    The February/2020 NRA publication Shooting Illustrated has a (5) page length article. The MSRP $2,695 USD but you do get (2) magazines with it. I can live the S&W MP9c. Someone will be along shortly to tell how wonderful the Wilson is!

    That makes my teeth hurt just to read. $2,695+ 6.5% NC tax? Aaaack.

    $2700 buys a lot of Glocks, I'm just sayin'

    And you would still be carrying a Glock. That Wilson is pure art and machining perfection. I would worry about losing it with a shooting incident, though.

    Beautiful weapon with out a doubt. Price - REALLY. As far as stats of the handgun, here are the same basic stats with more rounds.

    I'm not trying to be combative, but that's like comparing a top-end Taylor handmade guitar ($6K) with a $300 Ibanez. If you appreciate workmanship and quality, the two pistols shouldn't be compared in the same discussion imo.

    Not a problem at all Wavy. I understand the quality difference, just pointing the stats of the two. For me to drop that cash and carry it is out of my realm.

    Absolutely -- me too! BTW, I have the $300 Ibanez guitar I mentioned.

    And the new mini wilsons gar-O-teed for 1.5" at 25 yards all for only 2600 dollars !! I have a s&w 669 that fills me small pistol need BUT I would rather buy a BUL SAS II UL for 1250 dollars than a wittle wilson . I have had a chance to shoot a couple late model BULS full and commander sized and they are impressive pistols .

    SAS II ULTRA LIGHT ? GP ARMS

    I'm sure it's nice, but I just bought my last vehicle for $2,900 OTD! Haha...

    I like it. And if it was something that I felt I needed that I could not achieve with what I have, I would not cheap out on the purchase price.

    Maybe, someday, if I’m able to match or exceed the mechanical accuracy of the guns I use now, I will be a serious contender to get one.

    But so far, it’s not lookin good for the home team:)

    Haw! I can't exceed the mechanical accuracy of my Shield, much less my new Colt 1911. I doubt I'll ever deserve a Wilson!

    That's super nice looking. And much more $ than I want to spend on a carry gun, kudos to those who can afford it and want to.

    There is much that can be accomplished with a cost effective tool such as a Ithaca 1911A1 that the Marine Corps issued me in my youth of which I employed. There are those that talk accuracy as in target shooting with scoring rings and there is practical accuracy employed on ones enemy combatant. The Wilson model subject of this discussion appears to be a status piece and yes a weapon. The question is the level of accuracy required for a defensive handgun and is the user up to the potential of the weapon but also the employed distances under most circumstances. As an example the S&W Shield 9x19mm is a cost effective tool which exhibits a level of practical accuracy for its indented purpose. As far as capacity thus round count the minimum capacity of at least (10) Rds is floated about, but with no supporting proof/evidence other than a theory which has not been substanuated but has come in vogue with the theory of multiple advisories in civilian confrontations. Law Enforcement and Military are different applications.
