I just happen to have these little pieces, in the bazillion p365 size comparisons...not sure if I’ve seen these three together.

It actually feels quite close to my 938 size and weight wise, the g27 kinda dwarfs it.

Did you have issues or just a preference thing?

I inherited a P938 from my wife when she went to a revolver. My intentions was to sell it as I am not much on 9mm for myself. I have actually always been a .45 fan and thats what all but 1 (now 2) in my stable are. The 1 that wasn't was a P3AT that I used for pocket/bug carry. However, after shooting the 938, I rather like it better that the P3AT. Granted it is a little larger so it doesn't fit in my back pocket as well but still makes for a good BUG. One key thing about the 938 is it fits my 1911 sub compact holsters rather well.
I may wind up keeping after all.

I love my p938. It’s 380 size with 9mm power. And all with the best trigger any tiny gun ever had. Mine is a keeper for sure. I really just wanted something in between it and my g27. When sig released the 365 I knew this was the gun I was waiting for. I did wait a bit to let the bugs shake out first. I got burned being a beta tester for Ruger a while back; never again.

I doubt I'll ever get rid of my 938

Nice collection of pistols and picture comparisons. I have G26 and G43 and the 365 has had my attention. Luckily, I think, I've not had a chance to handle one yet.

That Glock 27 is showing a little holster wear. :biggrinjester:

I handled a p365 at Academy and in my hands it didn't feel good. What I really don't like is the reports of multiple problems and (don't laugh) it doesn't even have a trigger safety. I know, the safety is my finger but a gun that has no safety at all just bothers me. My Glock 26 has the trigger safety as do all Glocks. With all of the p320 recall problems I would like to see a trigger safety on the p365. Just my preference. If you read the p365 manual apparently Sig is going to come out with one with a full safety. Who wants a 1911 without a safety?

My wife's favorite gun is a Sig 320 Romeo (yes it did go back to Sig) but it is a range gun only so the safety factor is not that critical. She won't carry a gun unless it has a safety. She doesn't use it but she wants it.
