    After owning 2 les Baer, 2 Browns, 4 Wilson’s and a Knights Armament and having to sell them in hard times; I decided to order the Wesson from Bud’s. I lost several thousand $ in the process.
    I am hoping it will function as I desire. I am sure the safety will bother me as to smoothness and hoping to be able to get use to it and the trigger. Just decided at age 56 I don’t want to work 60 hours a week in the ER. I figure it’s time to enjoy what ever life I have left.
    I will post pics and my options of the gun once obtained. If I don’t like it I will sell it and not loose nearly as much $.
    Most everyone else wants to move up.
    This will be an evaluation of moving down.

    Interested in your opinion on this. I am moving up from my Ruger 1911 to a Valor. My FFL just called to say it is ready to be picked up. I have my eye on a Les Baer next.

    Had a two tone Baer boss. I could literally shoot matching lines on the test Target. It was a great great gun. There was one posted here for around 1750 which would make a nice lifetime shooter

    DW is reasonably priced and the ones sold here seem to go for about 300 less than new. Wilson’s about a 1000 less unless needing cash fast which was my experience

    I did own on in the past purchased from a forum member. Everything was redone by one of the custom 3. It was very nice but I have no experience with the base gun and am looking forward to it

    That’s my plan to get several in 45&9mm one at a time via buds layaway

    The only things that I find I like are 1911’s and S&w revolvers

    I own a Les Baer custom 9mm just shot my 10,000 round today no hiccups. The Dan Wesson Vigil 9mm bought new in the box now have 3000 rounds no hiccups also two great guns.

    Good for you. After working 3 decades in ER/Trauma Centers (RN) I walked away and never looked back. Tired of the endless combat duty. The DW will be fine. The money for that job just ain't worth it.

    azguy1911 I'm done buying guns, I'm just a bystander now

    Dan Wesson's are the best bang for the buck, easy, hands down.....and there's always a buyer near by just based on the price point

    great guns and very nice trigger out of the box. My Dan Wesson Vigil may become my new carry gun.
