The diamond for SMF was in the wrong place and the address went to the kennel, however, in google maps when you zoom in on that area you can see a place called Dynamic Weaponry off Fairgrounds Rd. I had not heard of them before. https://www.dynamicweaponry.com/

Also, F4 Defense is supposedly on 21726 Great Mills, Rd.
Lexington Park, Maryland but that appears to be the building for JWE Electric. Not sure where they are located for real: https://www.f4defense.com/

Glad to see mine isn't the only consumer world in which Malwart and Dicks no longer exist. I put some other correction suggestions in the other thread.

Put every place that sells firearms or ammo on it and let people shop with their own conscience. I hate Walmart for lots of reasons that have nothing to do with their recent capitulation. Dicks was a rip-off before they turned anti. If a newbie feels comfortable at Dicks since they buy their UA underwear there and the close proximity to firearms and ammo gets them to look into or purchase something that’s a win for us all. They’ll learn the rest on their own. Or not.

I suggest you have Walmart and Dicks on the map.

While there is plenty of reasons to not patronize them there may be some instances where it would be good to know where the stores are.
For example sometimes a store will price something below cost to attract customers who will then spend more on other items in the store that have a greater profit for the store. The underpriced item is called a “loss leader” and Walmart has been known to operate using this model

I might be tempted to buy a shotgun from one of these stores if I knew that they paid more for the gun than I paid them. I would buy nothing else.

One of the biggest reasons in favor of removing those 2 retailers, would be to de-clutter the map. I will still shop at WM (untill they ban all carry). The only thing I bought from the other, were socks (I can get them elsewhere).
It should be well enough known that both still sell ammo, firearms, and hunting supplies without getting free "advertising".
Just my 2 cents.

I agree with removing chain stores. Everyone who wants to go to Dicks or WalMart can find them.

It can be hard to track down small shops, to even know they exist.

It looks like the chain stores could be put in their own group. This group then could be turned off at will.
