Since purchasing my 995ts and loving it, I have spent quite a bit of time on this forum reading about and viewing photos of everybody's pistols. While at first I thought they were quite unappealing, they have grown on me. I don't remember whose pistol with the polished frame it was, but I saw a photo of one and my mind was made up. I have to get me one. Then I saw the thing meister grips and my decision was further solidified. My only issue now is this. 40 or 45. I have guns in both calibers so I already have ammo. I don't need another 9mm so it is down to these two calibers for me. Please feel free to weigh in with your opinion. I'd like to know if anyone has a reason to go one way or the other. I wish I could find a used one that already has the polished slide, I'm nervous about doing that but really liked the look. Tomorrow is going to be an exciting day.
