I saw the 365 at Shot Show, fondled it all 4 days there. Put it on order the second day of Shot from my local store. It came in Last week and I was there to pick it up within minutes of being called.
Today was the first day I could hit the range with it. I spent the morning at the Clark County shooting park here in Las Vegas.I put 320 rounds through it to give it a good break in. Not one problem or failure, it ran flawlessly. This gun is a pleasure to shoot. I had the targets set at 10 yards, and shot nice tight groups, and was easy to get back on target very little muzzle flip. I have extra magazines on order from Sig but unfortunately they haven't arrived. If I had more ammo I would have ran more. Sig definitely has a winner with this gun! After today this gun is not sitting in the back of my safe.........

Ah yes! I too had the pleasure of fondling & shooting the P365 this past Monday at DSRP. I must say it makes me want to sell my Shield! Perfect carry gun. :)

Any issues?
Heard crazy things about firing pins breaking.
Also I'm finding the"newest" now come with Xray3 sights versus Sig Lites

Seems like the more that people get a descent amount of rounds in them, the more consistent it becomes that it really is an issue.

I'm not computer literate enough to know when those vids were made or if those are the original version with Siglites or the revised version I read about online with the Xray sights (big green dot)

I read that FP drag and breakage has been an issue with versions 1&2. In MAC's case he lost the trigger bar just above 1100 rounds. Not good for a CCW or Sig.

My P365 has the green X-ray sights (build date 03/11/2018) and I've shot approx 400-450 rounds through mine so far without a problem using both 10 and 12 rnd mags. I've fed it 115gr/124gr FMJ Blazer Brass, Fiocchi and Winchester RA9T 147gr Talon loads without one issue. I can confirm the primer swipe marks are present, but mine are not as pronounced as those seen on MAC's Youtube channel. Just for the record, I don't normally dry fire my weapons without a snap cap for fear of damaging the firing pins. I can also confirm the P365 is very accurate for such a small pistol and the recoil is no worse than a S&W Shield.

I won’t cc ANY semi auto. I’ll stick with my S&W Airweight snubby.
No failures to feed, no failures to eject, reasonable power & 5 ready to go.

I just picked one up from forum sponsor @NewFrontier (thank you!!)
I was shocked when I compared the size of it to my EDC Kahr PM9. Damn near identical in size but 4 more rounds?!?!?
(Both the Kahr and the P365 are smaller than the Shield - I've pocket carried my Kahr many times!)

I can't wait to get to the range. Maybe I can have my buddy bring his Shield and we can do a comparison video - revive the Nevada Shooters youtube channel.

Picked mine up Monday. Will hopefully get out to shoot it soon.

I originally tried out every 9mm subcompact carry gun I could find before choosing the Kel-tec PF-9 (not everyone's choice, but the thinnest, lightest 9 available - except the DB9 but it doesn't even have a slide stop - and it balances in my hand better than the others). I've subsequently handled each new option as it came out but found nothing better. I finally got an opportunity to handle a P365 a couple of weeks ago and immediately fell in love! Only slightly thicker than the PF-9 but with 3 more rounds, better (and night) sights, and a better trigger...plus I've found that it points better for me out of the holster as well.

I hate the way Sig packages the P365. Why don’t they package them with one 10 rounds and one 12 rounds mags (or 2x 12rounders, 2x 10rounders for commie states). Selling the 12rds mag for a ridiculously high price for a current production item (how much more does it costs to manufacture the 12 rds vs. the 10rds?). I am not a sucker and will not be jumping on the Sig bandwagon soon.

I love freedom: They’re free to market their products as they wish while I am free to spend my money accordingly.

That's awesome! Save the P365 for the folks who want a double stack micro 9mm!! I'm sure it will be appreciated by those waiting patiently for one!! :ROFLMAO:

As long as we’re all happy. LoL. Seriously, I’ve been carrying the Glock 19 for years and don’t feel the needs to “downgrade”.

Oh I knew you had a Glock. You didn't even have to say it. The Glock fan boys are the ones who don't buy anything unless it says Glock on it! :ROFLMAO::LOL:
If Glock put one of these, I would have bought it, even though it said Glock! (y)

Actually, I have more CZ than Glock in addition to HK, Walther, Ruger, etc.... and a “few” Sig (I know, it’s a shocker right?).

Ahh.. this threw me off. So maybe you are on the "Sig bandwagon"

I too have too many brands of weapons. Besides milsurp, I have Remington, Savage, Mossberg, Baikal, a Marlin I think, Springfield, Kahr, Ruger, S&W, Rock Island, Sig - might be forgetting a couple. With the 365 I'm just wanting to get the most rounds possible in the smallest 9mm package. Wish me luck, brother!!

I’ll definitely be picking up the P365 one day too (after they ironed out all of the initial issues). I never considered myself on a particular bandwagon (I love options).

I'm with ya brother (obviously).
Heck I even liked the Taurus Millennium G2 but I found I wouldn't carry it (too thick). I found myself not carrying. So I went back to the Kahr. But this P365, if the bugs have indeed been worked out, is just the ticket!
Bud you bring some ammo and you are welcome to shoot it. If it breaks, better during range time than self defense time!
