I have one and a 320 X5 Legion, but I'm still a classic DA/SA P2xx fan over all else. Don't have a SAO P2xx to compare, but my next love is the 1911.

Enthralled? No. It’s no better or worse than the other plastic options.

I really like my P320 but the allegations of it firing while holstered has caught my attention.

I think current SIG offerings are revolutionary in terms of their design. The "guts" of the firearm carrying the serial numbered part is particularly attractive. You could have any configuration you want with this system.

I question the quality of manufacture and the time on the market. These new pistols will take years to work the bugs out. It seems companies stubbornly refuse to put their products through the wringer before they sell them to the public.

Think about it. Which would be cheaper; buying 10 or 20 cases of ammo and a few months to wring these products out - or dealing with returns and angry customer email, etc, etc? I don't get the reasoning?

I'm tired of being a beta tester.

Yeah, something similar happened in Philly about 15 years ago. Actual news story.

Two LEO's in car on mid shift. One had just gotten a new S&W M60 BUG. His partner wanted to see it, so he took it out and it went BANG!

Unfortunately, after the BANG, his partner had a bullet in his head and died. Forensics showed the trigger had been pulled.

Stay away from J-frame revolvers.

Not necessarily enthralled. But it's a solid option for a striker-fired polymer-framed handgun, and I like the ergonomics better than many of its competitors.

Oy.

Guys like that drive me crazy. It's one of my pet peeves. And this is a perfect example of why it's especially bad.

Constantly flipping the retention on their holsters on/off is bad enough. Click-clack-click-clank-click, all the damn time. But I've seen a few people take it a step further and do this dumb mini-quickdraw thing while fidgeting with it, where they not only disengage the retention but also partially retract the gun in the holster a little bit before slamming it back down fully and reengaging the retention.

Sounds like this guy was one of the latter type of fidgeters. If you're in the habit of doing stupid shit like that, then this incident is the kind of stuff that happens when your finger or some other object slips into the trigger guard as you shove it fully back into the holster.

Leave the damn gun in the damn holster. Leave the retention the hell alone. If you're so ADD that you can't stand/sit there without fidgeting with any of your gear, let alone your gun, then you need to find a new line of work.

Not enthralled, but I bought a bunch of them, still have some, shoot some for fun to compete, carry one or two. And P365's.

All these stories (excuses) about firearms discharging by themselves in the holster...are bullshit.

I like the P320, in its various forms.

Not really. It’s comparable & not so to its competitors...

Good, customizable guns. Plus it is another Sig to add to the collection. My P229 is still my favorite.

No.
As stated above, a dumbass fidgiter trying to cover up his dumbfuckery created this rumor.
You bit, got reeled in and can now see what the inside of the boat looks like.
20 years from now this myth will pop back up.

If I was going to shoot for money (which I don't), I'd use my P320 X-Five.

I bought one back in 2014. Compact, OD green frame, NS, and three mags. Paid $425. I swear Sig couldn't give them away back then. It shot great but there was something about it I didn't like and I just couldn't put my finger on it. After I got it back from the upgrade the trigger just sucked. It wasn't great to begin with but it was acceptable. I lost interest and sold it.

I might get an M18 someday but it's way down on the list.

I like my P320 and P365 quite a bit and shoot the P320 very well. Had a carry action job on both. Having said that I prefer the old school P226/P229/P220 SA/DA. I carry both my P320 and P365 along with my P938 more than my other all metal sigs.

I find its modular grip to be a rather enthralling feature.

I like em, a lot. I shoot them better than I do Glocks, only thing that actually comes close for me is the H&K VP9 in regards to out of the box performance (for me).

I currently have a P320 X-Carry and a P320 X-Five. I've owned a few other variations but these two are the ones I prefer.

The XCarry frames really made it a favorite of mine.

“Really all that enthralled … ?” could be interpreted as intended to be disdainful and dismissive about the pistol and the people who own one.
Was that seeking an opinion or offering one?

I completely understand why Sig developed the P250, P320 & P365 series pistols and I am not a member of their target market, which is absolutely OK. I do not see any scenario that would have me buying a striker-fired pistol, especially a polymer framed pistol, regardless of manufacturer. I simply do not like anything about them. If I were in the market for such a pistol, I am not sure Sig would be my first choice. I would probably lean toward H&K, Walther, Canik, or FN.

Over the last 6 or so years, I have moved my interests and money into manufacturers that make pistols that appeal to me (currently CZ & DW). I still have a few classic P Series Sigs to purchase, but currently taking a bit of a time-out for a decade or two.
