I was in a local gunshop the other day checking out some semi auto handguns. The guy helping me showed me a Wilson Combat ADP. It felt the best of anything I have put in my hand to date. However, It was a 9mm and I really would like to have a .40 cal. I was wondering if anyone out there has one of these or has fired one. And is it available in .40 cal??? The sales person wasn't sure.

ADP

it is only available in 9mm. I have never fired one. I love wilson's products, but I get the feeling that there are better polymer framed pistols out there for the price. it only takes 10rd. mags, you can get %50 more capacity with glock or XD etc... I think the ADP was initally designed as a back up weapon. I'm sure it would be good quality because Wilson makes great stuff, but if I were gonna buy another poly pistol, it probably wouldn't be an ADP. I would try to shot it if I were you. If you can shoot tight groups and it feels good, it may be your pistol.

"This pistol is designed for law enforcement back-up, personal protection and daily concealed carry, and is optimally configured and sized for those purposes. We do not recommend it for 500 rounds-fired range sessions – enjoy your Wilson Combat® 1911 style pistol for that. Fire your ADP enough to be competent in handling, and then practice with it regularly to maintain that competence. Always clean your ADP after practice sessions, and it will be ready when you need it."

- I don't know why they wouldn't recommend this gun for 500 rounds fired range sessions. That is kind of a red flag to me... because I know for a fact that there are other polymer pistols out there that will take much more punishment than that... without being cleaned

Good info. Thanks for keeping me moving in the right direction. My other favorites is the Glock and Sigs. They will probably be the finalist. Thanks again.
