomo's office showing them that these could be purchased up until April 1st. Both managers said their company tells them what to do and the company was concerned with "liability". So my husband said will you be getting these back with a 7 round clip? AND THE ANSWER WAS "NO, NO MANUFACTURER IS GOING TO MAKE A 7 ROUND CLIP JUST FOR NY, THEY'LL SEND US THE 5 ROUND THEY ALREADY MAKE!" Did Cuomo know this? (I ask because he's an idiot). Is this his sneaky way of getting NY down to 5 round clips and gun dealers already sending away guns they don't have to through "liability" intimidation?

This is getting really bad. Does Obama even realize the division he's causing, one we may never come back from?

Suggestion: Move out of that Hell-hole before the wall goes up. Real estate prices in Dallas/Ft Worth, for instance, would blow your mind! And jobs galore.

New Yorkers can live with the clowns they’ve elected. If your fellow voters are idiots (and they are) why don’t you try a free state?

Nothing stopping you from buying magazines in another state (but save your receipts to show they were bought before the ban went into effect).

I believe Obama not only KNOWS the division he is causing but is counting on it.

The Won knows exactly what he's doing.

He's been raised from his mother's knee to hate freedom and to hate Western Civilization in general, and to hate the United States in particular.

If he got his way, we would be a third-world socialist dungheap.

Keep all that in mind, and everything he does makes perfect sense.

A "Rueger 10 Flash 22"? Gosh, those Ruegers must be bad?

Time to boycott those Gun Sellers who cave. Maybe they can stay alive selling airguns.

That said, the only defense against Obama and his Fascist agenda is an armed, local militia.

Frikk you Obama. This country will never lay down its arms to a pretend American from Indonesia (even if you did visit Pock-ee-stahn in college under a foreign passport).

FUBO, Gay Guy...go to Man's Country and leave the rest of us alone.

Just try to disarm us. You will learn all about those who still "cling" to guns and Bibles.

the last go around on gun control...Smith and Wesson “cooperated” and their business nose dived..they had to sell to someone else.

I think I may go into the Dicks store tomorrow, and say “goodbye” to the manager IN PERSON! HA.

Then you don’t get the left at all (with all due respect). They use our laws and buy up businesses to be used against us. Al Gore just sold his TV Chan (Current) for PetroDollars.....while touting “Save The Earth”. Obama/Holder walked guns to drug cartels while preaching gun control. Obama HATES him some “Big Banks”.....except they’re contributing to his campaign. Etc, etc.

Obama does know what he's doing. He's doing this by design because he wants to destroy the United States and a civil war is that way.

The other East Coat Donkey governors will help Barry when they implement draconian gun laws in MA and MD as they have in NY. People are choosing up sides and things are like playing with matches in a room full of black powder.

Try loading 7 rounds into a Garand.

Since I’m going to learn to shoot tomorrow I had to go find ammo today - which wasn’t easy. Finally found a gun store that had some and the place had a line at the door literally - I guess it was an occupancy regulation or something. Took me about 20 minutes to get inside.

Yes I know. They sell two and five round clips, but the gun still has an 8 round mag (depending on how you define mag).

>>>hardcore libs would never have sold guns<<<

Al Gore is a hardcore lib and just sold his cable channel for millions in Middle East oil money.

Hollywood is overwhelmingly liberal and they sell violence first and foremost.

Liberal politicians and strategists leave public service in a twinkling whenever a sufficient wad of cash is waived their way.

Obama is a bitter, spiteful, racist liberal and yet he fills his cabinet with elitist, often rich white men.

Liberals don’t give a crap for principle where money and power are involved, i.e. everywhere.

But the original Colt .45 ACP was 7-round magazine.

The Garand device is called an “en bloc clip”.

Different from a magazine, and different from a stripper clip.

please don’t try to clump the upstate NYers with downstate. For many years we wanted to separate from down state. The downstate metrosexuals don’t understand us (hunters and fishermen) from upstate.

Obama is trying to incite violence

Violence? Naahh. Not here. Prepare for tough times? Yep. Got 1st of 2 reloading supplies shipments yesterday. It amazes me how little reloadable brass is out there in popular calibers (not just .223). And had to hunt to find the new loading press and dies I wanted.I noticed that in order to have ammo and brass several of the suppliers were importing Partizan Ammo. Have read it is OK. (Serb) At least they have inventory (did not buy any)

I am positioning myself to have enough ammo for my 2 Winchester lever rifles (94 &71) and our 30/06's. I was able to find some hard to get new brass for the .348 and some nice Hornady Leverevolution 200gr bullets.

I wonder what they’re doing with the guns when they make it back?

Probably not destroying them ... more likely shipping them (or storing them for future shipment) to places like Texas and Kentucky where they’re in greater demand right now.

I don’t have a problem with them doing that. New Yorkers deserve the government they elected. Sucks for those who didn’t vote for Cuomo ... and especially those who lack the means to leave the state for one that’s more 2nd-Amendment friendly.

I also don’t have a problem with them storing the guns in inventory for a while to allow the market values to increase. Sucks for people wanting to purchase guns, but that’s how a market economy works.

Shhhhhhhh. Don’t give them any ideas. We have enough of
those northeastern redcoat commie types moving down here
already. All they will do is whine about the heat and vote
for the first Obama type that promises them free a/c . The last thing Texas needs is to be polluted by
the liberal vote.

Oh yes they will. Just look at Holly Wood how many movies or TV shows involving firearms would be made if they stayed true to there principals.

I actually could admire Richard Dean Anderson’s principles when he starred in MacGyver, but with Stargate1 he lost it. It was ok for him to use firearms in his work but he was against anyone else having access to them.

Dicks recently opened a couple stores in..Tulsa, OK.

From what I can see...their prices are out of line anyway.

But I'm sorry....I just ain't setting foot..into a store called Dicks.

And this just seals it for me. I will never shop there.

Hey! I’m no lib! I’m in upstate NY in a traditionally conservative county born and raised. My ancestors came here and owned and farmed half the county. But NY has been taken over. I’m outta here in aprox. 5 years when it will be most advantageous to my family. Meanwhile, I vote and try to make changes in my home state.

The money Texas doesn’t get because there is no Income Tax is made up by the outrageous Property Taxes, over 3% of Full Appraised Value.

If you work, Texas is the place to be, if you retire with little income, not so much.

Of course it isn’t that bad. In Jersey they screw you on both Income and Property Taxes.

In Mississippi, you get a break on Property Taxes if you’re over 65, and Property is cheap as well.
