    After whittling down the old collection I saw a brand new VBOB in 9mm and Silverback in 10 mm today at the LGS. I think these discontinued models are going to go up in value and these were both priced substantially less than DW MSRP.

    I never paid much attention the 10mm Silverback but damn, after holding it, that's a damn fine gun ;)

    The Silverback is a very nice pistol.

    Yep, gonna have to do the same on the safe problem, not thinking bigger but adding one. Last rearranged and made a little room, that's all gone.

    Nope :) I hate to buy something and just oil it and put it away. Hence selling my Brown and GI Bobtail recently, how many can I shoot.

    Although that stainless VBOB would make for the perfect Steve Owens base gun, Mmmm

    Years ago I just bought a second safe. Then after years it was full also. My wife, bless her, said buy another safe but I felt I had to start getting rid of at least one gun for every new one I bought and that has worked out O.K. I feel bad about ones I have not shot in several years but want to shoot but not as much as others I have.

    Maybe ask for a quantity discount. ;) Maybe get a group buy going for good safes. :)

    AZ I have one in 10mm also and it a very nice shooter and well made. Since quite a few commercial loads are sort of tame, I loaded up some with Accurate #7 right at 1200 fps (copper plated) and it can have an attitude!
    It is on par with the Valor with the exception of adjustable sights, which is why I bought it.
