  1. THR Migration in Progress

    We are at the point where THR is running on the new cluster, and I'm tweaking peformance.  This means there will be the occasional database server restart, possibly some web server tweaks, and maybe even a reboot of the entire server.

    If you run into an error this afternoon, count to 10 and try again.  Odds are the problem was very short lived.  Please note that outgoing e-mail functionality is currently broken.

    Thanks for your patience.

    put approximately 170 rounds through the gun. Shot a combination of Blazer Brass, Remington Golden Saber, and Federal HST rounds. The gun functioned flawlessly and was very accurate. The recoil on the 365 was a bit stronger than that of my G43, which I also took and shot ~50 rounds. I will put another 150 rounds through the gun and will then make it my EDC. I must say the magazine capacity Sig achieved on such a small gun is impressive.

    Shot mine at some steel plates Sunday morning before it got hot here. Sure am impressed with it.

    How many total rounds does that make it for your P365?

    I liked mine fine except for it being too small. The thing that worries me with the issues widely seen (striker breaking, dead trigger) is it seems to happen sometime after typical break in.

    I'm not sure I would be able to trust one for CCW, even though the one I briefly owned shot perfect and still does with it's new owner (who updates me regularly because he loves it so much).

    I hope yours works perfect, it was a nice little gun.

    I don't know, I don't count rounds on guns like some folks do. Easily around 500, nearing 600 I would guess.

    I don't know about "widely seen", for the number of total guns out there it seems more like a small number. Either way, I am happy with mine, and "small" is part of the point IMHO, along with the generous mag capacity. The fact that this small ten round 9MM shoots as great as it does for me is enough to stick with it. Sig will fix whatever real issues are out there. If mine breaks, so be it, I'll get it fixed.

    I beta tested an EMP (Three digit serial number) and it needed to go back to SA, but they made it right and it is one heck of a gun as well. :)

    It's probably more my OCD with these kinds of things.

    If the 365 had been a little fatter in the grip I'd still have mine and probably be carrying it. I'm sure once the issues are ironed out it will be solid and I'm interested to see how the other small 9mms respond to the amazing capacity the sig has.

    I do wonder how the mags will hold up but the ones I had seemed easy to load so I would think pretty good.

    You really wouldn't like the Shield then, which is what my P-365 replaced. The P-365 is far superior for me. I liked the Shield, but I love the P-365.

    Most certainly, they feel terrible in my hands. Also I hate M&P triggers (yes even the 2.0 and yes even with APEX). So the shield is a double loser for me.

    The 43 feels a little fatter in my hands but really the Glock 26 is all the smaller I prefer to go.

    Yes, the Shield grip was too thin even for me, and I have small hands and slim fingers. It was still nice, but the P-365 really hits the sweet spot.

    I've handled a Shield like 6 times and every time I thought it felt way to thin and I didn't care for it. The 365 feels a little better to me.

    The XDs is a better fit for me. The depth from trigger well to backstrap is wide enough that I can make the gun go bang pretty well.

    Thanks much for the report! I’m strongly considering getting one of these. My Shield has been excellent over the last three years, but more rounds for off duty carry would be a good thing.
