I just wanted to post a couple of pics for those that might be interested. I just put the Holosun 407K miniature sight on my P365 XL. It is a red dot with “shake to awake“ features that fits perfectly and comes with the mounting screws for about 200 bucks. It has a 6MO a red dot, it’s sturdy compared to the sig offering, it’s made of aluminum.

The standard size P365 has the sig green laser which works great. It’s the lima 365 and it’s about 200 bucks in green and 150 bucks in red

DM Bullard in Texas makes a nice IWB holster for the 365 with the laser.

If I get the chance tomorrow step up to the range and see which auxiliary sighting mechanism I like better.

Nice. I love my P365. So little and light I hardly know it is there. Great little formidable gun.

That looks good. I have a Bullard for a P220-he does nice work IMO. I'd love to hear a report on the XL w/Holosun, been thinking about such a rig.

Cool beans. Holosun makes good sights.

Nice find on the holosun. Those are hard to get. it Took me a few months to find mine, and I agree they seem better built than the sig Romeo zero.

It may take me a couple days to shoot. My wife does mediation by zoom and even though the range is a few hundred feet away it’s still pretty disruptive to her.

Full disclosure, I have some weird thing going on with the retina in my right eye. The red dot looks really large and blurry to my right eye or both eyes but small and appropriate with my left eye. My initial impression is that the green laser will work better for me. I think instinct and natural pointing ability gets the pistol where it needs to be for the first “emergency round“ when you fire in defense. With aimed fire, I can see the red dot being helpful and fast compared to regular sights.

Bottom line, I am an admitted “gadget guy“ and easily convinced to buy stuff I may not even need.

That is strange. I noticed the same thing with mine, except my left eye sees the large blob and my right sees the perfect dot.

I can never seen a crisp red dot on any sight. Mine looks like a snapshot of hot lava splattered on the lens.

I would bet that those of you who have the red dot distorted issue have an astigmatism in at least one eye

Well, I got out yesterday late afternoon to shoot. I did not have a chance to shoot the red dot but I will tell you the green laser is right on the money. From 15 yards it was flipping that little two or 3 inch flapper in the center of the steel target pretty reliably. With the issue I have with my eyes, I’m fairly certain the green laser is going to be the better performer but we will see.

I also shot the Dan Wesson ECP .45 and my Stacatto 9 mm 2011. The Wesson shot great but, the star of the day was the Stacatto. To miss something you almost had to try. Recoil is minimal, it’s back on target almost immediately and you can shoot it fast. I shot left hand, right hand, laying on the ground etc. and was very impressed.

For cool weather I think it will be perfect for carry. They make a staccato C2 which has a little shorter grip. Rather than spend another two grand for another staccato I’m going to see if I can buy just the grip. They come with 20 round magazines as back up and, dollar for dollar, I am very impressed. The competitor for the C2 is the Wilson combat EDCX9. I don’t have the Wilson combat but, comparing the staccato to my Wilson combat 1911, they are pretty darn close in machining, tolerances and construction. The staccato is two grand and the Wilson combat is almost 3 grand.

I broke it !!!!

There I was at the range. Just inserted a fresh magazine and the trigger started flopping around like a fish out of water.

The trigger return spring broke. It's an easy repair, but with all the holiday mail/shipping it took about ten days before I could get the replacement.

As a range buddy said, 'it's not like you haven't shot a million rounds through it'.

I used to think of springs as lasting forever but no longer. I'm also starting to keep a rough tally of how many rounds each firearm spits out and pre-order replacement springs.

The guide rod and recoil spring assembly is en-route.

A few months late to the dance, but..............................

Just ordered an XL to take over for my Shield. Will be getting the green laser and probably a red dot, either the SIG Romeo or the Holosun HS507K-X2.

I would bet that those of you who have the red dot distorted issue have an astigmatism in at least one eye

Count me in that group, astigamatism in both eyes, but on a positive note my last eye doc appointment doc told me it was getting better. My dad had it too and his essentially went away in his later years 🤷‍♂️
