At KPDL we shoot regardless of weather. The only things that stop us is floods and extreme mud left over from a flood. The kind of mud that will suck combat boots off your feet or grab your legs like giant fly paper.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

Just put 200 rounds through the p365.  Not bad for a small pistol.  I am not a huge fan of small pistols, but I can say it is one of the best ones I have used.  It points well, recoils well, I can just barely get my whole hand on the grip with the extended mag, which is good.  The sights are good.  It was 100% reliable with my reloads.

The trigger is ok.  Decent for a striker fired pistol, but nothing amazing IMO.  The reset is nice with a noticeable click. 

The primer drag was not really that bad on mine.  On some of them it was not even noticeable.  I had none that I saw that drug clear out onto the case head as I have seen pics on the net.  Most of them were very slight dragging just enough to make the dimple look squarish instead of round.

It seemed to be quite accurate.  I as able to hold hand sized groups out to 20 yards with it.  I think it will make a good carry gun when I want something small.     

I will run another 300+ through it then 100 or so of the ammo I use for carry and move it into the rotation if all goes well.

Primer swipe with my G43 was much more pronounced.

The sights are a bit more radiused in the rear than I like, but that is a minor gripe.

Agree on trigger, but orders of magnitude better than the glock stock.

Glock ROCKS...
I've done a little work on all my Glocks, insignificant cost and still less expensive than the SIGs... Never had a failure

Plus Mitch Rapp prefers a Glock 19.  That says a lot.
