Do you believe that while SW was buying fence companies and blowing through $150,000,000 of investor value, other holding companies like freedom were accumulating actual ammo and firearm assets. What dummies.
And SW just completed the failed fence company transaction by buying back $100,000,000 of shares they issued for the failed acquisition.
If the board had any sense of fiduciary responsibility they would suffer from intense guilt and either do Hara Kiri or throw themselves off a tall building. They really should all be sued and marched out of the building.

In response to the shooting at Arapahoe High School in Colorado, Peter J. Kuehlen has unearthed two screenshots of 'security consultants' conducting active shooter response drills in the same location -- and on the same day, no less - of the school shooting at in Colorado. Peter noted, "On the anniversary of Sandy Hook, they are conducting a Lone Wolf Active Shooter Drill at the exact same location that they claimed yesterday three people lost their lives. Are you kidding me??? They are even telling you black on white. In your face now! Obvious drill is obvious."
Dag on. Let it go. It's done and over with. Golden is a moron. Nobody denies that. The fence debacle was a bone head move and it's over with. As they continue the buy backs, shareholders will be repaid. Major emphasis on "shareholders" aka "longs", not day traders that got burned years ago. Life's a garden brother...dig it!
I picked up a couple of Garrison grip extensions for the .380.... Two spare mags are in the mail to me as we speak with the Talon wallet holster. So if you get a .380 and can't find an extra mag, Talon has authentic S&W mags for that gun right now...$25...you can google it up to see what the grip extension looks like. It's really a replacement floor plate on the mag and gives you an extra 1.25 inches of grip allowing a full 4 finger grip to the gun.
Bought them on amazon. They are very inexpensive. But nice quality. Since I haven't shot either I really can't provide any useful advice for your wife. I did notice the slide to be a bit stiff on the Shield but changed my grip on the slide and it made a world of difference. I always used a rear "thumb & forefinger" support hand grip on pistol slides. Only making contact with the rear slide serrations. I plan to use the "overhand" method now. This is where your support hand thumb is pointing at your body instead of toward the muzzle. It allows the maximum amount of grip of the slide. My wife had no problem racking the slide this way. I find it much more comfortable myself. There is one other option. If you prefer the thumb forward method ( it does keep the barrel pointed down range) , move your support hand forward on the slide ... Position your thumb over the ejection port allowing a full hand grip of the slide. There is no pinching involved since the hand is clear when the slide racks forward. You might find this method useful as well. The triggers on the guns are completely different. The Bodyguard is a long double action pull much like a revolver. The Shield is a striker fired action which has a shorter pull more like a single action pistol. Each has its pros and cons. The Bodyguard (at 12 oz)wins hands down for ease of carry and concealment. The Shield (at 19 oz) wins hand down for stopping power and shorter trigger pull. This is NOT a review of them as I haven't fired either yet...
I just let my wife handle both guns again. Today her first attempt at racking the Shield required a second attempt. She did the best today with the supporting hand thumb forward over the ejection port...I let her manipulate the gun for a while until she could rack it successfully with each attempt. Then I handed her the Bodyguard. She racked it like a piece of cake. She looked at me and said, "I want this one... you use the BIG one".. I guess everything is relative. So I would conclude from just a "handling and ergonomics" point of view, the Bodyguard MIGHT be a consideration for your wife..Btw.. My wife is a tough little 5'4" 128 lb 62 yr old. Isn't it wonderful that we have come to a point where wives are now a motivating force behind a handgun purchase. lol
I promised some sales estimates, so I thought to look at quarterly NICs (NSSF adjusted) and compare to total revenues....
Revs per NIC-----$44.5795
Revs per NIC----- $53.9583
7/31/2013 $171.00 Milion
Revs per nic----- $63.3099
Interpretation of the above - SWHCs strongest quarter in terms of share. Improving SHARE!
Revs per nic ---$34.9754
Revs per NIC----------- $43.1051
Revs per NIC------- $43.9987
INterpreatation of the above - This is the hunting quarter - smith has nothing to do with hunting. They need to diversify
Revs per NIC---- $28.5756
1/31/2013----$136.2 0 million
Revs per NIC ----- $24.5273
1/31/2014------- $140.0 million
Calculated Rev per NIC $29.2386
My est of NICS ------4,788
Interp - SWHC Grabbing Share. I trimmed NICs down by 15% from last year. Note also that the 1/31/13 quarter was low in Rev per NIC - SWHC had not yet geared up and could not supply the Sandy hook onslaught, so their share FELL. They could not produce as much as all other players.
REvs Per NIC-----------$38.35
Revs per NIC----------$41.1247
Calc Revs per nic-- $44.65
EST NICS------------ 3,800
iNTERP - nICS fall but SWHC gets more share.... SWHC picking up share

Thanks - I think my 1/31/14 estimate of NICS is high - MAYBE. NICS were held back in the prior year quarter due to supply.... and perhaps its right... BUT lets use 4200 NICS, AND use the company estimate for revenues of $140 million:
1/31/2014------- $140.0 million
Calculated Rev per NIC $33.33
My est of NICS ------4,200
So that shows rev per NIC increasing.... SWHC is probably displacing GLOCK and the second tier brands that filled the supply holes in the previous quarter when sandy hook hit the fan. One thing is obvious from all this - SWHC is losing out on the hunting segment in the months where hunting dominates the gun market, ie the Aug, Sep, Oct quarter. its just obvious. That answer to that is not to purchase some second tier line, like Thompson - too bad FG is keeping all their brands.
The second thing that is obvious is that swhcs supply mentality and ability needs to change. Debney is addressing that with the adoption of the SAP system, which runs on projected demand (or at least thats how I understand it).
OH .... and by the way. I am using mangements revenue numbers for QE 1/14 and 4/14 which look increasingly conservative.
All this points to one thing: the shorts can sing all they want about declining NICS, but they also have to remember that SWHC is gaining share...
PS: This makes SWHC an even more tempting takeover target.. eating share in a growing segment, but unable to grow in the areas it needs to. Looking back, that move to diversify into the non-gun space was a massive lapse in judgment, and I question whether the board has the balls to be loyal to the industry. While the AR platform is a growing segment, they constructively ignored hunting - - its sort of a passive aggressive management style, which is usually destructive.
Agree with your comments. Also keep in mind we will see expansion in capacity for the M&P with the retool going on in other plants. This should help fill the channel and keep up with demand. Which they haven't been able to do yet. I see this happening within the next month or so and those numbers won't be reflected into the next quarter report. Probably 4thQ which will help to beat yearly estimate.
Snowing out...slick roads ....none the less...The parking lot looked Lambeau during a playoff game.....hard to find a spot...gun dept very active.....lent creedance to the idea that gun purchases are associated with "Christmas presents" now more than in years past....saw quite a few guys with their gals checking out a pistol for her....this women pistol thing is just getting going I believe....it's becoming socially acceptible now for women to carry....
Yes - the new SAP system went into sort of a reset - we will see what happens. ALSO the manufacturing got big boost with some real high tech high volume machinery.... hopefully its flexible and can work on multiple product lines.
This not playing in the hunting world is ####$%$###### to say the least.
Maybe they should grab an AR 15 and turn it into a hunting rifle. (ps - its more than camo thing). Here is my ideal AR, set up for white-tails:
-Caliber 308, 270 wsm, 762x39
-Extended fore-end so I can rest it on my hunting stand rails.
-Smooth fore-end and no jagged edges, so I can walk in the woods,
-Rails for scope, maybe a quick change to iron sights, maybe a solid tip-off system, (better than the old weavers).
-A nice set of iron sights - I like the peep sights on the current guns,
-usable sling system that makes sense,
-shorter barrel, carbine like,
-maybe make a model with some wood on it,
-10 round mag, no interference with bipod,
-accesorizable for bi pod,
-micro adjustable stock. Dont need a 5 position butt stock to F up your eye relief,
-??? Mke it look more traditional, and not like I am looking for VC.
I seem to recall Debney making a point of mentioning "new inovative" products in the polymer frame catagory...reading between the lines it seemed to me like it was a little teaser about the upcoming trade show.....the announcement of a new conceal carry pistol along the lines of a Shield or Bodyguard should cause some new excitement...we know new products will be introduced..it is likely they will cause a new spurt in sales.....this is the catagory with the largest margins.....they question is just when.....
I don't want a camo rifle. I don't need a cam o rifle for deer hunting. Perhaps they should make a blaze orange shotgun for turkey hunting. The AR makers lost their heads when they thought they could convert and AR into a hunting rifle by painting leaves and pinecones on it.
NO. if you want people to use an AR for hunting, you need to bridge between a traditional hunting rifle and the M16. The AR is a great deer platform, its just not accepted as such, all because of cosmetics and minor design requirements.
