Well they can kiss my @$$, not that I would buy a gun from them anyway. Never been a big fan of box stores, I have a really good local gun shop that I deal with.

That's disappointing. When I bought mine, I looked at what they had, but found a much better deal at Atwoods.

Probably hiding them back in the stockroom. Keeping them under wraps for 5 months in hopes they can double the price come November.

I have always liked academy but they shouldnt have caved so soon on selling ar15s.just shows weakness on there part especially being a outdoor store. And u know there will be a mad scramble to get em like after the last shooting. When will people learn that people kill people. Not giving up my ar,s to anyone.

KKR, a New York investment firm, bought Academy a few years so it has not been a Texas-owned company for awhile.

I have heard you can still buy one. They just don't have them on display.

Selling so fast that they can't keep them on the shelf?
