i have been extremely happy with the handling and performance of my PT140. i think it is an exceptional CCW. since my wife shot it at the range a while back, she has claimed it as her CCW. i must now either get a second PT140 or get something different. i have recently shot a s&w m&p .40c at a dealer show and am very impressed with it. it is slightly larger than the PT140 but should be a good fit for CCW as well. i can get a stainless PT140 here for $320 (price went up $10 in the last 3 months). i can get the m&p with night sights and 3 mags for $450. i'm not sure i like the m&p that much better for $130, but i also do not like having multiple exact same guns. delimmas and decisions!
