Default Another senseless purchase restriction

Responsible experienced and successful 17 year old bow hunter turned away from purchasing new blank arrow shafts @ DICKS. Perhaps this is an old law but it's new to me. Customer had to go back with parent to make purchase.

That's stupid.
Until it's "armed" it just an aluminum tube. I don't shop at dicks.

He should get them somewhere else..then call Dick's to explain.

Dick's management is afraid of King Andy. A couple a years ago, before the UnSafe act went into law. I went to buy two boxes of 22LR. The person at the register asked me to give them my date of birth (I'm now in my 60's). When I asked why, they said it was required by law. I made a big stink about Dick's making up laws arbitrarily instead of following the law, and asked for the store manager. when he came, I told him that the law did not require me to give him my DOB to buy ammo, just that I had to be of legal age. He said the UnSafe Act required it. I told him that the UNSafe act was not in effect until the following year. He backed down and sold me the ammo without me having to give them my DOB.

I stopped going to Dicks. I'd rather do business with places that support our 2nd amendment.

Dick's no longer received any business from me. It's a longer drive to Cabela's but I'll do it to avoid patronizing Dick's. If Dick's would have supported the Second Amendment, I'd still shop there.
