    Probably because Uncle Ted isn't on the payroll and it didn't have TED001 serial number. :dunno:

    Highly unlikely. It is b/c it is a Wilson.

    He only shot the STI better because he was wearing his Uncle Ted's Accurizer gloves. :tongueout:

    I've been deciding between a Wilson Hunter or an STI Perfect 10, both 10mm.
    Looks like I'll save 1200 and go with the more accurate weapon.

    I don't know of anyone that has ever regretted an STI purchase. Heard nothing but good things about them.

    The group he got with the Wilson looked like one from a Glock:rofl:

    With the position he was in when shooting both guns, I'm surprised both groups weren't worse.:wow:

    There could be something wrong with the gun, but from watching those videos, it looks like Operator error to me.
    Same thing happened a few days ago with a customer who bought a TRP. He is one of those "benched accuracy nuts" and came in complaining because his gun shot like 3.15" and his RIA's shoot like 1.75" at 25. So I took him out to the local club and shot the gun myself. My average group benched at 25 was 1.23". He apologized and said "i need to work on my skills I guess".
    Ted seemed to take less time between shots with the WC and may have not been on target that well. STI makes a damn good gun and is super accurate, but I could never think a properly fitted working WC would be less accurate then a STI.

    I'm pretty sure the STI failed to return into battery/malfunctioned in that video after the fourth shot.
    I highly doubt the STI is that much more accurate than the Wilson if at all. Could have been the ammo, the way the guns fit in uncle Teds hands, or just pure operator error. If these were fired in a ransom rest, I'd think this would be far more credible.

    Ted Nugent has never smoked anything, other than a cigar, in his life.
