RGR and SWHC are known for making guns....what they really make is CASH...not accounting gimmicked up earnings... They make CASH....and that's what LBO artists look for. These companies can pay for the debt service and still return tons of cash to the owners. Gun owners BUY guns... The more guns are sold, the bigger the market for additional gun sales become. People who know nothing about guns think a person buys one gun and IT lives on after they die. Truth is, once you buy a gun, you'll buy more of them. Different calibers... For different purposes. They tend to get more sophisticated and expensive as time goes by....and yes there is a little "lust" of owning a finely made gun, just as some lust over exotic sports cars, watches, bicycles and other precisely made machines. Now many are looking at them as a "store of wealth". A collectible. We have not even begun to hit a peak in gun sales yet. We might be in the the 3rd inning. Both RGR and SWHC will be taken private and the parties doing so will make a mint doing it. I just hope we get paid a fair price when they do it.
