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.

Good. Fuck 'em.
Link Posted: 1/20/2013 4:20:03 PM EDT
Wow, that is a lot of outfits not attending.
Link Posted: 1/20/2013 4:21:53 PM EDT
Anyone have a list of sponsors remaining that we can put a little pressure on?

Gonna be able to swing a pissed off alley cat and not hit anyone in the aisles!

I really don't even think that is the complete list either. They have already added more since they originally posted this. Seems to be growing by the minute. haha fuckers!

I sent a message to Cabela's letting them know how glad I was they were pulling support

It would be funny if they had no vendors to show up wouldn't it

Don't shit where you eat is what I was always told.

I love it when aplan comes together.

I know I'll never go there again. I'm glad they are losing sponsors.

Fukem!

They're also standing up for their industry; wise move all around and I salute them for it.

Zumbo the bastards at Reed Exhibitions.

Getting a lot of FB hate on their page. One guy mentions something about the show being canceled but I can't find any information backing that up.

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.
Link Posted: 1/20/2013 4:35:59 PM EDT
Hell yes!

I'm not far from the expo center and wasn't going to go. Glad to see that these companies are taking a stand.
Link Posted: 1/20/2013 4:36:11 PM EDT
This is....... GREAT.

Let's keep up the pressure.
Link Posted: 1/20/2013 4:37:49 PM EDT
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!

Very glad to see that list. I hope it grows.

This is great to see, we need to hang together so that we don't end up hanging alone.

I made an optic purchase and opened a club card with them today due to their stance.

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.

Same.

I like Cabela's anyway so giving them my business is a no-brainer.

Demonstration of politics that are out of alignment with your base can have consequences.
I love it when capitalism runs its course.

Good to see LONG list of companies that have pulled out.
Link Posted: 1/20/2013 5:00:54 PM EDT
Sweet! Cabelas and Lancaster Archery Supply are supporting our rights! I buy a lot from those two companies and I am glad that I will be able to continue to do so.

Yep, when an archery business pulls out they are taking a hit for us.
Link Posted: 1/20/2013 5:04:56 PM EDT
That's great to see.

Don't really know any of those companies listed except Cabelas and that one alone has got to really sting. Good for them.
Link Posted: 1/20/2013 5:05:31 PM EDT
I am sure Tenn would be glad to have that show here. Someone needs to step up and sponser it in a new place.
