Driven by the robust demand, management envisions increased sales from firearms and ammunition along with higher sales volume in its e-commerce operations, which are likely to have aided results in the fiscal second quarter.

Further, the company has been witnessing an uptick in new customers at stores and website. It has been utilizing its stores to fulfill online orders recently. These endeavors are likely to have favorably impacted its top line in the fiscal second quarter.

However, continued uncertainty, surrounding the ongoing COVID-19 situation, remains a matter of concern. Management on its last reported quarter’searnings callprojected supply-chain disruptions due to the ongoing pandemic to affect results in the to-be-reported quarter to some extent.
