    Just received my P365 "Born on" 07/30/2020 pistol. All sights are very bright, the front sight had a partial thin film covering it which brushed right off. I had ordered a Flat Trigger for it and installed it right away, man I really prefer these flat triggers like on my P320 X Compact. When the Manual Safety conversion kits come back in stock, I will install that too. I carry AIWB and being able to use the safety if I want to is a plus. Also, all my Hellcat holsters fit it!

    they make great pocket pistols with the flush 10 round mag and a Vedder pocket locker holster

    G26 - you answered my question that has yet to be asked on this forum, regarding pocket carry. That looks like a tight little package. I'm wondering if it could replace my LCPII in the pocket.

    Enjoy! They are awesome little pistols. I just acquired an XL to go with my regular one.

    Looks good, but your dollar is backwards and upside down. Is that a sign of distress, like an upside down flag? Should we send help immediately?

    That's going to depend on your size and wardrobe. Bigger guys, loose pants, or cargo shorts should be fine, but for skinny guys like me who often wear dress pants or Dockers, it's a no go. It fits in my pocket, but it prints quite a bit and isn't coming out smoothly. It's a totally different size than my pocketable BG380. I would image the same is true of the LCPII. Again, YMMV.

    Just curious, have you tried any other pocket holsters besides the Vedder with your p365?

    Can’t you order the P365 with a manual safety?

    Congrats on the p365.

    I added a (left side only) safety to it and pocket carry in a desantis nemesis.

    If you can pocket carry a jframe, you can pocket carry a p365. The LCP is in another league though, not even close.

    Where did you get the left side only safety and module? I do not want a Ambi model as I am right handed.

    Osage county guns seems to have safety parts in and out of stock - check there often and be prepared to buy when they are in stock. AB Prototype is another source of parts.

    You need three parts: the lever, spring and detent. Osage sells them as a kit: https://osagecountyguns.com/sig-sauer-kit-365-safety-conv-nogrip.html

    It's small, but 10 rounds are heavy in the pocket.

    Agreed. While I love my 365, and it is an awesome combination of small and 9mm capacity, it isn't a P3AT or LCP. I can carry a P3AT in a pocket, but unless I am wearing cargo pants or if we count a jacket pocket as a pocket, the 365 is still a bit larger than my pockets accommodate. Some can make it work, but not me.

    As for the Distress Dollar (flown upside down), I do think you should send a either a rescue ship or twenty dollar bill to lend aid! Funny observation, but it is odd to see a dollar like that! The Bounty paper towel does add nice texture, the bill is nice and crisp, and it is a good photo of the gun and holster!

    Nice pick up during these times. I had one myself and liked it but never carried it for whatever reason. The gun shot point of aim and I was really accurate with it.
    I’m a big guy and could easily pull off pocket carrying it but two issues I had with the design as the back of the magazine base plate would poke into the palm of my hand during firing, both 10 round mags did this, the 12 rounder was fine but wouldn’t really fit in the pocket. My preferred carry position. The other issue I had were with the mags again, as they are a ***** to load. Over the course of a year I owned it and shot it they never loosened up.
    Two small issues otherwise a great pistol. I sold it and kept my g43 and LCP as they both work for my needs.
    Enjoy yours.

    when I first got it, I had a remora sticky holster for pocket carry, but it gave me the heebie jeebies since it has no retention and I was worried the trigger guard would be exposed in some situations.

    the Vedder pocket locker is miles nicer to carry and draw. It's so much thinner. I know Alabama holster makes a similar product as well.
