went and traded the PT 140 in for a new Springfield Champion LW. I got a 4" barrel, park'ed slide and OD green frame. Night sights and rubber grips. I considered a GI model w/ LW frame , but opted to just buy a better decked out model, rather than upgrade. Haven't shot it yet, as I just got back home. I am excited. Guess I need to start searching for holsters and start breaking it in. Thanks all who replied to my previous inquiry.
