I promise you'll continue to lose this argument for as long as you want to continue it. Best thing is just to take our advice and move on from this point.
well said Olympus!

rather weak arguement that does nothing to support your statements.

Hopefully not. I see that you're a new member here. We've all tried to be patient with you and give you hand. If you still can't take the hint then you may want to consider greener pastures.

Now, back to the OP's original question.

Add another one for Dan Wesson!


And the whole thing about anything other than a colt being a knock-off,I'll put my Dan Wesson Valor up against any colt you want.

Can't argue with that. Those Valors are impressive guns. I just can't seem to save enough change to pay for one. And what with the fire at the DW factory, their new production has been halted. I'd like to find a 9mm ECO one of these days.

I got real lucky last December coming up off of about a half a year of out of town work and had some money saved up for something nice for my 21st bday,that coupled with some bday and Christmas card change I scrapped up just enough for it and stumbled upon what must have been the last one in any of my LGS's. haven't seen anything DW since. And the ECO's really sweet indeed. If I was gonna go with a micro 1911 it first pick would definantly be between an ECO and an EMP.
