Agreed, I’m trying to decide if the next one will be a Glock 17 or Sig Sauer P320...

Shoot them both. The G17 and P320 are two drastically different handguns. If you want a real awesome one, go shoot the P320 X-Five. The X-Five is one of the best shooting striker guns ever made.

X-Five but also in that group of pistols check out the P10F and VP9. Although I think Mags for the glock and P320 are probably more affordable than the VP9's

Never shot the Sig P230, but it's probably better than the G17. I had a P226R for a few years, great pistol except the trigger pull on mine was very strange.

I've got a G17 gen 3, and it's a solid pistol, but it's really not super great.

I did just pick up an H&K VP9 9mm yesterday and am really enjoying it.

The P320 is a good pistol, especially if you start throwing in Gray Guns trigger wizardry.
Even in stock format, it’s a decent enough pistol, though you have to make sure the guns you get are the drop safe. The flat military trigger will also prevent that. Our agency authorizes 9mm and .45ACP Glock, S&W M&P 2.0 and Sig P320 pistols for recruits. At least half of recruits are choosing the Sig P320. It’s a very well-liked pistol.
While I am a die-hard supporter of the Glock, I must say that I am a far bigger fan of my highly custom Glocks with grip reduction and stippling as opposed to the stock ones.

May not matter to most but cali people got a bit of freedom this past week so I splurged on stuff for the CZs.

Hopefully before the case reaches the 9th circuit it will be stacked with a few more constitutional conservatives. I dont knowing the scotus would take on a case like this given the weight of it...lately it seems like scotus doesnt want to so anything seriously impactful which this case would definitely be.

I ended up finding. A great deal on a Glock 17.5 MOS with less than 100 rounds through it. My FFL commented how clean it is and two of the magazines look unused.

My current agency doesnít authorize any Sigs, Walthers, etc., nor can we carry .40 caliber. We are issued M&Pís, but we can carry Glocks. The Sig365 was tested, but it wasnít authorized despite being problem free. Some Deps carry it [and other non-authorized guns] anyway. Iím considering picking one up myself. I still carry my trusty Shield 2.0 with Magguts and my 3.4Ē Compact 2.0 with mags from my full size M&P.

Has anyone gotten their hands on a ACRO or SRO yet? Kinda curious how they compare to the RMR and DPP...Also hoping with the SRO that is drops RMR prices a bit

Two of my partners just got ACROs, one mounted it on a P320 X-Five, and the other mounted on his G34. I got my hands on the G34 a couple days ago and the ACRO is a nice piece of kit. Dot seems easier to acquire than the RMR for whatever reason, even though the housing really isn’t any larger. DPP has a much larger housing and the dot is easiest to acquire with that one, but the DPP isn’t as durable as the RMR, SRO or ACRO.

I am picking up an SRO to replace my RMR Type 2 on my duty G17, and hope to have that in the next month or two.

From what I’ve heard, Trijicon has no plans on dropping prices on the RMR. Historically they really don’t drop prices on anything, so this really isn’t news. The RMR Type 3 is supposedly under development right now, which I suspect will replace the Type 2. The Type 3 is rumored to be a fully enclosed housing like the Aimpoint ACRO, which would leave the SRO as the only open-housing optic. But that’s just early stage rumor mongering.

I finally picked up a Sig P365 [with an April 2019 born date] recently. Iím sending it to Boresight Solutions for some of their impressive grip work, and then Iíll cycle the P365 into my off duty carry and test it out. I hope I love it as much as I do my Shield.

I went to ProForce for this one. It was a little pricy, but cheaper than every other reseller. I paid $514 OTD (...tax, DROS, etc.).
