Wilson Combat warmup this afternoon.

I began this day off as I do on most days off.......with a 20oz mug of good coffee and a refill.







The highlight of the afternoon was a pitstop at the range for a warmup with a pair of 5" Wilson Combats.....45acp & .38Smoove.








Since my carry gun today was a .45....I opened up with the CQB .45.











Moved on to the X-Tac Elite .38Smoove next.











Figured they were dirty enough for a cleaning.

Always a relaxing way to wind down an afternoon cleaning a pair of gats.
















I'm a fan of the rounded gold bead....as is on the CQB.45











I'm also a fan of fiber optic....as is on the X-Tac Elite .38Super














Craptastic left knee was protesting from the long hours at work this past weekend....had trouble getting comfortable standing.....but my grip was improved after my last range session (2011 & P320 X-Five). I made a mental note to strengthen the grip...cover the available real estate the frames offer.

The panels on the X-Tac anchor the gun very nicely...as, surprisingly, the X-Tac frontstrap.

The CQB is like bread & butter with classic grip & frontstrap checkering.


I sucked, however on the trigger press.

I didn't press anything....but jerked it.


If I get the chance to return tomorrow morning I've promised myself to maintain the grip improvement and trigger work.

if you can't get the 45 to shoot, just send it over. a cheap easy hand builder is a tennis ball. i'm sure you guys already know that. dub, that super x-tac is something! i'm on the wrong side of the economy now, so no new pistols for awhile, but i gotta get an x-tac!

its funny that a several of the best cartridges' are best hand loaded. i'm thinking 44 spl, certainly 38 super, but also in rifle cartridges'. a couple favorites: 45-70 of course, but also the 7x57, and the 358 winchester. i hate to say this dub, but your build is just what i would order. except for sights. and caliber o_O. after all i wouldn't be best45 any more. :ROFLMAO:
