    I am thinking of adding a DW Valor or a Baer UTC to the stable as a birthday present... from my wife.

    I keep going back and forth the Valor is more New School vs the Baer being more old school.

    The Baer has a more Semi-Custom mystique...

    I am looking to spend about 1800... if there is something else that would be better. I am putting the Colt up for now, I was going to sell it but I am done selling 1911s.

    What would you get? I looked at some built to spec stuff, but she wants me to have it for my 30th birthday... and I am not going to argue (8/13).

    I'd go with the Baer, quite honestly.

    The Valor is a sweet gun, but I'd go with the Baer as well.

    So I called John....

    Super Nice guy...

    I ordered a gun!

    Getting a 5" Custom Carry with no FCS! He is not a fan of the home FFL which is what mine is... so I may have to find another one to use... I do not trust Target World or the other Shop I know... I will have to call around!

    Anyone in SW Ohio know a trustworthy gun shop?

    I know a great, cheap FFL in Cleveland, but that's a drive for you.

    You guys would test it out and everything for me? That would be great? Does it get a flat trigger that way as well?

    :supergrin:

    I have not heard back so I assume he was able to get a hold of my FFL and it will be going out. I really need a closer guy... but I do not trust the shops to not pull it out and play with it!

    Sweet! I was trying to find a CC without the FCS... to see what I was ordering..looks great!

    The only thing that made me want the DW was the finish, which can always be changed. Not like I can not send the Baer in for Ionbond/Hard Chrome/Hard Hat... sometime later on if needed.

    I would say there is a good chance my first DW is going to be a Guardian 9mm... it will be awhile though!

    Congrats on your purchase you'll be very happy with the Baer, and John is second to none with pricing and customer service.

    Let's see pics once you get the CC in.

    I used target world for my EMP and everything was fine. I do know a person with an FFL who is a family friend, but he usually only does transfers for people he knows.

    Did you know target world has Brown's now? I was quite surprised! We should get together and shoot, I would love to shoot the Baer! Are you going to the Oxford USPSA match? I might come if I can.

    You bet I'll get a flat trigger! We'll just do some quick trigger swap in the car. :supergrin:

    Baer > DW.

    Crazy John is great to deal with as well.

    You have excellent taste.
