Picked up a Hellcat OSP on 7/9/22 & also got myself a 15 round magazine
I submitted the receipt & serial & info to the Gear Up 2022 promotion o Wednesday 7/20/22

Got Confirmation from SA about the Gear Up Offer
Took 8 hours

Dear Hellraiser :ROFLMAO:
Thank you for participating in Springfield Armory®'s 2022 GearUp.
We have received your submission for your HELLCAT 9MM 3" PISTOL, BLACK OSP with serial number ****. Your submission will be processed shortly.
Your confirmation number is **
If you feel you have received this e-mail in error or have any additional questions about our GearUp promotion, please contact our Customer Service Department at 800.680.6866 or at [email protected]

Looks like IT MIGHT just happen for ME Too...
I have never won anything in my life or gotten anything I didn't work for

Only took two minutes to fill out the form & upload a photo of my receipt

That will give me a total of five magazines which should be all I will ever need

I have this thing about getting at least five magazines for every handgun I have

Still think the Hellcat was a better option than the SIG P365
Understand I have a Glock 43X & a M&P Shield 2.0
The Hellcat really is that good

I have a Bulldog Paddle holster for a M&P Shield that claimed it would also work for the Hellcat so I gave it a try
Loose at the top so two strips of Velcro down next to each sight channel & the Hellcat fits & latches in great now
I have a Cy-Tac also for the Shield & the Hellcat comes loose where the Bulldog doesn't
They look like they were both made by Fobus
Pictures to come later on when I make it down to the dungeon

Picked up some batteries today LR41x3 for my .223/5.56x45 bore sighter & CR2 for my Vortex Strike-Fire II & two 1632 lithium for upcoming SIG Romeo Zero red dots
90 degrees today & youngest son is mowing the grass @ 4:30pm

Catch you Later

The Bulldog paddle holster for a M&P Shield lists that it also fits the Hellcat
It WAS a bit loose like the Hellcat's slide is a bit shorter & the trigger guard a bit smaller & shaped a bit different
I put two pieces of FDE Velcro down the holster at the top on either side of the sight channel & now the Hellcat slips in snug & latches in place perfectly
Also have a Sticky for the Shield that works well with SA Hellcat
NEED A GOOD HOLSTER FOR THE HELLCAT!
Here's a couple pics I took of the holster & my flat, thin carry guns = Hellcat + M&P Shield & Glock 43X
New 15 Round Hellcat magazine loaded up & ready for the range
Got a .223/5.56 laser cartridge today & used it to get the Vortex Strike-Fire II scope on my AR-15 sighted in & a new CR2 battery for the scope
I think the Hellcat weighs the least of all three loaded up & it has 13 rounds, Shield has 8 & Glock 43X holds10

Congrats on the new Hellcat. I am jealous!! Now you need at least a couple of the 15 round magazines. Once I get my Hellcat, I am going to get two of them.

Joe
Thanks @Joezilla
I picked up a 15-round magazine at the LGS for $35.81 but somehow prefer the feel of the 13-round magazine, see above on the package shown from the rear
It just fits my hand better even though the 15 is a bit longer
I hope to get the three from SAs Gear Up + I bought two 11 round magazines from Omaha Outdoors on Gunbroker for $22ea with both floorplates NEW
https://www.gunbroker.com/item/941329186
That will give one of each length & style available, they should be here this week on Wednesday 8/3/22
The flat 11 might work better for pocket carry in a coat during the winter, matters which coat but always use that sticky/pocket holster when doing that

Constitutional Carry came to Indiana on 7/1/22 & I have 4-5 smaller handguns that have been going with me everywhere
Carried the Glock 43X this morning to the grocery store
Usually the Hellcat, Glock 43X, M&P Shield or Ruger SP101 go out with me
Have been thinking about thinning the heard of the bigger handguns I have S&W SD9, Glock 19X, Hk USP Compact, Hk P2000sk, SIG P320-X
Also have a SIG P365XL coming with a Romeo Zero Red Dot
And have another Romeo Zero coming for the Hellcat OSP, I bought for $80 NEW...

That's great! I have been EDC my Shield 1.0 in 45acp with at least 1 extra mag. I just got back my Glock 48MOS yesterday. I had to get the red dot worked on and tightened down correctly. My gunsmith did it for $30. I will be EDC with it some too. However, the handle is a bit long so I have to pick and choose when I carry it and with what shirts. That's the main reason I want a fully capable 9mm gun that is just a bit smaller in the handle area, hence the Hellcat. Even though Texas has constitutional carry also, there are still places that frown on carrying anything.
