BAT MANn’s 1911

No not that BATMAN, the Bat Mann that lives with me. When we were hunting with Bill Wilson last summer he took some time to work with Bat and his handgun shooting. After running Bat through several 1911s, Bill decided Bat needed a 1911 built just to fit him. Actually, a 1911 built just for new shooters with small hands.

The result is the Wilson Combat BATMANN 1911. Check out an upcoming issue of Shooting Illustrated magazine which will have a feature about this custom Wilson Combat 1911. Bill incorporated a myriad of features in this handgun, purpose building it for a new shooter with smaller than average hands. Bat put his first 50 rounds through the BATMANN pistol this afternoon and the difference a pistol that fits the shooter can make was pretty darned impressive!

Oh, If you like the steel targets Bat is shooting, you can get your own and at a 15% discount. Just visit the Action Target web site and enter my personal discount code MANN15.
