I've never been a huge Sig fan (not that I have anything against them), but at 10+1 in a G43-size package the P365 has my attention.

Has anyone here handled/shot one?
Same feelings. Sorry, haven't handled one though. If I were looking for that class of pistol I'd certainly evaluate the option.

Had a good friend buy one and he mentioned how impressed he was with its accuracy.

I would like one myself - spent a decent amount of time doing my research, now it's just up to how it feels in my hands.

Glock is coming out with a Glock 43X

https://www.gunsamerica.com/digest/rumo ... -capacity/


So I will wait until January/February to make my decision. Not a particular "fan" of Glock, prefer Sig over Glock, but I buy what feels right in my hands, and what others review/think about it as well. If it doesn't fit in my hand comfortably, I won't carry it.


Both options will have lots of aftermarket support, so it really comes down to how it feels in the hand. Any gun can outshoot my capabilities at 25 yards, and I really hope I don't ever have to take a shot, that far.

I have read the rumors about the G43X - I think it would definitely be a winner. Sig apparently had some trouble with the early P365's, but I think they got it sorted out. It's probably best to just avoid the early offerings - I don't think any manufacturer is immune from issues from time to time. I had a Gen 4 G19 with the brass to the face issue, and a buddy of mine had a terrible time with an M&P Shield 45 when they launched.

43x sounds like a winner. I will definitely see how it feels in the hand. (And the waistband)

I just watched that last night. He didn’t mention it, but surely they will offer a traditional black slide option?

Excellent review. Don't care for the silver slide.

Just purchased a Walther PPS M2 and 250 rounds of 9mm ammo from Bownells online at what I think is a great price. $345 total delivered plus another $25 for the FFL fee. Super excited as I have wanted a 9mm for concealed carry and the reviews spoke highly of the weapon. I will post a couple of pics once I get it...

Congrats! Can't wait to hear how you like it. I've heard good things about them - some say it is one of the most underrated pistols out there. Walther Arms, Inc. is here in Fort Smith, AR.

I dont think I've posted this yet, but here's a few:

Top 2 are Spikes Tactical.

Bottom one is a Palmetto State Armory 300BLK pistol.

Sadly, I lost all of these and no longer have them, Mr. ATF man.

Heh. Kind of a joke.
Basically to indicate I no longer have them, so they can't be taken away.

@ctrav

Don't know what you paid for ammo but this seems to be a great price for 9mm practice ammo (walk in local). Certainly less than I paid during the last drought and before I started reloading :)

Congrats on the purchase!
