Oh, and I just noticed you said you want an external safety, which the Springfield does not have. Nor does my Kahr.

I know it don't have a safety but i like the fact that it's got the grip and the trigger safety.. Compared to the Kimber it has no safety features that I'm aware of.. Plus the more rounds compared to the solo...

You can get the M&P with an external thumb safety

I think the model with the external safety are right at $600

Isn't the Solo the one that requires Kimber recommended ammo? If not please correct me. I've read/heard (FWIW) that they are extremely hit or miss as reliability goes.
I own a XD40SC, it simply just works.

I wouldnt think that kimber would recommend certain ammo, then they would have to add another excuse to feed their customers when the gun didnt function properly
