I have both weapons.....the price is well within what I would call a good price on both. You may search and find one or the other a few bucks cheaper or someone will tell you they got their 75B for 445, the prices quoted you are not out of line. If you are getting one for some shooting and then to sit at home the 75B will do that better then most guns. You could use it and decide you like it and want to compete, and not have to get a new gun. The SP-01 Tac is my favorite of the 2 but I like the heavier gun, I have it tweaked a bit for competition. It is a great gun. For what you have described and if it were me I would get the 75 and use the other money in my budget to take the trainig at the range.
