No, not Former National Security Chief John Bolton.
I was going to ask if you were of Officer Joe Bolton fame that I used to watch as a kid (host of Our Gang, Three Stooges, etc. on WPIX in NY). But that was so long ago I doubt a lot on here wouldn't even know who I was talking about. Anyways jbolton, again congratulations

I have to Thank you for this opportunity! I've carried Springfield since the 70's starting with my first a .45 that I was issued in the Navy. Shot better than the Remington. When the Baretta came out I still carried the .45. Now retired from the Navy, I carry a Springfield .40. This Hellcat is a huge boost for me to conceal and carry more comfortably.
I have wanted one since the first day they came out. I will enjoy sorting through ammo to determine what shoots the best through it. Any recommendations from current Hellcat owners?
Mine has had no issues with a variety of range and self defense loads.
I prefer the standard pressure loadings from Hornady critical defense 115gr and Federal HST 124gr the later of which being my carry round.
The gun handles +p 124gr as well as some heavier 147 and 150 grain loads better than I do. The recoil is not terrible but it increases my shot splits too much for my taste.
Enjoy your new Hellcat!
