9 year old accidentally shoots range instructor with UZI . Guns are going nowhere. They are like death and taxes, a sure thing.

Like Cisco in the late 1990's guns - like routers - will thrive for years to come. The stock prices however will not thrive.

What drives the sale of guns in America? Are gun collectors the driving force here?

I prefer RGR due to thier Balance Sheet. No debt and have rewarded shareholders with a dividend. Plus they authorized share buybacks. Thier dividend policy is interesting as well. They pay based on earnings and not a locked down number each quarter/year. This gives them the flexibiilty that other dividend payors do not have. The shareholder understand (or at least should understand) that the dividend could fluctuate.

Gun sales will continue to grow, just not linerarly as the author points out. The company has a balance sheet and a brand that makes them one with staying power. This isn't a home run stock, but it is a long term hold.

Disclosure: Long RGR
