Have gun stocks, will travel? The runup in weapon makers Sturm Ruger (RGR +13.1%) and Smith & Wesson (SWHC +12.8%) could just be getting started as the industry sees an ongoing boom in demand. In January, background checks for gun permits rose 17.3% Y/Y - marking the 20th consecutive month of increases.
