Over the last 20 years, Ive trended smaller from a Walther P99 all the way down to a Ruger LCP (the little gun you have with you is better than...etc). The P365 is a great choice for me to have that many 9mm rounds in a small package. If I feel like I want more rounds, I have the 12 and 15 round magazines. I still may get an XL in coyote, well, just because. :)
Comment on: Saturday, June 13th, 2020 by CHGOFIREFIGHTER
With a $40 investment, you can purchase the XL grip and upgrade your 365 and it becomes a nicer package~
Comment on: Thursday, June 4th, 2020 by C ALONSO
Because HE FAILED TO MENTION. You can buy a 365 frame and put it on the 365xl. You will have to also buy the mag which runs around $50. length doesnt mater in carry, but height does. Wish hed done his homework first.

Great review, much appreciated!
Comment on: Monday, May 18th, 2020 by PEHENRYJR
Which one did your wife prefer, because my wife likes the way the 365 feels in hand ( she never shot either) but I want her to have the xl due to more options
Comment on: Sunday, May 17th, 2020 by JUSTUS005
Will the xl mag over insert into regular 365 when the slide is locked back?
Comment on: Thursday, May 14th, 2020 by GARY IVY
It appears these shooters were having to take longer time sighting and shooting the XL than the standard 365
Comment on: Sunday, May 3rd, 2020 by THE JOKER
Trump just bought me a p365 XL with a Romeo Zero optic and I really like it so far. That's what that money was for, right? Didn't really need it but it's much smaller and thinner than my old Glock 26 with the same capacity, and even have a 15 round backup magazine on the way. I will say even the beaver tail does poke into my beer gut sometimes when I'm sitting down sometimes, but other than that I really love it. I had no idea I'd love the flat faced trigger as much as I do. It's not the end all be all, but it's very nice but I don't have any desire to go back to shooting without a flat faced trigger. Really enjoy it so far.

This was an excellent comparison video! In the end I went for the XL... My EDC was a Springfield Armory XD-E so I went from 26oz with a 9+1 with the extended magazine to the XLs 20oz with a 12+1 magazine. It feels great to carry and eventually Ill pickup the 15 rd magazine for a spare... which will give me 9 rounds more in total compared to my old EDC setup... along with a much lighter yet better shooting conceal gun.

I have both the XL and normal 365. So here's my take. I have the 12 round magazine in my p365 magazine, which gives it the same length grip as the XL and feel as well, but only difference is a shorter barrel. Granted a longer barrel for holster carry is not that much of a difference, but as a CCW gun, the length of the barrel don't matter that much to me. So with the 365 and 12 round mag, I get the same ergonomics with a shorter barrel. The shorter barrel to me for CCW in regards of accuracy is so minute, but there's a little bit of weight savings. So the 365 with the 12 round mag wins for me, mariginally, but since its lighter and smaller it wins.

I just picked this up yesterday. It's replacing my g19 as my EDC

mental man.. compare properly
Comment on: Friday, March 6th, 2020 by SFGUARD 1
I am surprised you gave the nod to the XL. Looked to me like you were shooting the 365 faster and more accurate in the video than you were the 365xl. She was obviously doing much better with the regular 365 also.
Comment on: Wednesday, March 4th, 2020 by MAD HATTER
Too many people easily overthink too many things, all I know is I'll spend more time caring then I would shooting so Comforts is number one and if you'll suck at shooting with a particular gun. then I guess you'll have to spend more time at the shooting range.

One thing, for big guys the beaver tail does stick you in the fatty fats a bit. I have both. Still acceptable but p365 is like its not there at all. P365xl shoots a bit more accurately longer distances, not by miles but enough to matter if you want to take out the church shooter at 15 yards with a single headshot.
Comment on: Monday, February 10th, 2020 by JAMES CARTER
Any primer swipes with the P365?
Comment on: Monday, January 13th, 2020 by BIG BULLET
The weight would be the make or break for me
Comment on: Monday, January 13th, 2020 by BIG BULLET
If I can carry the xl with basket ball shorts sweat pants Id go with it instead
Comment on: Saturday, December 14th, 2019 by SCOTT MYATT
Bought P365 tacpac with three 12rd mags. Since it is for concealed carry I wanted ability for smallest footprint, but extra 12 rd mags for full grip and higher capacity. The tacpac also came with inexpensive polymer holster suitable for safely covering trigger of loaded pistol. Love the front sights. Love the trigger pull. Love the magic of a small grip that works like a larger grip. No effort at all to shoot accurately out of the box with HST 124gr +P. Nov 2019 manufacture date with no evident primer drag. No buyers regret at all.
Comment on: Wednesday, November 27th, 2019 by TOM N
I like your videos. I think the XL is the better choice. Longer slide = longer recoil spring. The two spring recoil assembly seems to be problematic. My XL is about 1/2 inch shorter than my M&P 380 EZ, has 12 rather than 8 rounds and is 9 mm instead of 380 which means a slight heavier bullet and more powder charge.
Comment on: Monday, November 11th, 2019 by KATHY SMITH
What do you recommend for a small woman for everyday carry?
Comment on: Wednesday, October 9th, 2019 by CATCHJITSU COM
Good Video thanks, Only thing I don't like on XL is Rear Sight is so wide is would obscure when searching for target too much, even the reg 365 a bit too much in that arena too having shot it again today in light CCW 9mm vs .45 on two targets challenge today, but XL sight much worse and they put that on other sig pistols too. Want to play w an SAS sometime.
Comment on: Sunday, October 6th, 2019 by COLE BROWN
Can you do a video on that new Springfield Hellcat and compare to the 365KL
Comment on: Saturday, October 5th, 2019 by ANTHONY ACELLO
What do you think of the SAS?
Comment on: Thursday, September 26th, 2019 by DEE DEE
IMHO, XL would bring it closer to that g19, I would rather take the g19
Comment on: Monday, September 23rd, 2019 by B LAW95
Why not compare the p365 with a 12 round mag in it to the XL on the grip length aspect
Comment on: Monday, September 23rd, 2019 by MARK CRAWFORD
The way I see it they both are designed to be concealed carry guns, so for me the regular P365 is the better choice.
Comment on: Friday, September 20th, 2019 by FREE DOM
Which?! BOTH
Comment on: Wednesday, September 18th, 2019 by LEE BARTLETT
Ive owned and shot both the 365 and XL. Bottom line, XL shoots better because theres less muzzle flip BUT day to day carry, the 365 is my fave. The reason, the 365 is a true micro pistol where the XL even thin, is heading toward the compact sizes with its almost 4 inch barrel. So the XL is starting to compete with the length of an M&P 2.0 Compact (which I own and carry) or the Model 19. Since the compacts already carry 15 or 17 round mags, Id rather downsize to the 365 for 11 rounds and a total concealable and comfortable pistol.
Comment on: Wednesday, September 18th, 2019 by BRUCE COLEMAN
Great video! My EDC is a Taurus G2C. Some of you may laugh, but its been 100% reliable, comes with 2 12 round mags, easy to conceal, and I shoot better with it than most of my expensive guns. And if it gets lost, stolen, or confiscated by LE because I had to use it, Ill get another one for less than $200. Still, I would like to see a comparison between the XL and the G2C. Im a Sig fan so Im looking to justify the purchase of one of these 2. By the way, the Taurus will accept the Sig p226 18 or 20 round mag.
Comment on: Tuesday, September 17th, 2019 by SPYDERTIME
I would have to say the P365 since I have 2 of them one with the safety one without. They shoot great and are very concealable.
Comment on: Monday, September 16th, 2019 by MICHAEL EDWARDS
Neither..G26 is still king!
Comment on: Monday, September 16th, 2019 by GRAYDOG 0126
If I did buy one itd be the 365 because of the option of a smaller concealed carry option and opt for a 12 round back up mag. Then Id have my priest bless it so the striker wouldnt break ......
Comment on: Monday, September 16th, 2019 by 2 A HOLES
I cant decided between these too. I like that the XL didnt seem to have striker drag. Im thinking if I intended to pocket carry at all Id get the 365.
Comment on: Monday, September 16th, 2019 by MIKE FIRNENO
I bought the XL when it came out at the local gun show and am very pleased. I conceal carry Kydex IWB w/TLR-6 for verification as needed. I like the longer slide for a little less snap, Romeo 0 option, flat trigger is great, and the .5 longer grip surface with the 12 rd mag works really well for my hand. Nice to have the 15 rd mag as a reload. I get a good one hand purchase from conceal and keep my off hand for up close and personal if needed.
Comment on: Monday, September 16th, 2019 by NIKEFAN45
I bought the P365 XL and sold my P365, the XL is a lot more enjoyable to shoot and I have no carry issues with the XL.
Comment on: Monday, September 16th, 2019 by BAMA SUX
Both the p365 and p365 xl are so reliable and fun to shoot that many end up buying both. I read that Tim from MAC is carryin a 365 XL
Comment on: Sunday, September 15th, 2019 by GRUMPYBILL
The px4 compact is the right one.
Comment on: Sunday, September 15th, 2019 by TIMLESS2
Never have shot the 365, have shot the 365xl. I have shot several smaller guns and they were snappy... not so the 365xl. I like it a lot.
Comment on: Sunday, September 15th, 2019 by COLT GLASS
Love my P365XL. Took it to the range today, 250 rounds no issues. The gun is great, dont really care for the X-RAY night sights. Arent really that bright in the day or night. But overall the gun is A+.

In California the extra rounds are mute since we are limited to 10 round mags, not to mention they are not on our roster. They are available and can be purchased legally by private party transfer. I have the P365 and carry AIWB, sweet pistol...
Comment on: Sunday, September 15th, 2019 by J P
I love the 365 concept, but just can't get past all the initial issues. I will probably get one after they've been out a few years, but just don't trust them yet. Also, given that Shield Arms has now started preorders for 15 round G43X/48 mags, I'll definitely have a tough time justifying the switch. Preemptive "chill out I'm not attacking your gun" to all the Sign owners.
Comment on: Sunday, September 15th, 2019 by JAMES JOHNSON
I have a june of 2019 p365, been flawless at about 1000 rounds, a pleasure to shoot. I might have to look into a p365 xl just because. winter, summer carry.
Comment on: Sunday, September 15th, 2019 by CHADDY1207
How does the xl compare to the Shield 2.0 size wise? I cant hardly find any comparisons of the 2.
