  •  Manufacturers of hunting weapons aren't doing (1+ / 0-)

    well enough to please Wall Street.  That's not exactly the same thing as not doing well.  Some of them make nice steady most profits, but Wall Street wants massive growth.

    Even if hunting was simply stable, good quality firearms last a long, long time if well cared for.  There are so many excellent weapons for sale second hand that even with 30 million+ hunters and who knows how many other recreational shooters, there just isn't that much market.

    I own three rifles.  One is 80 years old, and was a gift.  One is about 68 year old, and I got it cheap through the Civilian Marksmanship Program 15 years ago.  The third is brand new.

    I hunt and I shoot and I have done for 20 years.  In that time, I've spent nearly as much on safes and locking hard cases as I have on firearms.
