    Sweaty hands?

    Why is it that a Wilson 1911 makes my hand sweat sooooo bad. Got to hold and look one over today. I really think I need it. It seems to be a good use for a tax return. 2995. ouch

    I can really relate to that.
    Vermont does not issue Permit/Licenses to Carry a Concealed firearm. Vermont allows anyone
    who can legally own a firearm to carry it concealed without a permit of any kind.

    just make sure you get it in stainless steel and put alumagrips on it so you don't end up rusting it from fondling

    As with all statements I've made and All that I will make, please check your local laws to verify accuracy. (and if i'm wrong let me know as I like to be right in the future) After all I'm just some goofball posting on an internet forum.

    You might be right, but none of those 6 Glocks will be even close to a Wilson 1911

    I came close with a work order and the whole nine yards. Finally, I came to my senses and realized that I have more fun having a revolver modified by a quality shop. However, the invoice I just received in the mail for my modified 640, made me a little sick.

    I have a friend that owns a few Wilsons and STI's,the guns are the smoothest I have ever shot and at 10 yards offhand slowfire I can shoot one big hole outta the X-ring,Downside for CC is the triggers are way to light,I literally thought about squeezing the trigger and the gun bucked in my hand,not only that but having a 2-3 thousand dollar gun sitting in a property room is scary,I carry a 1000.00 + dollar colt Combat Commander with a sight upgrade that is the most expensive gun I carry,and actually my RIA compact 45 has a smoother trigger and only cost 1/3 the price

    They are expensive but they really are outstanding too. They are worth it if you have the money to spend. Why worry about an expensive gun sitting in the evidence/property room? If it comes to that, you have bigger problems.

    Though, you know the sweating stops once you get the Wilson, right?

    Of course, the financially worry sets in at just about the same time. But, there you go.

    STI's are pretty nice. Very sweet shooting. I am still lusting after a VIP. Haven't taken the plunge with 1911's, but it will likely be the one if I ever do.
