    In a joint news conference today Lyman Reloading Products and Lee Precision, Inc. announced a major price increase in their respective lines of iron and aluminum bullet moulds.

    A collective gasp of astonishment rippled through the throng of reporters present when it was announced that because of a sudden and drastic fall in profits the increase would amount to 41%

    When one reporter asked if the companies were actually owned by one of the major health insurance companies he was answered with nothing more than a steely glare and was immediately escorted from the room by two armed security personnel.

    Lyman and Lee spokespersons explained that inordinate number of customer returned moulds have not only slowed down normal production but necessitated the layoff of 123 employees between the two companies. It is unknown when, or if the employees will be rehired.

    When queried as to whether the returns were due to poor quality control on the companies part both spokespersons verified that all aspects of production had been investigated by an independent engineering firm and everything had been found to be in compliance with normal industry standards.

    Asked if the profit decline could be the result of insider theft and corruption the spokespersons revealed that the possibility had been considered and investigated. The surprising result was that the inordinate number of returns and profit loss was caused by one customer.

    Although refusing to identify the particular customer they did confirm that their investigation lead them to believe that the customer lives in southern Colorado and for some unknown reason, possibly to prevent execution of criminal warrants, the customer identifies himself only by the moniker of C4W. Spokespersons speculate that he may be a member of a little known gang of complainers calling themselves, The Flatlanders.

    Asked how they plan to deter further returns and profit losses the spokespersons laid out their plan to offer the scofflaw three years of bowling or curling lessons if he agrees to give up bullet casting.

    Well, I did just return three molds today. So that may be true. Lee apperently runs on a shoe string budget too keep prices so low. In fairness to both they both said "send them back" and were very polite on the phone.
