    I have never handled, let alone fired the P290, and I never really looked into that model before. I own, and occasionally carry a Sig P365 (which I bought from SI) and it has been flawless so far. Honest question - What makes the P290 so much better?

    The Sig 290 RS is a true double action giving you many more carry options than a striker fired weapon.

    Oh, I didn't realize that (assumed it was striker fired at first glance). I can see how that changes it's usefulness.

    I purchased a used 290 from Gabe a couple of years ago and love it.

    With a G19 AIWB, the 290 slips into my waistband at the 7 o’clock position as a BUG and the 9-ish pound, long-travel trigger lets me do that. While not ambidextrous I do have some strong left-handed tendencies and can run it left handed from the 7 o’clock position if needed, so it serves me well there. During the winter months it goes into one of the pockets of my outer coat, right-side if I’m driving, left otherwise.

    Although tasked as a bad-breath distance gun I’ve been impressed with it’s accuracy, but it took a lot of dry-firing to utilize it.

    My one complaint is the same as the OP’s and that is a spare mag floating in a pocket will relieve itself of all but 2 or 3 rounds in short order.

    It’s too bad the good idea fairies decided to discontinue it.

    The CZ 2075 RAMI is a good choice in that size.

    The RAMI is a great little gun, but its width puts it more in the G26 niche. It’s also a hefty little sucker, half again the weight of the P290.

    I have an XDs in .45 and I like it also. Also, I have an XD9 with several thousand rounds through it. I've carried it often and used it as a loaner gun during my nine years of teaching concealed carry classes, and it has never had a malfunction. I love my Glocks (I've owned a a 19, 22, 26, 27, and 30) but I've had more malfunctions with them than the XD. Mine is a darn good gun!

    I bought a 365 because it holds a bunch of rounds for its size. I have carried a few times in the last year. Not a bad weapon, but not thrilled about it. Magazines are expensive, and I just prefer the Glock platform.
