Bulletin #8 08-24-2009
A New Door opened up for Barrel-Lite™
On June 22, 2009 we received an order from
paypal for 6 Barrel-Lites from a Mr. C. T. Fields.
It turned out that Mr. Fields was with the Department
of Wisconsin Corrections. We sent the 6 units to him
and shortly afterwards on July 28, 2009, we received
an inquire for 500 units from Mr. Fields.
We presented our quote for the 500 units, and
the request came back for price quote 405 units.
Which we sent to Mr. Daniel Westfield, On
July 31, 2009, (Who is The Department Director
in Madison). The order for 405 units was confirmed
on July 31, 2009. with an accepted with a delivery
date of August 11, 2009. For presentation to his staff
at his meeting on the 12 of August, to be held at the
Waupun Correctional Institute.
We completed the order on August 9, 2009, and Due
to the short delivery time involved. We made the
an offer and a suggestion to Mr. Westfield that we
could make a personal delivery at the location of
said meeting. We also asked "if it would be possible
we could make a short presentation to his members
at this meeting".
This suggestion was accepted by Mr. Westfield and
he gave us directions to said meeting place.
It was at the Waupun Correction Institute in
Waupun, WI., and the time of said meeting
was at 10:00 AM.
We left Arkdale, WI. at 7:30 AM., and proceeding to
travel to Waupun, Wisc. We arrived there at 9:45 AM.
This was a first time visit for us to State Prison.
Upon our arrival at the the front desk, we were well received
as they had been advised of our coming. After the check in
and other inspections which was short as we were not entering
the prison itself. They directed us to a meeting room just
off the main entrance.
Mr. Westfield, greeted us as we entered the room.
He presented an area where we could setup. He told his
group, of how they were looking for a an inspection unit
and how he had contacted Mr. Tim Lawhern of the DNR
Hunter Safety Division, and Mr. Lawhern put him in touch
with us. Then he introduced us to his group. There was about
25 to 30 in attendance at the meeting.
We definitely sent Mr. Tim Lawhern, a thank you email for his referral.
We were given the opportunity to speak about our product
to the members present. We told of the history of the product,
explained how the product worked in the various firearms the
prison brought in for us to use. And the use of the product
by the various 20 State DNR Hunter Safety Agencies.
The 6 Canadian Providences and the Royal Canadian
Mounted Police and Hunter Ed Instructors who use
the Barrel-Lite™, as training aids in their
Firearm Safety Classes.
My Wife Janet, and President of J.Bar Products Int'l., Inc.
told a good story of an event which happened at one of the
gun shows we had attended many years back to the group and
they all had a great laugh.
Short version of the story is. A man came up to our table
at one of the gun shows we have attended and looked at all
the display guns and looked down each barrel.
Janet tried to explain the unit to him, He said to her,
"I know all about the product" and again went and looked
up and down the firearms. He said to Janet,
"I have a question" Janet, told him to ask it.
He asked her: "Is that a thermometer?!
Janet, thought to herself, Ok, you know all about the
product and asked a question like that. So she held out a
Barrel-Lite™, towards the guy and replied to this person.
"Why don't you bend over and we can find out" Needless to
say the guy took off and never made another reply. He just
scooted away very quickly.
Now Janet, does not usually say things like that,
and having been a Nurses aid in her earlier years,
she could not resists, but this guy had asked for it.
This is her favorite story to tell when she gets a chance.
Every one always has a good laugh from her story.
Hope you did to! HA!HA!HA!HA! LOL.
After this presentation, Mr.Westfield took a break and
during this brake, again using the three firearms the Prison
had furnished us with a Pump Shot Gun and a Semi-Auto Rifle,
and a 9 MM Semi-Auto, to use and show his staff how they
worked in the various guns. The members of his staff came over
to the table and while Janet, showed them how they fully worked
and let them use them in the various firearms themselves.
They were really amazed at how well the units worked with just
the lighting in the meeting room.
While Janet, was doing this I was handing out to the different
members a package with a certain number of units for each
Correctional Institute to them. Which Mr. Westfield had
requested for us to make up for them.
During the brake, Mr. Westfield asked us to send him another
25 units as he had forgotten one prison. We told him we can do that,
and then we finished up and then thanked Mr. Westfield and the group
for having us there at their meeting.
This was a new experience for us, and we believe we have
opened another door and an avenue for the Barrel-Lite™,
to proceed down. We asked Mr. Westfield if he would give
us a letter of recommendation, that we could use in our upcoming
contacts with other State Prison Correctional Institutions.
He told us he would send us one.
We wish to thank Mr. C.T Field and Mr. Daniel Westfield
and his group for allowing us this opportunity to make
a personal presentation at his and their meeting. And for
his order for a total of 430 Barrel-Lites®.
