New Book by Bill Wilson Bill Wilson

Authors: Bill Wilson with Michael Bane Forward by Ken Hackathorn Introduction by Michael Bane Back cover copy:

This is the story of Bill Wilson and his passion for life in the gun culture, and of his world famous company WILSON COMBAT. Bill is, what many people refer to as, a "self made man". Starting out from humble beginnings in the small town of Berryville, in northwest Arkansas, he has taken his passion for firearms and shooting and turned it into a successful competition shooting career and business. Beginning with a keen interest in guns, Bill has been eating and sleeping gun stuff since the 1960s. He is one of the rare breed called "GUN GUYS" and this is his personal journey and that of WILSON COMBAT, the premier custom gun company in America.

Also included are educational chapters, from Bill, with useful information on firearm selection, improving shooting skills, firearm maintenance and handloading ammunition. Additionally, photo chapters showcasing pistols built by the early pioneers of custom 1911s and unique deluxe pistols created by Wilson Combat are included.

This unique book is a combination of educational material as well as Bill's personal biography and the history of Wilson Combat.
