    Didn't need it but the addiction got me. Was buying a CBOB and My "Dealer" (Pusher) had a new in box 5" blue Valor in box never fired. Had to do it. Never had a D/W now I've got 2. I need treatment! It's not fair to feed an ADDICT. Now I'm hitting the Card again.

    Dang! You started with two of the best DWs. Now you need a Guardian in 38 Super!

    I bought a blued Valor for my dad last year just after the announcement they were discontinuing that version. Very nice fit finish and accuracy, like anyone that has DWs would expect, but I really like the blued steel as a variation from their Duty Treat finish.

    I vote for a 10 minute ban for the OP if they do not post pictures within 48 hours.

    I only owned one DW and it was a 9mm Valor but stainless. It really was an amazing gun and I feel the pinnacle of their lineup. As was said, why would you discontinue the most popular line? Well, they have their reasons that we (outside the company) cannot see. No other pistol of theirs jumps out at me presently.

    But you will enjoy the s$!t out of that blaster once your korrupt govt deems you an acceptable citizen to own it

    They don't let you visit your guns while they are in jail? What kind of crazy state do you live in? :)

    If you don't live here there is no way to explain it to a person from a free state. Anyone that reads this living (doing time)in Kalifornia will know what I mean. When I leave here (retire) I might write a book. But everybody will think it's a Horror story. But it will be a Biography. Don't be fooled though, there's a hell of a lot of great people stuck here for one reason or another. Now we've got off the subject.

    That’s normal.
    Dan Wesson’s like most 1911 like to be fed however Dan Wesson’s tend to eat a lot and are known for multiplying when your not looking.
