I have two off duty police officers in my school every day. We talk guns a lot. It used to be all Glock all the time. Now they are M&P fans all the way. I suspect that this is happening at other police departments.
Unfortunately, SWHC is losing sales by not having a competitor to the pocket carry Ruger LC9. I hope that they introduce one soon as IIIorac suggests. Finally, if SWHC locked in an ammo supplier that assures that you can buy 500 rounds at decent prices when you buy a product, they would blow up the gun stores. Or sell the gun like xbox, with 500 rounds included.
Nothing better than to have a stock I own consider "strategic alternatives"! I'm guessing the auto parts gets sold, the restaurants bundled and spun off. The question is what multiple will be applied to the core financial services business.
