Downsizing

Indy Arms had a nice deal on the Sig Sauer P365 over the weekend, part of their NRA weekend sale, so I wandered over with the son-in-law to see what they’d give me on my five-year-old Walther PPX that I really liked but which I rarely took out to shoot.*  I won’t say I got what I wanted for it, but it was enough to sweeten the deal on the P365 plus two 12-round magazines (so I have a total of four, two 10-round that came with the gun and the two 12-round bought separately).  This photo actually shows it oversize** on my 1920×1024 monitor:

I have a DeSantis “SuperFly” pocket holster coming for daily carry.  The gun itself fits nicely in my front pocket and barely prints without the holster, but pocket carry needs a holster if only to keep pocket lint away from the gat.  For a fat boy who isn’t comfortable carrying IWB, that will work great.

I cannot say enough about the staff at Indy Arms.  We had a great time.  The boy is looking for something smaller than his Glock for everyday carry, and the only thing that stops him from buying a P365 after seeing one is the mag capacity.  But he saw a couple of smaller Gs and some other stuff in the cases that had him thinking.  I think he has a Glock 17 in 9mm currently (and could not tell you which Gen but certainly it’s not new), which is what he carried when he was a cop.

* With my wrists getting worse all the time and the addition of tennis elbow in my right arm since last August or so, big handguns are pretty much right out for me.  I don’t even shoot the 1911 anymore, although I keep it in my office as a holdout weapon.

** Oversize because I run the blog page at 120% magnification…if I cut it back to 100% the photo is slightly undersize.  Your mileage may vary.  You can look the specs up over at Sig Sauer’s page.
