    Between the 320's and the 2.0? I have 3 - P320's, Compact, Full Size and an X5. All with red dots, all 9mm. 5" 2.0 also is 9mm and has a red dot. I'd rate the 2.0 equal to the full size P320 for accuracy. I shoot longer, heavier guns better, so the 320 compact is a notch below for me. The X5 is more accurate than the 2.0, but not by a whole lot. With the Apex FF trigger, the 5" 2.0 is an amazingly accurate gun.

    Yeah, it's tempting. I really like the flat triggers on my X5 and 2.0. But once I got the X5, I just don't shoot my other 320's much, so probably won't put any money into them. Not that the curved Sig triggers are bad. Just more of a consistency thing.

    Yeah, no point if you have the X-Five already. Now that I have handled an X-Carry, I think I need to trade my 320 compact in for one.

    Speaking of best bang for the buck handguns, I think you really get a lot of features with the X-Carry at $670.00.

    Everybody knows you're supposed to install an Apex trigger when you buy a S&W. I think it's federal law now.

    Husker, I believe that OldVet was being a bit sarcastic -- S&W Shield 2.0 models don't need an Apex trigger kit. It's strange to me (and perhaps him) that it seems to be fashionable.

    I had David of Bowie Tactical Concepts put his LX trigger job on my 2.0 .45 Shield because he was doing some other work on it anyway. It did make a noticeable difference in the already-excellent factory trigger, but not enough to cause me to spend the money to have him do another 2.0 trigger for me. No, 2.0 triggers don't need anything, IMO.

    Yeah, that's what I thought at first too. Then I bought my first 320, and found out different. Is the 2.0 trigger horrible? No. Can it be considerably better? Yes.

    Nah, I'm not in the market for another 9mm. I have a service-size Beretta M9 and a little Shield 9. I can work the triggers just fine on both of 'em -- rounds go where they need to go. Same w/ my larger caliber revolvers. The triggers are different, but work just fine. Guess I'm not too picky.

    Im still here guys, and appreciate your input. I ended up trading my 2.0 compact for a Canik TP9 SFX and like it alot better. the trigger is far and away better than in the 2.0 Compact and its just more fun to shoot. For my next one tho, I will look into the P2022 thanks to your suggestions, or maybe a P226.
