Laurentia was a center of international commerce in the world of Meropis, which included armaments manufacturing despite the persistent neutrality of the Laurentian state. While most of the customers of such companies were police and military forces abroad or at home, Laurentia had a significant "Pioneer"-based outdoorsman culture. While the city had considerable regulations on firearm ownership, many citizens owned firearms for sports and hunting, and a number of arms manufacturers owned retail gun stores throughout the city to serve these needs. These stores have the equipment to craft guns and ammo. It is possible to Harvest either Pistol Clips or Pistols from a Gun Store.
