Because unlike you I didn't pass out with the midgets after drinking Sambuca at the last party we all went too where Bud wore it while he did his rain dance that started all this wet season.  Nobody else got to spend any time with the midgets after you went in the back room with them and put the lock on the top of the door..... we are all still very upset with you

shot it again today... really like the darn thing... I shoot it well.... under nice conditions.  I need to figure out a holster now.  I prefer hip holsters... but may need to experiment some.
 
here is a pic of a casing from my Shield.  I would say its better, but it still has some drag,  shaped like a triangle.
 
take em!

I did notice that the Win casings showed a bit more drag than the Rem casings I was using in my Sig.  these are all FMJ target rounds so far.  fwtw

I also got a Blackpoint mini wing IWB holster, it is pretty nice.  Very compact, holds the gun very tight to my body and is very comfortable.  https://blackpointtactical.com/shop/miniwing/
 
what was the 12 round priced at?

I would say, don't let me do that again, but the midgets are worth it. Especially the one with the red lips, long brown hair and eye lashes. I'm glad I took your advice, especially after your story about the bald one with the beard.

On holsters, are you looking for belt or IWB?

On drag, I've now shot most of my small guns and they all show a fair bit. I think striker/firing pin design comes to bear greatly on longevity. Of the stuff I have shot and seen a significant drag, the G43 is the worst, and I find no complaints of broken strikers - or not many.

I too like the gun very much and am glad you like yours, having talked these up quite a bit.

Talking with Sig CS and was told that firing pin has a thicker neck to it due to the primer drag that they can’t seem to resolve. And was also told that the changes were on July 2018 and newer.

Wow... been awhile since I've shot I guess.   anyway, windier than cack here today, but I got some trigger time in anyway.  the temps are up and I put 100 more rounds down the tube, without a glove today, and no issues, it shot great and felt even better!!    I even shot some 1 handed.  I have to figure out how to adjust these sights, cause it still prints low and to the left a bit.
 
most of the hits were in the "zone"   but I did have 2 that were way off... not sure what I did wrong on those two.  still shooting plinking rounds, so maybe it was a quality control issue, but it could have been me too.  a flinch or something.  of the 100 I fired, I picked up 99 of the brass.  So 1 might have been me for sure.
take em!

Shooting left may mean not enough finger on the trigger so you push it left. Low often means a slight mash. That might help

For that gun, I run the lighter stuff with the red filler in the cavity, they print perfectly and do the job downrange from short barrels, I hear.

For my bigger stuff, it is Federal LE or the tried-n-true hydra-shok. I know there is newer stuff, but I've seen what the do.

I have a mix of everything, but these are what I have most of. That said, I run a 9mm SBR too, that gets 147-gr Browning - something. I can look if you really care.

most of the early shots were in coldish weather and I wore a glove cause it beat the sh*t out of my trigger finger (recoil I think)  Today was warmer weather and I took the glove off... seemed like I got my finger on the trigger all the way.   I will pay more attention next time out.   I need to buy carry ammo now and get a good picture of how that works and go from there.

Before you move sights. I would have another competent shooter or two see how they shoot with it. 

I have owned between 20 and 30 handguns over the years and so far none of mine have needed sight adjustments.  Not saying it don’t happen but i think they are on much more often than off.  

I have watched lots of students in pistol classes complain their sights are off so an instructor will grab their gun and hit right where they aim. 

This chart may help some.

ok.  it might be a recoil thing... I had a similar issue with a Taurus carry size.  I don't have issues with larger handguns, so I assumed it was the sights.

Alrighty, in a moment of weakness, and because I didn't already have one, I broke down and bought a P365 yesterday. Mine was manufactured this month, so it incorporates the changes Sig made (but refuses to talk about) to the radius size at the base of the firing pin projection on the striker. Anyway, the P365 does have a very good trigger, very nice sights, and it was simply hard for me to ignore the black magic of a gun that's slightly smaller than a Glock 43 but offers 4 more rounds mag capacity (and 6 more in the 12+1 mag!). 

Hopefully I'll take her to the range this weekend...if it ever stops raining!

As said on another thread here, the 365 now has a 15-round mag option. It extends significantly beyond the base of the gun, but is a good option for backup mags.
