Go over to a financial site and check out the stock prices for both Ruger (RGR) and S&W (SWHC) look at their 52 week performance. Neither company is
taking new orders because existing orders are using almost their entire production capacity. That is the type of problem a business likes to have. If
the demand keeps up then they will have to add production capacity which means jobs for someone. That's a good thing.
Now the reason for the demand for firearms is not necessarily a good thing. I think Obama has been the best thing to happen to the US gun industry in
my lifetime. They should really honor him for it, present some type of award or something.
And that is before the Treyvon situation. I don't know enough about the events that night to have an opinion as to whether Zimmerman was justified or
not, and I take anything the MSM says with a huge dose of skepticism. But, the racial agitprops are out in force on this. Throw in a GOP convention in
the same state as the case is happening in at around the time that whatever state attorney investigation finds or grand jury deliberations and you've
got a spark that this group of agitprops including the President himself are spreading as much gas as possible around an area they know there is going
to be a spark.
Anecdotally, I actually know a couple of people who are taking money they were going to spend somewhere else (like on a vacation) and buying guns. No
one I know or talk too seems to believe the lies fed daily about the economy improving anymore, we all feel like we are being sodomized at the gas
tank, and the approved choices for President are so bad that I'm not really sure I care anymore.
Anyway congrats to Ruger on some outstanding sales.
