    I’m getting the itch for another 1911. I’ve been wanting a specific limited run Dan Wesson Valor for a while now.

    I’ve also been thinking about the Wilson Combat EDC-9, which starts at about a third higher in price than the DW.

    Unfortunately, I can’t afford both right now. But, I could swing either.

    DW Pros: .45, $$
    DW Cons: 8+1

    WC Pros: 15 or 18 rounds
    WC Cons: 9mm, $$$

    What do y’all think?

    I'd go with the WC EDC 9MM...more ammo capacity

    Personally, I would always go with .45 over 9 mm.

    Take a look at Guncrafter's 1911's. The best craftsmanship I have ever seen in a pistol. Noticeably better than Ed Brown or Nighthawk. For carry, their CCO is fantastic.

    Most accurate 1911 I own.

    I've loved every single 2011 I've ever even held. No question, if it were me, I'd get the EDC-9.

    I've fired 2 of the so far, and they are, imho, every bit as good as as most of the custom ones.

    That little Wilson Combat is a nice looking pistol.

    WC would be my new primary handgun.

    DW would become a BBQ gun/heirloom shooter for my son.

    I looked up the price tag on her. See what you mean about a Con on that!

    Here. Buy one of these and fulfill that urge for pennies on the dollar.

    (I like the WC, especially if somebody else is buying)
