Dick’s Sporting Goods sued by ammo-supplier for breach of contract

Virtue-signaling by Dick’s Sporting Goods has a cost that goes beyond alienating gun-owners and Second Amendment-supporters.  When the national store announced at the end of February this year that it would no longer sell assault-style firearms and high-capacity magazines, nor sell any guns to people younger than 21, it left some of its suppliers in the lurch.  One of them, ammunition-maker BBM, which supplied house-brand ammunition to the company, has sued.

Chris Egger of reports:

Citing breach of contract and fraud, Nevada-based Battle Born Munitions filed suit in federal court against Dick’s Sporting Goods this week.

At the root of the filing is what BBM says was the failure by Dick’s to hold up their end of a contract for the ammo distributor to supply the retailer with Field & Stream-branded ammo for resale in their stores.  The delay by the big box sporting goods outlet, argues the filing, resulted in BBM losing out on a multi-million dollar contract to supply helicopters to an overseas U.S. ally.
