Springfield Armory has a countdown clock at their “Fiercely Defend” web page teasing a yet-to-be-announced new product. In the background is a major urban city. Under the caption appears the text, “It’s a jungle out there.” We don’t know who Springfield Armory is targeting with this promotion, but frankly, I’m interested.
What could they have in store for us? If I had to guess, Springfield will roll out its answer to the SIG P365. After all, the popular P365 is eating almost everyone’s lunch when it comes to sales of defensive concealed carry pistols. Check out the review I did on it last year if you want to see exactly why.
So, assuming Springfield Armory has an answer to the P365, the teaser certainly seems to suggest an intended purchase audience. After all, plenty of folks who live and work in the urban jungle feel the need for armed self defense.
I can’t help but think the social justice warrior community might try to claim a there’s a racial component there in their feeble efforts to find bogeymen at every turn, but that says more about them than it does about America’s gun buyers.
Just because they call everyone they disagree with “racists” and “white supremacists” doesn’t make it true, any more than masked, violent “anti-fascists” are really anti-fascists and not really the far left’s brownshirts.
Why should Springfield care anyway? The social justice warriors of the world don’t buy many guns. And for those rare occasions when the self-styled anti-fascists do buy firearms and go shoot them…well, let’s just say it’s not exactly the Art of the Tactical Carbine.
Springfield makes some very good firearms. Their SAINT ARs serve as very nice entry-level stock rifles. I found their Mod2 series of 9mms among the mildest recoiling 9mm pistols out there. And I love my XD .45.
Yes, Springfield ran afoul of gun owners a few years ago, but they have since become a valued member of the pro-gun coalition in Springfield fighting for gun rights.
I’m eager to see their new product. I would certainly give it a fair review if I get my hands on it…whatever it is.
