While 3 extra rounds are nice to have in a gun that is hardly any bigger than your P938, I have a feeling if you are used to and like the P938 controls and trigger, you might not like moving over to the P365. You then have to ask yourself how much those three extra rounds mean, particularly if that means not only buying the new gun, but buying all the accessories you mention.In the same boat, sort of... I've been carrying a P938 for 6 years now and am happy with the platform, performance and overall comfort of CC'ing this firearm. Really hate to spend $500.00+ on a P365 and then another $150.00 - $250.00+ on a holster and a few other accessories. I know the story about the 3 extra rounds but I carry a spare mag or 2 at all times and the reality of getting into a full blown gun battle are pretty slim to none. I'd rather walk away from a confrontation than start one. Right now I'm good with my 7 + 1 P938 for now - guess I'll see how I feel down the road a bit.
This got me thinking though, there is a hack out there to use P290 8rd mags in a P938. Adds about half an inch to the grip height, but considering the P938 is only 3.9" to begin with, there's plenty of room to work with before it becomes unconcealable. Unsure of reliability, but did recall seeing an article where someone Frankenstein'd it all together enough to work.
