Has anybody ordered from them lately?
Their website has been down for awhile and they don't answer the phone.
Fortunately, I don't have any pending orders but have had good dealings with them in the past.
Their sister site, callingcoyotes.com is down too.
They're located in Valentine, NE

The message says "Sorry our store is under construction"

I have dealt with them a lot and stopped in there back in June while on vacation.
Nice bunch of folks in a big metal biulding way out on the west end of town. Nothing fancy but they had a warehouse full of stuff then - except for powder and primers.

They're closed for good it appears.
Harvey and Sue Whitney (owners) filed for Chapter 11 on Nov. 17.
The creditors include: Hornady, CCI, Hodgdon, Bushnell, Federal, Lee Precision, Nosler, RCBS, Redding, Sierra Bullets, Bank of America, Sightron Inc. just to name a few.
Good thing my name ain't on that list. I ordered well over a $1000 worth of primers from them this summer and received everyone of them. Hate to see them go...they'd been in business since 1975 and had a "A" rating with the BBB.

That's a shame. They were great folks to trade with.

That's too bad!

I had a couple of orders with them and they always went out of their way to help and even get little parts for me....that probably cost them more to find then they sold them to me for (especially if you consider overhead and shipping inbound).

I wish them the best, they did have great service and their hearts were in it. These are challenging times and I see a lot of small businesses going through the same.

Wow, it's hard to believe and business associated with firearms or firearms accessories would have to file for Chapter 11. I would think they are the only businesses that are still seeing brisk sales. I have bought from them in the past, they are nice folks. I'm sorry to see them go...

This business is located in my hometown. Looks like Whitney lived outside of his means and now is dealing with the consequences. It is disappointing that they are out of business.
