I’ve been searching for the perfect carry pistol for 15 years. I started large with a Beretta 92FS full-size. Then I suffered through the miniscule uber-compact stage. Now I’ve figured out that the confidence I gain from shooting a larger pistol with a generous ammo supply far outweighs the extra size and weight. Yes, as George Fisher once said, “When you aim for perfection, you discover it’s a moving target.” The great football-philosopher Vince Lombardi offered a different, but equally valid take: “Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence.”
Since seeing and handling the SIG Sauer P320 XCompact at the 2019 NRA Annual Meetings, I’ve been wondering if I’ve found my carry excellence.

It’s hard to beat the visibility and fast precision.
