    Do you think I made an upgrade? Traded my Kimber towards a.... (Picture Heavy)

    Took a trip to the gun store yesterday and I traded in my Kimber Stainless Pro TLE/RL II...


    Towards this....Dan Wesson V-Bob...







    So what do you think? Would you consider this an upgrade?

    With my modest and limited knowledge, I'd say you did real well. I'll be interested to see what some of the more experienced members think.

    I personally think you made a great trade, but then again I want a DW bobtail so badly I can taste it.

    Wonder what kind of a deal they would give me on the wife??!!

    Nice trade, but I noticed that you stated 'towards', not 'for'...

    Definitely an upgrade.

    Is it just me or are the DW 1911s the purtiest?

    There is only one way to find out

    I couldn't really complain too much though because for what they gave me for my Kimber it covered almost 2/3 of the cost of the DW. Granted they only gave me that deal because I am a frequent customer.

    P.S. I'm working on fixing the orientation of some of those pictures

    I of course think it was an impressive upgrade! I do love my DW CBOB... it's the nicest 1911 I have handled, shot, and/or carried to date.

    Dan Wesson is what Kimber wants to be when it grows up. You did good.
    If I gave a crap about what you think about my guns.....it was early this morning and I already flushed it!

    I'll toss in 2 cents from a non-1911 enthusiast...

    I would prefer the gun that's on the mat that your race gun is sitting on.

    Hard to go wrong when you CC a Glock. Simplicity has its' advantages.

    I do agree with you. I'm a Glock guy at heart (I own 6 of them) but I do love and appreciate a great 1911. Here is a picture of the two guns I carry everyday. Glock 30sf (IWB) + S&W M&P 340 (Ankle) shown with a Microtech Ultratech

    Tell me the truth - Do you really have ANY doubt about this being a good deal???

    I would have done that trade without thinking about it.

    Well it wasn't like it was a straight up trade. I had to throw down some $$$ on top of it
