    We've heard from Freedom Group, Dick's, and others about giving up on modern sporting rifles. What's bothering me is how come we haven't heard from FN, Colt, Sig, Ruger, Savage, Glock, and so many more. You would think they would be fighting tooth and nail for the biggest customer base they have in the world? Does this bother anyone else?:confused:

    FN, Colt, and Glocks biggest base is military sales.
    Public Companies S&W and Ruger saw their stock values tumble and it also triggered a sell off when some pension groups learned they were invested in same.
    Now is not the time for any of them to say anything.

    Sounds like a good time to buy stock in Ruger and others.

    They can all sell directly and you can take delivery / posession at your locaL ffl.

    Manufacturers gain a bit more profit and your local Mom & Pop stays in business.

    win / win

    Maybe we can look at S&W's contributions to fighting gun control instead?

    I have traded Ruger (NYSE: RGR) and S&W (Nasdaq: SWHC) before and recently bought back SWHC.
