All of which wouldíve been eXceedingly better than eXperior.

However, I dig it, regardless of the name. Itís forward thinking of Wilson to introduce new models. They havenít, nor will they ever abandon classic 1911ís. But, itís in their best interest to expand their lineup.

We may not always agree with their business decisions or the evolution of their pistols, but lest we forget, us graybeards arenít the future. As such, Wilson needs to continue reaching beyond the AARP crowd. Pretty sure Wilson knows what theyíre doing better than I do.
This is eXtremely astute as an observation (spelling on eXtreme on purpose), and I agree. Pure wisdom IMO, because you are right: us old guys are not the future, our kids and grandkids are; best to develop a market for them, as their tastes will be a bit different than ours.
