Explanation

Cost of Goods Sold is directly linked to profitability of the company through Gross Margin.

Smith & Wesson Holding Corp's Gross Margin for the six months ended in Oct. 2016 is calculated as:

A company that has a moat can usually maintain or even expand their Gross Margin. A company can increase its Gross Margin in two ways. It can increase the prices of the goods it sells and keeps its Cost of Goods Sold unchanged. Or it can keep the sales price unchanged and squeeze its suppliers to reduce the Cost of Goods Sold. Warren Buffett believes businesses with the power to raise prices have moats.
