I bought a Stainless Springfield Champion last Thursday, and let me be the first to say I love this pistol. I was looking for something to carry when CCW goes through in January(hopefully). I was looking at a Kimber Pro carry when I came across the Champion. It was love at first sight, and with all the extra features the SA came with the decision was easy. I must say my wife was less pleased with the purchase than I, but states she feels safer with a pistol in the house, though she still has doubts about the need to carry concealed. Sorry about the length, I just wanted to share my excitement with others. I have shot the pistol 3 times bringing my total round count up to 300. It has been utterly reliable and feels so solid.
