    this seems stupid and short sighted considering FIREARMS manufacturers are the only business thats booming in the U.S. right now.

    Sell when sales and profits are high... sounds like a great business decision.

    They only had a 2.4 % share in Bushmaster. Did I read this correctly? Or was that what the Teachers Union had:confused: invested?

    Yeah, you can really respect those school teachers in Kolifornia. Not long ago I saw video of them demonstrating with the American Communist Party among them and one of them dropped their flag and it was picked up by a teacher who waived it around zealously. What's left to say? Cerberus is making themselves look like money grubbing scared fools and are giving in to blackmail. I'd buy Bushmaster in a NY minute. The good thing is the school teachers will lose money on the deal.

    The Liberals will be into something else in time. ABC News just did a report on the millions of new gun owners. People who never owned firearms are buying guns of all types. These outfits like Dicks, CTD Etc. and a few DA politicans are going to be damn sorry. Gun owners and NRA members never forget. We will be waiting for you guys down on the corner.:eek:

    This is getting nasty. Sturm Ruger stock is down $15 in about a week from $45 to $30 and Smith & Wesson is also down. At this point if will be interesting to see how much of a bath the hedge fund is willing to take to sell.

    Like the pressure being put on Dick's and CTD, this is getting to be a rock rolling downhill. A buisiness rarely makes that kind of a decision, particulary on something that is selling strongly, without some kind of immense pressure from somewhere. A CEO could jeopardize his job by making this kind of decision without considering consequences. This had to be investor driven also.

    Companies losing 1/3 of their value in a week will shake up investors and lenders, and potentially threaten the amount of cash that the company has to do business with. If this continues, Sturm Ruger could have some drastic decisions and actions to take.

    Now is the time to buy S&W and Ruger stocks. One or two days down in a strong market is an open door. NRA Membership is growing by 8,000 per day and the Gallop Polls out today show Americans not in favor of more gun control. Firearms sales are breaking all records.:)

    Back in the 1960s the big gun dealers were Sears, JCP, Kliens and wards. They bailed after the JFK murder. Have you ever missed them? No we got Midway, Cabelas, Midsouth etc. much more shooter friendly.

    Don't throw your rifle down and run this is not the French Army.:D

    Gun owners would be doing more by buying stock in firearms companies then hoarding large cap mags. I bought $5,000 dollars worth of Arms company stocks today. That was taken from the CTU.:D

    Totally agree here. If you have the money then buy up gun stocks, especially the ones that the Freedom Group/Cerberus is selling. Maybe then we could straighten out the problems with their products;).
