    when I need to pocket carry this is the pistol I carry. Works well with dockers, shorts, and jeans. is it a quicker draw than belt carry? no. But in my situation there are just some instances where I cannot belt carry and need better concealment.

    The Vedder Pocket Locker is better than the Alabama Pocket Holster IMHO.

    Congrats on your 365! I think that I'm going to rent one to see if will replace my 43.

    Thanks, I had a G43 and with a Handall Jr. grip it was pleasant to shoot. I shot it well, but when I got my Hellcat I sold it to a local Police Officer and gave him a "Blue Lives Matter" deal. :flag:

    The Hellcat handles and shoots very well, a little snappy, but no where near as much as my G43. I just got my P365 so I haven't had time to shoot it to compare to the Hellcat.

    If you’re going to cut the slot on the grip yourself, check out the sigtalk thread linked in my thread. You’ll find the measurements for the cutout.

    Good luck with the project.

    I’d be curious to know your opinion. I found in my hands the 365 is more accurate and maybe less felt recoil? Definitely less muzzle flip on the Sig.

    That is how I feel, as well. The Hellcat is a great gun, and if I didn't have the 365 to compare it to, I would have been thrilled with it. But I do have a slight preference for the 365 for the reasons you state. The Hellcat's +1 on ammo is nice, but is a bit offset by a slight increase in size. Interested to learn SIG Fever's thoughts.

    Exactly, if I didn’t have the 365 and XL without a doubt I’d be carrying a hellcat. I bought the XL more because I wanted an optic ready carry pistol to mess around with. Sometimes I stare at it and wonder why I did that because the 365 is still my EDC lol.

    Well, I haven't even shot my new xl yet, so take what follows for what it's worth. Assuming the plug-and-play aspect of the two pistols works without problems, I plan to put the xl slide on the regular frame for carry. That will give me a long-barrel, optics option P365. I prefer the short grip for carry, but will gladly take the other gains that the xl offers.

    BTW -

    Midway has P365 mags in stock

    https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1019825025?pid=752842

    10 and 12 round $42.99 (regular price $49.99)
    15 round $49.99

    Plus a free shipping promo if you spend $49.

    If there is a better deal on P365 mags please let me know -


    I am having a hard time deciding if I want the 12 round mag - I like the feel of the 10 round without the finger extension better.

    I like the XL module with the 12 round mags, the 15 round spare seems to print more. So I run 12+1 and 12 spare.

    Very nice. I went with the Hellcat personally, but I think the 365 is a much better looking pistol. Hope it serves you well.

    I bought the Hellcat first, I really like it and go back and forth between the two. I carry the P365 more, for now. They both share the same holsters.

    I carry with the flush mag and a 15 round back up. Appendix with the vedder light tuck. I bought this with the manual safety since it doesn’t have a trigger dingus.

    Bass Pro cheaper on the 12 rounds
    Scheels cheaper on the 15 rounds from a quick search.

    All within a few bucks so doesn’t really make a difference.

    I have the Vedder Lighttuck and a JM Custom Kydex that I use AIWB. The JMCK is a little longer so it stays flatter to your belly when you sit down.
