What makes Bill Wilson unique is the fact that he’s a winning competitive shooter, an accomplished gunsmith and a successful businessman who created the firearms powerhouse called Wilson Combat. All of these things undoubtedly make him unique. But deep down, Bill is also a lot like us—he’s a gun guy at heart—and in his must-read book, “Gun Guy,” he tells his story in his own words about competitive shooting, gunsmithing and building a business from scratch.

He’s also a real hunting enthusiast, as he’s made over 25 trips to Africa alone. In the book he also talks about his family, friends and customers, all of whom helped make Wilson Combat what it is today. And Bill has peppered every page of this book with valuable nuggets of shooting and life advice. I quickly found myself taking notes. Scroll through the photo gallery above to see just a small sampling of what I learned.
