* GunPorn: Or, more specifically, Shotgun Porn. Bill's [[WeaponOfChoice preference]] for [[ShotgunsAreJustBetter shotguns]] is shown with detailed closeups of several shotguns. In the original ''Invasion'' strips, he uses a double-barrelled side-by-side coachgun before upgrading to a Remington 870, which carries over into Book 1 of ''Savage''. In Book 2, he uses his old double-barrelled for a "Special Occasion"; Namely, the assassination of [[BigBad Vashkov]]. In later books, the Remington 870 returns, as well as a [[RareGuns Amsel Striker]] and a [[SawedOffShotgun Serbu Super Shorty]].
