I'm having a hard time making a decision here, and though I think I've considered just about everything, I'd love to run it by you guys and get your opinions. I've been saving for a Dan Wesson CCO for 6-8 months now and I finally have the cash. On top of that, I received a bit for Christmas, so now I have around $1700. I'm really torn between a couple choices regarding what I can do. What I'm looking for is the ideal 1911 for carry, preferably in a lightweight CCO configuration, but possibly a straight commander. Option #1 - Dan Wesson CCO & Kahr PM9 If I purchased the DW I'd have enough left over to add a bit of cash and purchase a Kahr PM9 for Jenny to carry. I've been wanting to get Jenny a carry pistol for some time now, but she hates the P3AT and we haven't had the extra money to swing a Kahr. If I went this route both her and I would be set as far as carry guns go. Option #2 - Fusion Lightweight CCO I've heard nothing but good things about guns from Fusion and I can get one for around $1700 with the options I want and the IonBond finish. My worry here is whether the price difference between the DW and the Fusion is worth it, considering my limited budget (I have to save quite a while for anything I want). In head to head comparisons they say the fit & finish of the Fusion is that of a custom gun, but they shoot within a small fraction of an inch of each other and reliability is the same. The main benefits in my mind would be the IonBond finish and the warranty. I really despise holster wear, and I hear great things about the IonBond finish, but it's over $300 on the quote I received from Fusion. I'm not sure if it's worth it, though if I got the DW and the finish wore off it might cost me near that to get it refinished, and in the end it would still be a production gun. The warranty is also nice, lifetime vs 3 year, but what are the chances I'd need warranty work after 3 years? I could probably save up and buy the Kahr in the next two months if I went this route. Option #3 - Used Custom 1911 (Ed Brown, Wilson, Etc.) I've seen a number of 1911's from the high end 1911 manufacturers up for sale around my budget. Again, I'm not sure how much better these guns are for the increase in price when it comes to real world use. Whatever gun I choose will be carried daily, not put on display above the fireplace. What would you guys do?
