    I am going to buy either a Dan Wesson VBOB or CCO but am having a bit of trouble making my mind up. It is primarily going to be used as a home defense, range gun but I may carry it at times. Give me some opinions.

    I prefere the VBOB. 1911's need some weight to shoot right IMO. The steel V weighs more than the AL framed CCO. If the guns only purpose is CCW, then the CCO may be the better pick. But the needs you listed sound more well rounded and in tune with the V.

    And the steel can be melonited/Hardhatted.

    My DW V has been flawless with Wilson mags. I trimmed the rear edge of the thumb safety back a bit to fit my hand better, and to allow me to grip it even higher without grip safety problems. Be prepared to adjust the rear sight a little. The factory guy that sights DW's in is apparently crosseyed or has a drinking problem.

    Just make sure the bobtail feels good to you. I like the bobtails for CCW, but I'd rather shoot a fullsize frame.

    The 2010 models ave a 0 for the first serial # digit. The 2010 models are indeed better than the 2009's.

    I think it's pretty easy. CCO. The shortened CCO grip makes it awesome to carry while sacrificing only one round. Plus it's lighter in weight. I'll exchange one round for .5in of grip reduction. However, the bob of the grip does knock out the pointy ent of the grip that is the first section to print. SO, you cannot go wrong with either, I would choose the CCO.
