    I thought about getting a hip holster (IWB/OWB) but it sits just fine in my back pocket so I'll forego carrying on the hip.

    I digress. Desantis has a 20% off sale going on so I picked up a Pocket Tuk holster for the heck of it. Will see how it works out.

    I played with a 365, but, I didn't think I could justify it because it's slightly larger, and heavier than my Kimber Solo, but, I ran across one at a price I couldn't refuse, and it shoots really well, but, has an 8-9# trigger pull, whereas my Solo is only 5#.
    That said, I'm picking up another 365, this weekend, because, out of the hundreds of pistols I've owned and fired, with a little bit of rubberized Talon grip, it fits MY hand better than anything else I've tried.

    That's weird. Mine is just over 6lbs. You might want to get it checked out. Most people rave about the P365 trigger.

    Anyone try the SAS (Sig Anti Snag) model item flush sights?

    I don't like the SAS, but don't tell anyone at Sigtalk. They don't like that sort of rebellion, lol.

    First, it's ported. Unneeded and the negatives outweigh the positives.

    Second, the sight comes from the factory ridiculously off target as evidenced by several video reviews and online testimonies. It's also more difficult to acquire under stress and takes a bit of practice to get acquainted with. Its also is hard to pick up in certain lighting conditions.

    Third, removing the takedown lever and making the slide release incredibly small offer questionable advantages. Some say it helps them to not ride the slide release and accidentally activate it. Fair point.

    Fourth, for most, the regular P365 is entirely adequate and is very snag-free as is. Some who pocket carry say the SAS offers an advantage.

    Fifth, I don't like Sig's preposterous claim in their advertising of it that assumes the real world only consists of very close range encounters and accuracy at longer distances isn't needed. Increased active shooter incidents in public places are happening the "real world".

    But whatever floats your boat. It doesn't make sense for me, so I bought the regular P365. Others may think it's the cat's meow for them. Cool. Buy it.

    Luck of the draw, especially when buying, sight unseen, over the internet.

    Good deal! Glad you like it.

    The one I had did shoot accurate and I really liked the trigger and x-ray sights on the short barrel (don't like them as much on my 226 Legion cause my eyes ain't great) but the thin grip didn't work that well for my hands and I found it too big for my pockets.

    Still, very nice gun and capable for some excellent accuracy with a very nice trigger.

    That is really odd. My .45 Shield has a 4.9-5.3 lb Trigger and my P365 feels lighter. Not as nice but lighter.
