Though it's been a few months since I shot it, once I inserted the loaded magazine and raised it toward the target, it felt like I was born with this gun in my hand. Hey, now that I think about it, maybe that's why I had my birthdate engraved in the frame?

Typical Inside 10 Yards Performance

Yesterday I received my most recent Wilson Combat purchase back from Wilson Combat. I had them round the square butt on my new bronze-frame Carry Comp 9mm Compact. I ran 100 rounds through it to help contribute toward the break-in of this particular Carry Comp; I hit 500 rounds today I am also going to be using my Carry Comps heavily in the article about recoil I am working on. While the action may not be quite as fast as the action on my Staccato P, there is no defensive handgun manufactured in 9mm that has recoil as mild as my Carry Comps. The Carry Comp in 9mm is documented to have over 60% less recoil than a typical 9mm carry pistol. There is simply no doubt about it. If you shoot a WC Carry Comp side by side with any other 9mm carry gun you can come can up with, you will see exactly what I'm talking about.

Typical Wilson Combat Carry Comp results inside 10 yards

Spent almost three hours at the range with these four pistols today and enjoyed every second of it! Next time you are felling stressed out at work, I suggest slipping out to the range for a few hours. Golf just doesn't it for me!

Great guns and great shooting.

You have flung a craving for that Wiley Ruger. Very cool gun.

What type of finish is that ?

I'd like to learn more about the WC Carry Comp pistolas.

I've never shot one.

I know this is an oddball question....but do you think the comp would worsen things in an indoor emergency use in terms of 1) increased sound volume from the upward venting 2) temporary loss of low-light vision

The only reference I have is with hunting.

I've had a ported guns that were insanely loud compared to their non-ported counterparts.

I know that any centerfire round is going to be hugely loud when fired inside....just wondering how much additional volume will assail the shooter ? Would it be enough to alter the shooter's ability to recover and stay on target ?

Also....any trouble with the fiber optic sights used with the comp guns ??? I'm growing mighty fond of fiber optic fronts.

I know these are oddball considerations.

I mean, if you are in a life threatening situation a little more muzzle blast is a distant priority......but the particular hunting guns I shot at game with (with no hearing protection) were enough of an assault to my senses to temporarilycompromise my abilities.

It's not always easy to slip in ear plugs when a deer sneaks in close.

Thankfully now there are some really nice electronic plugs that do very well and can be left in the entire hunt.
