I found this while checking out our content system for a problem: [url]http://www.cnn.com/2001/BUSINESS/05/14/smith/[/url] (the story actually lives on the euroedition site) Apparently we cut their sales in HALF. Of course this article doesn't mention why their sales declined so badly, but it shouldn't be that big of a mystery.

I hope the new American owners will begin to set things right.

Maybe someone knows something about this "Saf-T-Hammer" company.

I dunno, this sounds fishy. From "Corporate Profile" on www.saf-t-hammer.com "... Since its inception, Saf-T-Hammer Corporation has been developing proprietary gun safety devices and is uniquely positioned to meet the increased public and legislative demand for such devices. Saf-T-Hammer™ products are designed to be compatible with the vast majority of the 230 million firearms owned in America. An expansion and diversification of the company's line of products is planned for the coming years. The company's current line of products includes: Saf-T-Trigger™, VersaVault, and Maximum Security Cable Lock. ..." Sounds like they might be the kind of company that wants to profit from mandatory gun lock legislation, etc.

I also feel like noting that their site looks just like every Black & Decker electric screwdriver that I've ever owned. [;)]

Sounds almost like an anti-gun company out to make trigger locks to "make guns safer" and profit off it too. Isn't this the company that sponsored the MMM last year or some other anti-gun movement?

May prove to be WORSE than S&W's current owners.. Oh well.. I can't think of a respected arms related company that would buy S&W anyway after that damn agreement.

Hey General Ourumov! Aren't you the guy from Goldeneye? I think my Dewalt 18v battery pack was designed for that S&W smart gun crap. It's all making sense now. Doesn't Black & Decker make Dewalt?

Typical CNN. S&W lost money because of the lawsuits. Right. And the thousands/millions of gun owners boycotting them had nothing to do with it....

From the looks of the news this morning, this is apparently a done deal. I'm just not sure if I should feel good or bad about it........
Link Posted: 5/14/2001 9:50:33 AM EDT
BTW, check the timestamp on this, all those who think they got the scoop on this. [;)] Sometimes it's fun to work at a news company, even if it's CNN.

Think about this for a second........what was once one of the most respected gun manufacturers in the world was just purchased for peanuts by a small company that makes trigger locks.

I won't link it, but here is a small tie to the industry : http://www.hsshf.org/PDF/HSSHF_Fall_00.pdf Heritage Fund Honor Role: Allen Company (The) Alliant Powder Anschutz Sporter Rifles Barnes Bullets, Inc.

Too bad they will probably compromise and wind up, as posted above, advocating mandatoy lock laws instead of listening to shooters. I do not want, own, or need S&W products, trigger locks, or smart guns.
