Eleven years ago I bought a W.C. CQB, unfortunately about a few weeks later I discovered that the pistol had a "soft" slide as after about a few hundred cartridges the slide stop notch started to peening. I wrote to W.C. and to the Official Importer here and in about a couple of months the pistol was replaced with a brand new one that I put away as a safe queen and never shot. A couple of months later I found a Remington 700 Police & Leupold scope for sale at the gunshop I used to go after the range. Stupidly enough I did agree to trade my brand new W.C. for rifle & scope. The gunshop owner sold the CQB a few days later to an old man that I knew as I often used to see him at the range. I regretted I sold that pistol practically the day after. I used to see that old man quite often at the range, sometimes he had that CQB with him, and my guts were twisting as I was really upset with myself. In these last three or four years I've lost sight of that man, until yesterday. We had a chat, and discovered that apparently he's also a pretty good archer and in the last three years he had given up coming to the range and has been competing with his bow instead. More to that, he told me about his decision to sell most of his pistols... Cutting a long story short I managed to buy my old WC back, and this afternoon she's returned back home... I field stripped and cleaned it, the chap barely used it, in fact there are no wear marks, unfortunately by mistake he threw away the original "Wilson Custom Gun Test Target" and the "Quality Control Checklist", and now I wonder if I can still recover a copy of them from Wilson Combat. In any case I'm quite pleased, and all this makes me wonder as sometimes a pinch of "luck" can change for the better our lives.
