    The old man passed on, and his son took over for a while. He lost interest in it after the inventory ran out. No more.

    That's great news, Jerry. I have two of the fabric-covered single-barrel cases for my 870s and 1100s and two of Paul's last aluminum combo cases for our son's and my Beretta combos. Hearing that they are still available with improvements is good news for all shotgunners.

    I will say this much. They are twice as high cost wise now then they were when WarWick was making them.

    Paul Sedwick never made the cases.. Warwick was the name he used for the cases he had made and sold.

    Other then being a friend.. I have nothing to do with Bill, his company or his cases.. I do know they are quality built in the USA and come with a life time warranty.. A good product for a good price !!

    Bill is an ATA shooter and you will find him at many of the larger shoots. The case is well known and from what I read recently.. the new Dennie DeVault guns will come cased in one of Bill's cases.. so to me that alone speaks volumes!!

    As a side note: I'm pretty sure that gas and some shells are twice as high now compared to when Paul was traveling around selling them.

    I still own several new, unused, wrapped original Warwick cases. Plus several others in use. For the money it was hard to beat a Warwick case....wood frame or aluminum. Plus, Paul was a great guy to deal with.

    I have a Bill Boyd / Safe case that Dennis got for me. It's an excellent case.

    They are not light in weight but built to protect your gun. Real sturdy.Well worth the price IMO How can you beat a lifetime warranty ? ...Philly D

    I only met Paul once and that was at the Ohio Grand. Great person to talk to and a great saleman. I was sorry to hear that he had passed away.

    As for price I can understand cost going up but to a point.

    I had to have 2 hydraulic cylinder for the tractor rebuilt because of bent rod's. At the time I repaired them 12 to 14 years before for a price of $250 each. I sent them back to where I had them repaired before. The lady told me that they would be $1250.00 EACH. I told her that I expected a increase in price but not that much. She stood her ground and then pissed me off. I called the shop and spoke to the shop manager. He said SHE WANTED HOW MUCH? THATS NOT RIGHT. He asked for my number and said he will call me back. After about 15 to 20 min he called back and said the price per cylinder was $400.00. I said thats agreeable. He also added that she was out of line with her price and that it was taken care of. At the time this happened it was 2007.

    Jerry B. I know Bill well also so don't keep talking nice about him. His head gets big and he wants people to buy him beers and stuff. Just kidding Bill. He is one of the nicest people and his cases are built Airline proof. And that is saying alot.

    Paul was a great guy. He shot trap at the local club in Portage, WI. Always super nice and very helpfull to everyone. Nice to still see his name on here from time to time.

    Bluzman98 says "For the money it was hard to beat a Warwick case....wood frame or aluminum."

    I agree they are good cases sold at a good price. I bought an aluminum case from Paul at the 2005[?] Grand. He explained how they were constructed. The aluminum cases are wood frame also, aluminum clad. The aluminum is riveted to the wood. The Bill Boyd cases are apparently made the same way, the website mentions "Dove tail handcrafted construction." That's why they are so heavy.

    Paul wasn't in good shape then but he clearly enjoyed what he was doing.
