    Dick's Sporting Goods sells all types of sporting long guns (rifles and shotguns)

    ***** Sporting Goods (DSG) does not show their firearms on the website for a number of reasons.

    #1 Not all firearms that DSG carries are available and in stock in every one of the 300+ locations. Local hunting conditions and financial demographics help influence the corporate office in the firearm selection in the various markets. If a firearm that is normally carried is not in stock, a store to store transfer might be able to be arranged. This process can take up to two weeks due the logistics of their distribution center. If a customer is in an extreme hurry, a firearm can be sent via UPS once the proper authorization is received.

    #2 The website is ran by a seperate company, not by DSG. The company that runs the site also runs sites for several other sporting goods companys.

    #3 The firearms that you may see listed on Wal Marts website are their special order firearms. These may, but probably may not, be readily available in their brick and mortar locations. Not all Wal Marts stores carry firearms, many have gotten out of the business due to some legal issues.

    #4 All DSG stores have a firearm special order program available. Every location charges the same price and has the same firearms available through special order. Once a customer decides what they would like to purchase, a call is made to the distributor to see if the firearm is in stock. If it is, the customer then needs to put at least 50% down. Then a second call is made to the distributor to actually order the firearm.

    A "special order" form is then filled out and sent to the corporate office for processing. Expect it to take about 4 weeks for the firearm to arrive at the store location.

    At that point, the background check is initiated and, if they are given a "proceed", the firearm is released to the customer after final payment has been made.

    #5 The weekly sales flyers for DSG are listed on their website. You are able to select the store closest to you, or any of their locations. These sales flyers do show the firearms that are on sale during that time period

    There are a few other things you want to think about. First, how old and how big are you? Smaller bodys might be more comfortable with a 20 gauge, larger with a 12 gauge. The 12 is considered more versatile because it holds more shot and is commonly used for ducks and geese. Now, if you're going to shoot gees, you want a 12 gauge, 3 1/2 inch shells, which probably means an autoloader, even with a 28 or 30" barrel. However, if you were to hunt dove and quail you'd prefer a 26" barrel and 2 3/4" shells would be fine. Or, for dove, quail, pheasant and close-range ducks, a 20 gauge will do just fine. But with a 12 ga, with light loads you can also shoot quail and dove and pheasant. So much will depend on the type of hunting you're going to do. Talk to your dad and friends about what they shoot (guns and birds). The gun you use for geese might be too heavy to carry for dove and quail. Just some things to think about.

    Yes, ***** does sell firearms. I think the only sell rifles, shotguns, and pellet rifles. They never have put any guns on the website for some reason. Same with Dunham's Sports.

    Dick's had an add in last Sunday's paper, yes, they have shotguns for & on sale.

    Yes, they sale firarms. However I have had some issues with Dick's. I will never purchase anything from them ever again. Go to a local arms dealer. Or Cabela's or Bass Pro stores. They can help you and prices are alittle more but not overly priced.

    yes they do, but you won't find any on the website. Now is the time to buy, because they are on sale right now. Get your local Sundays paper and they should have a sales paper in there.
