    I've sold several surplus weapons and have the needed funds to purchase a new toy. I've always wanted a Wilson Combat but have no dealers close by. Any recommendations on a dealer that may have a good inventory and perhaps less than MSRP. I have a LGS which will accept shipments from another dealer. Suggestions appreciated. I would also consider a used Wilson in good condition.

    Try Dave at DRC Firearms. He is a sponsor here and is also a Master Wilson Dealer. You won't find a better guy to deal with.

    Maybe I should introduce a 5 year, zero interest layaway plan, then maybe Hokie would recommend me......:pop2:

    Sorry, not all of us are dripping in cash and have a mortgage, car payments, 3 kids, child support, etc etc etc...

    It doesnt need to be 5 years...1 year no interest layaway will be fine. :biggrin1:

    Guys I appreciate the informations. I want to give forum members/supporters first chance for my business. I will call drcfirearms because he at least cared enough to post. I have several pm's to look through. My purchase will come down to availability, service offered, attitude and competitive pricing. And the story continues......

    I can tell who I wouldn't recommend,but that weasel has has enough publicity in another thread.:frusty:

    I will add our favorite PHD to the mix.

    I don't know if CJ has sold any since he got his dealership,but considering the service I have received from him on my Baers,I would at least call him for a "discussion" about an order.:lol:

    But it is nice to know we have a BUNCH of good firearms dealers on board.

    Just one more reason why this forum is the best! :thumb:

    Hey Dat, I ventured all the way out Gilbert Avenue to Thomason McConnell and only had to unholster one time! I saw several delivery trucks with rear gunners. I've thought of a new business for that area, an ammo delivery service. Seems like a lot of "9's" in one hand and "40's" in the other is very popular up that way. Oh by the way the "40's" is 40 ounces of beer in brown bags.

    Be sure to ask him about the 500 round Mrs DRC break-in....free of charge. Seriously though, Dave is a great guy and has access to pretty much all the top shops. Had I not been in a situation where I needed 8 months to pay for my Brown (using George's layaway), Dave would have gotten my business. :thumb:
