    I am just wondering if anybody out there has had a chance to shoot it? I am a Springfield fan and there is no place locally to shoot a gun before you try it. I am hoping somebody out there has!

    I've read reviews of the Defender, which looks like the previous name of the same gun. Seems the shooters liked it- it's great for smaller hands.

    As I read about it, it looked rather like they realized that the .45GAP isn't going anywhere, so they decided to make it available in .40S&W and 9x19, both of which will sell pretty well. One of those in .40S&W might well be a very nice CCW piece for somebody who found a compact 1911 a bit big.
