I put 50 rounds through one today my buddy had over. First time I got to shoot the 365 and I've gotta say it's now on my short list. I was very impressed that said I'd probably run it with the 12 round mag as it was still small and much easier for me to shoot in that config.

Overall though the reason it's so good is it's so small. The glock seems to just be a bigger gun overall which doesn't make much sense to me as a competitor.

Take care

Luke

    A little interesting that they have chosen to build a larger size P365.  I believe that it is the same basic size/weight as the 320 compact.  I think it is redundant, but for marketing it will probably be a winner.  I was looking at the 320 compact legion last week and dreaming....

    I don't need another 9mm.  I can't afford any new guns right now.   :'(  But my heart is so filled want. >:D

    My lgs got 2 P365XLs in this morning and they were gone by noon. Somebody traded a S&W 19-4 in for one....

    My not so local gun shop posted about getting one earlier today which was the first I had heard about it, despite being on Sig's email list.

    Dang.  I won't go there.  I have guns I probably should sell/trade due to how often I shoot them, but I won't.  Don't even ask. 

    I am still in love with my p365.  But the small size with out the penalties other small guns seem to suffer with is why I love it.  I would have to handle the xl to see if it is better than other compact size 9mms.

    I like the idea.  Looks like the P320 X-Carry only a little smaller in the grip - which addresses my only complaint about that pistol.  I like the flared mag well and the beavertail grip treatment but the idea of an optic sight on what is essentially a concealed carry pistol seems a bit silly to me.   :shrug

    I really like RDS on pistols, but I am like you and do not know if they are carry ready. I think maybe a few more iterations of RDS on pistols and I might adopt it.

    Worst comes to  worst, a bad RMR is a ghost ring....see meat in the aperture and pull the trigger.
    At "classic" SD ranges you should be fine, nyet?

    I like the idea of some sort of an optical sight/rds on a small carry pistol.  I think that it can be a real force multiplier, and fewer things to muck around with while under stress is a good thing.  I am waiting for the price to come down on the small good rds for putting on a carry pistol.  But I am a cheap skate. 

    I really like rds on the pistols that I have put them on, it is like installing an easy button.  I used to hunt snowshoe hares with a browning buckmark with a rds on it.  I would shoot as many as my buddies with iron sited .22 rifles.

    Well, I can see the points you've all made about this type of sight system but it seems to me that maybe a light/laser module might be more useful to me on such a pistol.  Being able to see where your pistol is aimed without having a good sight picture seems like a good idea and those new SIG night sights are really pretty effective for when you do have a good sight picture.   :hmm

    I'm just a dirty luddite and miserly to boot. I like standard handgun sites. I am lucky to conceal what I can now, I don't want any more odd angles, corners, or squares to print in clothes, add weight, or cost to what I've already got.

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.
