I would like some honest reviews of people who have actually shot the Sig P365. I have done the compupu research and want to here from my fellow THF'rs who have actually shot this gun what you think of it. Thanks.

I held it and pointed it. It was very very nice for a little gun. If I were in the market it would make a very short list

Me too !!!

I heard it started out a little shaky because of the tiny "double stack" magazine having problems. Besides its $600 price tag. it would get a serious look from me.

I would also look at the 1911 style guns Kimber Micro, SIG 239, the new Springfield 911 is interesting the .380 is no slouch now days.

Beside "working" mine would need to fit in a Desantis superfly holster and disappear in my pocket, which all these will

I would never buy a 380 when you can get a 9 for about the same size

There's a huge difference in size and weight between the smallest 380s and the smallest 9mm. I don't care for the caliber, but a 380 is a true pocket gun. I have one in my pocket right now.

I've got pocket 380's, micro 9's, sub compact 9's/40's and am familiar with many different brands.

I am looking for hands on review of the Sig P365.

I wasn't aware of this one, now I am curious. Hopefully someone with trigger time with one, can share their experience!

It may be a bit early to find actual people who have gotten their hands on the P365. I had one on backorder from Brownell's; but when it didn't ship at the end of March, that order got cancelled.

It depends on the size of the person carrying, if your a little sawed off person (like a couple of the boys just south of Lake Texoma) size will matter more than a person that is a lot juicer and shops in the big and tall dept. bolt

Sorry I have nothing to help the original poster

Update:

I found a LGS that had a display model. Initial handling was well beyond expectations. Tacky grip that fits well in my average hand with the optional 12 round magazine. Trigger was smooth and broke clean. Trigger reset was easily audible and could feel it in finger as well. I was not able to determine how well the included night sights illuminated in the brightness of the store. I liked the natural pointability in my hand. My natural grip allowed level horizontal sight plane, I have to down cant my wrist a tiny bit to get Glock sights on plane. Slide action was smooth as you would expect from Sig. Slide release and takedown lever were sized correctly and out of the way, even for my left handed self. Magazine release button is right sized and magazine dropped free whether in battery or at slide lock. The Sig is noticeably smaller than the Glock 26/27 and similar size to the Glock 43 for those who are wanting to know the size with readily available firearms you've most likely handled. I really like the idea of having double the rounds in the gun than the stock Glock 43. This means you can carry the same amount of rounds without having to fool with hiding an extra mag on your body if you have the Glock 43.

FYI before I got interested in the Sig I was seriously contemplating buying the Glock 43, yes I am a Glock fanboy. I've carried "Roscoe" for 23 years and have never been a Sig fan until now. The Sig P365 will be my new purchase barring any major issues continuing after initial production hiccups.

Without shooting the Sig I would have bought it if they were in stock. For all those waiting for your order to be fulfilled you will be happy with the Sig P365.

Now if we could get someone to chime in who has actually had range time with it, putting it through some serious trials...

I should be able to give an honest review next weekend provided Spring Guns and Ammo has one. If they do, next Saturday Iím gonna procure one.

Just watched Hickock45 do a revue on this pistol, I was impressed. With my fondness for SIG's I foresee one in my future or Mrs. B's. 11 rounds of 9mm in that small of a package and still keeping a thin profile is impressive plus it's plus P rated.
