My FFL just received my P365!!! That's the quickest turnaround I've had from online ordering. Ordered about 1:30pm EST yesterday and just got delivered 20 minutes ago.

I bought my first Glock in 1992. It was a G20 10mm which I qualified with and had listed on my concealed carry permit at the time. I got up to nine Glocks at one time. I had two G20 SF and a G29 SF 10mm, two G21 SF and a G30 SF .45 ACP, and two G17 and a G26 9mm. I am currently Glockless.

I had the 365 and it ran flawless for me...I traded it for an M&P Shield 2.0 to go along side my M&P Compact 2.0. I really like the M&P's. I do carry the Glocks every once in a while. No reason or desire to let go of them right now.
Never got bit by the Glock bug. Tried them a few times and just didn't feel the love. My primary has been a Sig the last few years with a P938 being replaced last December by the P365.

I'm on the verge of ditching my Glocks too. My 43 started nosediving the first couple of round in a full magazine to the extent that I sent it back to Glock. They replaced the slide stop which I didn't think could be responsible and, guess what, I was right. Got it back and it was still doing it and now it's on it's way back again. That kind of popped my Glock bubble and got me looking around. I first got a 19 right after the Gen4's came out, then the G43 a couple of years later. Two months ago I traded the 19 in for a 43X and then this issue with the 43 popped up.
I don't know, maybe there was a latent dissatisfaction growing that I was unaware of but now that 1) a Glock of mine has failed in a way that the OEM can't diagnose, and 2) a grip angle that I just don't really like and have been "living with" rather than acclimating to, I feel this almost irresistible need to get something new. I'm thinking a Sig P365 for CC and a 1911 in .45 ACP for plinking and home defense duty. My CFO is going to kill me. Luckily though she knows so little about guns in general she might not even notice. Haha!
Glocks are ugly, their triggers suck, their sights suck, their ergonomics suck, but they do go bang.

I think you need to get an M&P 2.0 and specifically the compact. It's like being on the dark side, without actually being on the dark side.
Had several Glocks for awhile......now Glock-less and never looked back.....
Springfield, Sig and Walther now......
