Wilson Combat Hackathorn Special


Ken Hackathorn has been one of the most influential experts in the field of practical pistol shooting since the mid 1970's. His practical knowledge of firearms and training is unsurpassed and so is his well known love for the timeless 1911 pistol. When asked to develop his dream Wilson Combat custom 1911 pistol Ken drew upon decades of practical experience and his vast collection of custom handguns to develop the "Hackathorn Special". This model is geared towards the needs of the serious defensive shooter and has "Everything you need and nothing you don't". The "Hackathorn Special" is destined to be a Wilson Combat classic handgun selection. From the 5", full size construction to Ken's preferred sights and options, The Hackathorn Special is a unique combination of our time tested best features like full size slide and frame, one piece Bullet Proof® magwell, concealment hammer/grip safety and the versatile medium length trigger which is suited for shooters of all hand sizes. Each pistol will have Ken's signature and logo on the slide. - See more at:

Interesting slant on things

Pretty Amazing!

A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a handful of states and arrived at a striking conclusion:
 There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin ..
Allow me to restate that number:  600,000!

Over the last several months,  Wisconsin 's hunters became the eighth largest army in the world.
 (That’s more men under arms than in Iran .   More than France and Germany combined. )
These men, deployed to the woods of a single American state, Wisconsin, to hunt with firearms,

 That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and
Michigan 's 700,000 hunters, ALL OF WHOM HAVE RETURNED HOME SAFELY.

Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it literally establishes the fact that the
hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world.

And then add in the total number of hunters in the other 46 states.
It's millions more.

The point?

America will forever be safe from foreign invasion with that kind of home-grown firepower!

Hunting... it's not just a way to fill the freezer.

 It's a matter of national  security.  

That's why all enemies, foreign and domestic, want to see us disarmed.
 Food for thought, when next we consider gun control, whether you agree with it or not.

Overall it's true, so if we disregard some assumptions that hunters
don't possess the same skills as soldiers, the question would still remain...
What army of 2 million would want to face 30 million, 40 million, or 50 million armed citizens???
For the sake of our freedom, don't ever allow gun control or confiscation of guns.
