    I could not disagree more. Every Agents I have used were much duller than the Trijicon HD's, talking lamps and the reflectiveness (Not a word Will) of the colored front sight. The XR's fix the obnoxious sharpness of the HD's too. The Agents are priced way better though, and would serve most great. I just don't care for them very much being an avid HD user since their release.

    Night Fissions offerings are about on par with the Ameriglo's for a good price as well. The free market is creating so many great options!

The P365 has better sights, a very good trigger, and greater capacity (you can now even get a 15 round magazine) than the Shield 9. Both have hard to load magazines-stiff springs-when new. Both were very reliable and accurate for me; the P365 has nearly 2200 rounds through it and the Shield 45 had about 1600 through it before I sold it (after buying the SIG). We all have different grips and presentations, but the SIG points more naturally for me. They both carry well, but the SIG feels much smaller when carried. For the down side, the SIG is more expensive (the best price I've seen recently is about $470) and the magazines a pricy at about $35 or more.
    Shield 45 has both 1.0 and 2.0 versions. The 2.0 has a much better trigger than the 1.0, and will also have the "M2.0" on the side, while the 1.0 will not have anything but the caliber.

    I have the Sig P365. The handgrip didnít feel all that great to me. I came across an aluminum handgrip module with a beaver tail and palm swell. It fits like a glove now. I love this thing. I can fire it one handed with a sure grip.

    And to add to the options, Sig is coming out with the P365XL, closer in size to the Shield w much higher mag capacity and built in beavertail.

    I have both since I acquired the P365 a few months ago. I’ll be getting rid of my Shield. Yes the grip is small but it’s very concealable, nice trigger, very accurate and light weight. I’ve owned three M&P pistols and several Sigs. I’ve never had an issue with any of them.

    Iíve got a Shield 1.0, G43, G26, and P365.
    The idea was to keep the one I like best and sell the other one, but I keep not wanting to sell one, then another great carry gun comes along.

    Nearly 1200 rounds through the G43, less than 1000 through the Shield and about as many through the 365.

    No issues with the Sig or S&W. Added a Talon grip to the G43 along with a flat Glock trigger, Glock night sights, and the latest connector.

    I had read about some mag springs getting kinked in some Shields so I put Wolff springs in all my mags and added a Talon grip.

    Now it seems like I shoot all of these guns about the same but I shoot the G26 like a full size gun.
    (I have small/medium hands.)

    The Shield is my truck gun and I rotate between carrying the 365 and the 43.

    For me the G43 seems a little easier to carry/conceal for some reason.

    YMMV

    ETA:
    I also use the Maglula loader.
    Itís life changing. :-)

    For some reason, the G26 shoots better than a short, tubby pistol should! I did finally part with mine; the P365 is just too much easier to hide.
    KUSA, that grip conversion is neater than hell; can I ask where you got it, and what it cost? I'm guessing there will be beaucoup options for the Sigs, large and small, since the grip frame is just a hollow shell. Sig itself offer some.
