    ROTFLMAO...................... :D :D :D :D :D :D
  2. Pity the poor 1911 fanatic,
    He cannot believe there's a new automatic,
    A pistol that works with exceptional ease,
    No whistles and bells that are sure to displease,
    A frame that is made of a rustless material,
    Ergonomics so perfect they're nearly ethereal,
    Old shooters wake up, though it must be a shock,
    The world has moved on, it's time for a GLOCK!

    :D :D :D :p :p :p :D :D :D

    PS,
    I don't mind shooting Glocks...I put 'em right there in front of the target like you've shown in your photos... :D
    They turn into little bitty black lego pieces that way though.... ;)

    Oh, by the way, I really did like your poem. Don't agree, but liked it nonetheless.

    it's close, it has the extended beaver tail, adjustable trigger, skeletonized hammer, and novak low profile tritium night sights, beveled mag well, and threaded full length guide rod, but no ambi safety or extended slide release, but i'll remedy that pretty soon. shoots well and functions very well, only had 2 failures to eject properly in 200 rounds. i was well pleased.

    Well I went and did it again. I've said it to others and others have said it as well. Wilson's are like Lays Potato Chips......you wont be satisfied with just one.

    Some time ago I read an article about the Wilson Professional in one of my gun rags written by, of all people, a noted revolver afficinado named John Taffin. Of course his article made this gun look like some sort of "supergun" and he touted it attributes and supposedly bought the test gun sent to him. The gun was finished in Wilson's durable Armour-Tuff finish and I was somewhat enamored with the look of the gun. I am partial to the 4" 1911's. After that I bought my first Wilson...a CQB 5" and the relationship began. About 6 months later I came across a CQB Compact while looking for a Professional. No one had one in stock and I like to handle a gun before buying, so an online sale was not an issue for me. I have enjoyed them both through many hundred rounds and many targets with small ragged holes in their 10 rings. I recieved a call from the dealer that I have bought the other two Wilson's from, informing me that he had a Stainless Professional in his delivery from Wilson and would I be interested in one. I told him to hold it back and I would be there in about an hour. He then asked me if I still had that stainless Champion might I want to trade it in on the Wilson. It seems that he had someone come in his store asking for one. So needless to say, after some wheeling & dealing to get the numbers right for my pocketbook, and filling out the paperwork, I brought home another member to my Wilson family.

    I would love a Wilson CQB. I've shot them before and have been drooling ever since. Plus with Wilson being such a short drive, I could do any dealing with them directly instead of over the phone or by mail.

  17. Question for you 1911 folks. As I've said on these forums many times, I do love the 1911s for all of my kidding about the Glocks. My only objection to them has always been their weight and bulk for concealed carry. I own two presently, a Colt Goldcup and a Colt Commander, neither of which I carry due to that problem (for me at least). I do understand though, that there are several small versions of the 1911 on the market, i.e., guns with about a 3" barrel. Which of these would you folks most recommend for concealed carry, and what would you load them with? Obviously, a 230 grainer is too heavy for a short-barrelled .45, so would you go for a 165 or 185 grain load? Also, with the short-barrelled 1911s, does recoil become a serious problem?

    I dont know for sure that I've shot a 3" barrel, but I think I have when shooting with my uncle. I know I have shot the 4" barrel. Anything I have shot would be with the 230 grain bullets. Recoil has never been a problem. I dont even notice the differance. I prefer Kimbers. The Ultra Carry or Eclipse Ultra might be some to look at.

    i would go with the kimber tactical ultra II it is a 3in aluminum frame, steel slide, bushingless bull barrel, very manageable recoil, and accurate, it also comes with all the bell and whistles. it loves the 185g bullets.

    here ya go...
    So I took it all from Kimber's website. They pay SOMEONE to write the stuff.....


    Kimber quality where you need it most.

    Small pistols present a host of design and manufacturing challenges. They must be strong enough to handle the same ammunition as full size models, maintain absolute reliability and be accurate with a wide variety of ammunition. Recoil also becomes an important factor. Little pistols chambered for big calibers must be controllable from shot to shot by shooters with all levels of experience.

    Ultra Carry pistols are the smallest 1911 pistols ever manufactured. More importantly, Kimber quality doesn’t force a choice between performance and size. The slim 1911 profile makes them easy to carry and conceal. Because a 1911 fits most hands better than any other semi-automatic design they have a natural pointability that brings them to target faster.

    Unique design features contribute to both dependability and accuracy. The ejection port is beveled front and rear to give adequate clearance to ejecting brass, avoiding the jams common to other brands of small semi-automatics. The match grade bull barrel is even fitted directly to the slide without the aid of a barrel bushing. Edges are rounded and blended to prevent snagging on clothing or holsters.

    With 7-round flush fitting magazines riding in their shortened frames, Ultra Carry pistols carry more shots and have more power than almost any revolver. A dual-captured low effort recoil spring design keeps manual slide operation smooth. It also dampens recoil enough that these pistols are easier to control and shoot than a revolver. Safety? The 1911 has proven its safety through generations of use, and the new Kimber Firing Pin Safety that is part of every pistol makes them even more secure without impeding performance or altering trigger pull.

    Kimber Ultra Carry pistols bring a new, higher level of confidence to concealed carry. Light, powerful and dependable, there is no better choice.


    Ultra Carry II


    Stainless Ultra Carry II

    7075-T7 aluminum frame has been tested to over 20,000 rounds without measurable wear.

    Ultra Carry slide has longest cycle time of any short 1911, ensuring reliability.

    Bull barrel design keeps maximum weight forward, reducing recoil.
