    Time for a new pistol. Choices are G19 gen5 or the Hellcat. Different worlds size wise I know but those are the two I'm interested in. Have G26, 45 & P365. Technically not a need gun but you can never have too many. Decisions...
    What say you all?

    My Rule of Thought......
    If a “Fun Gun” buy whatever....
    If a “Purpose Gun”, then “What’s the Purpose?”....choose/purchase what solves the purpose.

    I'd go for the classic 19 since you've got small 9mms already.

    If you want to carry it, get the Hellcat. If you don't want to carry it, get the Hellcat.

    Glock 19, Gen 5

    You only live once. Just get as many as you can.

    I’d hold off on a new gun mode until the “bugs” get ironed out.

    I don't buy polymers much, but I do plan on getting a Hellcat.

    I recently held a Hellcat for the first time while picking up my latest 1911. The grip, size and weight were really terrific. However, it was the incredible sights that made up my mind. They seem outstanding and very fast and easy to pick up to my old peepers.

    I will be picking one up in 2020 for sure.

    I’d buy just about anything but Springfield , seems about everyone has forgot about them selling the 2A community out a few years ago.

    Since you have the 365 get the G19! I think everyone should own at least 1 G19.

    I'm going to stay out of this one. I wouldn't take a Gen 5 for free.

    I'd get the 19.

    Don't have much use for anything the size of the Hellcat

    since the OP has to ask Get out of your comfort zohne . How about a 1911 !! Maybe an alloy framed 4' or 4.25" or range use target model . Or maybe a optic ready P320 X5 OR build your self an AR15 pistol or longer rifle /carbine OR make up your own mind .

    I haven't shot it enough to give a good review, but the Hellcat is a nice hand filling shooter. Better accuracy than I thought it would have and it comes on target nice with very good sights. The trigger is your standard safety trigger, could be lighter. I gut 50 rounds FMJ cheap ammunition and 25 rounds of 124 Grain Golden Saber through it, no problems. Recoils is surprisingly light with IMG_3702.JPG IMG_3704.JPG the Golden Saber probably because of the excellent grips. The magazines are probably the highest quality out there. I would get a Uplula loader though. The last rounds are a bit stout to load. So far I like it, but I don't believe in guns this small for EDC. CZ P-01 and CZ 97b for me. A BUG or pocket gun carry.
