    I pocket carry a bg380 everywhere. I can even carry with gym shorts with this thing. When I want something bigger I have an XD-e. As you may notice, both guns have double action triggers which is usually a must for me for carry. Problem is the xd-e is slim but long and hard to conceal anywhere where I don't look lopsided.

    I was just perusing the gun counter for a revolver for my parents and decided to give both the hellcat and p365 a hold.

    HOLY shit the hellcat feel like a warm bed at home to me. But striker fired and no safety. The p365 has a safety, but it didn't feel as good in my hand. It was a little narrow. I did a quick look at problems with each and immediately saw the MIM firing pin in the 365 so I'm out unless the collective can convince me different the hellcat wins.

    So what would y'all get and why?

    Easy for me. The Hellcat, because that’s what I carry. With the new 15 round mag

    To each their own. I thought the hellcats trigger was terrible. 365 felt awesome with extended base plates and it’s flat trigger. Way better trigger on the 365.
    So I have 2 xdm's, an xd and an xde. Is it any different from a normal springfield trigger?

    I went from g30s to g19 to g43 to g43x to the Hellcat. I will say it’s a bit snappy for a 9mm but the look at its size and weight. But the fact that it came with an 11 and 13 round mag from the factory was a plus. And you have 3 different options as far as no red dot, an rmr cutout from factory with the cover plate, or with an rmr and a compensator from the factory is a nice touch. I chose the middle option and put a Romeo zero on mine. One word of warning/caution on the Romeo zero is I had to have a gunsmith modify the metal cover plate that comes with the Romeo zero. There are two little post on the top of the slide that had to have holes drilled into the mounting plate and the screw length for the rmr has to be at e certain max length. The hex wasp works well with the gun. And it has to be a mini rmr like the wasp or Romeo zero.

    most that have shot them side by side will say one shoots way better than the other

    also, the P365 doesn’t have to come with the external safety lever (mine doesn’t)

    which? The counter guy said he preferred the 365 as it was smoother.

    I also carry a 642 airweight with +p and had a shield in .40 so one being a little snappier shouldn't bother me.

    I preferred the fatter grip of the hellcat on first impressions
