    Hellcat

    Anyone here have any hands on with the new Springfield Hellcat?

    I held one at the gun show. Better in my hand than what I expected by looking at the pictures. I have a 365 and don't know if I will purchase a hellcat. I have several Springfield pistols. They fit my hand way better than a Glock.

    One man with a gun can control 100 without one.

    Is the article legit? I can't keep track of what's real anymore. I question everything.

    It's TRUE! IFMA was just four (a Lobbyist, a RRA rep and two SA reps) to fight Illinois SB1657 requiring "State Licensing" for ALL Types of Federal FFLs. IFMA opposed the Bill. Funds were paid to politicians/political Orgs and SURPRISE: SA & RRA get Cutouts so the Bill/Law doesn't apply to them. Once the cutout is written in the final draft, IFMA drops its opposition to the Bill.

    So the consensus is SA/RRA bought their cutout then supported the Bill being passed and opposing the law on all other FFLs in the State.
    The companies were outed for their/IFMA donations and corrosponding change of support. Companies got a lot of heat and then said they didn't want a cutout and didn't know what IFMA was doing or doing it without their approval BUT remember the COMPANIES had their own Reps in a small four person group working an important lobbying effort: nobody believes Companies weren't well informed and approved IMFA action.

    There are a lot of articles on this topic in 2017. Gun companies like all businesses hope the potential customer base has a short memory and the occasional/first time buyer is uninformed.

    I will say I've never purchased a Springfield item new, so I haven't supported them, though I do own 5 or 6.
