As a Springfield fanboy and owner of a Milspec, EMP and two TRP's, I don't think that the Loaded is the best value in the Springfield line up. I owned a Loaded black stainless target and while it looked great, the trigger was heavy and the fitting was not the best.
You should be able to find a TRP for 1350-1400 if you want to save a little more money, it will definitely be worth it. Or take a step down to the Mil Spec and have an Ambi Safety installed. Don't be afraid to keep an eye out for a used TRP, you can find them in good condition at reasonable prices, and stainless versions always seem to be a little cheaper. Springfield's warranty is the best in the business.
