'Awesome Bill From Dawsonville' rides on a S&W 586 Limited Edition

We briefly had a Dale Earnhardt Special Edition Remington 1100 shotgun at the gun store where I work, it sold last week, and now we've got another NASCAR star featured on a gun.

Bill Elliott is still racing, though his glory days appear to be behind him. But in 1988, he was the NASCAR Winston Cup Champion and Smith & Wesson made a limited edition S&W 586 Nickel .357 Magnum revolver in his honor.
In case you're not a racin' fan, Bill Elliott is from Dawsonville, Ga., hence his nickname became "Awesome Bill From Dawsonville." And if you are a racin' fan and a Bill Elliott fan, you can buy this S&W 586 on gunbroker. Or just look at the pretty pictures. That's free.
