Range Report: The new Springfield

Took the pistol to the range yesterday, put 200 rounds through it.

Didn't have a single problem out of it!! Grouped nice and tight, out to 45 feet. Past that, the groups opened up some, but I think that was me and not the gun.

There's a little more felt recoil on this one versus the Kimber, due to the lighter frame. However, the grip is about a half inch longer, giving more hand/gun contact, which gives a little more control. The Trijicon Night Sights are nice and sharp, instead of blocky, which is better for me.

I'm very happy with the gun, and I think this one might become a permanent fixture. Carrying it today, and I love it.

I'll try to get some pictures later today.

Remember, some people are alive simply because it is illegal to kill them.


God Bless our Troops
