This is how a company commits suicide.

It was a dealRussell Kellner of Flower Mound says was too good to pass up.

“It was a heck of a deal.”

Last month, on Black Friday, he says he and his wife bought three Troy Defense Carbine Semi-Automatic Rifles from Dick’s Sporting Goods.

Kellner says the store advertised them for $799 each, a $300 dollar discount.

They got two of them, then received this letter from Dick’s on Christmas Eve, telling customers, it’s not fulfilling any more orders.

Dick’s is telling customers it will give them a full refund.

It also sent Kellner a $100 gift card for the inconvenience.

Now there’s talk of a class action lawsuit against Dick’s, and Troy, the manufacturer of that rifle, has to find another retailer. It had an exclusive deal with Dick’s to sell that rifle and says it poured millions of its own dollars into the deal.
