    Unfortunately, because of the wintery snow weather in my area, I’ve not been able to take my new pistol to the outdoor shooting range.

    However, in spite of not shooting this pistol I have taken it apart to exam its composition. I can truly tell you that Daniel Defense puts together a high quality precision fire arm.

    I’m very anxious to take it out to the range. Thank you Western Sport.

    PS: I just hope the Government doesn’t screw up our ability to purchase ammunition for this type firearm.
