    Warren Kanders to Acquire Safariland

    My thought is not much. BD is recreational sports and this is more in the quasi-military angle. I'd be treading carefully in that direction as I think, post-election, there will be some effort to reel in the acquisition of military-style equipment by general consumers.

    My actual feeling for BDE is I hope the interest in these active sports has remained high despite economic hardship. It probably is a good time to acquire young companies with bright prospects that are not flourishing as well as they might in a more robust environment. When the bad music finally dies down, these small ventures can thrive.
