Hi, guys. Been on the forum for awhile, but haven't posted much outside the gunsmithing board. Had to just say that I keep hearing more and more about the DW guns and that folks who own them seem to love them, and that they experience very few problems. That, on top of the fact that I REALLY like the aesthetics of the DW pistols, may keep me lurking over here a bit more. I look forward to the eye candy and being a lurking reader.

Best,
Jon

Just don't take the COTEP and joking seriously. Dave Severns is a good source for a "relatively unbiased" opinion on things (he sees lots of different things in his business).

Some people are starting to consider DW's "potato chip guns" (can't have just one).

See, that proves just how "in the dark" I am. I didn't even know that Mr. Dave was even involved with these guns until I read his post here (after I posted) about the 2010 lineup. I'm already familiar with Dave (not personally, but through his absolute guru status on the Gunsmithing board) and have learned that if he says something it can be taken to the bank without further review or inquiry.

Best,
Jon

You need a DW.
You are very knowledgeable about the 1911 and bring up great ideas, questions and suggestions in gunsmithing section. Your presence here would be beneficial to all the guys and gals.

Thanks for the welcome, guys. Lordy, I can't go buyin' any more pistols - already burned up my "buy myself a Christmas present" money on a bunch of tools and that Caspian Damascus slide and Ti receiver I'd been wantin' for so long. (a BIG "cha-ching!) I'd love to find a DW here and shoot it. I think "Tturner" lives here and has one, and maybe I can coax him into a range day. In the meantime, I'll enjoy reading and learnin' about these guns from ya.

Good to see ya, Steve.

Best,
Jon
