Adjust current MDS Firearms Map?

Looking at cleaning up the MDShooters Firearms Map. I would like your opinion about removing Walmart and/or Dicks.
Looking to add a section for training facilities (HQL, USD, non-range, ??)


I will keep this up until sometime after the New Year (unless the poll is overwhelmingly one sided).

I am not super concerned about Walmart (but I would still pull it) but I definitely would remove Dicks. Their stunts have been worse and it looks like they want out of the business anyway. And there are Walmarts everywhere so it kind of clogs up the list in my opinion anyway as they are not focused on even outdoor sports. They are not hard to find anyway if you want to look for one. But the list could also probably use a sweep for updates. I noticed one shop I have used before missing and another that seems to have closed still up there. But overall I am very happy to have the map up.

If you could, please note those in the MDShooters Firearms Map thread, and I will add or remove as needed.

I voted to remove both.

Dick's because they are dicks.

And Walmart, as they are everywhere, and easy to find.

I would keep Walmart on there, at least the ones that still sell "hunting" ammo and firearms. Mostly because it can be difficult to find out which Walmarts sell firearms and such if you dont know the stores...

I could care less about Dicks stores.

I say remove all corporate stores. Keep the independent stores.

In St. Mary's county, D's and Southern Maryland Firearms are long gone.

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/
