    I heard yesterday, at the club, that Lawrence is out of business. Is this true?
    They just had there 100th year anniversary. Doesn't make sense. Any news?

    Here's their web address: http://www.maycoindustries.com/lead_shot.htm

    Send them a email and ask them. There is an email address specifically for Lawrence Shot near the bottom of the page.

    I've found clubs to be about as unreliable a source of information as politicians are.

    I doubt it, their website is down right now, but their parent company, metalico (which is one of, if not the largest scrap metal dealers in the US), just reported a record year of profit.

    With the price of copper and lead these days, I'm not surprised they had record profits...

    I e-mailed Lawerence and Robyn e-mailed me back, they are still in business and knows nothing of them closing down, so this is a false rumor.

    Rumors are false again.

    Mayco Industries owns Lawerence Shot Co in Granite City Illinois.

    But, Gary, just because we know a rumor is false is no reason to stop spreading the rumor. After all, they may go out of business someday.
