Just looked and found some factory blemished Dan Wesson guardians for 1200 on gunsamerica. Sound like a good deal?

Have you price compared on Buds online? Price seems high for the Sig.

The Guardian would make a fantastic carry gun as well since it has an alloy frame.

Hey I'm buying it for myself lol,if I recall the only gun I ever asked of you for a bday gift was a pellet gun lol. How much would it have thrown u off if you said "hey there little Jstrong,what do you want for your 12th birthday?"

12 year old me "Well Pops a nighthawk would be nice,or a colt Wiley Clapp commander. Oh wait,hmmm I guess a Dan Wesson would do in a pinch... A handle of makers mark would also favor a set cocobolo grips for it too. You can put them in my christmas stocking."

Hey, I'm proud of you.. "The wants" are a damn site better than "the gimmes".

Yep reading to your kids does pay off later in life.

The DW blemished are great values as I can't find the blemishes. Usually it's the way a # looks or something that small. Excellent buy. The way to go.

I believe this I'd the way ill go,there's literally nothing I can find about the guardian that I don't love. It's the most beautiful handgun I've seen.

Well boy, I think it was when you came to the dance with me, then went home with your mom.
