    Wanted to share....so I ended up doing a trade with PJ here on the forum for his Ed Brown Alpha Elite. Great guy....great transaction. Stoked to finally get an Ed Brown....looked at them years ago and just wasn't in a position to pick one up. Well, that finally changed.

    Took her to the range and she is a SHOOTER! Had to laugh....another shooter was there, and he is a "Wilson snob"....he commented "Oh...a poor man's Wilson" when he saw the Ed Brown (all in jest...)

    So, we agreed to go head-to-head on some drills...suffice to say, I trounced him...then ran them with my Glock and again edged him out. My comment back..."Guess a poor man is just hungrier"....LOL!

    We had fun and he was impressed with the Alpha Elite....here are a few pics...she is wearing the black grips at this time (what came with it)....

    Congratulations!

    The WC's are beautiful guns. But, if all you care about is maximizing your performance as a shooter, there are less expensive options that will probably suffice. The Ed Brown being a good example.

    WTG with a Glock no doubt, haha... I bet that made him feel good about his $5000 or better purchase.
