As many of you might know, I have been a sponsored shooter for Team Armscor. That relationship also included (by my choice, not a contract requirement) the use of the outstanding Rock Island Armory line of pistols. I have successfully used a RIA to win the inaugural and followup I.D.P.A. B.U.G. national championship, and have also used their .40 1911 and 9mm 1911 (5 inch guns) successfully in many matches. Recently I was presented an opportunity to work with the Wilson Combat Team (Custom 1911 line, AR-15 variant rifles, and Combat Shotguns) on a variety of projects including the opportunity to shoot their 1911 line in competions and have accepted that offer. I will continue my relationship with team Armscor, and will likely test and continue to write about the Rock Island Armory line of guns.
