Good choice. I have both a CM and a CW and they've been flawless. Recoil spring replacement needs to be frequent on the compacts, less than 1k rounds.

There is a whopping $25 billion in the FDIC insurance fund. There is about $9,000 billion in total US deposits. It's something, but I would not put my "full faith and credit" into that!!!
