The 5 Handguns I Didn’t Buy In 2018 Part 1




Hon­est­ly, there are lots of guns I didn’t buy in 2018. Lots and lots. But there were some that I was real­ly look­ing for­ward to this year and after spend­ing a lit­tle time with them either at the range or sim­ply in a shop, my mind was changed enough that any inter­est was lost. It’s like they had told me they were lib­er­als. I just couldn’t waste time with them.

Most­ly the rea­sons are just small, innocu­ous details that mat­tered just enough. How­ev­er some, like ridicu­lous delays and seri­ous per­for­mance ques­tions were enough to just straight up avoid.

Let’s start at the begin­ning, but mind you, these are not ranked in any way.

Number 1. Sig Sauer P365

The Why?

It’s just anoth­er micro pis­tol meant to solve a prob­lem that real­ly doesn’t exist. I com­plete­ly under­stand want­i­ng some­thing easy to con­ceal, but that prob­lem has been solved many times over (Glock 26, 27 any­one?). But there was way too much hype sur­round­ing this sil­ly gun. I could link to a cer­tain video from some­one who I gen­er­al­ly respect and hold in high regard, who real­ly kind of spazzed out about this thing.


It’s a sin­gle stack 9mm that holds 10+1 with an option­al 12+1. So what? The bore height is a mile high, it feels very awk­ward in my hand, it’s just anoth­er and more of the same. This wasn’t rev­o­lu­tion­ary in any way. Over­all it was sim­ply a hard pass.

MSRP: $599 — STREET PRICE: $499
