    When my Glock27 (also a Hickok fav) had to go to the factory for repairs (cracked frame Gen3) this Mod.2 was on sale + free mags promo from mfr. = couldn’t resist and everything in this video is true enough, same experiences I’ve been having, all joyful. IN FACT, would have bought this instead of the Glock way back then (7 years ago) and probably been happier, spent much less on tweaks. That said, I know and agree .357 mag/sig & .40 are now considered superior but just a tip of the hat to .45 making almost a 1.00″ hole when tested against all others. Most only come within 55-75% of that large.

    This money spent has brought tons or fun + Crimson Trace has honored this Mod.2 over even their favorites (Glock) by issuing this month a GREEN laserguard to fit it … not for Glock subcompacts … WOW, slap in face.

    Huge fan of your videos and your my go to for feedback. I really enjoy your videos with Springfield. You seem to be most accurate with those pistols. Can we please get more reviews on those firearms?

    Great video, thanks. Really like Springfield. For capacity and power, also like the .357 Sig.

    Thank you for sharing what is obviously your passion for honest, simple, straight forward analysis of firearms. Your reviews have prevented me from making costly mistakes in deciding what to carry in transition as a civilian CCW permit holder. Big-time fan…..Retired
