I ignored the P320 for a long time. Having shot someone’s stock P320 Compact years ago, I found that it combined the bad from the P229 (high bore axis, bulky weird grip) with the bad from Glock (shit trigger). That was enough for me to ignore it for several years, while it started to catch on in a big way here in the US.
I really started paying attention again when I saw the potential that the design has. Using the serialized guts, companies were starting to come out with some awesome gadgets like chassis to make PDW style guns, different slides and frames, things like that. I realized that it would be a valuable firearm to have, because you could swap the FCU out and make pretty much anything you wanted. I continued to ignore it, however, as I was happy with my P229 and my M&P 2.0.
Then I got the P365, and immediately swapped out the small frame for the XL frame. I was convinced, this is an awesome concept. You can get parts shipped to your door and make whatever the hell you want. I decided I had to have a P320 as well.
