For me, the p365 compared to my Glock 43, the sig blew the glock out of the water. People (myself included) typically shoot full size guns like the glock 17 better than subcompact guns. My comment was that I can shoot my p365 as good as (if not better) than my g17, even at tempo..
I definitely can't say that I shoot my P356 or P365XL quite as well as my G17, but the difference is way less than with any other subcompact that I've ever shot.

As an aside, I often chuckle at the fact that it was only a few years ago that folks commonly referred to the G26 as a "subcompact" and the G19 as a "compact" when now we have options like the P365XL and Hellcat that both have higher round capacity and are way more concealable. Carrying a G26 concealed is like tucking a brick into your waistband compared the new breed of CCW guns.

I can’t say why I won’t sell my Glock 26, but it’s definitely completely unloaded and in my safe at the moment.

I suppose in the apocalypse it’ll be nice to have my Glock 17, 19, and 26 on me and all able to take the same mag, right? Lol

I used to think like that but over time I've changed my views somewhat. It started with the realization that in any shtf/wrol scenario, my goal won't be to have stand up gunfights. Instead it will be to break contact and evade as quickly as possible. So Instead of going with carrying massive amounts of ammo, I chose to carry a more effective and versatile caliber on a reliable and proven frame. Now my focus is on becoming as proficient as I can with that combo.

I have a P220 in the Lords caliber (45) and I'm coming to the realization that 8 rounds isn't munch in a gunfight which means I have to carry more mags and 45 is a little on the heavy side.

Looking for a full size 9mm. Can carry more ammo in 2 mags than what I currently have total on my rig.

I EDC a Springfield Range Officer Elite in 10mm with 8rd mag loaded and two 10rd mags for reload. While heavy, the weight definitely helps with the recoil and I can use the 10mm for hunting medium to large game or penetrating barriers.

Para Ordanance went under awhile back, but I think Remington bought their rights. Para made a .45 in a commander size package that carried 12 rounds of .45. The also made a P-14, which was full size 1911 but had a mag capacity of 14 and one in the chamber. Mags are hard to come by now. But, P-12 mags can be found for a decent price. Single action pieces with a manual safety.

Heckler and Kock makes fine pistols too. Had a USP-1 years back that was my work gun especially for search warrants. 13 round capacity (If I remember) in .45. Best pistol I ever had, but it was heavy and not easily concealed. Had both single action and double action capability. They're available in 9mm now, I think.
