As a result of his hard work and dedication, his firearms are known for their innovation, indestructibility, and match-grade accuracy.

Like all Dan Wesson 1911s, the attention to detail is impeccable. The perfectly fitted frame and slide feature ornate scrollwork. On the side of the frame, its model name—Heirloom—clearly distinguishes this model as something special. A bronze PVD finish suits this collectible handgun, protecting its metal surfaces and adding a shiny luster that elevates this unique handgun. Black accents on the small parts and mainspring housing further characterize this pistol. Modern G10 grips round out this traditional pistol while adding a secure gripping surface in all conditions.

Patti Miller is one of the most awesome females in the tactical/firearm (or any) industry. Imagine a tall, hawt, dangerous Laura Ingalls Wilder type with cool hair and a suppressed blaster and you’ll be getting the idea. What’s interesting is that in addition to being a willing brawler and intrepid adventuress, she’s also an Ent/Ogier level gardener and a truly badass baker.
