Investing in Guns: Ruger Recap

It has been over a year since we first bought into Ruger and things are looking up with their latest factory acquisition. Overall the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up, but you can see in the photo below the disparate upside for Ruger. The dividend for RGR is now at around 5% for the year adding more fuel to the fire for an overall great performance. We don't see what the future holds, however given the limited options to publicly invest in firearms manufacturers, Ruger appears to be a consistent performer in terms of new product mix and providing quality for the niche they fill.
