Sheriff Jim Wilson Joins Columnists at Shooting Illustrated

sicvr_0906Sheriff Jim Wilson is the latest addition to the prestigious list of columnists featured monthly in Shooting Illustrated, The Definitive Source for The Modern Shooter. Wilson, arguably one of the most respected gun writers in the industry, has his first installment in the August issue of the magazine.

Wilson served as a Texas police officer in Crockett and Denton counties for nearly 30 years. In 1988 he was elected sheriff of Crockett County, a position he occupied until his retirement in 1996. Since then his byline has appeared in a variety of publications, covering firearms, ammunition, personal protection and much more.

“I can’t think of a better writer to provide accurate information on self-defense, facing down a bad guy or accurately depicting strategies or situations readers may someday encounter,” said Shooting Illustrated Editor in Chief Guy J. Sagi. “His column is named ‘Straight Talk,’ partly because of his style that has garnered such a loyal readership, but also because he will be delivering the truth about self-defense, without all the hype.”
