    Scroll down to: "FS Products made from Shot bags"! Made in America by an American!!! :>) I am a one woman operation trying to make it in this economy. I ONLY buy my thread, polypropolene straps, binding, etc from USA companies. My sewing machine is MADE in the USA! (It's 30 years old and that's probably the reason) I use the US postal service and my products include FREE shipping. There are other men and women on this site that have businesses in this country. Support them!

    Throw away your Nike and Addidas tennis shoes and buy New Balance.
    The only athletic shoe maker left in the USA.
    I feel better when I know the money keeps someone working here and the money stays here.

    It's a safe bet that the computer you're using is not made here or your TV, vacuum, dvd/cd players, telephones, and most of the clothing in your closets.

    Spolar reloading Presses are made right here in SoCal.

    Last I heard, we were still part of the USA.

    I did my part.

    thinking of changing my handle to "Remington 870" too.....

    American stuff available in Japan, China, Bangladash, and many of the finer retailers ... If WalMart don't have it you probably don't need it ... WPT ... (YAC) ....

    Lugnutz, I bought a jeep because it was American-made. Got it home, lifted up the hood and there was a Mitsubishi engine. Oh, well. -V
