I carried a P238 for several years, fit the bill for the circumstances. Now I carry a 365X with holosun reflex sight, because that model has a milled slide and easy sight install. It is by far the best platform I’ve ever shot as my primary weapon or EDC - from the standpoint of effectiveness and capacity.I'm tossing around finding a thin, single stack 9mm for concealed carry. While I'm familiar with trigger safety pistols (Glock), I'd like to stick with an external safety. I do like the 1911 platform a lot. While recognizing there are inherent trade offs and the design was built for a full size pistol, what has been the forum's experience with smaller or micro iterations?

Both eyes open, 12 rounds of 9mm - 24/25 with a second mag - light and conceals well, and shocked me at how well I can shoot it. I still carry the 238 with gym shorts etc but the 365 has been a significant upgrade. I was thinking to replace the 238 altogether, but I’m finding it hard to part with, and I also think it would be a good option for my wife.
I love shooting the 1911 platform, but the 365 is a big improvement for me in terms of comfortable everyday firepower. I do not own any other striker fired pistols, but I also replaced my 1911 in .45 with an HK P30L in 9mm. Same reason, practical, 15 rounds and easy light mount.
Would like to buy another 1911 at some point but can’t justify it now.
