I owned two, both in .40. Haven't really missed them.
You like everything about the gun that I didn't. I hate the Heinie sights, disliked the trigger, thought the grip felt strange. Between the sights and the trigger, I always had difficulty shooting them accurately, particularly with speed or at a distance.
They worked OK, a couple of malfs. Not exactly like a Glock or SIG, but you should find a defense load without too much trouble.
They seemed well-built to me. Since you actually like them, maybe give one a shot if you find it. They are not expensive.
