    Buds has P365 in stock

    The Trijicon HD have been my go to sights on all my handguns except an Ed Brown 1911. The Sig X-ray sights were developed by some former Trijicon engineers according to a discussion I had with a Sig rep before buying mine. The only shooting difference I have noted is the color of the front sight. My HDs are all orange for fast pick up. I am still able to use the P365 X-ray sights at nearly the same speed. The rear sight is purposefully muted with no color to quicken front sight pick up. Work with them a bit and you’ll get the hang of them.

    Glock 43 vs Shield 9mm

    Chances R, I agree with you on the ported handguns.

    I picked one up at Academy by accident. They had just got it in, I was there, money gone. Only $499. Very sweet shooter. Extremely accurate, even at 10 yards.

    Glock 43 vs Shield 9mm

    I agree with Steelharp. Both my girlfriend and I tried to like the 43 but we both kept going back to the Shield. Much better shooter. They improved the trigger with the 45 acp version and the 2.0 is sweet. Having said that, I just picked up a P365 and it is amazingly accurate. Put 250 rounds through it Friday and no issues. Birthdate on gun was March 29. Sig puts that on the label. I will keep my Shield for now but the P365 is worth a serious look if you do not have a carry gun. It will replace several in my rotation if it continues to impress.

    Glock Gen5.

    Wingshooter, I agree. I was wanting it to be just slightly smaller. I was ready to buy after getting a chance to look at it up close. I wasn't even that put off by the fact that the trigger mechanism is mostly, non-compatible parts. Garufa, after considering last night, I think it might be related to the dual slide release and changes in the locking block making it slightly wider. Not sure, just a guess.

    Glock Gen5.

    I doubt that anyone who buys one will be disappointed. My girlfriend really needs the smaller grip and I am on the fence for that reason only. Will probably rent/borrow one and put a few hundred down range and then jump. There are many things to like about it.

    Glock Gen5.

    There was no back strap on it. I liked the lack of finger grooves, as I learned to shoot on 1911s back in the day, and went there expecting to place a blue label order. Guess I saved money for now.
