I heartily agree! I wanted a Dan Wesson, but could not find one at the time. I did have a Springfield RO available to me but unfortunately decided on the Smith. I bought it in 2015 for $1220 and it was too much then considering it went back to S&W 3 times before it ran right. I actually haven't shot it since 2017, but for some unknown reason never thought of selling. I suppose I should take it to the range one of these days and see how it runs, I only shot about 150 rounds through it when it came back from the 3rd trip to S&W , cleaned it and put it in the safe.
I took mine with me to NY to shoot the Battle of Saratoga a Tier 3 IDPA Match. It jammed on a stage and then a few stages later jammed solid resulting in a trip to the safe table to try and get it unjammed. I never shot it in a big match again. It's been shot a fair amount after that but never in a big match. Pretty much been a safe queen since then end of 2018.
