The list is growing rapidly of companies that are pulling out and boycotting the Eastern Sport & Outdoor Show. For some reason I don't think they pictured this when they came up with their idiotic decision.

Being a fellow PA person, I am really happy to see some of the bigger local places boycotting.

I frequent Cabelas and Keystone Country Store and Lancaster Archery a good bit - so I am glad to see them stepping back.

Apparently this was the first company to pull out of that show. They are now hosting an AR giveaway. If I read the rules correctly I believe you need to purchase something from any of the vendors that pulled out of the show, during the week the show is going on, and your receipt will be your entry in to the giveaway.

Those arn't just firearm specific retailers with something to lose.

Many of those are hunting specific businesses who are pulling out purely on principle.

We need to support these folks for their sacrifice.

I am surprised too. I looked at the list and expected maybe a half a dozen companies... WOW! That is one long list! I think its great!
I am sure it is no small sacrifice for those companies. This is their livelihood. It is great to see them put principle before profit.
Need to remember these folks and give them our future business!

Had a FB discussion with some guys from "Crossover camo". They posted about going to the show and lost tons of "likes". Well they pulled there comments and gave a big speech about knowing what was going on with the actions of the expo. Then said they simply sell camo, not firearms. Then apologized for upsetting anyone. I guess they went on to setup at the show, but lost me as a customer. Really hated it because they have a nice product and are a Christian-based family run buisness.
