    Another 10000 sh "automatic" sale by board member on the 14 th.

    Isabelle Wadecki...here's her credentials. I'm wondering what she's bringing to the table......Ms. I. Marie Wadecki is an Independent Director of Smith & Wesson Holding Corporation. Ms. Wadecki served as the Corporate Budget Director of the McLaren Health Care Corporation, a Michigan-based $3.5 billion eight-hospital health care system, from January 2001 until her retirement in September 2007. Ms. Wadecki was employed by McLaren for more than 30 years, holding positions of increasing responsibility. In November 2008, Ms. Wadecki was appointed to the McLaren Flint Medical Center’s Foundation Board of Trustees. Since October 2012, Ms. Wadecki has served as a member of the board of directors, Chairperson of the Nominations and Corporate Governance Committee, and a member of the Audit Committee of Infinity Resources Holdings Corp., an environmental solutions company that serves as a single-service provider of recycling and environment-related programs, services, and information. Ms. Wadecki is a member of the National Association of Corporate Directors, the American College of Healthcare Executives, Women Business Leaders of the U.S. Healthcare Industry Foundation, and Women Corporate Directors. Ms. Wadecki is recognized as a Board Leadership Fellow by the National Association of Corporate Directors, which is an organization devoted to advancing exemplary board leadership by providing support and educational opportunities to directors and boards. We believe Ms. Wadecki’s long employment history with a major health care organization, her financial background, and her corporate governance expertise provide the requisite qualifications, skills, perspectives, and experience that make her well qualified to serve on our Board of Directors.

    • What an amazing resume, or as the snooty bluebloods say, "curriculum vitae". All of that and she still rubberstamped the acquisition of a fence company that failed just moments after they drove it off the lot. The stock issued for that sham transaction was only recently repurchased using all of the cash profits recently generated, plus some new debt. She should be fired, along with the other co-conspirators on the board of directors. Take a knee, wench, and the kingdom will rise.

      • You must have awakened on the wrong side of the bed, or maybe the couch.

        Hey you are absolutely right, but why such a grouch? That is one fine resume built on political divisiveness. Anyhow, the skill set of dear isabella is not a good match for a small cap manufacturng consumer goods companies. It just isn't. A good board member would be one with mfg experience, retail marketing and distribution, and small cap finance.

        Being a board member on a $3.5billion healthcare company is the wrong experience. Most of the large company directors are given those posts as political payback or cronyism. No true gritty skills or experience.

        Anyways a 10,000 share sale will allow her to pay taxes this year and buy a new bmw or mercedes to park next to all the other 'bluebloods' at the country club.
