    Well in my quest and research to come back to the 1911 platform I have about driven myself and a couple of forum members insane :crazy:

    The Valor is one pistol that I have always liked but has always eluded me. I "almost" had one a few times, but it didn't work out.

    2 days ago I spotted a NIB unfired DW Valor for sale on another forum by a member with whom I have dealt with successfully in the past. After a few emails asking for pictures and negotiating sales price, we had sealed the deal. Payment was sent yesterday and now I'm anxiously awaiting for my FFL to call and say the pistol has arrived. I wanted a decent pistol to leave as is (for now), to be able to shoot and CCW, and hold me over until my next 1911 arrives. This pistol is new in box and unfired purchased in April of this year.

    I have a set of LD Horned Lizard grips waiting for the Valor here at the house, and now I just need to score me some nice leather for it.

    These are the only pictures I have right now which were emailed by the seller:

    I have settled on the 2 platforms that work "for me" and a 1911 in 45 ACP is one of them. I'll try to hold on to it, and the one that will be ordered soon as well. ;)

    I really like the black Valor. Good snag.

    What other platform do you use? I thought I could be just a one platform guy as well. I cant. Got an M&P I am going to pick up in trade for IDPA SSP and Ive got a M&P9 compact on order.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone, I'm as anxious as a kid before Xmas to get this in and start putting rounds through it so I can CCW it. I also can't wait to see how she looks with the Horned Lizard grips. I will post my own pics and a range report once I get it in and to the range.
