Oh you joke, but my hometown (Southern OH, just North of Piketon on US 23) got in a little trouble a couple of years ago for accepting donations to the tune of something like $1000 to make your ticket disappear. Wish I could find a better source...

Not 0$/hour, you need to compare "can I do this cheaper myself than paying someone else?" Parts are cheap, labor is expensive. There are many of us who can do the the work. The whole point of knowing these codes is to quickly track down the problem. Also, there are more than a few of us who work on our cars for fun.

Clarify this: do you mean you have to pay the "holding fee" on everything once you get a Class 3 or what? A very good friend of mine has AP for his .223 and .308, neither of which have any "holding fee" associated with them. Yes I'm sure there was a sales tax applied at sale, and possibly some federal tax because it's ammo, but I'm not sure about the latter because I've never bought any ammo. I just shoot his :)

Also I don't see this "holding fee" happening for things you can buy online, like ammo. My friend gets all his ammo from online, it comes in nice metal tins covered in Russian / Bulgarian whatever writing. He also has what I'm guessing you mean by high capacity (30 round magazines) and there was no fee.
