SkunkWerks: MarkEC: Please give me an example of a retailer that has done something in the same vane as Dick's has.

No.

I said I'd go along with your derp. I don't much like getting locked into purchasing from a store I already probably have good reason not to purchase from in the first place either.

Now be happy, damn you.


LOL ok, I'm happy. I agree cash would be better. I'm just pointing out that a normal retail screw up doesn't screw you out of hundreds of dollars, so the $10 gift certificate to your local retailer is for covering an inconvenience. If you paid for an order for a $500 TV that was supposed to be delivered by Christmas and on Christmas eve you got a refund check instead, you'd be pissed. If you went out the day after Christmas and found the exact same TV at another store but it was $1000 you'd be doubly pissed and ready to sue.

Take your refund to a gun show. You'll probably get a better deal. And hope the government gives you a fair price when they confiscate it.

The Larch: Cuyose: So lets say you want a PHD in Education and you have saved the money to get it at your local state University.

No, even better, suppose you were driving a car, and someone told you that they'd buy you a new car if you drove them to McDonald's, but you had to drive past Wendy's first and pick up their friend Dave. So you drove to Wendy's, but the engine in your old car is super powerful, like maybe a 427 cubic inch Ford like they have in those really souped up Mustangs, but maybe the new car that you're going to get is a Chevy. Or maybe it's a Saturn, but it's actually new because its been sitting on the lot for the last three years because nobody wants a Saturn.

So what if it was like that? Then would you be able to collect damages?

2012-12-30 10:16:00 PM
I don't agree with the move they played. Also this is the reason if I know a product won't arrive in less than a week, then I don't buy it. Once I see something is backordered or says "might take 5-6 weeks for delivery, I cancel the order and find another place to shop. Buying futures is something stock brokers do when they have gut feelings or insider secrets.

StinkyFiddlewinks: You don't need 3 carbines you piece of shiat.


but but but freedom!

It's a funny kind of situation. Legally speaking, Dick's can decline to fulfill an order, no problem. But when was the last time Amazon or Overstock or any similarly large company gave you a $100 bonus without even being asked? Dick's is doing this because they fully intend to jack the prices up to ZOMG OBAMA'S A-COMIN' FER YER GUNS levels just as soon as they possibly can, and they know it, and they know you know it, and you know they know you know it, etc.

If it were anything else, people would just pocket their free money and STFU. But it's guns, and the Second Amendment clearly states that the right of the People to keep and bear deeply discounted arms at low low holiday doorbuster prices shall not be infringed by charging the free-market price during a gun panic.

No my analogy was exactly like the situation here, only instead of using guns, I used some other good that didn't evoke suck an emotional knee jerk response. I could come up with a car analogy for you if that is something you could understand. Let me know the color of the matchbox cars you're currently playing with and ill try to fit them into my story for you.

fusillade762: Krieghund: fusillade762: A week before Christmas, Dick's announced it was suspending sales of modern sporting rifles in all stores, out of respect for the victims of the Connecticut massacre.

Riiiight. I'll bet they just ran out of stock. Or they're waiting to jack up the price to milk more money out of panicked nitwits.

Because Dick's in the only place you can buy a gun in Texas.

Assault rifles are sold out across the country. Rounds of .223 bullets, like those used in the AR-15 type Bushmaster rifle used in Newtown, are scarce. Stores are struggling to restock their shelves. Gun and ammunition makers are telling retailers they will have to wait months to get more.


This is why we have a reloading setup and do our own bullets.

StinkyFiddlewinks: You don't need 3 carbines you piece of shiat.


Id bet they are trying to capitalize on the rush. Buy now at the current (and increasing) price, wait a couple months and sell for even higher.

Right now im sitting on a DTI AR-15, bought it earlier in the year, havent had a chance to get to the range with it, so its basically brand new...Im torn between keeping it (as a ban would prevent buying one in the future) and selling it to make a nice profit.

GROSS! When I first moved to Seattle someone once claimed that "Dick's is the In-N-Out of the Pacific Northwest". I was really excited and rushed off to Dick's and what did I get? An extremely mediocre burger where they refuse to hold the mayo. So far as I'm concerned, Dick's is nothing more than a more disgusting, more expensive version of Wendy's.

If there's one thing I learned from the experience, it' NEVER to trust Seattle hippies when it comes to delicious, greasy, fatty foods. I'll ask my fellow Buffalo, NY transplants where to eat from now on...

Oh....and Scooter's Burgers in Ballard? THAT can be considered the In-N-Out of the PNW.

ultraholland: Blackall says, "It's unacceptable."

You got a full refund plus a $100 gift card, you poor baby.



Considering the market, You'd be pissed too. Lets rewind 5 years. Say you put in an order with your broker 5 years ago for one ounce of gold for the going rate of $500 that will be placed into his vault for safe keeping. He got drunk at lunch and forgot to actually place your order that day. Two years later the price is now almost $1200 an ounce. You are looking at your asset listing and and notice according to your records you are an ounce short of gold. He offers to refund the $500 cash plus $100.

What are you going to do? go to another broker and buy an ounce of gold with that $600? Hell no. You're out $600 since your cash now only buys a half ounce!

Thats pretty much where this guy is sitting. He got a great deal, but even if he could sell the gift card to a buddy for cash at face value, that $900 isnt gonna buy him a replacement rifle. IF, and thats a big IF he can actually find a replacement on the shelf due to market demands that $900 will be a nice down payment only.

Class action still isnt the right course. All it does is annoy Dicks and put TONS of cash in the lawyer's wallets. Lawyers are the only ones who win as it does nothing appreciable for the litigants. "My class action over a $1000 loss caused Dicks to lose a couple million dollars and all I got was this free box of shotgun shells*."

graeylin: Hagbardr: Dick's gave them a full refund plus $100 gift card? The monsters!

double agree with this. Does it suck to not get what you were hoping for? Sure.

But, you got a good deal on the one(s) you did buy, you got all your money back, you got an EXTRA $100 that they didn't have to give you, and you still want to whine and moan?

Move to California and join the self entitled twits who populate this state. You'll be right at home.


It's nice of them to give an extra $100 back, but it would have been better to just send them their darn rifles. Anyone who ordered and paid for one at price is now looking at paying probably over $1500 for that same gun thanks to the spike in demand.

It doesn't matter. Stop treating it like a commodity. The fire-arm is a god damned "good" or "bauble". It is NOT a commodity. It's not traded and is not something that is scarce. Gold and Oil are commodities because there is a set amount in the god damned world.

This gentleman entered an order (or from the sounds of it a "rain check" since it wasn't in stock). This would be no different if the good had been a fishing rod or pair of shoes that was no longer made after making the rain check/order.

His money was returned which is all that Dick's was legally obligated to do. They did not have to offer the $100 gift card.

The original customer suffered no actual damages. Therefore there is no grounds for a lawsuit. As much as you guys keep imagining a "commodity" example, the fact is it's not. Therefore there is over 200 years of contract law on Dick's side and even more precedent if we use British Common Laws for precedent.

If this guy tries to sue the only people who make money are the damn lawyers.

Given the way the rhetoric about proposed bans is going, the only way I can see this buying frenzy working out for anybody is if it's a quick flip where you buy early, hold until the day before Congress votes down a ban and sell for a profit. Buying a gun for a stupid price that you're about to have to register for an expensive fee seems dumb unless you REALLY want that gun. The worst case is after all that you end up with a lot of money tied up in guns you can't sell, trade, or even bequeath.

I have a Glock .40 with a 31 round mag I got very cheap in a trade a couple of months ago. The way things are going if I time it right I'll get a semester's tuition out of it.

If the terms of the contract are goods in exchange for monetary compensation, yea they really can. If the fire-arm had been available at the time of purchase (it sounds like they were taking rain checks for a future in-stock item not taking a custom order) they would have simply exchanged the good for the monetary compensation. Since they did not have the fire-arm (it sounds like he was able to get 1 at the time of purchase) they offered him a rain check, or reservation on a future item that would be in stock. Since it is no longer in stock and since Dick's seems to be serious about no longer selling fire-arms all they have to do is refund his original money and send him on his way.

DarkSoulNoHope: The only damage that was done in this case is the gun manufacturer lost money, these people have no leg to stand on (or it got shot off).


IDK that Troy suffered damages.  The guns that it agreed to sell to Dick's for $X are now worth 2X or more.  If Troy can get out of this exclusive deal with Dick's then it will make a shiatload more money.  Dick's seems to be in breach of the contract.  I'd bet Troy's phone is ringing off its hook with dealers willing to take those guns.
 
2012-12-30 11:57:41 PM

Cluckity: This is total speculation, but it's possible Dick's is having behind the scenes issues with a supplier. If they pulled the guns off the shelf, and theoretically aren't going to be buying any more from the supplier, they may no longer have access to get those guns and give them to the customers.

In any case, sure it's frustrating for buyers, but they've been dealt with fairly. Take your $100 gift card and move on to something more important to whine about.



I read they pulled everything out of their stores. Firearms, BB guns, Airsoft. I'm wondering if one of their stores sold the ARs that have been used in the latest shootings.

The gun shop I used to go to back home sold 100 ARs in a day.

That's right... one hundred.
 
2012-12-31 12:06:13 AM

zamboni: Yeah... there are nuts out there. But in other... unreported news, there are 80,000,000 gun owners who didn't go on a killing spree this year. They went hunting. They went target shooting. Hell, they probably even concealed carried without incident. They protected their homes, their families and themselves. Perhaps they did have to use their weapon for defense. Maybe it was an investment. Maybe it just sat in a box. Maybe, they have what would be considered by some an unreasonable quantity of guns and/or ammunition... but they never broke the law. Why can't people understand this? Why can't people understand how much the news sensationalizes this?

Most of these people who go on these killing sprees have already broken multiple laws. How would more laws that only affect the law abiding change this? The Columbine killers had already broken 21 laws before they even set foot in that school. How many would stop them? 25? 30? 1000?

Somehow, someway we have to convince people that the problem isn't with people who actually obey laws.


I'm not even asking for more laws, just some introspection. The NRA should be telling their members to calm the fark down every time they run on guns and ammunition and they should either STFU or give a statement of actual substance when something like Sandy Hook happens. The government wouldn't have to step in so much if these farktards would exercise a little bit of self-control.

It's been WAY less than 40 years since I took contract law, and of course they can, per the terms of the contract. The contract you enter into when ordering an out-of-stock item ALWAYS outlines what will happen if the retailer fails to get you your item -- and that is ALWAYS to refund your money, with no additional compensation due. That's the contract. It's on your receipt. You signed it. Similarly, the contract usually includes a "not for resale" clause, so your ability to profit by reselling the item doesn't come into play.

Moreover, failure to deliver a good or service is incredibly simple case law. There was no fraud, as the retailer DID intend to deliver the good at the time the order was taken. They later changed their mind. (They can do that. They have no obligation at all to tell you why they aren't filling your order.) Again, all you would be entitled to is a refund of your money.

Also, the whole "they had my money" nonsense is either consumer confusion (very common) or someone who enjoys making really large purchases (that they won't receive until some future date) by cash or check. Every major credit card issuer now requires that retailers not charge credit cards for ordered items until they ship the item. They run the card when you place your order, make sure there is enough available credit to cover the purchase, and place a "hold" on the estimated total of the transaction. You sign, get a receipt, etc, but the money doesn't actually go from your credit card company to the retailer until the item ships.

Finally, a retail gun purchase isn't an investment. Although if gun owners all wanted to start paying capital gains taxes on their arsenals, I suppose we could discuss it. In the meantime, though, the rules that govern investment transactions don't apply.
 
2012-12-31 12:07:56 AM

MarkEC: Ed_Severson: I can understand being frustrated that the sale didn't go through, but what in the world could you possibly sue them for?

The sale did go through. The Customer was out the money, and it was deposited in Dick's account. Once a retailer charges your card, they are bound by contract to deliver the goods you just paid for. If they cancel due to arbitrary reasons, you can sue.


The contract for purchasing something goes like this: You give me the item, I'll give you the money. If you cannot give me the item, I'm not going to pay you. If I have already paid you, you owe me the money back. You don't owe me anything else, unless specified by the contract. You could say, "I don't want to sell it anymore, sorry." or "I don't have any left in stock, sorry." and you'd be clear. The only grey area would be "I sold it to someone else earlier for more money." at which point you'd be on the table for negotiating a contract in bad faith, and/or false advertising.

Dick's has done neither. They have supply problems with some guns at the moment, either by choice or by force. Sometimes suppliers drop vendors if the vendor gets all uppity about things because it's too much hassle.

Sure they can. Maybe they shouldn't, but they can.

You could draft a sales contract that had all sorts of razor-sharp penalty clauses, and then they'd be in trouble if they signed it. But obviously that's not what happened here. To the contrary, I bet somewhere on their website there's a whole page of legalese redundantly reasserting all the relevant parts of the UCC that let them hold on to your money for a little while before telling you, at their exclusive option, to piss off and accept a refund.

don't know about Dick's, but the "sporting goods" place near where I work had a bunch of H&K MP5s(9mm), they disappeared off the shelves in short order. Was thinking about grabbing one, but I spent too much on others this season. Going to wait until the fervor is over, then order one.

Curious: Dougie AXP: yea they really can.

JadedRaverLA: and of course they can

Hrist: The contract for purchasing something goes like this:

you guys all seem to have a different opinion than me and make a good case for it/them so i'll bow out.


No worries man. I even broke out my contract law text books just to make sure but JadedRaverLA beat me to it and explained it better than I did (hence why I'm not a lawyer, took contract law for the hell of it).

It really does boil down to what's on the back of the receipt. I even brought up Dick's website and read the legalese. Unfortunately, the legalese on the website is about the use of the website not really the contract agreements between you and Dick's.

I bet though if you order something you'd get a nice list on your receipt. Same thing with the actual receipt. I've bought some things there and know the back of the receipt has a TON of text on it and while I've never read it, I'm sure it covers your rights/responsibilities/terms of the contract.

Sultan Of Herf: StinkyFiddlewinks: You don't need 3 carbines you piece of shiat.

Id bet they are trying to capitalize on the rush. Buy now at the current (and increasing) price, wait a couple months and sell for even higher.

Right now im sitting on a DTI AR-15, bought it earlier in the year, havent had a chance to get to the range with it, so its basically brand new...Im torn between keeping it (as a ban would prevent buying one in the future) and selling it to make a nice profit.


My brother picked me up a new AR-15 out of Texas last week for $749. A guy offered him $1300 for it before I even saw it & he didn't sell it. I would've gladly took the tidy profit instead.

my UCC teacher said that, in a case re a parking lot ticket, that stuff on the back didn't count unless they made you read it. and could substantiate that. hence my comment about the TOS check box.

and i took the UCC course for giggles too. anyway thanks for playing.

I understand it. This is a new age Farklibtard topic, so instead of being good Farkers, and creating posts that made Fark Fark, they're spending their valuable time carrying the puke buckets for the puke spewing DC progressives.

/+1 for you, sir.
