The company's product comprises pistols, revolvers, rifles, guns, handcuffs and firearm-related products and accessories.

  • 2. Wedbush analysts commented, "far from satisfied" with their existing gun purchases, Hardiman commented in his upgrade note. In fact, gun owners anticipate an "even higher level" of gun purchases over the next year compared to the last year."While our upgrade may ultimately be seen as "early" given how much work is left to be done in the channel, there are a number of unpredictable catalysts that could accelerate this recovery, and we believe that AOBC's valuation is approaching the low-end of its likely range," Hardiman wrote.Meanwhile, the Republican-dominated government and Trump presidency "poses no threat" to the gun industry as opposed to prior months when gun owners bought guns out of urgency, the analyst continued (see his track record here). Naturally, this created a slowdown in gun sales, but now avid gun owners are expected to return to the market, which will create "support levels for industry-wide firearm purchases and gun stocks."
