- This article is about the fictional company, Mann Co.. For other uses, see Mann Co. Store and Mann-Conomy Update.
Mann Co., a division of TF Industries, was originally founded by Zepheniah Mann, ownership of Mann Co. has since been given to close friend and hunter Barnabas Hale, as stated in his last will and testament. The company is currently run by Barnabas' descendant, Saxton Hale, who operates under the policy that if you aren't 100% satisfied with their product line, you can take it up with him. In addition to their weapons, munitions and cosmetic lines, they also publish Dapper Rogue, a catalog for the "gentleman scoundrel", of which the Spy takes interest in. In more recent times, the company served the Badlands and ran The Zepheniah Mann & Sons Co. Quarterly Concern, a "compendium of broad swords, musket guns and doomsday weaponry for immediate sale" – a pamphlet of no small interest to the Soldier. The Administrator has been known to make use of Mann Co. for custom orders via her assistant Miss Pauling. They were also the subject of two Senate investigations, one in relation to their alleged part in the tragic destruction of American monkeynaut Poopy Joe's capsule during takeoff and the other in relation to teaching boys aged 6-16, among other things: moral turpitude, arson, vandalism, hippie assault, tax fraud, at-home laryngectomies, car theft, gorilla slaughter, and the Heimlich Maneuver (which had just been invented and was still considered controversial).
Mann Co. went "online" as of the Mann-Conomy Update when Saxton Hale discovered the existence of the Internet after one of his employees, who was losing a fight against a gorilla during "Gorilla Wrestling Fridays", asked for his mother to be notified by email. Saxton Hale currently owns England due to the Internet, and the Mann Co. Store was created as well – a way for people to buy hats, weapons, bundles, and other Miscellaneous items for real currency.
