Default Christmas Gift to myself!

From the moment I held it I knew that it would end up being mine.

Dan Wesson Classic bobtail commander

I had a local who was selling it and I had to scoop it up. After striping it once I discovered how tight the gun really is....WOW. I have yet to take it to the range but will be sure to post a report once I get around to it.
