Default Do I need to be talked out of this purchase?

I am considering buying a Dan Wesson ECO .45 as a graduation present/ Christmas present to myself lol. So, do I delay the gratification or just grab it while I have the chance? Also, should I consider any other officer sized 1911's such as the defender or Spartan III? I am basically fishing for someone to come up with a great rebuttal otherwise I don't think I will be able to restrain myself

By the way, I need to know today so anyone with experience with the eco please chime in.

Thanks,

Getem

Grab it now, justify it later.

I think you know better than to ask us if you need to buy another gun or not. Lol.

Of course you need to buy it.

There is no such thing as a rebuttal to a Dan Wesson ECO. Buy the damn thing!

A firearm normally does not depreciate.
A new car does.

Bought myself a Dan Wesson Valor Bobtail for my 21st, out-f***ing-standing gun!

Still jealous about your Eco though
