    Went and picked up a P320 XCompact. It feels pretty great in my hands. Going to shoot it after work today. Looking forward to getting a few rounds through it.

    I’ve been eyeballing those. Seriously eyeballing them.

    I've steered clear of the G26, the 365 and the like due to the short grips. My G30 with a 9-round mag is barely acceptable as to feel. I know some say get the "X" capacity mag for that finger hold, but if that's the solution, I'd just as well have a longer grip with flush mags.

    Anyhow, I hope your 365 works out well for you. That's all that matters.

    I have XL hands and sub compacts just aren't comfy for me. Good luck to you though.

    My friend from N.C. is a Sig-man! He loves that pistol brand above all others and has quite a few of them. He and his wife came up this past weekend to hang with me and my wife and we went to the range yesterday. I took a few of my HK's (of course) and my Walther PPQ and my AR-15. He brought his Sig Legion, P320 and P320 X-Compact. I really enjoyed shooting them. Very nice!

    How comfy does a defensive weapon have to be? The flip side is, can you adequately conceal a gun that gives you what you consider a comfortable grip? If the answer to the latter is is yes, the rest is moot. If the answer is no, you might want to try getting comfortable with a subcompact.

    It is the Compact size 320. 15 rounds. Not a subcompact like a 26 nor a micro like a 365.

    The P320 is a great shooting pistol as is the P365. Good choices!

    I think not.

    I kind of went the other way. I own several 320's, including an X5, and a P229. All very good guns, but harder to use for CC given their size, even the compact. So I finally broke down and bought a 365XL. I have XL-XXL hands it fits well. Rates a solid zero on my "sex appeal" chart, but it is easy to carry and shoots decent.

    Anyway, hope you like the new 320. I think you'll really like the step up in size and accuracy.

    Congrats! I've had one for over 3k rounds and happy with it. It is a hybrid with a SC length barrel & slide and the compact size frame (with improvements). It is quite accurate and easy to carry (but not quite as easy as the P365). Of course, if you are thinking a red dot optic, it has a plate and is ready to go. Good luck & happy shooting!

    I'm not a fan of short grips either. my P365 is technically a P365X. I use the P365XL grip module to get all 3 fingers on it and get a clean mag drop.

    I shot 120 rounds through it last night before it got too dark. I really like it. Follow up shots are pretty quick and easy and I can track the X-Ray sights pretty well even without my glasses (readers). If this is supposed to have muzzle flip due to a high bore axis, I couldn't feel it. It shot pretty flat for me. Overall I'm very happy with it. Targets from my fist two mags shot from about 25ft. First one is as fast the front sight came back on target. Second one was a little slower and more controlled. Definitely room for improvement. I'm sure the groups will tighten once I get some more trigger time with it.

    You might find you carry the P320xc far more the p365 . Soft shooting , great trigger and that grip just feels good in the hand . I bought one for a bargain price figuring it would make a good carry when I get tried of shooting a 40sw or my eye sight gets worse and might need dot optics ! . Liked the grip enough to replace the grip module on my old p320c 40sw with the same X series grip module and modified my old mags to fit .

    I also switched from standard 320 grip to the X-series. X-Carry in my case. I thought the standard 320 grip was great but the X-series turns out to be even better. The cool thing about changing grip modules is that it is very easy to unload the old one on eBay at very good prices.

    Wilson Combat recently released grip modules for the Carry and Full size pistols(X-Compact in the works). The reviews seem very favorable and there are a few small tweaks that I think would be nice. It is slimmer for one thing.

    They are out of stock again. Two days ago they were back, now out.
