Had a Shield and upgraded to P365. Its a much better pistol as far as a more natural grip and smoother trigger pull.
That's what I have heard, although the shield feels great to me in my hands. The trigger could certainly use some work. I have a bunch of different holsters for it so I'm likely just to keep it. If I buy another gun in the next 6 months my wife is going to kill me with it lol. I go to pickup my Scorpion Micro Pistol tomorrow, so that will have to be it for a little bit.

Does anyone out there have extensive experience with both a P365 and a G26 Gen4? If so, what are your likes and dislikes?

Probably a better comparison with the G43/48

Not extensive by any means, but I can give you my 2 cents.

I daily carry a G26 gen 5. I like it for all the reasons people like Glocks: durability, reliability, accuracy, a decent trigger and sights from the factory, for a decent price. I also dislike the same things about it that lots of people dislike about Glocks: a grip angle that feels less than natural, and it’s a little blocky for IWB carry.

I only shot about 30 rounds through the P365 but it felt great. Surprisingly little recoil from such a small pistol with the 124 grain ammo (a little more than the G26 for sure, but not as snappy as as my Ruger EC9s), lightweight, slim, great grip and trigger and sights.

I like my G26, so the Sig is actually not high on my wish list of guns, but it’s on there, for sure.

Been carrying a 10mm almost daily for over 10 years now. Started with the G20 and G29, but now carry a 1911 Springfield Range Officer Elite Operator in 10mm. There's just something about wood and steel in your hand a Glock can't replicate.

If you know of a gun for less than $440 that has a significantly better trigger than the G26 gen 5, I’d love to hear it.

They may exist but they are not numerous.

They're commonly referred to as entry level 1911's...RIA comes to mind. But for striker fired glock triggers aren't bad.

How many here drill and train with exertion being part of you routine? Pushups to exertion then shoot, buddy carry 100 yards then shoot, etc.
Shooting from various positions?... kneeing, cornering, on your back, secondary draw, non-dominant hand firing?
Mag reloads? Clearing malfunctions? Go to secondary?

Just popping a few rounds isn't enough.

When it goes down you are going to be under extreme stress, adrenaline pumping, and it will be over way too fast.

Anyone else have this kind of experience?
I can remember my first chase, smells.. emotions..

Hyperventilation, numbness in the extremities, and auditory shutdown are REAL. Going into autopilot is REAL. Unless you regularly mentally and physically preparing yourself, it is extremely unlikely that you'll have a profound level of conscious thought and decision making and forget about fine motor skills.

I carry a Glock 26 (5th gen) and have been thinking about trying to find something a little slimmer and lighter for daily IWB carry. Was planning on looking at the Glock 43 and the single stack Shield. Sig wasn't even on my radar until I shot a buddy's today and I was thoroughly impressed with how it handled and how much ammo it held in such a lightweight, slim package. I actually liked it better than both my G26 and my Ruger.

I have about $5k worth of guns that I want to add to my collection in the next year, lol.
I went to the Glock 43 before the p365 came out.. I really enjoy my 43 for IWB carry..

Once I get settled, I want another gun. Maybe like a crack instead of a pew.

Just picked up my Scorpion Micro the other day. Headed to this outdoor state range next week at this lake house we rented. The stock irons are actually pretty decent but if I want to keep them and the optic I’m going to have to grab a riser. Will play around with all of that next week to see what I like. Already swapped the stock grip out for a Magpul which makes a huge difference.

This is an EMS forum, not a gun forum. In the past threads about guns have not ended well and resulted in some members receiving forum vacations.
Just don’t give us all tickets like you did last time
