Very zen of you but there are no 'nationwide gun bans' coming to a place near you. Maybe after Jan 2021, but not now..sky still in place.

Good grief Charlie Brown. I found a comic amusing and that requires a reply directed at me? The point of that xkcd comment is that's how people act on the internet in general. They treat disagreements that really aren't that critical as if they were, such as this one. It's generally amusing, hence I laugh (and also because I appreciated someone else reading xkcd). For a guy that's moving on you won't drop it.

Again, because others keep bringing it up, including asserting I stated things I never stated. Funny how that works.

Someone pondered, I gave an opinion, I gave my basis for said opinion, and it clearly hurt some feelings as here you (and others) are still bringing it up pages later.....oops

Amazing how fragile internet egos are, but thanks for further proving my point.

Lol, I'm still bringing it up? Oh man, the irony. All I've been doing is responding to the times you keep quoting or referring to me for reasons I still don't grasp (such as finding a comic funny). As for my opinions, they're just my own, I'm merely sharing them like I've always done and will continue to do. My "feelings"? Man who knew we had psychologists here.

It sounds interesting.

Does anyone know when this is supposed to be widely available, or is it already shipping?

If it sold at Kahr CW prices it might have a chance. Price point/quality ratio is really the only way to distinguish your product in this crowded market. Taking Glock mags helps, but the Glock takes them too.

I’ll ask again, what is ‘headed our way’?

Gallery of Guns has them listed. MSRP $421 to $686. Says "out of stock" on all, so maybe they haven't even received them in yet?

Without having scoured the whole thread, here are my thoughts:

1. I like seeing more competition in the market.
2. I'm kind of impressed with Mossberg. IIUC, this is its first handgun in a century. Kind of brave to introduce it into the subcompact 9mm carry market. That's where the demand is, but that's also where the competition is.
3. I wonder if a G43 will take Mossberg mags. That would kind of stand to reason, but I'm not an engineer.
4. If I owned a G43 and wasn't real happy with it, it sure would be nice to pick one of these up and know that my G43 mags would work.
5. I kind of like the removal of the striker for takedown. I've never been real happy with having to pull the trigger on my Glock for that.
6. I'm not real excited about the crossbolt safety, but I understand that it's optional.

I think it is overpriced. Mossberg is known for less expensive, reliable firearms.

This is prices higher that Ruger, Smith & Wesson M&P, etc.

not good. Had to be priced better to have a shot. Why would I buy this over the LC9 or M&P Compact or Shield?????

How can you possibly know it is over priced without very much knowledge about this gun? Many reviewers are comparing it to a Glock 43 and quite possibly even a better pistol. How much is the Glock?

Why would you buy this over a Ruger LC9 etc? Let's wait and see. I have a LC9S, owned a Shield, but no longer. Yes, I might pay more above them if the gun deserved it. But we really do not know what the gun will sell for. Why is the Glock so expensive? I would not pay the prices they ask.
Suppose this Pistol is a better gun and you could get if for less than a Glock. Some might find that a great deal.
Why is the Sig 365 $500.00 or more? I shot a lot of rounds through that gun. Nice gun, does not fit my hand, shoots nice, but nothing great, and I have shot better. It should be priced around the same as other Micro 9mm's. $350 range. And I would prefer to put my own night sights on.

Well the P365 might be more because it does offer different capacity than the others so that utility might justify some cost and the included sights are quite good and certainly add some cost compared to the stock sights on most pistols. If your argument is you'd rather pick your own sights okay, but you have to realize there is a bit more cost there.

Hard to tell if it's overpriced based off of an MSRP.
