The P365 9mm is a great gun, indeed it’s our
And now you can…
Not everybody believes their holster and the clean, crisp trigger pull is the safety. There are too many people carrying the Sig P365 and other striker fired guns without a round in the chamber. Honestly, if you’re doing that then you’ve got the wrong compact everyday carry gun.
You need a CZ Rami or 9mm subcompact 1911, cocked and locked. Or you need the Sig Sauer P365 manual safety pistol. That was finally announced in response to massive customer demand at the 2019 Shot Show.
Law enforcement officers looking for a back-up gun were the most vocal about this, so it isn’t just a firearms training issue.
So where do you buy your new Sig P365 9mm with manual safety and night sights?
A Manual Safety Gives You Options With Your Sig P365
It’s a simple frame-mounted thumb safety. This is just a plastic switch, but it changes the character of the gun. Now you can opt for different holster options, and suddenly the semi-auto Sig Sauer P365 manual safety becomes the best pocket gun in your collection.
It even becomes a viable purse gun without a Kydex holster. Right now, that really is a problem tactically with the no safety Sig P365.
The freedom that you get with
P365 is a Compact Everyday Carry Size Game Changer
The simple thing is that the 9mm P365 Nitron micro compact changed the game in terms of packaging.
This is a gun that is every bit as compact as the Ruger LCP 380 II, or the Beretta Nano, more so than the CZ or Springfield Armory, yet it comes with a full State friendly complement of 10+1 rounds of 9mm ammunition. or 12+1 if you go for the extended magazine and high capacity.
There is a 10-round extended magazine, too, as well as the 10-round
Is 9mm Better Than 45 ACP For Personal Defense?
9mm vs 45 ACP is still a thing, of course, but we’re firmly in the 9mm camp. There has just been so much development on 9mm personal defense ammunition. The additional weight of the 45 ACP doesn’t hold the same competitive advantage that it used to, although we do like the full size Springfield Loaded..
That argument dies a horrible death in the Commie states, though. If they’re going for your capacity, not your caliber, then go straight past 45 ACP and go all in with a 10mm handgun or the new breed of 10mm concealed carry handguns.
As firearms manufacturers continue to work with 9mm, the gap is only coming down and most government agency and law enforcement officers are embracing 9mm Luger these days after famously casting shade on its capabilities in the past.
Tiny Gun That Fits Every Hand
It also comes with near perfect dimensions for the best 9mm subcompact handgun money can buy. It’s 5.8 inches long with a 3.1 inch barrel length, a slimline frame despite the double stack magazine and a 1.11lb weight. It fits anywhere, conceals well and has just enough stainless steel slide work to make it easy to handle.
The ergonomics of the P365 have been covered in great depth everywhere. Somehow, no matter how big your hand, this tiny gun nestles perfectly.
It looks comically small. Some people prefer the extended magazine to fit larger hands, but the Sig P365 is a masterclass in packaging and simplicity. With the
The Sig P365 is the best concealed carry for women and the best carry gun for people with small hands. Now if you want something bigger, the Sig Sauer P365 XL is there to really take over the EDC niche.
Do You Need a Sig P365 Manual Safety Pistol?
That was all without the thumb safety. But if you appendix carry and you’re in the car, you’re heading in to church or you know you won’t have to go full operator for a while, you can flick the safety into position and you’ve got that added peace of mind.
It’s not a soft option, it’s a sensible option. It’s just another option for your EDC.
Technically you don’t need a manual safety on your Sig Sauer P365 Nitron micro compact 9mm. But some people just don’t like internal safeties and want that added peace of mind. There’s a lot of you or them out
I haven’t required the services of the seatbelt in my car for the last 20 years. I don’t actively try and delete it as a soft option in any new car I buy. It’s the same with an external safety.
Accidental discharges happen, more than we like to think. So if you want to be a badass then all good. I like a switch that disables the gun. Maybe I am weak…
