Thanks for the kind words. I really like the SX3 and have used it for everything since last September. I have not put the SX2 through the same process, so I'm not sure I'm really qualified to compare them. They both have excellent reputations for reliability in the field. The X3 is lighter. slimmer and very well balanced. Internally, they are just about the same except for some lightening of the magazine tube, etc.
My father was a professional fighter. I became a fight fan as a child. I grew up in the Louisville, KY area watching Cassius Clay and saw all of his fights both amateur and professional. My Dad taught one of his trainers, Don Asbury, who later became a professional referee, to fight. Joe Martin, another trainer of his and also a police officer in Louisville, was a friend.
I lost interest in boxing several years ago when the quality of fighters (I only followed the Heavyweight fighters) declined to about the same level that it was in the early 1960's when CC revived it.
Other than my conversations with Pat over the years and discussing his interest in MMA, I really have no knowledge of it. I've devoted so much time to the shooting sports in the last several years, that at times I don't feel I've kept up with much of anything else.
