Part Time Workers Celebrate The Recovery With Soaring Gun Purchases

Tyler Durden's picture

Following continued strength in earnings (and analyst upgrades), Smith & Wesson is up 23% this morning (near three year highs). It seems all those freshly printed temporary workers are spending their hard-earned minimum wage on 'defense' instead of iPads.


*SMITH & WESSON 3Q EPS CONT OPS 8C, EST. 4C                :SWHC


Earnings growth has been tremendous since the lows, as analysts upgrade expectations rapidly...

19 in clip better than six in cylinder... unless of course you're talking concealed carry...

I want to buy a gun but I think gold is a better investment.  Does anyone make a solid gold revolver? Maybe a 22 Karat Colt?

Try Desert Eagle - Gold plated anyways...

Are Romanian AKs also the reason for the widening trade deficit and spike in imports ?

Those Romanian AKs work.No Q Tips needed.

Also, they have both rifle and pistol variants available in .223, if you like to throw homegrown lead.
stock up, bitchez.

Yes but they are about to go on a CRASH diet and get a CRASH course in economics.

That should help.

Sorry about that, I didn't realize she was your wife.

Guns are easy, plentiful and pretty reliable, Ammunition is an expendable item.  You need a helluva lot more than 5 boxes of ammo on your shelf.  Think Logistics.  Think lots of ammunition.  If you have a couple guns, spend your money on ammo...lots of it.

Shooting our way to recovery. We shall be "lead" into a recovery as we "slug" it out. The fed is using a "shotgun" approach as they cannot find the magic "bullet".

I'm doing my part to bail out Europe by buying Glocks.

Me 2. Got to give a hand to the land of my ancestors.

RobD's picture

US sold Glocks are assembled in Georgia I believe so we skim a little off the top before Herr Glock gets his cut. I have three glocks with two more in the immediate family. I just wish Herr Glock would make a carbine, I would buy one in 10mm in a heartbeat. Closest thing I have found is Kel-tech makes a 40s&w and 9mm carbine that takes glock mags. I have the .40 version, they call it the sub-2000 and it is a ugly little sucker but shoots real nice for the price($350).

The Big Ching-aso's picture



The gun industry is booming.    That's pretty punny.

Zymurguy's picture

Got the 9mm ver. myself... kicks like a fooking mule it does but surprisingly accurate.

xela2200's picture

I have a 9mm gen 4. If the gun is not straight when I am firing, it will through an empty casing into my forehead. I froze the first time that happened. There is nothing like practice to figure things out before the real thing.

I had to order the gun online as the police bought all the ones in the local market. I live in Miami. Enjoy your retirement.

These ain't cheap:

There are a number of mfg's out there depending on model of Glock you have. Seems to be catching on. Shot a Glock .40 recently and really liked it but I'm stocked for 9mm...

Jam Akin's picture

Got my Sub2k because of its folding feature.  It is fun to shoot but too unreliable to depend on in a real bad situation.  You get what you pay for.

Funny, but I wish I had thought of it.

I also wish you would stop doing that to sheep.

I'll be adding to this number next week after completing my concealed carry permit.

xela2200's picture

Is it a good idea to do that? Wouldn't that flag you as a gun owner?


SheepDog-One's picture

Does it really make any difference at all? 

SteveGennisonBallWasher's picture

Like SheepDog says, what the fuck does it matter?  I know that law enforcement stands behind permit holders rather than just owners.

xela2200's picture

Here in Florida my gunbroker told me that they are the only ones that keep a record of the gun. However, the conceal weapon permit is a state thing or am I wrong?
