    And our stocks will go high
    • ~ Smith & Wesson Holding Corporation (SWHC)
    • ~ Sturm, Ruger & Co. ( RGR)
    • ~ Vista Outdoors Inc. ( VSTO)
    • ~ Olin Corp. ( OLN)
    Smith & Wesson and Sturm Ruger & Co, the two biggest US firearms manufacturers on the stock market, saw their share prices increase by 6.87 percent 8.50 percent, respectively, by the time the markets closed at 4 pm on Monday.
    Smith & Wesson sold a record $627 million worth of firearms last year. In the most recent quarter, sales soared by 61.5 percent, a rise CEO James Debney attributed to a “long-term trend toward personal protection.”

    And folks here we go again.,..........

    Similar spikes in gun company stocks were seen after a terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California and a shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon.

    The Sunday shooting prompted President Barack Obama to give a speech in which he reiterated his call for stricter regulations on firearms.

    Didn't think about it. Should've bought the stock first thing Monday. Could've used the money to purchase ammunition before Hilary taxes it at 250% after January.

    I have a box of 500 22lr thunderbolts for 175.00 free shipping ;)

    I bought a bucket of ammo for 65.00 on sale three weeks ago same place is now selling at 125.00 when I looked yesterday morning looks like now they are outta stock. Bought some 7.62x39 two weeks ago at another place it went up 30.00 .
    I drove to a few shops yesterday prices are up, guy on AL selling a sks why yes its in good condition 475.00
    I bought a whole pile last panic was over of AK-47 mags still in shipping box paid after the panic 11.99 same place today is selling them 21.00 :)
    This could mean another two years waiting for a drop again. And 22lr was just hitting normal access for people.
    I hate low 22lr the most, because kids use this as an entry level. Last year Christmas I gave away 22lr to families who needed it for kids presents. I may end up doing that again this year if it stays low.
    Gees what a mess.
