The .38 Super kind of haunts me.
I shot a full sized Kimber in Super .38 a few years ago and thought
it to be very sweet. Those 125 gr. Silvertips really impressed me.
Not much local ammo to be found, but Dealers tell me that they have no
problem ordering it for the guys that shoot it in my valley.

I appreciate the shorter butt for CCW and the DW CCO has an Officer's
A CCO would also be light enough for me to carry.
There has been at least one .38 Super CCO made at the DW factory.
Should they offer them in that caliber for 2015, then they would
join the ranks of the DW Guardians in .38 Super.
A Dan Wesson 1911 is more expensive than a Rock or Kimber, but less than
a Les Baer or Wilson.

I carry a gun, because a Cop is too heavy.

I would pass simply because I prefer carry weapons that have ammo that is readily available on the shelf locally.

Love Dan Wessons, and I'm partial to the CCO form factor - but wrt 1911's, I'm .45 ACP all the way (so far, anyway).
If I were in the market for a 0,38 Super, a DW would probably be my first choice. I see that they offer the Guardian and the Elite Havoc in 0,38, so a CCO could well be in the works.

I'm having trouble figuring out an advantage of the 38 special over the 45 in a 1911 frame. Even the recoil is not much of a problem given the steel frame. But Dan Wesson in the CCO rocks.

38 Super Ballistics Chart | Ballistics 101 shows more velocity and more ME.
About the same as a .357SIG: 124gr 500#ME/1350fs. Lighter loadings in Magtech and Remington: 130gr 426#ME/1215fps.
That makes it hotter than the .45ACP, 9mm, .40S&W (180gr 400#ME/1000fps).
I wouldn't now, but I might have.
.38 super is one that never caught on much beyond certain circles like pin shooters.
Would I buy one? No, probably not. Would I like to have one? Yup, sure would

I have wanted a 38 super for years. I have wanted a Dan Wesson for years. But due to my short attention span, neither have been able to make it home with me.
But if all the planets aligned correctly, I would buy a super DW, especially a CCO. Very concealable and DW does a nice job on fitnfinish.
Already have a Colt Government Model in 38Super so the Dan Wesson would be a nice addition.

It would depend on the price point but I'd surely give it a hard look
What if the Hokey Pokey IS what it's all about?
I would buy a Dan Wesson....
in 45 acp.
No internal lock or magazine disconnect on my pistols!
If I had the money to by a DW it would be a Razorback in 10mm.
The .38 Super haunts me. I'd like to play with handloading for it and shooting the results. I'd prefer a Colt but could be induced to own a Dan Wesson if I sneaked up on it at the right price.
