U.S. firearms manufacturer Smith & Wesson reported a 48 percent increase in sales in its announcement of the company's second-quarter financial results for fiscal year 2013.

The company's press release read:

"Net sales from continuing operations for the second quarter were a record $136.6 million, up 48.0% from the second quarter last year. The increase was led by continued strong sales across all of the company's firearm product lines."

I got me

a Beretta about a month ago.

Berrettas have a tendency to jam if you don't keep them very

clean..

I like my S&W Model 19. It has very little kick, fits like a glove and has much better stopping power..

My brother, who is a police officer in Washington State, recommended the S&W using 38+ P's over the Beretta 9mm...

Just remember to always keep your Berreta very, very clean..

And look at what their stock did today

I'm going with manipulation.
