    Stainless is what they had in stock. I don't (actually, can't) carry. I wanted a good range gun.

    IB that dude that likes wilson combat... I can't remember his name right now.

    :rofl: yep, that's the reason.
    Seriously though, it felt so damn good in my hands. Better than the Les Baer and the Nighthawk they had.

    It's all in fit and finish and smooth the gun is. I shoot a RIA 5" regularly. Earlier this year I traded guns with an instructor at class for a few mags. He took my FN High Power, I took his Les Baer Thunder Ranch Special. Shooting it felt very similar, maybe a bit smoother. But things like the safety were perfectly glass smooth and there wasn't a somewhat sharp edge on the whole gun.

    If you have the money, I say go for it.

    yeah it does. I'm used to shelling out (at most) $800 for a gun. I'm going to try and sell a few of my other guns that I don't (and probably won't) shoot as much as I will the Wilson.
