Found one for sale a couple months ago. Love it. So does my wife so she may adopt it to replace here little revolver. In that case I think I will buy another one. Still want to get the BB pistol that is the same size etc.

Good gun, I've had mine for a few months now and no problems at all, eats any ammo I shove in it as well.

I will say this if you don't want a butt load of problem right out of the box take the time to clean all the shipping oil out and then lube it with good lube BEFORE your take to the range. I use Slip-2000 grease on the slide and Hoppes oil on the barrel and it's been faultless. But over on the Sig board I see many MANY people bitching because their new gun hangs and will not cycle back into battery, and guess what they did? Opened the box and shoved in a bunch of rounds and started shooting. One of the first things in the manual is to Clean the gun BEFORE your first shots.

I picked up one last month after looking for a Glock 26.5 locally. I made the right decision by going to Sig 365. Went straight to the range and never cleaned until after 300 rounds without a hick up. Well worth the purchase!

Shot the gun with a small group of 5 and 1,000 rds. Nice gun, reliable, nice size.
Con's- The narrow space between the grip and receiver was not a good fit for 3 of us. The only failures we had were what we believed to be user error of riding the slide. (which we warned all users to NOT do before shooting). We had 6 failures from this.

Shooting was very comparable IMO to the Ruger LC9S.Atually like the Ruger Better for handling. The take down Pin was very bulky and not a good design especially for a carry gun. Shooting was accurate enough for close range to 10 yds, but not as good at 15yds as other guns in the same class and seemed to have more twang the more you shot it. The gun seemed to have a good amount of muzzle flip but not that bad. I am thinking that Sig noticed this and hence the Ported barrel of the SAS coming that they just announced.

My advice would be to try it out before Purchase to make sure it is the right fit. I have a large size hand and this gun would never work for me with the grip and receiver. Small hands should be no problem. JMO

I've shot a 365 recently and did pretty well for a first time with a new gun. Want to get one eventually but not sure between the standard and xl.

Great Gun!

I got an LCP 2 and a P 365 at the same time, the 365 has been flawless. The LCP 2 on the other hand has had about 15 various Failures to feed, eject and stovepipe jams in about 600 rounds and just today the extractor flew out of the gun at the range on my second mag. I really wanted to like the LCP 2 because its so easy to carry, and I was getting fairly accurate with it. Oh well, I guess you get what you pay for.

I love mine carried on me OWB to the movies tonight to see Midway with an extra mag in my pocket
In an ammo armor mag carrier

Most comfortable gun to carry I think. I have 124gr HST standard pressure in mine and feel 100 % confident in both

More I shoot mine the more I like it......FREEDOM is a good thing thanks to all the vets on here!

Performance One 124g XTP for carry,

Whatever brass case ball ammo is cheapest for plinking, or range.

I shoot the P365 better than the LC9s. The LC9 trigger bites my finger. I took the trigger out and polished the sharp edges and that helped a lot.

I was planning on either getting one of the small ones or the Shield. The Shield won out, due to price and weight, (I don't mind a bit of heaviness if recoil is less of an issue) but I REALLY liked the feel of the 365. It sounds like a fantastic little gun. Fits my hand perfectly, which is hard for me given that I have tiny hands.

The XL is a LITTLE bigger, which to me kind of defeats the purpose (at least for me; for you taller/larger people i'm sure it's still extremely concealable) but it sure looks great. I wonder how those new sights are working out for Sig so far? Where the sights are kind of 'buried' into the slide? Looked like an interesting concept

Looks like the Springfield Hellcat is also a great weapon. Have held the SAS and cannot get used to the sights.

Hog Leg Hauler will become famous soon enough
Anyone of ya who have fired the Sig 365 and the Springfield Hellcat have any range comparisons and handling to share. Have read a bit about each in mags and online but haven't handled them both. Checked the Sig out at a local shop, but yet to see a Hellcat. The Sig grip seemed a bit small for me, but only actual shooting tells the story. The Hellcat is reported to have more hand filling grips. Just what I read. Have had a Smith 9mm Shield for around four years, for a smaller semiauto, shoots very well. Dirty little story is that a 1911 grip frame and/or large size revolver Pachmyer grips feel right at home to me.
