Dick’s Sporting Goods has just has their Q4 2013 Earnings call. They are having a hard time keeping ammunition in stock. Edward W. Stack (CEO) said during the call …
We actually have people who call the store every morning to find out if we got ammunition, they come in and buy it. This is — but we don’t expect the ammunition supply to be fixed anytime soon.
The CEO of a public company unlikely to be deceptive when making public forward-looking statements. If he believes ammunition supply will not be fixed anytime soon, I am inclined to believe him.
He also confirmed that they have no plans to restock Modern Sporting Rifles (AR-15s).
