How long will it take for Springfield to release this shooter in a .40 ???
I know that some or many will state that a .40 in this size shooter would make it too "snappy" for them and that follow up shots would be questionable. I have a Shield in a .40 and firing some warm reloads through them do not find them unacceptable as to recoil management. Sure there is more recoil than the same format in a 9mm but every firearm when the round is touched off will produce some recoil. The question is do I want to focus on the "snappy" nature of the pistol or do I want to hit what I'm aiming at???
I'm not a lad who searches out the most recoil available in a pistol but do find that part of the total equation bears more weight for others than it does for me. If the round performs well and is accurate I may find that it fits in with what I'm looking for, and will do this before passing any judgement on the recoil. That comes further down the list for me .....others may and will vary in their own assessment.
I would be interested in the HELLCAT in a .40 and would wonder more about the round count than the recoil level.
I think it’s a dedicated 9mm platform.
if it weren’t, that means HS could have made it smaller and thinner than it already is, which was the whole point behind the gun.
