Statement from Troy Industries Regarding Dicks Cancelling Pre-Orders

20121120140637632_1-tm-tfb

Many people pre-ordered Troy rifles from Dick’s Sporting Goods during their Black Friday sale. Dick’s recently canceled all these pre-orders. One reader wrote to us saying …

These rifles were sold before Black Friday, paid for in full and up front, and those of us who purchased them were promised that we would receive them in a timely manner. Promise after promise as each week went by, and most of us still have not received them, After holding our money for 5+ weeks, Dick’s is now saying they are going to cancel all unfilled orders, due to them no longer wanting to sell “evil black rifles” because of the recent school shooting. I do not want a refund, and I am not alone.

Troy Defense has made a statement regarding the cancelation of pre-orders …

Troy Defense (Troy), a division a Troy Industries, Inc., was deeply dismayed and shocked to hear through national media outlets that Dick’s Sporting Goods (DSG) made the decision to stop selling the Troy Carbine along with other modern sporting rifles. DSG did not contact or inform Troy of this decision prior to notifying the public. Nor was Troy informed by DSG that cancellation letters were being sent to customers, set to arrive on Christmas Eve (a day Troy was closed).

Troy has invested millions of dollars in its facility and operations to bring its first ever modern sporting rifle to the market under an exclusive contract with DSG. In selecting DSG as the sole distributor of the Troy Carbine, Troy relied on DSG’s high sales forecasts and sales potential prior to undertaking the significant financial and corporate commitment necessary to design, develop, manufacture and bring a new modern sporting rifle to the marketplace. Based on DSG’s press release, DSG’s anti-gun stance is clear – DSG will not continue modern sporting rifle sales and Troy will sadly not see its Carbine readily available — despite the outlay of millions of dollars by Troy and its commitment to support DSG in its distribution efforts.

Troy is currently researching other channels to ensure continuous and consistent distribution for its rifles. But please note, Troy’s pricing to DSG was based upon volume sales. It is unlikely that pricing to any other outlet in the future will support the pricing granted to DSG. Troy understands the anger of certain DSG customers whose purchases have been cancelled – you got a great price from DSG. However, Troy, itself, cannot come anywhere close to offering the Carbine at the price DSG was offering it. DSG devalued and diluted Troy’s brand when it offered for sale the Carbine at a steeply discounted price during Thanksgiving week. As a result of the sale price set by DSG, DSG oversold and overpromised its inventory. Nonetheless, the current ill-will could have been avoided had DSG not terminated modern sporting rifle sales, promptly canceled overpromised orders, and forthrightly communicated with Troy.

Troy is hopeful that it will soon identify a new distribution channel for its Carbine. We ask for your patience and support during this difficult and transitory time.

    Sounds like Dick’s was selling the guns as a bit of a loss leader, and maybe used the public uproar to cancel an agreement that was no longer financially beneficial to them. I’ve never bought anything from DSG, but I definitely never plan to now.

    Couldn’t an actual pro gun company like Brownels or Midway partner up with Troy to sell these? Or is the draw for them the Brick and Mortar stores?

    • freeman

      With the end of Troys statement, this is what it sounds like to me. Dicks sold more than they wanted to take a loss on/ more than Troy could ?

      Never let a crisis go to waste.

    It is time to stop shopping at Dick’s. I will start going out of my way to find business elsewhere.

  • http://jamesrpatrick.com James Patrick

    Well, I’m never shopping there again.

    Mmm pretty dumb.
    I am sure a lawyer could help.
    Never heard of this company either..
    Probably won’t exist much longer.
    No loss.

    Here is a real problem..

    If the things are not banned I am sure Troy will sell tons..

  • Mr. Fahrenheit

    Sounds like plain old breach of contract.

    One remedy might be the difference in price you had to lay out of your pocket to put yourself in the position you would have been in if the contract had been honored by Dick’s.

    Consult a lawyer. Or your local small claims court. Or wait until there is a class action suit and look for ways to spend your $2.50 coupon to Dick’s Sporting Goods.

    When I found out about the Dick’s knee-jerk reaction, I wrote a very polite, nonaggressive letter about how it was the tradition of my friends and I to go to several Denver Broncos home games every season and always stop at Dick’s for a new Broncos shirt, jacket, jersey, etc. I informed them I would stop the tradition unless the new policy changed. I got an auto-response guaranteeing a response in 48 hours. That was about a week ago.

    I guess us crazy, angry, redneck gun lovers aren’t worth even a canned response. No matter that I’m a year and a half from being a practicing attorney in the Denver area, where I hope to build my career and life. Never mind that I’m on the Broncos season ticket wait list. And never mind that before this I LOVED DSG.

    Dick’s can join Cheaper Than Dirt as a company who lost thousands and thousands of dollars in my future revenue alone based on how they handled the tragic events in Newtoen. And here’s to the ones like Brownells, Magpul, and MidwayUSA. They might not be perfect, but at least we know they won’t sacrifice the shooting community upon the altar of political correctness and appeasement of the enemies of the Second Amendment.

    • Squirrel Nut

      Dick actually read and down voted your comment.

  • bbmg

    When I saw the post title I thought Troy Industries were complaining about individuals cancelling orders, referring to them in a crude manner.

  • Sian

    So how is this not a huge breach of contract? How can Dick’s not be on the hook for every order? I don’t see how a company can simply decide to change its policy and leave hundreds of customers and a legal business in the lurch without serious repercussions.

    Maybe Troy can make a deal with Bass Pro Shops?

    • Anonymous

      They are on the hook, that’s why they’re giving the money back. If they were trying to keep the money, it would be another issue.

      • http://suburbansdomain.blogspot.com Suburban

        Yeah, but the customers ordered a rifle, a WHOLE rifle, at $799. At this point, you’d be hard pressed to find an upper like that for $799. So, the customer gets the refund, which may fund half, or maybe a third of a rifle like the Troy carbine advertised, if they can find one.

        If I paid for a Corvette last month, and the dealership canceled the order, refunded my money, and all I could get with that money was a Malibu, I’d be disappointed. Shouldn’t Dick’s have to pony up enough cash for the customer to purchase a like product? Either that, or suck up their political objections and fulfill the contract?

  • DougE

    Why does the customer statement say that he does NOT want a refund?

    If I spent that much I’d want a refund.

    Dick’s has always been anti-gun. They’ve always shunned the “EBR.” They probably just realized they could get some extra cash because ARs were SO popular they just couldn’t not do it… until some wacko that doesn’t represent gun owners used a gun to kill kids.

    • Fyrewerx

      I think that writer meant he still wanted the rifle rather than the refund. Obviously, he’ll take the refund, but the way things are going currently, will have a hard time finding an AR-style rifle at a relatively low price.

    • Rob in Katy

      If it ordered the gun from Dick’s over another outlet and now he cannot buy a gun anywhere else, my thought is they owe him additional compensation for violating their contract now now putting the customer in a spot where 1) there are no rifles available and 2) those that are available are now over priced. I hope they sue for the difference.

  • TangledThorns

    I read a post about this on ar15.com where someone got a $100 gift card as compensation from Dick’s for cancelling the order. This is ugly but that is better customer service than most companies out there.

    • Totenglocke

      But why would you want to shop at such a dickish company?

      • Icchan

        Badump tish.

      • http://suburbansdomain.blogspot.com Suburban

        Take the $100 of free stuff. It’s not going to benefit Dick’s. They’ll be out $100 worth of stuff, with no cash going into the register or bank account. Sort of, “take the merchandise and run,” and be done with them.

  • D

    And that’s why you should always shop at a local store, and not a franchise.

    • Anonymoose

      Dick’s ran my local army surplus store out of business though, and is basically the only outdoorsy sporting goods store around here anymore. :C

    • jamieb

      Minor issue dicks are not franchise, they are corp owned chain store.

    • Cameron

      One of the locals around here is selling Pmags for $50.

      Local is usually better, but sometimes there are Dicks there too.

  • Nathan

    I’m a regular visitor to this blog, because I enjoy seeing and learning about what’s current in the world of firearms. The articles are well-written and responsible.

    But I find this article to be the direct opposite to the blog’s slogan of “Firearms not Politics”. I mean, this seems to be only about politics. Controversy that happens to be about firearms. What does a firearm enthusiast get out of this article other than a sore mood? It doesn’t even talk about the weapon in question.

    I hate to come off so negative, but I always liked this blog (and still do, don’t get the wrong idea) for standing true to its slogan. I’m not interested in politics and drama, I want pictures and information about guns.

    Of course I’m not against the notion of informing your readers of the nasty actions of a major company regarding firearms, but if articles like this are going on here, where has the slogan’s meaning gone?

    • Muntz

      Please review the definition of politics, since this article has nothing to do with politics.

      • Nathan

        I suppose I could be misinterpreting things, but there are loose meanings of the word ‘politics’ that could easily be included in what the tagline is referring to. Like, “no bullshit, just guns”. This article isn’t really about guns, it’s about a decision made by some company, that has sparked a lot of controversy. The tagline of this blog gave me the impression that it aimed to have no part in such hubbub.

        If you think this interpretation is so unreasonable, you could inform me of your disagreement instead of making a snide remark, asking me to look up the definition of a word. There’s no need for that.

      • Nathan

        To supplement my view:

        The comment above mine states, “This is a contractual breach. It doesn’t matter if it is a firearm or a swim suit.”
        Which illustrates my point quite nicely. The information in this article isn’t directly relevant to firearms. It just happens that the product in question is a firearm. Just like I don’t want to read about politics involving firearms, I don’t care to read about some company doing something stupid related to firearms.

      • Fyrewerx

        That’s understandable, however, since this blog regularly announces what new firearms become “available”, they should also be allowed to announce which firearms become “unavailable”.

      • Nathan

        That is a fair point, Fyrewerx. Some more info about the rifle itself couldn’t have hurt, though.

    • Muntz

      Indeed, I do believe you misunderstand, both the subject nature of this blog and the intentions of my suggestion to look up the word politics. If you feel slighted, I apologize for that, because I tend to be brief and direct. That said, this article fully conforms to the description listed under the About section: http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/about/

    • Mike Knox

      This article’s about Marketing, dumbass..

  • D.J.

    There is nothing political about this.
    It is a simple breach of contract.

    You offer to sell something at a price.
    I purchase it, pay for it and am told will be here soon as it is being manufactured.
    I am waiting and am OK waiting.
    You decide you A. Either sold it to cheaply at a loss or B. Don’t like the product anymore, So you cancel my order and shove a refund check at me.
    The product is still being made and will be available.
    I want my product.
    This is a contractual breach. It doesn’t matter if it is a firearm or a swim suit.

    • Anonymous

      I’m going to make a very simple point. Dick’s is already planning to give people their money back that bought the gun and didn’t get it.

      If you were to go to the court and successfully make the argument that they failed to deliver, the court would, with a probability approaching one, order them to: Give you your money back.

  • ZeCatnip

    I bought my first .22 at Dicks, quite a while ago. Sad to see them going in this direction.

  • http://www.nylonrifles.com mac66

    Guys in Michigan are filing a class action lawsuit against Dick’s. My son bought a Troy carbine at Dick’s 1 minute after midnight on Black Friday. Looks like he ended up getting the deal of the year. If they’d had two I would have bought one but decided against ordering one.

  • Raoul O’Shaugnessy

    So does this mean all those rifles earmarked for DSG can now be diverted into the normal consumer pipeline?

    Troy shouldnt have *any* trouble selling these ‘DSG Specials’ on the market right now. If anything, with the money that they stand to lose on these sales, it looks like Dick’s shot themselves in the….well…y’know.

    • TheSihr

      You know, this summer I walked past racks of AR’s at the local gun show to pick up a Sig .40SW for a replacement CCW sidearm. Since then then quest for a tactical rifle has been daunting. However, there have been a few companies (Cabellas included) willing to take my order. I will have no further business with DSG. EVER. That being said there are serious threats to our rights coming from Diane Feinstein, in 1994 we got by with a meaningless ban on cosmetics but this time we will all need to pick up that pen or dial that telephone and let our voices be heard.

    Some enterprising lawyer is going to notice that the people waiting for their guns almost certainly counted on receiving them and cannot find a substitute good at the same price now.

    I think a jury could be convinced that’s damages.

    Gimme my $800 rifle or the $3,000 (or more?) for an equivalent…

  • Mark

    Troy needs to make a deal with Cabelas. There is no way they stop selling black rifles. They ate REALLY in to selling guns.

    I thought it was funny when retailers started over-pricing mags. Supply and demand. Shoulda’ planned ahead. (I also hope that re-sellers are stuck with vast amounts of mags that they have to sell at a LOSS)

    When a retailer cancels pending orders for the sake of PC, they are screwing their customers.

    If true, Dick’s can eat dicks.

  • Lance

    Hope every gun owner boycotts DSG and show them compromising our gun rights will not be tolerated.

  • blake

    I was one of the lucky ones who actually got my rifle on black friday… sorry that it had to go this way for the rest of you…

  • Samopal

    I was just at a Dick’s in my local mall looking at some shotguns, I was glad to have found a big box store with decent prices. It’s sad they’re living up to their name since I’ll now be spending a little more money elsewhere for the same thing.

  • derfedl cadarn

    I live within 1 mile of a DSG store by their recent move they have forfeited any further business from me. Now Troy Defense in allowing through inattentive marketing practices DSG to undersell Troy’s volume price is equally responsible. DSG cancelling already paid in full orders is unconscionable ,Troy not honoring these prices is plain bad public relations. Honest business men would fill the orders loose some money build solid relationships and write the loss into the marketing budget. Let us hope that Troy has learned something about marketing agreements, if these orders go unfulfilled they will surely learn something about loss of business.

    • Nadnerbus

      That is not fair to Troy. All Troy can do is set the MSRP (manufacturer’s suggested retail price), the price they make their hoped for profit margin on. If a retailer that they distribute to decides to market their goods at below market value, usually to get customers into the stores where they will hopefully buy other merchandise at normal markup to create greater overall sales for themselves, that is on the retailer to take the loss, not the manufacturer.

      If I am reading between the lines correctly, Dick’s bough the guns from Troy at a higher value than they were selling them for, or at least a very small markup. If Troy can’t make money on them selling them for the price Dick’s was offering them, we can’t expect them to go bankrupt filling orders for prices they did not set. That is Dick’s financial responsibility.

      • Dean Guilberry

        Not really true that Troy cannot tell Dicks whatthe minimum price is. Companies do it all of the time it was probably in their exclusive agreement between the dicks and troy. Then Dicks breached the agreement and Troy probably sent them a nasty letter and then the shooting let the Dicks bow out for popular reasons.
        What a bunch of CARP. I will not ever go into the Dicks store again.

    • jamieb

      Nope. Does troy get you in a store with the chance to sell you ammo? Mags? Tree stand? A not on sale second weapon. Its no more on troy than it is on the guys who thought a rain check was the same as having a gun. Dicks also DID get people in the door under false pretense and made sales of other goods they otherwise would not have enjoyed. Retail is all about foot traffic. If you have the right numbers you make money. Troy gets non of that.

  • http://offgridsurvival.com OffGridSurvival

    At least I know who not to buy from after this mess. Dicks along with Walmart and Cheaper Than Dirt have all been added to my list of stores I will never shop at again. In my opinion there is no reason to compromise on the 2nd amendment ever. These Knee-jerk reactions are ridiculous.

  • Steve

    Dick’s customer service promptly read a prepared script to me when I called their customer service today requesting more info. I called twice and both times the young ladies said “the orders were not able to be fulfilled.” I got the feeling they were pointing a finger at Troy. I requested to speak with someone higher in the chain and was promptly told by both ladies they “had nothing more to add to the conversation” and was promptly hung up on. I want my Troy. However, I feel there is more to the story. Dick’s unfortunately used the Newtown TRAGEDY as an escape from a hole they dug themselves. Too bad Troy won’t make lifelong customers by offering those preverbally screwed by Dick’s a sweet deal.

  • http://www.tacticaltshirts.com Tacticaltshirts.com

    There is no way around it. At least from what I am reading. If the facts presented are correct, and Dick’s entered into a contract with Troy, and one party broke / violated that contract; it’s actionable.

    If I was an attorney, I would love to represent Troy on this. I can show a contract. I can show breech of contract. I can show Dick’s un-justified motivation for breaking that contract.

    Subsequently, I can show real financial damage to Troy. I can also show costs incurred by Troy to fill this contract. I can show (with Dick’s evidentiary disclosure) the lost revenue to Troy.

    I can also show how Dick’s actions were slanderous and libelous to Troy. I can show that Dick’s actions have damaged Troy’s reputation with it’s past, current and potentially future customers. I can show that Dick’s actions were a deliberate attempt to associate Troy and their products with the actions of an alleged mass murderer and the alleged make of that weapon. None of which are associated with Troy by fact, implied or suspected by controlling legal authorities.

    This case is a monster and it’s coming for Dicks. Roy Schneider said it best, “You’re gonna need a bigger boat”.

  • Mark Horning

    Dicks is a 2-story Sports Authority but with worse ammo selection. They make their money selling yoga pants not guns. Almost all of the guns on the rack are either 3.5″ “duck” guns or expensive over/unders.

    Any two-bit gun shop in town has a better firearms selection. Big-5 has a better selection.

  • Alex Mc

    I hope Troy’s ends up suing Dick’s out of existence…

  • Jacob

    I love internet lawyers. The whole breach of contract imaginary lawsuit, what court have any of you guys been in?

    Items even ordered items are subject to availability. Additionally you would have to show loss. The only way to do that would be for Dicks to cancel everyone’s unfilled order, then stock the stores with the exact same guns at a higher price, then for someone that had a canceled order to go to the same Dicks store and buy the exact same gun at the higher price.

    Then you could take them to small claims and get the difference. No damages, etc.

    Anytime you are getting a deal too good to be true you take a risk. You didn’t get the gun but you didn’t lose any money either. From their statement it didn’t sound like Troy was going to be able fill the orders anyway as their statement indicated that Dicks should have canceled the orders _sooner_.

  • Jacob

    Troy claims a significant cost over the selling price of $800. Where’s the margin in a $1100 gun for Troy. Those numbers are too close together. Take out Dicks profit and what’s left over for Troy?

    The numbers don’t add up. If they spent millions as they claimed and their gross margins are that low. How did they ever expect to make money? That’s like 20-30,000+ ARs just to break even?

    • Morghan

      It sounds like they sold them after their stock was depleted, and Troy is still making the rifle and selling it to them so their decision to not honor their sales can’t be blamed on the manufacturer. If they were selling available stock the orders would have been shut down when all the rifles were gone.

  • http://www.KudzuTactical.com Matthew

    I bet the real DSG – Defense Solutions Group – wishes they had left that acronym out of the freaking press release.

  • Falco Marconni

    Take a look at DSG’s quarterly volume of stock selling for Oct-Dec. Nice tight little spike in sell-off volume right there before the T-giving sale. Looks like a top-brass sell-off. Looking at that picture, it makes you wonder how much they knew before hand. Interesting date correlations.

    Citigroup reported on Thursday that they have reaffirmed both their rating and their price target for sporting goods retailer, Dicks Sporting Goods Inc(DKS).

    The firm reported that they have maintained their “Buy” rating and $58 price target on DKS. This price target suggests a 18% increase from the stock’s current price of $47.17.

    An analyst from the firm noted, “DKS announced changes today to its e-commerce deal with 3rd party provider GSI Commerce, which was acquired by eBay last year. The agreement, which was previously set to expire in February 2024, is now ending January 2017. As a reminder, DKS took over operating responsibility (merchandise procurement, assortment, and pricing) in Feb 2009, while GSI has remained responsible for web hosting, maintenance, fulfillment, and customer service.”

    Dicks Sporting Goods shares were mostly flat during premarket trading Thursday. The stock is up 28% YTD.

    The Bottom Line
    Shares of Dicks Sporting Goods (DKS) have a 1.06% dividend yield, based on last night’s closing stock price of $47.17. The stock has technical support in the $42-$45 price area. The stock is trading near the all-time highs of $52-$54 a share.####
