    I just bought a Dan Wesson Bobtail, and I'm very impressed with it. It's accurate, fit and finish are great, no tool marks inside, the trigger is simply outstanding at about 3.5 lbs, and most important, it feels great in my hands.

    CZ/Dan Wesson make fine firearms. I looked at purchasing a Bobtail Commander when I was looking for a 1911 carry gun. They are hard to find (almost impossible) here in the Richmond area. With the kind of money your talking, I didn't really want to purchase sight unseen over the internet. Ran across the SIG 1911 RCS and fell in love with it. 400 rounds later it is on my hip whenever I go out now.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    The CZ/Dan Wesson's are excellent weapons.

    I own a CBOB. I love it. I doubt that I will ever feel the need to buy another handgun for carry for the rest of my life. I plan on living for a long time! :)

    My DW PM7S is absolutely amazing. If you're looking for a 1911, DW and Fusion would be at the top of my list.

    I bought a CBOB from my CZ dealer (I'm a regular customer, and an addict!) a few months ago. It's a wonderful firearm and the quality exceeds that of any other 1911 I've ever owned... and I've had quite a bit.

    My particular pistol was a factory blem. It has a strange symbol that looks like an upside-down Y about an inch forward of the serial number, which is their BLEM stamp. The only blem I could find was a tiny dot on the frame near the grip panel. The pistol's fit and finish was just as good as the non-blems, so I snapped it up. I paid either $730 or $740... it was a screaming deal.

    If you're considering carrying a CBOB, certainly look into a blem. The savings are substantial, and you won't feel so bad when you run it into a steel doorknob while carrying it.

    The Dan Wesson 1911's are one of if not the best bargin avalible in a semi-custom 1911. My Pointman 7 is an outstanding value (under $800). I have been very pleased with the acuracy and performance. Mine is also a "blem" like scubasteve's but I cannot find any cosmetic issue anywhere on the pistol. My local CZ dealer (near Raleigh NC)gets these in fairly regularly and they go fast. Great value all the way around.

    When I leave the home port:
    S&W 642 Airweight, Ruger SP 101, Colt Detective Spec., CZ RAMI, Kahr PM9, Kahr CW40, S&W Model 10-7, Glock 30, 19, and 26, Browning Hi Power, CZ82, Colt Commander, Dan Wesson PM7, Ruger LCP

    I don't own one but held one for the first time about a month ago. I know will go about the painful saving of money in order to buy one.
    God Bless America!!

    Also bought DW CBOB. Only had time to put 25 rounds through it the other day, impressed by its accuracy. Plans are for EDC.

    Grip panels are too thick for a 1911. Trigger could use a little work, but still better than my low-end Springfield.

    Factory blem, $800 shipped - 1/4" gouge on side of dust cover, model number engraving is not filled in with a uniform black; but the factory blem mark is uglier than either of those blemishes.

    I think the SW 1911PD and Sig C3 Revolution would also be excellent choices.
