    Went to the local gun show thinking I'd spring for a Guardian that I'd seen before. That vendor wasn't there, so that didn't happen. What did happen is a new VBob. Pretty happy with it. Very solid, cosmetically perfect. Like the grips. Range trip likely this weekend. valor bob 1 IMG_2149.jpg

    Great first post, and congratulations on your new gun. A really good choice. I don't care for bobtails in general, but I own a 10mm VBOB that I truly love. Well made, accurate, and marginally more concealable than the Government sized guns I usually carry. I am certain you will love it.

    Great looking piece. I’ve never owned or studied the Vbob. How did they hold the MSH in?

    yep. went looking for the old SAW folks - who are going out of business as their owner passed away and the family wasn't picking up the FFL, and had a few Dan Wessons still in stock at the last show. they weren't there today. Ally Outfitters is a new outfit that has a pretty decent selection and good folks. Bought it from them. they also had a nice Specialist full size stainless.

    The VBOB was the first used gun I ever bought, it has quickly become a favorite. Excellent fit and finish and gives me targets I'm proud to hang on the fridge! Could shoot it most everyday.
