    Hogue announces break up with Dick’s Sporting Goods over gun rights differences
    The popular handgun grip and accessory maker said this week that they are severing ties with the controversial sporting goods big box retailer.

    Hogue said they are distancing themselves from Dick’s Sporting Goods and their Field & Stream affiliate, removing them as an authorized dealer of Hogue products. In a statement, Hogue leadership said the retailer brought it on themselves with their recent decisions to no longer offer standard capacity magazines, restrict the minimum age of rifle buyers to 21, and hiring lobbyists to advance gun control efforts.

    “Hogue has a long-standing tradition of supporting American enthusiasts with top quality firearm accessories and refuses to work with any organization who supports restricting the rights our Founders fought to provide and protect,” said third-generation managing owner, Neil Hogue.

    Nice. I hope more gun manufacturers & companies that make accessories do the same. I have a few friends that are boycotting Wal-Mart as well since they raised the age to 21 to buy long guns, even though NY State law says its 18.
