I've shot the TRP and it's a good gun. I would say it's quite a pistol with a couple of features that are not needed (like an ambi safety).
I do not believe it is a $1400 gun though. I believe there are probably half a dozen other guns out there that are just as good for less money.
If you buy it, it's because you WANT the TRP, not because it's the best value in this category.
