I like the Guardian’s grips, and sights

I like the rail on the Specialist.

Because this will be a trail and wilderness camping defensive weapon, the Specialist has appeal because I can attach a light.  If that is not important, then I’ll get the Guardian. 

I have no experience with Dan Wesson.  Based on the specifications, both seem to be superb pistols. 

The Guardian has more appeal, if it only had a rail.

Your insight will be appreciated.

Easy decision, get both.smile

For your described use, seems you answered your own question, you need a rail for a light so the Specialist would be the choice.  BTW, I love mine.

Anything worth doing is worth doing well.

If a man designed it, and a man built it, then a man can fix it.
