The naming contest for Wilson Combat‘s polymer framed 1911-based 9mm pistol is over. Douglas Ervin who submitted the winning name will now receive one as his prize. The winning name: ‘The Spec Ops 9′.
Dang. I thought I had it in the bag.
Now that the contest is over, I can tell you my brilliant submission without fear of anybody stealing it for their own: The Wombat. (Get it? Wilson + cOMBAT = Wombat. It’s a natural!) Man, it’s a shame they couldn’t see the genius of it. I would have really enjoyed shooting it. At $2000 per Spec Ops, I probably won’t get the chance any time soon.
