You are gonna love it!!!! I puchased mine about 6 months ago. Qualifying with it is no problem. I have been carrying it to work every day. I would advise you to invest in a couple of 7 round mags, it makes the grip a little longer and more comfortable. The accuracy and dependability ( with any brand of 45 ammo ) shocked me. Springfield scored BIG with this one. The only down side that I can see is the fact that there are not alot of OWB holsters available yet.
