Bill Holmes was one of the last remaining links to a bygone era. He first learned about gunsmithing more than 50 years ago from a guy who took his "fix-it" wagon all around doing odd jobs. Since then, Bill designed and constructed innumerable firearms, wrote seven books and was featured in two videos for Paladin and became one of the country's best-known and most highly respected authorities on home-workshop weapons and firearms laws.
