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

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.

OK, I picked up a 365 yesterday. (Bought, not just picked up) Took it to the range today. I'm impressed. I have long hands and it was easy to shoot. The short sight radius compared to my FS handguns cost me some accuracy, but that's just the nature of the beast, not the guns fault. I unboxed it, dabbed a few drops of gun oil on the rails, quick-racked it a few times, and loaded her up. I was shooting the magazine with the pinky extension, and will be buying another of those as well as a couple 12-round. The flush-mount functioned just as well, but I need more of a grip than it offers.

150 rounds fired this morning through it and not a single hiccup. I personally found it much more controllable than the P 238. Loading is almost scary easy. With the slide locked to the rear, insert the magazine, and with just a fraction of a millimeter (I'm barely exaggerating here) of rearward slide motion she goes into battery. Despite the narrow purchase area, it's extremely easy to charge. Using the slide stop as a release was also very easy, but I prefer to "sling shot" load and it did it perfectly.

Take-down is stupidly simple. There's one trick but it's so easy I'm not even going to get into it here.

The true innovation of this gun, apparently, isn't the gun itself but the magazine. It necks down towards the top, allowing the frame of the 365 to follow its' lines. Loading the magazine's was surprising. The 10th round into these magazine's felt like the 10th round into a higher capacity magazine, if that makes sense. While not "delicate" I never wished for a loading device even after loading them 15 times.

On a side note, on page 20 of the owner's manual it shows a variant with a manual safety. And the holes are in the frame for an ambi-safety, they're covered on the outside by the coating and ALMOST invisible. I didn't look until I saw the safety in the manual and with really carful looking you can tell where the safety will go. I'm looking for a manual safety version to come out soon, so if that's important to you, just sit tight for a while.

Overall the P 365 was a pleasure to shoot and with a little practice and doing my part I'll carry with confidence. I didn't find it "snappy" at all. I don't look for it to replace my M&P .40c with TFO sights, but I certainly have room in the stable for her and she's staying.

I looked at the SIG site and the only holster they show now for it, that I can see, in an inside the waistband type. I'll be looking around at FOBUS, Alien Gear, and even EL Paso Saddlery for a proper carry rig for it.

I hope this was useful.

Ken

edited to add:. The first 100 rounds was Sig 115g FMJ ammo, the next 50 were 25 rounds of 115g Hornady Critical Defense and 25 rounds of 135g Critical Duty. I could tell the difference, but the gun sure as heck couldn't. The 365 is rated for +P ammo.

edited again to add: I just read my review and think I should say I do not work for Sig and have no financial interest in the success or failure of this gun.
