    First let me say Grab A Gun is going to make me go broke! I just placed my order for a Springfield RO Elite 10mm and a DW ECP .45 ACP. I was looking for a lightweight Commander length for everyday carry and liked their price on a S&W Commander from the Performance Center. Then I saw the Springfield and being a 10mm slut went ahead and put that in the cart. Before ordering I decided to check out the DW offerings and they had the ECP in stock and only a little more than the S&W so it was a no brainer to switch and get the 4 inch DW. Now the wait begins. Damn holiday

    Really looking forward to some first hand reviews of the RO 10mm. It appeals to me.

    Grabagun is a good reason to get divorced.

    Ordered my first Tucker HF1 for the Springfield and I am talking to Paul at Warbird Leather about an IWB for the DW. I have a bunch of Paul's holsters and they have all been exceptional quality

    I’ve had 2 guns inbound at the same time but I’ve never purchased 2 at the exact same time....

    2019 bucket list item.

    Got the holster and the fit is perfect right out of the box. Paul makes great holsters.

    I've been tempted by that Dan Wesson ECP.
    Let us know what you think of it please.

    I finally got to shoot it today. I am braking it in per DWs instructions. I fired 100 rounds of Winchester white ox 230 gr FMJ without a bobble. I was not trying to get the most accuracy out of it but just trying to run some ammo through it. Having said that, this gun is accurate as hell! It is nice and light but the recoil was pretty reasonable. THis one looks to be a keeper.
