Dick's "Gun-smithing."
#1
So the kid wants to go deer-hunting.

He buys a Mossberg 500 and BSA scope from Dick's in Montgomeryville.

The so-called "gunsmith" at that toilet claims to have mounted the scope properly and bore-sighted it so he'll "get on paper."

We took it to the range.

Well, let's talk about getting on paper, shall we? The windage was fine but at 50 yards the slug was hitting at least 3 to 4 feet high. Not inches. Feet.

Like right over the berm.

Took a closer look; the rings were incredibly loose on the rail. Like five or six easy turns loose. When they were tightened, the reticule was noticeably out of square with the world. We'll deal with that after his first hunting trip.

We're talking at least 100 "clicks" to get on paper and to avoid damaging the backstop. The bucks would have been laughing at him.

Why doesn't Dicks just admit that they don't know WTF they're doing, and throw in about three dozen rounds of ammo with each purchase where they mount the scope?

Why would you think some wingnut at Dick's would have a clue at what he/she is doing anyway?? Shrug

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.

More importantly, why would you admit to supporting those bastards?

It's almost as though they acted like a bunch of dicks.

Emptymag is much nicer to Dicks on this site. I was looking forward to a barbedwire pinapple response. Stirpot
Everytime we look the other way when someone else loses rights we disagree with, we make it easier to lose the rights we support.

I didn't send him there, and didn't find out ahead of time to give him a wave-off. So he learned for himself Smile

Ona sorta related note. I heard quite a few people talking about the new Field and Stream that just opened in Altoona and how nice it was, blah, blah, blah. Tthey were people that swore off Dicks after the last fiasco. Well, I told them the background about F&S and they went ballistic, and said they would tell all their friends to stay away, they were not happy that the dicks from Dicks would pull this but they also weren't surprised.
