Dub - very nice day with two great pistols, and very nice shooting as well. I'm good on an 8" plate to about 35 yards, but have to go to a little bigger target at 50 yds. these days for unsupported pistol shooting. My first Wilson was a 5" CQB, which still is one of my best shooters in my hands, and it was the one I shot my Distinguished Expert qual with 5 years ago. I don't know if I could shoot that today with the diminished strength in my hands, but just like you I keep at it, and have to work on the grip. You did very well with those two pistols, and thanks for sharing.

Gun Nerd...guilty as charged. That right there is funny, as I think many of us here are gun nerds and guilty as charged!
The X-TAC treatment on top of the slide was something they started doing on the Supergrade X-TACs when they added the X-TAC grip treatment and slide cocking serrations to the Supergrades. Mine was the first XTAC Supergrade made, and has the traditional top of slide serrations, with the X-TAC rear cocking serrations and grip treatment, and several months later they came out with the X-TAC in the Supergrade lineup. Congrats on going full treatment on your X-TAC Elite. My Supergrade is in .45 ACP, but my retirement gun that I've posted about before is a comped .38 Super. I agree about how much that comped barrel adds to recovery ability for the next shot, Kudos Dub for getting the .38 Super in the configuration you did, it will be a pleasure to shoot for a very long time. The .38 Super really IS a reloader's dream.
