I'm at an age and time in my life that I can afford to buy pretty much any handgun I want and not worry about the money. However, the recession of the last eight dismal years is not over for many people, especially younger people many of whom are under a crushing student debt burden. The numbers of people who were dropped out of the middle class category during those eight long years is also disheartening.

A young person today with reduced opportunities from some previous generations cannot afford to buy a premium gun like the Sig Legion. Same goes for those people who lost their jobs, homes and are now living a significantly reduced lifestyle. So I'm thankful we live at a time and place when there is a large choice of good polymer framed striker fired handguns that are more affordable, and just as reliable, as many all metal guns.

My 15-month old P320 compact with Sig night sights cost $499 plus a $15 transfer fee and free shipping. Better deal than a Gen 4 Glock 19 with standard plastic sights, which is itself one of those polymer striker fired wonders that bring quality handguns within the price range of more people. I'm a real fan of this type handgun and the P320 is one of my favorites.

As some have noted, some extractor issues that have been corrected. For my 9MM Carry, I had occaisional FTE issues for the first few hundred rounds. After that, no problems whatsoever and now have 1,100 rounds through it, so that is about 800 rounds or so now of flawless operation. Not sure what my issue was - break-in, lube, etc. but whatever it was is gone now.

I signed up about a week ago. They apparently sold out very quickly the last time. I'm just hoping that they get resupplied soon!

I have a P320C and SC for about a year and a half, I change back and forth. Mostly use the SC. It has functioned flawlessly, not one issue. I have a friend who is an instructor and he puts lots of rounds down range with his P320, he recommends the pistol and also has not had one issue.

SMT The p320 use's the same recoil spring in the 9mm 357sig and 40sw . Start off with a box of +P carry ammo and you might never have had any issues . Once you get a 100 or 200 rounds fired it smooths out and softens up a bit and then it will probaby shoot the low velocity lite bullets loads too . Kahrs have the same issues being a full +P build .

Good to know, thanks. Now that I think of it, I started out using 115 grain ammo and then switched to 124 grain and have been using that ever since (though not +P). Perhaps just that little bit heavier bullet got it "over the hump". I'll have to try some 115 grain again once I run out of my 124 grain.

I have many care free rounds through my FS 320, and about 500 through my SC. Both are 9mm. I'll trust my life to either. the damned improved trigger on the SC almost makes me regret having bought a second VP9.

I picked up a 320 full size last Friday and put 100 rounds in paper over the weekend, flawless operation and very accurate. For a striker fired gun the trigger is surprisingly good, I'd recommend to anyone to try one.

Local PD had major ejection and feed problems on new 9mm carry model with 17 rounds in the magazine. Now understand they turned in their 226 was handed a case with a 320 with 3 magazines. They put their holster on their belt loaded their magazines and weapon walked 150 feet and Qualified to go back on duty. They downloaded to 16 rounds and no problems. After a few weeks of having the magazines loaded and cleaning the weapon the problem seem to have gone away with fully loaded magazines. Three hundred officers firing 200 to 300 rounds to break in weapons would be quite expensive.

I have a full size, compact and sub, all in 9mm and I haven't had any issues with them. 3000 rounds between them and no stoppages.

I wonder which magazines they have. My original mags are made in Italy and work great, my new mag is made in USA and not as smooth. No problems yet but the 17th round is hard to load and seating the magazine is difficult compared to the made in Italy mags.

I have a couple thousand rounds between my Full Size, Compact and Sub Compact, all 9mm, and I haven't had any issues with any of them. From what I can tell they all run and feel the same regardless of what I do to them.
