Happy Thanksgiving Everyone

881 19
As I’ve been “away” throughout most of this year, I thought that perhaps I might find a Happy Thanksgiving wishes thread to add my greetings and best wishes to all Wilson faithful friends. But not finding such a thread, maybe I could start one.

Just to keep the thread somewhat Wilson related, looking at the decisions Bill and his family have made about product development in recent years have proven very astute. And these decisions have helped us to enjoy our past and present Wilson acquisitions all that much more.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

So good to hear from you Chrys! Happy Thanksgiving to you and all my friends here.

Wilson’s addition of the X, SFX, SFT and who knows what new models will be added, have been extremely successful and those additions have certainly added more members to our sub-forum.

As always we look forward to hearing from you as your posts are must reads for many of us.

Thank you, Thank you CA…and everyone. As you probably recall, I too am close to the 1911. It’s my choice for all handgun purposes. I’ve come to recognize that many other people are drawn to Wilson’s newer products, separate from or in addition to 1911s. Several years ago, the Wilson family foresaw all of this very clearly, and as one result of their vision, Wilson Combat remains today a thriving, successful firearms builder…better than ever from a business and customer service continuity perspective. And even for a 1911 purist as myself, all of the positive developments at Wilson Combat, ensuring future continuity, provide me with a happy confidence that I can count on Wilson to continue support for my treasured and trusted 1911s.
The Wilson single stack 1911’s always bring a warm feeling in my heart and in the .45 version are at least 95% of my carry choice. I do have an EDCX9 and a small 10 round SFX9. Do I kind of wish that Wilson had stayed a smaller single stack company specializing in .45, 9mm and .38 Super, yes. Would that make any business sense in 2022, no. In my opinion, Bill has done what was needEd to not only stay competitive in today’s market but to keep himself up on top. In doing so he has been very inventive and a little out of the box with the new offerings. All the while maintaining the builds of our beloved single stack 1911’s. An Experior single stack could be in my future.
