Operator

Good day, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the Q2 2012 Sturm, Ruger Earnings Conference Call. My name is Darcell, and I will be your operator for today. [Operator Instructions] I would now like to turn the conference over to your host for today, Mr. Michael Fifer. Please proceed.

Michael O. Fifer

Good morning. Welcome to the Sturm, Ruger & Company Second Quarter 2012 Conference Call. I would like to start with a reading of the caution on forward-looking statements by Kevin Reid, our General Counsel, and then I will give you a quick overview of the second quarter and we can get right into your questions.

Kevin B. Reid

Thanks, Mike. We want to remind everyone that statements made in the course of this meeting that state the company's or management's intentions, hopes, beliefs, expectations or predictions of the future are forward-looking statements. It is important to note that the company's actual results could differ materially from those projected in such forward-looking statements. Additional information concerning factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements is contained from time to time in the company's SEC filings including, but not limited to, the company's reports on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, and Forms 10-Q for the first and second quarters of 2012. Copies of these documents may be obtained by contacting the company or the SEC or on the company website at www.ruger.com/corporate or, of course, the SEC website at www.sec.gov. Furthermore, the company disclaims all responsibility to update forward-looking statements. Mike?
