    Swung by the range this morning. Dropped 300 more rounds through it. Up to 600 rounds now. Mostly crap range ammo and 50 rounds of Federal HST. I shot entire mags of HST. Shot the HST interspersed with cheap ammo. This thing has not had one issue or failure yet. Sights are great. Shoots a little low but I’m used to it now.

    I’ve been shooting the Sig 12 round mags exclusively as they feel better and I shoot better with them. I picked up a crossbreed mini tuck and you hardly know the thing is on your hip. Highly recommend this gun.

    I do really hate how the sights are regulated, but other than that I love mine a great deal as well.

    A fella at the range let me run a few rounds through his the other day. He’s only at 800 or so rounds through his but he also reports no issues.

    Sweet little guns. Shoots much better than it should for it’s size!

    I got to shoot a buddy's P365 yesterday and compared it directly to my P938.

    Bottom line, I loved them both!

    The P365 is a sweet shooter, and has a great trigger. To me, I felt that the perceived recoil was about the same between the P938 and the P365, although my shooting buddy thought the P365 had less.

    Looked at the cases from each, and the P938 had ZERO primer swipe whereas the P365 had its usual large amount.

    His gun had about 1,200 round through it.

    We shot both the 10-round and 12-round magazines, and I though both would give me a decent purchase on the grip, but as others have reported, I preferred the 12-rounder.

    We fed it some of my Federal HST 147 gr. +P carry ammo, and it ate it up just fine. This is my preferred SD ammo for the P938 as well. Both guns shot it very accurately and reliably.

    Next up we tried some of my handloaded 124 gr. RMR JHP loads (multi-purpose loads or whatever they are calling them nowadays). I load these at 1.06" with Titegroup at about 131 Power Factor. Once again, both guns ate these loads without issue, and we were nailing 8" steel plates with reckless rapid-fire abandon at 10 yards.

    We had just finished an SCSA match in Super Hot, Humid weather, and we both pretty drained. I would have loved to shoot at 25 yards or more, but I think after all of the back-and-forth testing between the two guns, we were just done.

    I am pretty impressed with this little gun. It was nice that it just kept shooting with the 12-round mag where the P938 was empty way before I was ready for it to be empty.

    I am not sure that I am ready to ditch my P938 yet, but I was pretty heavily impressed with what I saw.

    I shot mine again today with three different loads, full power 90 Gr JHP, full power 124 Gr JHP, and 124 Gr plated plinker. Never a hiccup. Ran probably 75/80 rounds through it. Loaded 10, chambered one, topped off the 10 round mag. I did not shoot the 12 round mag. While it feels a little better because it's longer, I don't necessarily prefer it over the ten rounder. I'll likely continue to carry it with the ten rounder in it and a backup 12 rounder, if I even bring the extra mag. Ten rounds is plenty.

    I have figured out that if I shoot one handed with a very loose hold the lower powered plinker load will occasionally fail to lock the slide back, just not enough juice. Not surprising with a short light slide/stout spring set up.

    Still loving it. :)
