I say get it. I have the full size .45 and a friend of mine has the compact .40 for carry. They are good feeling guns and shoot very well. The double action trigger is smooth and the night sights are nice. Good guns overall.

"You cannot exaggerate about the Marines. They are convinced to the point of arrogance, that they are the most ferocious fighters on earth - and the amusing thing about it is that they are."
