Don't ya just hate it, "want it, but don't need it"? I'm doing that same mind wrestle right now over the new Springfield XDe, but as it's a might more affordable, I might end up with it. My main problem is it's available in 9x19 or .45ACP. The .45 holds 6 or 7 rounds depending on magazine used and the 9 is 8 or 9 rounds IIRC. I'm tending toward the nine as I shoot my nines more than .45s because I have more brass and other reloading components for 'em and ammo is cheaper. As to effectiveness, IMHO, 6 of one, half dozen of the other. BUT, I have a nice Kel Tec sub 9 as well as a full size Ruger P85. The Springfield is compact and light, but the Kel Tec is compacter and lighter. Maybe I'll talk myself out of it, or not, who knows? I don't have a sub compact .45, so that would be an addition to the arsenal that wouldn't repeat itself.I was going to post, but am glad I searched first. I really, really want that P365. I don't need it, but I want it. Hoping for the price to drop a bit after a year or two.
