Yes folks, our second
newsletter has rolled off the presses. and we are changing our format a
little bit to try and get more
into it. We are also learning a new computer
program since last time, so bear with us . And many thanks for your hundreds
of positive responses to our first newsletter.
OK-here goes with the
sound byte type infamous NEW GUN NEWS-to wit:- the new Ruger 454 is due in
June-Taurus has cut prices big time in their Casulls- we are now very happy
being master dealers for Kimber 45’s
In stock and coming and
wow are they well built- Remington wood guns are looking real nice this
year- its so great seeing a wood stock that has some sex appeal (and you
thought this was a family newsletter)- Our famous 22
Pistol sale is still on and we have about 40 gone and 16 to go.
Have a nice bunch of
sporting clay over/unders in . Ruger Woodsides are around more.
Benelli Nova pumps won
the ugly gun of the year contest-but come see-its so ugly its pretty- Rifles
of all shapes and sizes- Those of you who have blessed us with your
presence- have noticed that the shelves and racks are
full. Lots and lots of
trades too. And as of last week we are happily handling the Franchi line of
shotguns. And we think these are pretty neat too>!!!!!!!!!!
& SPORT APPAREL & ACCOUTERMENTS
We have reopened ye olde clothes room and put in new
racks- we think its pretty cool and hope you
will too- and we even got a bunch of new stuff and hung it up-what a
concept- our moms would be so proud- more coming every day- got a great line
of chamois shirts coming in 2 weights-12 colors and a billion sizes- if we
don’t have the perfect combo for you, we WILL order. Lots of neat stuff-
This is proving one of the
hardest things to get rolling this year. Getting the right stuff . “Rehabbing”
this is going to take this whole year, but c’mon and look, we still have a
lot of neat stuff- got some nice lures and odds from last year, Who knows,
you might find a dumb fish that doesn’t know its being had by an out of
riser bill (pt)
Right now at Bills on
the Hill, we are receiving new shipments of bows daily. Reflex, Browning and
Hoyt and a few select others. Remember, its’ never too early to bring in
your bow for a tune. while the selection is good. And for the archer whose
aim ain’t what it used to be, we have a half off sale on all arrows with
vanes. You can afford to lose these. Great deals on lots of setups,right and
left hand, all set up to rock and roll.
In our 1st letter we talked about the laws , state and fed and
how they work and how things are working in the real world. Recent events
have made us all very sad at the inhumanity of man.Our society seems to be
spawning a mindset where blame must always be place elsewhere And no one wants to take responsibility for their own actions
We have been asked many
times in the last few weeks about different aspects of this. We have no idea
what was at the root of the minds of the perpetrators. But we do know that
the individuals doing this heinous thing, They were the guilty parties, not
a hobby, Not a thing. These were people doing harm to other people.
You can not do justice
to these situations with one line TV quotes. I hope these thoughts do not
As this second edition is being put together, we
are still waiting for our
safes. Our first order was for 20 safes. All custom made to specs. We will
have 3 of those in stock and for sale.
Due to your requests, we will be doing this again. Probably placing the
order near Junes end. The Good news is that once again you will save 100 to
$200 in freight charges. But the bad news is that delivery is going to run
8-9 weeks instead of 5 to 6. But when you factor in the safes quality, your
savings, and how tailor made it is, you still can’t go wrong!
We want to thank the three hundred and 12 of you
folks who traveled hundreds of miles for the village board meeting. Only
through your staunch support were we able to hold back the onslaught of
parking meters in Lomira. The folks from Parnell were great, bringing in
their experience in this matter.

tongue in cheek introduction to

Since the first of the
year, we have experienced really terrific growth, darn place is even crowded
sometimes, And with this growth have come some growing pains, keeping stuff
in stock, getting orders and repairs processed. But we are working hard at
building an efficient team. And we still want to have fun doing this, and we
want you to have a good time as well. Cause we want you back time after
time. So don’t think we hang around sipping tea and eating bon-bons. We
will be better prepared every time you come in. And we thank you for your
We are starting to look
like we have a nice bunch of stuff to put on your feet. Got a great bunch of
LaCrosse shoes and boots as well as waders and hips. Mens and womens sizes.
Also have a couple of really nice Browning Boots for men and women in a full
range of sizes. Northlake line is still coming in, really warm!!! And there
are also some great sizes left in closeout boots.
We made a mistake in
our e-mail address. On our new business cards it is
which is good, but on
our last newsletter, it was listed as firstname.lastname@example.org
and this second, was
where our typing disability caused us to lose a letter. So as of now, the
right, official and correct e mail address is:
Yeah, we can’t even
type and we are working on a web site. But heres the deal, we want something
for you cyber surfers out there, as well as something that will be of value
to the rest of us. So its under development now. watch this space.......

list of used shotgun/rifles and handguns. Since there is the lead time

about 8 used field over and unders. not to mention about 15 Clay guns. And
handguns. used handguns right now, number
about 20, are really an interesting group. Our new selection is pretty nice
Obviously these are all
for sale, but c’mon in. See whats up. It seems like every monday morn we
sort through about 12 to 16 trade ins and put em out.
We do not want to be
running a museum here.
Our optical department
is the one that contains: scopes of all sizes and colors, mounts and rings,
shooting glasses, spotting scopes, and rangefinders. We have a large
inventory right now in all these areas, and some of the following new and
unusual things> Great deals on spotting scopes with tripods at prices
from 68 bucks to $115 and beyond. New Laser range-finders, good to 800yds. A
number of handgun red dot type sighting devices. And I’m sure I’ve
missed some things.
FINALLY, we have a
bunch of traditional as well as inline rifles in stock. Powder situation is
mighty fine as well, (and medium and coarse). Lots of lead balls and bullets
bending the shelves. C’mon in and let these bullets bend your wallet
instead of our racks.
INSIDE OF THE JOINT..........
like we said, we have
been busy pushing peanuts down the sidewalk with our noses most all of this
spring,,but when we weren’t doing that,we have been ripping up, putting
back, cleaning, a lot of painting, and lots of unpacking and then packing
back out for you. Its an
ongoing task and you all have made it more difficult because so many of you
keep on coming in and buying this stuff. (but please, PLEASE, DON’T
STOP!!!!!!) Give us 4 more months and well have the joint chrome plated,
One last thought, we
have a lot of really neat stuff, and we like it, and we get it in here cause
we think you are going to like it enough to take it home. Let us know if we
are missing something, and you
should realize that we DO listen to you because without you, we can not
We are very happy in
our store, and if you don’t have a good time here, then we have to work a
little bit harder.
Well, we do, and we
miss em, but we understand the drive for safes.
However for those of you and us out here in the hinterlands, Bills is
going to be introducing, in July, a gun cabinet that looks like a real wood
glass door gun cabinet, and IS a real wood glass door gun cabinet, BUT, has
many of the attributes of a safe. Cmon in and look at this thing in July.
...Well, not really
airguns, these are some of the finest cocking spring loaded instruments of
precision and accuracy. We are gradually expanding the number of models on
hand. Beeman, RWS and on. We also still have the reliable Sheridan, as well
as the old standby Daisys and Crosmans.
A large number of you
have been made legal to hunt and/or fish electronically. We still swear we
can write those puppys out faster, but its a lot cleaner and more legible
this way. Though the new bumper sticker type thing is hard to get
used to. We can do Patrons this year, and you know, look hard at these, they
are really a good deal. And this system will get even faster for second time
