    Can't wait to get it to the range. Friday maybe if its not piss raining. Also, I am looking for a good holster for it, nothing cheap like a uncle mikes or anything. I have been looking at Milt Sparks but they have a 6+ month wait time.

    That is truly bad ***
    You need a holster? Contact a member named stmcelroy. He has made me a couple of really nice leather holsters, very high quality.

    Darn, all I got (so far) is a RVND™ 7720 LM 7" GPS and sunshade for the motorhome. They are having a $100 off trade in sale this week and I couldn't resist. So $249.99 rather than $349.99. Now to find one of my old GPS's to send them.

    Last month I got a Kimber Ulta Crimson Carry II, now looking at which Kimber I want next.

    Nice piece. Beautiful in fact! Are those wood grips?

    If I may make a suggestion for a stocking stuffer, you might consider bolting some $20 rubber Pachmayrs or Hogues on there for daily use. Taking due care with all firearms, I still find little dings, cracks, dents and scuffs on every wooden grip and stock I've ever owned.

    Then, if/when you want it to look that beautiful again, the pristine originals are in a nice little box in your gunroom somewhere.

    Enjoy it!

    Envy here!

    I came across a used one at a pawn shop in Everett, but they won't come down on the excessive price.

    You don't often come across a used Dan Wesson. When you do, they are expensive. They are expensive when new and they are worth every penny.

    Nice present to yourself!

    Yes... except they want more than the new price on say Buds. I gave them a cash offer and my phone number. I'm hoping they'll decide they want to move the inventory...

    But it is not Christmas yet. You better wait and leave it under the tree for 12 more days. Haha
    Very nice.

    Prices on the Dan Wessons really shot up after the fire. Either they are very hard to find or they are marked up.

    Very nice! As mentioned, put a Hogue rubber (fingergroove) grip on it.

    Congratulations. I think you'll really like it. DW makes great 1911's. I had a CBOB and will always regret selling it. It was by far the best 1911 I ever had. I liked it even better than a Les Baer TRS I had.
