While at the gun range this morning and winding up our shooting I noticed one of the fellows in our shooting group had a Sig P365. I asked him how he liked it and said he loved it, asking if I wanted to shoot it.

I politely declined since we were wrapping up, but he said he would put a magazine in it so I could try it. I took him up on the offer and a few quick first impressions are:

Size: I was surprised how small it was, especially for the capacity

Feel: Short grip but I don't mind 3 finger grips on pistols

Trigger: Very nice

Recoil: Soft shooting gun with no recoil feel at all

Accuracy: Was able to keep the holes close together, although was only shooting from 7 yards away

I probably won't be buying one any time soon, especially after ringing up a new $289 net price S&W 442 on the cc today, but I can sure see why folks who buy them like them.

Once the quality issues that seem to have been too frequent with the early releases gets solved I can see the P365 setting the bar for small concealed semi 9mm pistols.

I have one of the earliest production guns with the X-ray sights and really like it. (Hard for me to say as I don't usually care for striker fired handguns.) Almost 1000 rounds thru it with only one failure to fully close (with a squib Browning ammo load.) Very accurate with less (to me) recoil than a G43. At first it was so small I could not shoot it well but as I have become accustomed to it, it's dead on. I will sell it in the future, when the models with manual safety hit the street. I don't usually pocket carry but will not this one till I get the MS. Not intending to start a war on MS but it probably will anyway.

I can’t wait to get mine out and shoot, gun feels good in hand with extended mag. When issues are ironed out it will probably be my carry gun. By time I can shoot they should have it fixed, I hope
