RAYGUN Des Moines IA
Owner Mike D went all the way to the East Coast for an Ivy League education, then turned around and came right back to Des Moines to open a Tshirt shop... good thing the T's are incredibly awesome so his parents couldn't get mad at him for it. (like... "America, only the insured survive", and "Dance it out bitch!") Be sure to check out the 'Etc' link there, it's funny.
