Today we had a formal presentation from by John May and Bill Wilson that covered handguns, shotguns, rifles, knives, ammo and accessories. We were sworn to secrecy on a new entry level 1911 and provided a list of all the ammunition Wilson Combat will be offering – with prices. They have also developed a new handguard for ARs that is as slick as snot on a frog’s back. No, it really is slick and comfortable to grip but still permits rail attachment.
At lunch we visited the Saunder’s Museum in Berryville, AR. If you are within 100 miles of Berryville, take the time and make the detour. You can see the Colt that was taken from William Quantrill when he was captured in Kentucky along with Clyde Barrow’s hat.
Later we engaged in a friendly handgun / rifle shooting match in Bill Wilson’s backyard. I dropped one shot on the sorta El-Pres drill and the penalty kicked me to third place.
I spent most of the rest of the evening talking to another West Virginian, Joyce Wilson, Bill Wilson’s wife. Joyce is from Morgantown, WV and now splits her time between her and Bill’s home in AR and their ranch in TX. She is also the Executive Director of the IDPA (International Defensive Pistol Association.), a hunter and a pilot.
WILSON CUSTOM AMMUNITION will be available for the .380 ACP, 9mm, .38 Super, .38 Special, .357 Magnum, .40 S&W, 10mm, .45 ACP, .460 Rowland, .223 Remington and the .308 Winchester. Prices range from $ 20 – $ 40 per 20 round box depending on the load.
I get on an airplane at 10:30 CT tomorrow and land at home just after midnight EST. Should have paid Joyce to fly me there straight away. She said it would take about six hours.
