    And don't forget the EPA. They've made it impossible to run certain businesses if they aren't grandfathered, and even then they are punished severely.

    Congrats on the acquisition! Make sure you level it up good, especially if you will be doing any muzzle threading. A smallish precision level can be found for not a huge cash outlay. Good luck, and...
