NRA Show-April 26-28

Last blog (http://bit.ly/BoseReid2019 ) we talked about the Eddyville event that is fast up and coming on May 18th. Today I thought I’d send a message to everyone about an event arriving to us even sooner.

Bose-Reid 2019 Event Tour

We’ve finally made it through the winter well and proper. The sun’s been shining, birds have been singing and coming back to us, and rampant debilitating allergies have already started to take their toll on the population, turning both rural and urban areas into danger zones of coughing and sneezing.

Setting Sail For a Grand Sale

Setting Sail For a Grand Sale

In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue. It’s just a little ditty that we grew up on, a little rhyme to remember a few facts. Columbus took to the ocean to find a better trade route to distant lands.  A big aid for the explorer were his three ships: The Nina, The Pinta, and the […]

A sight for sore eyes

We’re lovin’ the look of the new Color Wash natural Bone Trappers in what we are calling our “Stained Glass” Series! Glass has been with us since antiquity and our infatuation with it—especially stained glass— continues to this day. Long before the Common Era, glass existed. Archeologists have dated artifacts made of glass all the […]

Well, time for good news and bad news for Illinois citizens. The good news is that I hear the Matthiessen State Park is still really pretty, and Chicago style pizza never gets old. The bad news? As of January 1st, Mammoth Ivory will no longer be able to be purchased within the state due to […]

W.R. Case and Sons has been around for a long time in the knife business, and have done so by knowing when to adapt and when to stick to their guns. But they weren’t always the only big dogs in the neighborhood. There was a time when they were competing with several other related companies […]
