    Thanks, it's a fun shooter so far.
    Wait'n for the mercury to inch it's way up above 0 degrees so I can check some of the rounds I got for more than just function. So far the brutal recoil I remember with a Glock 40 I had some years back, doesn't seem as bad.

    If you're looking for a carry from Dan Wesson in 38 Super, I recommend their Guardian. That's what I carry, chambered in .45acp.
    With the FBI switching to 9mm, I thought of getting a Guardian in that caliber ( LOL....just kidding)

    It has a 6.3" barrel. Really helps a lot with the recoil and can add 30 to 60 fps.
