    Dan Wesson that is :whistling: Long story short: Had a Kimber, didn't like it. Picked up a bunch of other guns over the past 8 months and decided last week I needed to try another 1911. Picked this up and love it! Have 300 flawless rounds through it so far. Damn thing is a tack driver (at least in the hands of my buddy).

    Only 500 made this year. Forged frame, tool steel fire controls, match barrel, just absolute sweetness!

    When I bought my Heritage, I feel like I got more gun than I expected for
    my $$$$. Thats a pretty good compliment for any purchase. Because of
    that, I have a Valor on order.

    The Heritage is a hell of a nice gun out of the box at it's price. Just wish they did the FS. Kind of like the EMP, at that price, still can't believe these two aren't checkered.

    We're on a higher level, since we have Flat Triggers on ours. :rofl:

    There are Padawans and there are Jedis. :rofl::rofl: We are of the latter.
