Just Bought My Birthday Gift
« on: January 19, 2022, 08:02:48 AM »
I decided to splurge a bit and buy myself a Birthday Gift. This is my new carry gun.

Having a gun in your hand is much more effective than having the entire police department on the phone!

Well, Happy Birthday to you then.................. ;D


Very nice handgun, I hope it serves you well.


(That maybe a really nice host platform if they decide to make it in the new .30 Super Carry.  Waiting to see how that new cartridge works out.)

Clearly a VERY happy birthday.  That is a beautiful handgun.  I bought a WC CQB for my oldest boy’s 40th a few years ago and we both loved it.  Got a full size Ed Brown Special Forces .45 for my 70th and cherish it.  The good ones are so smooth you cannot feel them cycle when fired.  Congrats!

Happy birthday and a very nice pistol!  Have you got it yet?

By the way, I have a birthday in a couple of months if you still feel like splurging.   ;)

Coming in March. Mine was a custom order. Looks like this one...

A nice present for yourself. 

Mine is tomorrow.  Enjoy your day, good Sir!

That is a beautiful pistol; however, I would not want to use it as a self defense carry weapon. The reason being is that if it were involved in a valid self defense encounter and another person was shot it would be seized by law enforcement and placed in a police evidence locker awaiting disposition. Other than the R9 this is why I only carry weapons like Glocks that I don't mind their possible loss.

Dang Dawgs.  :(.
That is a great pistol, Norm!  More and more I find myself typing, “Wilson …”, in search bars.
Enjoy it!

I love how the slide partially resembles an R9 slide with a hint of Browning Hi-Power!   Ha haa. . . . .
