    So I have a Wilson LW Professional in 9mm. The prefect carry pistol right? But when I carry it I feel under gunned. What do I do? I grab a 1911 inf 45acp. Then I think I need a few more rounds and grab a Sig 365 or Glock 19 in 9mm and I'm ok. I think I need therapy, LOL.

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but old Colts are new to me. Is there a WC magazine that will work with my 1979 Combat Commander in 9mm? I just spoke to WC customer service and they didn't know. If not Wilson, what other mags would you recommend. Thanks

I'm happy to report that I spoke to Ted and pulled the trigger on this late 70's Combat Commander 9mm. I'm local to Ted and will be dropping this off next week. So excited! Also, thanks to everyone...

    Addicts, Does this look like a lightweight to you? The paperwork indicates lightweight, however the frame to me looks to be blued. What do you think? https://www.gunbroker.com/item/868489464
