The SIG Sauer P365 represents one of the more innovative concealed carry firearms in several years. The 9mm single stack handgun has served as one of the most popular genres of handguns for the American CCW market. Examples include the Glock 43, Ruger LC9, Smith & Wesson Shield, and the Walther PPS. Each of these pistols are very thin and compact and usually hold only 6-7 rounds in the magazine.
The reason why the P365 is so innovative is because it is of the same approximate height and width as the typical 9mm single stack pistol, and yet has a double stacked magazine with twice the capacity at 10 rounds. The P365 XL is capable of holding 12-15 rounds depending on the magazine. There’s simply no other pistol on the market now that is of the same compact size of the P365 and offering the same level of firepower.
