Powerbait and Trout worm deal

Recommended Posts

I'm a jig guy mainly and don't use powerbait or the pink trout worm much at all anymore.....BUT if you are, you can get on Dicks sporting goods today.  They have a deal where you can get 4 jars or 4 bags for $14 and there is a $10 mail in rebate.  So that equals a buck a bag or a buck a jar.  You can submit 4 rebates so you could get 16 jars or 16 bags for $16....they also have 10 inch worms etc for bass fishing.  If you spend over $50 you get free shipping as well.  Thought I would pass this along.

What is the problem with Dick's Sporting Goods?

They are crapping where they eat. First they stopped selling “assault weapons” then they hired anti-gun lobbiest. They have the right to do both things, but many see it as hypocritical for a company to profit off selling firearms, ammo, and accessories while simultaneously lobbying against the laws that make it possible to own them. 

Now back to the topic 👍

Dicks gets my business.  I don't have a problem with a store separating sporting firearms from Defense Weapons.  I pretty much support it.

Fly shops dont sell baitcasters, and some get downright offended if you ask where the Roostertails and crankbaits are.

Can't buy a 4-wheel ATV at a Harley Davidson shop either.

Their anti-Second Amendment policies  go far beyond modern sporting rifles. The first thing they did when they took over the Galyan's store in West County Center was remove all handguns, and handgun ammunition. That was probably 10 or 15 years ago, and I haven't seen a reason to buy from them since. That has been my personal choice.

Of course any merchant has the right to "separate" products any way they want. But when they do so in order to make a political point, and make a big deal out of it they deserve to lose business from people who disagree.

BTW as a side point, the AR platform is one of the most popular sporting rifles today. My son took a fine Northern Missouri 10 point buck with an AR chambered in 6.8 Remington SPC. A rifle that he built from a vast array of AR15 parts that are available on the market. That flexibility alone is what makes that particular rifle platform so popular. Buy the lower receiver, which technically is the "gun" (serial numbered part) and without all the machining, and finish work of a gunsmith that would be required with a bolt action receiver, you can build a great spotting firearm in chamberings from 22 caliber to 50 caliber.

Most popular, I'd argue because of the current mentality, if that's indeed true.  The AR was designed as a durable rifle with loose tolerances that could withstand being dragged in the mud, dunked in a creek, could withstand repeated fire without overheat seizure and is easy to clear in the case of a jam, and was relatively simple to disassemble in the field should a malfunction occur.   Sure you can morph one into a super accurate sporting rifle that will indeed get the job of meat hunting done.   Killing is killing.  The same can be said of just about any handgun.   Their primary purpose is for defense, or to be used as a weapon.  

I understand that they are fun for some folks to tinker with. That's incredibly obvious when a guy starts showing off his guns.  If he has an AR that'll be the first one he parades around with.   It aint the gun that turns me off, it's the mentality.   I'll tell ya right now that there would be no need for all this "second amendment" fighting and bickering if the AR and it's brethren had stayed in the military where they belong.
