    Well, my FFL did anyway! LOL

    I received my DW Guardian today. My initial thoughts when I was just handling it at the range were that this thing is put together nice! Very very great fit, and the finish seems very durable. After picking it up I ran to the range for a quick 100 rounds of WWB and a mag of Gold dots just to make sure it functioned right, and would be safe for carry.

    I got to the range and decided to just run the rounds through it very quickly just to see how it would function. There was less than a second gap between shots. I was very very impressed with the reliability, durability, and accuracy of this firearm. This is probably if the nicest, one of the nice gun I have ever shot just right out of the box! It has already became my new daily carry choice!

    Dave at DRC is a great guy to deal with. The service was great, and I couldn't have asked for a better transaction!

    Now on to the pictures.

    Pictures at the range. Remember these were very fast paced shots and there wasn't a single hiccup.

    It's not that bad. Just closely look over your stock DW TS, and you'll see where the safety block was filed off to engage the sear. Just mimic that notch. Go slowly and keep on testing the progress. Don't just ham-fist it and take it down to the level you "think" it should be at.

    Take off the grip panels to help you see where it's making contact.

    Congrats! I'm glad you changed the grips. 100% improvement. The DW grips are as ugly as the Colt Wiley Clapp grips.

    Nice looking pistol, always replacing my ambi's it seems. I've got it down to a science now and never screw one up. Well there was that time a car pulled out in front of me when taking one over to Jay... Hahaha aha.. Ron
