Thanks for your input, I'm 99.99 % sure I'm going to order it this Monday. Now one of my friends is trying to push me to one of the Kimbers.....Yes, that's more or less the going price. I paid $950 for mine about 8 months ago.
You'll love that pistol... very accurate, crisp break on the trigger. I probably have over 800 - 900 rounds through mine now. Took about 200-300 rounds to break in - never fails now. In fact, last Monday I put another 100 rounds through without a single failure. Very pleased with it and wouldn't sell it or trade it in. It's my favorite weapon of choice for carry.
