Couple Colt - a Sig - a Smith

Quarantined myself to the range for a couple hours Friday.

Tested out my new Sig P365 9mm. Ran like a top with a variety of ammo. Blazer Brass 115gr FMJ, Remington UMC 147gr FMJ, Speer Gold Dot 124gr HP and Federal HST 124gr JHP.

Although I didnít shoot it as well as my 1911ís, at least Iím able to shoot it better than my Airweight, itís more pocket friendly too. Might do a trigger swap, but for now, itís a solid challenger for my EDC pocket pistol.

Took along my garage gun, a Bodyguard 380. Itís a garbage piece of jam-o-matic, but I can always rely on it for malfunction drills. The gun store owner told me that inexpensive pocket pistols are flying off the shelf. I thought about asking him if he wanted to give me $20 bucks for it, but I didnít want him to be insulted, so Iíll just keep it as my untrustworthy training pistol. Heck, I might even get lucky and attempt to fix it.

Hadnít shot my Colt TALO Armed Forces .45ACP pistol in 8 years. Even though it hammer bit the crap out of me for the first couple mags, I readjusted my grip and shot it fairly well. My eyesight has greatly diminished since I qualified expert while in the USN, but the front sliver GI sight proved to be sufficient. Iím impressed with how well that pistol runs, regardless of magazines.

Been 3 years since I shot my Colt Custom Shop .45ACP Railgun. Even though I only shot it from 7 yards away, it was a good result for me, especially since 20 rounds were quick double taps. That pistol is just an absolute hammer. Puts a smile on my face every time I pull the trigger. I probably sound like a broken record, but Dave @ Evolution Armory did a magnificent job on the threaded barrel and barrel bushing fitting.

I need to improve on shooting these small bullet plastic guns, shooting .45ACP 1911ís, is like cheating.

Hereís some pics.

Now that's the right kind of quarantine.

How well do you like the new safety on that Sig P365?

Are you going to put a can on it?

Knowing you, you have one either working it's way through the system. Or at least picked out by now.

I think that everybody has at least one of those "garage guns". I just wish that I only paid twenty bucks for mine.

I carry one of my snubbies around in my pocket from time to time. But I will not pocket carry an auto without a manual safety that way.

Ha, ha. I must admit, prior to purchasing the P365, I did indeed scour the web to confirm that threaded barrels were available.

However, I decided against using it as a suppressor host, because;

1) Iíll never use it as a nightstand gun, because I have much better alternatives.
2) Ditto for suppressed range use firearms, as Iíve got plenty of other options that are way more fun to shoot.
3) itís going to be strictly used as a pocket carry gun. So, instead of range fun, Iím going to focus on shooting it more accurately, testing out different ammo and perhaps improving the trigger.

But, one things for certain, thus far its exceeded my expectations. Itís a keeper.

Great range fun. You make a .45 1911 perform extremely well.....big holes appeared in a small target.


Very desirable Colts you have. That had to feel great to get some trigger time with them.







I keep seeing....over and over again...the virtues and owner satisfaction of those P365 pistols.

I often pocket carry an Airweight J-frame. My accuracy with it is not what it ould be with some practice. That being said...the sights & trigger of a P365 would likely be an instant improvement in pocket carry performance.

I tried the G43 for a while...also used a P938 for a while, too. Neither fit my hand as well as the little 442 with VZ boot grips. My hand just takes a repeatable grip on it. I will continue to practice with it but plan on some P365 rentals to see how it runs for me.
