Just last month, Crosman was acquired by Compass Holdings. This was a shock to the airgun community, with concerns that Crosman will continue to be an innovator in the airgun community. On the heels of that acquisition, Crosman Corporation has now announced their acquisition of LaserMax. We believe this is just one more in the beginning of the firearms industry consolidation that will happen over the next few years.
