Aren't you can I ask you what's your best selling model and what roughly is the selling price.
They think -- we're in a 500 dollar range for sale.
Selling price I would believe that my number one seller Ruger firearms and I think that's because of the price point.
That's a that's a firearm that's under 500 dollars and then probably the 600.
