I just ordered a Springfield Ultra Compact Stainless with night sights in .45. It is my first .45 but will be a big brother to my Springfield EMP 9mm. I did a lot of research online and found more good reports than bad so I took the plunge. I know that with Springers excellent customer service that if anything is wrong they will make it right. I consider the gun a Christmas present from my wife since I really did not need it but lusted for it for weeks and she just said go ahead and get it. Must be why we have lasted together for 45 years. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone here!
