My friend is a die-hard glock fanboy. He bought a G43 when it first came out and carried it every day. Then he shot a 365. Now he owns 2 P365s and the G43 sits in the safe.

Better trigger. Better sights. 66% more capacity. Same size.

And there is now a 15 round magazine for the P365. May not want to carry it with that in the magwell., but it makes a great spare mag where allowed, and also makes the p365 a serviceable home defense gun with slight drawback on sight radius and mass, but a good amount of ammo.

All four instructors thought the G43 had the less recoil. The sig wasn't even second. Now toting a G43X. Don't have to take the little finger on it to drop the mag.
I should have stopped reading before your post. I was used to my PPS m2 and never thought about my pinky on the extended mags...now it's all I think about when I carry it.
Went to the range this morning and realized I was straightening my pinky to eject the empty mag for a quick reload.
I like the feel and quality of the Walther and it shoots well.
But now you planted this in my hypochondriac type brain and...

In case anyone's curious, here's the completed family of P365 mags. flat 10, pinky 10, 12, and 15.

The topped-off 15 does make for quite a little brick as a spare in your pocket. Or, you could load it Baltimore style, with just three or four mix-and-match so it doesn't weigh as much

Can I ask where you found a 15rd mag? I called around to all the NoVa gun shops and nobody had them.

It was just released this week. I'm not surprised no shop has them yet.

It’s my picture. I just ordered it right from the Sig web site. Uh, I mean my friend who works at a Virginia street address did. I always like having lunch in Sterling.
