    I included a link to the BiMart "leave us feedback" page. I only filled out the comment part and put in my name, bimart number, and email, everything else I left blank. I have been a customer at BiMart for 25 plus years. Now that they decided to violate Oregon's discrimination law ORS 659A.403 and their very own discrimination policy, I am done with them. I guess they decided getting a little positive publicity from the anti gun groups was worth loosing decade long relationships with customers. Not a sound business decision in my opinion but who am I to judge. Bi-Mart - Leave Us Feedback

    yeah it's too bad I didn't expect Bi-Mart to follow Dick's and Walmart down this path. I imagine quite a few youngsters 18-20 have bought their first rifles at Bi-Mart over the years. I bought my first three firearms there. A Remington 597, Remington 870 Express and savage 111 in 30-06. I have bought other rifles and shotguns there over the years, lot's of ammo, powder, bullets, hardware, food stuffs/beer, electronics, checked the lucky number every once in a while most of the people in the store were friendly but unless they reverse course I won't be back.

    I used to go to Bimart weekly several times even got RX there.
    I switched my RX a few weeks ago, and have only bought coffee there
    cause it was 4.99 a can. No more big purchases like I have. Some cities though all they have is Bimart
    Winston Oregon is an example.

    Sometimes they have really good sales on candy (like is going on now). Also have fairly decent prices on some electronics (rice maker, coffee bean grinder, etc). "Disposable pants, shirts, socks, shoes/boots" when you now you are going to trash your clothes. They've got other stuff besides what is in the "sporting goods" section.

    But when a box of 50 ct. CCI 22WMR ammo is less than $10, I'm buying it. And I'm buying multiple boxes of it. Yes, even though I don't like the dictation that came from their corporate office(s). Some of the stuff you just can't beat.

    I understand the temptation but it seems Dick's and Walmart get the heavy hand in situations like this while Bi-Mart gets a pass for breaking the exact same law under the exact same circumstances. If people would at least write BiMart and tell them your not going to shop there anymore that might help. But just letting them slide doesn't compute.

    Dear Sir/Madam that is not 2nd Amendment talk. That is the same speech we hear from the Anti-2nd Amendment groups. It leads down a slippery slope. I am sorry you don't trust the 18-20 year old citizens who fight for our country, marry our children, have our grand kids, sign our contracts, etc. to shop at Oregon stores and get the same treatment protected by Oregon law for all other customers 18 and up. I am truly disheartened by your lack of trust in them.

    Rrrrrright.......Bi-Mart cares about what I think.

    Just like how an Elected Democrat cares about preserving the 2nd A. and my AR15.

    Only that..........with one........lying, just comes naturally.

    Have you met the majority of 18-20 year old Kids these days?


    Even well regarded psychologists agree they are not the same as when almost all of us grew up.

    Yes, there are exceptions and they are outstanding - this includes those serving our country.

    There is a reason most don't leave the home till their 30's now though.



    Now, I don't agree with the restriction but can see the CYA mentality and protection from civil suits that most likely brought it on.





    For me, Bi-Mart gets a pass because they are a locally owned PNW company and not a huge corporation.


    That and they often have ammo well below what I can purchase at other places. Being in a financial slump for some years now gives me little option even if I did want to boycott the place.



    I realize this is not in line with some people's situation or opinion but the question was asked so I thought I'd toss my opinion into the ring.

    I think it depends on how many people write in. If they got hundreds of complaints and saw sales dropping at the firearms counters, along with lawsuits, a bunch of BOLI complaints and a few boycott protest sprinkled in for good measure they might rethink the decision. I am starting to think that a bunch of supposed "2nd Amendment Supporters" don't give a bubblegum about the 18-20 crowd. It's sad!

    This is just that part about politics that truly sucks.

    It's as if @Goosebrown killed a baby seal.

    Is he not a gun owner? Is he not entitled to an opinion?

    I too agree that there is nothing wrong with upping the age to 21 for all things. Perhaps even 26. If a young adult thinks he is to immature and irresponsible to get off his parents insurance and out of their house. They shouldn't be able to do lots of things.

    Vote, purchase alcohol, purchase marijuana, drive, join the military, etc.

    I do find it ironic the political left think that lowering the voting agree to 16 is a good thing!

    Thanks for expressing your opinion but I can't agree with it. I have just recently communicated with a Sophomore at Tigard High School. He recently lead the 2nd Amendment Walkout and that "kid" has 100x more common sense in his brain than the SJW anti-gun people arguing for abolishing the 2nd Amendment. I am not sure what is in the water in your area but the 18-20 crowd that I have met including my son are plenty responsible enough to buy a rifle from Bi-mart. And let's not forget the fact that Bimart is breaking the law ORS 659A.403. If BiMart is worried about liability damages then they could quit selling guns and ammo in their Oregon stores. That reduces liability and eliminates the problem of breaking Oregon law. Walmart, Dick's. Bimart should all do that or revert back to the legal policy and start selling long guns to the 18-20 crowd again.

    Of course he is entitled to his opinion and so are the anti-2a people. It is very disturbing that we are discussing this between supposed 2nd Amendment supporters. 26 years old to buy a gun, are you serious? I am very very troubled by this attitude. It doesn't give me warm and fuzzy feelings about where we are headed on gun rights if our very own supporters are going to start handing over our rights willingly. And sorry to all you baby seal lovers but baby seals aren't as important as our 2A rights.

    My son, at 18 years old, joined the US Marine Corps. Yet, he is too young to buy his own rifle ammo or a rifle from B-Mart?

    IMHO.....
    That, is Un-American of Bi-Mart (and Dick's and Freddy's, etc..... with their private in store policy).

    I 100% agree with you and please tell your son that I appreciate his service and for defending the very rights that some people are willing to take from him
