    Not one participating range in ALL of New Jersey! The closest one to me is 3 hours away in PA. Is that a lack of support from the ranges (many of whom sell Springfield) or is that a Springfield corporate issue? Come on!! NJ is one of the worst of the nanny states. We need all the help we can get here!! What's a gun-owning guy gotta do to catch a break?

      @NJ2A Member I was raised in NJ and left the state back in '74 in part because of the crime in the cities where my employer would have been located and their hopeless gun laws; only worse place back them was California and that is where I moved from into NJ. When I left NJ I came to Illinois, it is 3 to those two, but at least we finally became the 50th concealed carry state.

    I went to our local range; the rep was very nice and the Mod 2 shot exactly like my two XD-S pistols. I put all five shots easily within the red bull. I own three other Springfields, 2 EMP's and Loaded 9mm. Their quality is now rt up at the top of the list of pistols.
