Which micro 9mm to buy?

I'm interested in buying a micro 9mm handgun. Currently I'm considering a Glock43x, Sig 365, or a Hellcat.

I see a lot of Hellcats being resold and I'm wondering if people generally don't like it after trying it out? I think I'm confident in ruling out the Ruger max 9.

I'm looking for input from people who have owned a couple of these or all of them at one point.

Or

If you have found an issue that should rule out one of the choices.

Not a Glock fan, so I'll leave that one alone.

I handled both the hellcat and 365, the trigger on the hellcat was super gritty. Ended up with the 365.

Which has been a fantastic pistol. The only thing I changed was swapping out for a flat trigger. For some reason, the curved one was beating up my finger.

Second + for the 365. Don't forget the smaller you go, the more felt recoil there will be, that's probably why you see any small 9mm for sale. I also agree the P365 factory trigger is a little lacking. MCARBO flat trigger is on my desk, but the 365 its going into is still at my FFL. As a carry gun there isn't much slicker or smoother out of the box than the SAS (Sig Anti Snag) option, but you have to get used to the idea behind the flush sight.

#2 has a factory ported barrel. I'll give a range report on whether I feel much difference between the ported and standard after I get it.

I have the MCARBO flat trigger as well. Maybe Iíll put that in today.

Given my limited experience with SD carry guns, I'm not a big fan of ported barrels on them. You never know from what position you will be firing from.

I like my Kimber Micro 9...small, reliable and accurate for its intended purposes. BTW...MidwayUSA has them on sale right now in several versions. Here's targets from the first time I tried it...seven yards...

Have the Glock and the Sig. The Glock has been retired to hidden drawer emergency grab status. I’ve spent time shooting a friend’s Hellcat along side my P365. Highly subjective. I have large hands, so for me - ergonomically - the Sig wins, no question. I wouldn’t hesitate to carry any of the three, but have stuck with the P365.

I have both the 365 and 365xl in my hands they are very accurate out to reasonable self defense distances. I have put >1000 rounds through each with no failures to feed or eject. Recently added an LCP-max into the rotation for when I need to pocket carry.

For those who can carry look at the Philster Enigma system. It had made carrying in scrubs, sweatpants, shorts much easier. Also, I find I can carry with tighter fitting tucked dress shirts.
