    Been reading about it a lot for the last few days and it seems like a better choice than the CBOB I was eyeing. Itll be used as a range gun and HD so a commander sized frame didnt make sense. That and the Valor has a black coating (among other things) which would add to the cost if I wanted it done to the CBOB. The CBOB I handled had an amazing trigger. No take up at all and it was breaking like glass. The PM7 they had was kind of the opposite. There was some creep and wobble to it.

    My dealer is calling CZ tomorrow to see if they have any in stock. Right now I have a gun on consignment so im putting all the money from that to the Valor. Also im selling them a case of 5.45 rounds to bring the balance down even more.

    Here's one guy's opinion of Dan Wesson Valor vs Springfield TRP.

    Call CZ and ask for dealers in the area? Whittaker Guns has two in stock as of yesterday.

    I know it's not long. I wasn't planning on buying right away anyway. This just gives me more time to save up some extra cash.

    The word is that Dan Wesson factory is only pumping out 1 maybe 2 per day because of the extra attention it gets.

    Finally pulled the trigger (pun intended). They had two in stock and i'm keeping the display model. It had a little bit lighter break. Should I grab the NIB one instead? They both had a little creep while the CBOB had no takeup at all. Tax sucks :wtc:

    The CBOB is still sex. I want to get it someday (G19 first though). They said Glock wont be shipping any 9mm's for a few months because theyre moving into a new warehouse.

    Spend the extra dough on the Valor. The coating alone is worth the price difference.

    Exactly. Look at other states that have 6/7/8% sales tax ON TOP of paying state taxes as well.
