yes but cheaper shipping, though i understand what you are saying. We get some jobs for Wi and their tax revenue, but no local discounts, they dont do the local shows or offer store fronts. So in the end there isnt much benefit for us. But it is still nice

There is no such place as the Dane County Compound.

Crane Technologies of Waukesha makes decent mounts and pintles.

He's a manufacturer of ammunition- that's a Type 06 FFL and he pays excise tax like any other manufacturer.
