Kingsley, Iowa is growing

I don't know the man or his business, so I cannot say it's the place to go, but it's got to be good news when a guy loses his job and opens a small business with a little help from the state.

A gun shop.
Bob Farmer opened a gun business, The Shooting Shop, in September at his residence. Because of a degenerative eye disease, Farmer lost his previous job and contacted the Iowa Department for the Blind, who guided him through steps of entrepreneurship.
The Shooting Shop

There were many businesses in the article from small one person shops to a fertilizer coop that have been doing well despite the down economy.
