Thanks! I'm excited I just need to work on my recoil management. When I shoot my glock 19 I still struggle with my follow up shots, hope I can get it figured out.

Hard to say without seeing you shoot, but in my opinion most recoil management problems stem from a bad grip. Here's some videos:

Basically it comes down to a high firm grip on the pistol.

I worked at gander mountain about a year ago and held one for the first time. I really liked how it felt in my hands. I'm a huge fan of extras when it comes to firearms and Springfield goes above and beyond. I love the three magazines it came with, the holster, the magazine holster, the mag loader, the hard case and the best part is the lifetime warranty !

That's a pretty good selling point, or points. When I ask that question often I get in response something about how it feels in the hand. Have you fired one before you bought yours?

I have not. If everything goes as planned, we have a range date set for tomorrow!
