Guardian or Off Duty?

Trying to decide between the Guardian or Off Duty. I plan to purchase in 9mm.

Trying to stay with a steel frame since I hope to shoot it a lot, and only carry it part time.

How about some feedback?

The Guardian feels like the smoothest slide to frame fit I have ever felt. I would say it is perfect. I have not even held an Off-Duty. So, it would not be fair to dispariage the Off-Duty. The Guardian is fantastic.
