    NO!!!

    I do not need another .380.
    Repeat: I do not need another .380
    Repeat: I do not need another SIG .380

    Lord help me. If they come out with that P365 in .380 I might buy one anyway. Or give it a good look.

    You should ask Sig, not me!

    I will say that Sig, more than their competition, seems to come out with more models, and more completely different models than their competitors. They also seem to drop models more quickly than their competitors when they find out they don't sell. The P250 was pretty innovative. That led to the P320, but the 250 was dropped quickly, even though the only difference was the firing mechanism. That led them to the huge win with the Army and now P320 variants a multiplying like rabbits. They tried the P290, but it was short lived. Now the P365 seems to be taking off big time. Yet they dropped the P239, which was a classic.

    I do think they've missed at least one opportunity: The P2022 had a compact variant, the P2022c, which was never marketed in the US or to civilians anywhere. I think it would have been a huge seller because of the reliability, the weight and the price point.

    Obviously Sig did not design the gun and get the marketing ready in the three weeks since the S&W announcement but it does make me wonder if they changed timing. Could be they were ready to announce it and then S&W announced theirs so they waited a few weeks. Maybe S&W knew and hurried to be ready before Sig. I always wonder about timing of these things as it is in neither company's interest to announce at the same time.

    Agree. I am sure they have had it in the works, but as you mentioned, the timing is interesting. Because S&W sold the heck out of the Shield, and waited many years before releasing the updated shields and even longer for the 4” models. Seems Sig might be poaching their own sales as potential 365 owners now may go with this new one.

    So, the big new deal are micro 9mm's for the concealed carry market and everyone waits with baited breath for magazine extensions because they feel its not enough as designed and now the even bigger new deal is making those micro pistols bigger so you don't need the magazine extensions? I know handguns are not selling well right now but, I miss the point of these "expanded" concealed carry guns I guess. No doubt an 18 round magazine will come out for this "new" model as well.

    Like cell phones? They started out huge, then got smaller and smaller to the tiny flip phones (which I still have), and then started to get larger and larger and are now approaching the size of small tablets.

    I love my p320 and there may be a 365 in my future since it is 10 rounds and a good trigger in the same space as the six in my Walther PPS or Kahr PM9, but the new one is kind of 'meh' as far as I am concerned

    I agree. The “micro 9’s” get mag extensions till they are normal sized guns. Or even more cray stuff like the Glock 48. If you can carry a Glock 48, you can just as easily carry the 19. A tenth of an inch thickness doesn’t even matter.

    A high cap but small 380 might be amazing. The only legit hicap 380 is the Beretta. This IS an untapped market.

    I enjoy my 320 as well and mostly agree with you. I can certainly see a regular 365 in my future. The 365 XL idea has grown on me though the more I read about it. To get 15 rouds in a gun that feels more like a real gun yet is that slim is appealing. The slimmer size may not be important for some, but it is to me. The next few days will be in the high 90s here and of course humid, so anything that allows for more gun with light clothing is good. Of course we are all different and wear different size clothing so I would have to try one and see if it does make a difference compared to my 320c. It might just be one of those things where the 320 is not much different and I would likely carry something smaller anyway. Can't tell from just paper stats.

    Shawn Ryan, former Navy SEAL and CIA contractor, and owner of Vigilance Elite (training), a dude who has always been very vocal about being a Glock guy, just stated on video he's tested the crap out of his p365 for months, and has grown to like it so much that he's now carrying it. To paraphrase, he said that of all the subcompacts he's shot, it has the best accuracy, trigger, ergonomics, capacity. Ironically, he was fairly skeptical when he first reviewed it- he's not the easily impressed type.

    As long as I stay away from the gun counters, it's NOT inevitable that I end up buying one. It's NOT, because I'm the boss of me.

    It's great having choices. I am sure I will play with the new one at the LGS when it is available. Who knows?

    I struggle to see the point of this gun. And I love the P365.

    But what at this point does this offer that you wouldn’t find in a plethora of other models like the M&Pc, XD compact or subcompact, or say even the P320 Carry etc?

    If it is all about grip length as far as carry goes you’re now losing in that dimension with this? Wouldn’t it make sense to go a tad wider now with a double stack and get equal capacity but maybe with a shorter grip?

    Making a P365 the same size as a Glock 19 simply means that I will tuck the 365 away in the dust bin in the back of my mind and continue to carry a Glock 30S, 19 / 23, or a Glock 27 with a 32 length barrel for .357 Sig. Why spend a LOT more money on the same, or less capability than the mid size 19 with a full size 17 mag, Plus, I can always stick a 33 round mag in the 19. And the last nail in the coffin...it already has a Vortex Venom on it.

    I like Sig pistols. I don't think the 10,000 different models are really necessary.
