Hey all, I am on my second 365 and I love it. I traded my 1st 365 off because of the born on date....My carry 365 now is a new one with the out side safety.... To me , it is a very good carry pistol, always giving me good responses at the range......

Last week I was pretty sure I was going to get a P365 with manual safety to add to my carry rotation for days I want to carry light. (My other light carry is a P938 and I mainly carry DW aluminum framed officer, CCO, and commanders.) Then I started thinking about the Springfield EMP with a 3" barrel due to the 1911 manual of arms (instead of striker with a similar safety) and 1911 trigger. However, loaded, the EMP will be 10+ oz. heavier than the 365. I shot my buddy's 365 and I shoot it more consistently than my P938.

I know the correct answer is to buy both, but I'm not in a big hurry. While my LGS is open, the range is closed due to Covid, so any gun won't enter my carry rotation until is has a few hundred flawless rounds through it.

The new P365s seem to be GTG. They've revised the striker for the third or fourth time and there doesn't appear to be breakage issues or bad primer smear anymore.
Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

I want desperately to like my P365 but after 2-3 shots my finger is sore just like with a Glock. I went to the expense of having the straight trigger installed. No better. Rented the XL version, same issue. Thought about maybe sliding some rubber surgical tubing over the trigger if there's room. It's accurate and has very low recoil. I tell myself in a defensive situation, I'd never notice it but at the range, it's no fun. I have no problem with the S&W Shield, consequently, I have the Shield in all three calibers. Hate to sell the Sig but don't see any solution.

I think if you were carrying it as your spare mag you would be just fine. Have to agree with you that to have it in the gun defeats itís strong points. For the heck of it I carried my G19 with a flush mag OWN and put 2 33 round spares in my OWB dual mag carrier and it really wasnít uncomfortable at all walking around but it would be uncomfortable if you were really active.

My nephew who is black and kinda hanging with an un-named gang said the dudes would carry 17ís with the 33 round mag in it and just shove it in a pants pocket and let that mag stick way out. You werenít bad unles you had a big stick mag in your Glock. Then the 60 round drums came out. One of the endorsers Carrie 2 17ís with the drum mags in each front pocket and those things would be saging their pants way down but they had their bad *** image to keep up
Meet me, Jesus, meet me in the middle of the air, if my wings should fail me, Lord, please meet me with another pair, so I can die easy. *WWG1WGA*
