    I've never been one for stainless but his gun is just pure beautiful! And I love the front strap checkering! I like how the stainless seems to have more of a satin matte finish. I've been looking at compacts and had considered the SA Ultra Compact but compared to this, it's stainless looks cheap and flashy....

    Nice gun, enjoy!

    Rocky,

    What is your definition of bells and whistles.

    My Wilson Tactical Elite built on an STI 2011 frame has somewhere upwards of 100,000 rounds through it now. This gun even feeds empty brass from the magazine, just chucks the entire mag without a hiccup.

    The only problems the gun has had are wear related. It's been back to Wilson only once for repairs, they did a bang up job.

    You guys are right Wilsons are nice pistols, but I doubt I would ever spend 1,000 or more for a pistol. I don't know, I would freak out if I got a scratch on it.
    Listen, Think and React.....Nuff Said.....

    Is that your daily carry? Impressive to say the least.

    No Jack, it's not. My daily carry is usually my Kimber CDP Compact.

    The Wilson is a little too bulky for daily carry with it's 15 round mags. However, as Clint Smith said of it when I was at Thunder Ranch......"If I were going to a gunfight......."
