    As the title states, if you could buy 1 Dan Wesson in 2021, would you buy a used Guardian, or a NIB duty coat Valor VBob? Price difference pre-haggling is $150, meaning the NIB Valor Bob is $150 more. I don’t mind waiting on shipping for the used Guardian, and the Valor VBob would be a long...

    Work never seems to end so I have to think ahead and carve time out for the range which means make an appointment so I have an excuse to leave and be somewhere. I pulled two 38 supers out of the safe and spent a wonderful 90 minutes at Scottsdale Gun Club throwing over 400 rounds down range...

    A little 4 PM therapy session, Dan Wesson Guardian, Wilson Combat Stealth and Wilson Combat Sentinel. 100 or so rounds through each gun, 4 magazines of self-defense loads through each gun, not a stumble, everything was 100% perfect. Now to sit an clean them and watch some of RNC convention...

    I love it when a plan comes together, I was up and at my desk at 5 am this morning so I could make my 3:00 PM ranger reservation at Scottsdale Gun Club. I finally got to shoot my GI Guncrafter and boy it did not disappoint, with it's full size frame and 5" barrel I could shoot the stinger off...

    I’ve been in the market for a DW 9mm commander for some time, and in my hunt for the best deal, I’ve come across a used Silverback in 10mm for $1600 shipped. It does have a small blemish on the bottom of the guide rod area, but other than that looks barely used. About a year ago I had the hots...

    An alternate thread bestowing the virtues of a new members acquisition of a DW Guardian and his trigger laments wrought forth in me enough curiosity to exchange a trigger in one of mine. Both of these had stock Dan Wesson triggers yesterday. Now one is different. Trouble is, I don't really...

    I've previously owned two Guardian's and they were both 9mm; one I sold after being distracted by another shiny coin and the other I gave to my Dad. I finally made up my mind the next one would be a keeper so lets do a 38 super. When @BCD 45 posted one brand new -- I pulled the trigger. I'm...

    Wow, it has been a little while since I was on their sight but when did this happen? I also saw the Heritage RZ45, RZ10, Specialist (commander too), PM9-45-38 are all discontinued also. I hope there are some very good replacement models coming out.

    Hi guys, Trying to decide which should be my next 1911. This will be for EDC and Night Stand duty. (Which is why I am thinking a rail) This will be in 9MM, but maybe 45 if I can live without the extra 2 rounds. I carry now a S&W 1911ES. Purchased a SA RO Elite Compact in 9MM, but I lost all...

    LNIB, I went over the entire gun closely this morning when I took the pictures and there's not a mark on it. Nothing around the wear spots or the ejection port. It's exceptional. I only have 120-150 rounds through it during one range session in August. It has sat since. The previous owner told...

    A month ago at least a dozen online retailers had them. Lowest price was a touch over $1300 plus shipping to my FFL. Now that I'm ready to buy, the only one showing in stock is Cabelas. $1600 and will only ship to another Cabelas. That's a 200 mile round trip for me.

    Well I broke down. Ever since I traded my Valkyrie 9mm towards my EDC X9 I have to some extent regretted that decision. There were also some things about the Valkyrie that weren't perfect for me, but at the time the price was right. Having said that, all other things considered, I think the...

    Every 1911 I have had I would just grab some ammo and shoot the crap out of it without reading the manual (including a CBOB 10mm) and never had a problem but since this was my first .38 Super and it was very tight I decided to follow the manual and all the advice from here and do it properly. I...

    I have wanted a Dan Wesson for a long time and recently found a new “blem” that I was able to get for a good price. I have had it out a few times shooting it against my Kimber Stainless Compact II and my P220 Carry SAO. I noticed a few problems I wanted to ask about that I was not experiencing...

    It has been a good day. Stopped by my local pusher's and picked up the Dan Wesson Guardian .38 Super I had ordered. When I got home the Georgia Arms ammo I ordered was sitting on my front porch!
