    The Hyve magazines are real Glock mags with the Hyve bottom already installed. I bought a pair a while back when they were in stock. Hopefully, they'll have some new ones ready to go soon.

    Ask and ye shall receive!

    The M1903 and P365XL are basically identical.

    I had posted a picture above of my P365XL and Bul Ultra back to back, but here they are stacked.

    Again, almost identical (although weight and capacity are different).

    Xds .45 isn't bad at all to shoot compared to a lightweight .357, or even my lcr with .38+p. My friend has had one since it was released and it's a fine pistol. His wife qualified in her CCL class with it. That pistol fills the same role as a .44 special bulldog to me except in a flatter package. 5+1 or 6+1 beats all the snubbies out their for capacity.

    I've had an xds 9mm for almost as long. Actually, now I have two of them because I traded a shield for a duplicate xds and while I agree the pineapple texture isn't very good there's been no need to replace it either.

    I like my Glock 30SF.10 rounds or 13 if you choose. Small enough for me.

    I guess I'm too old school for a micro 45.I like to shoot my pistols a lot,and I just couldn't look forward to shooting a 45 in a smaller pistol than my Sig P320 Compact.With full throttle 185's,it's not uncomfortable at all to shoot,and I tend to shoot it very good.My least fired pistol is my Sig P938 9MM.It's a single stack,and very easy to conceal,but with full power 147 grain ammo,recoil is downright nasty to me.To each his own,but a micro 45 is just a lot of recoil in a package that you just can't hold onto very well.

    I could see a 40S&W but a 10mm P365 would not be feasible in such a small frame size... It would have to be a slightly bigger frame, like a P342.5! :rofl: (halfway between a P320 and a P365)

    They’re too hard to shoot well and have lower capacity than 9mm. Add the super high ammo pricing and they’rea tough sell, these days.
