The combat .45.

Bill Wilson, along with co-author Michael Bane, have taken a no-nonsense approach to modifying the Colt .45 and its many copies. While Bill is not shy about mentioning his own products and ideas, he is also generous in mentioning other well known gunsmiths. This is a book that makes it clear that the average shooter need not spend a fortune on a .45 to turn it into a piece that is accurate and reliable.

In fact, the advice is to learn to crawl, figuratively, before you learn to walk. The tyro flat-out doesn't need a full house pistol to compete at his level. Bill tells what the beginner needs, not what he thinks he might "just have to have." As you improve, this book will tell you how to have your pistol keep pace with your ability. There is a point made between which modifications are practical and which are mainly cosmetic.

If you are thinking of buying a Colt .45, this is an invaluable reference and is highly recommended. Price is $12.95 plus $2.50 shipping and handling from: Wilson's Gun Shop, Route 3, Box 211D, Dept. GA, Berryville, AR 72616.
