Seems most of the posters in this thread on .357 Sig, don't own one, or have shot one. That is a little like putting sugar in your diet soda!

I purchased two pistols a little bit ago. Been to the range with both of them. Glock 23C & a Glock 32.

There is a reason the FBI uses one, and the SS uses the other.

I have carried a Glock 20 over 20 years. Went looking for something in the same neighborhood, in a smaller package.

You fellas should turn loose of some of your hard earned money and get a .357 Sig so you can relate to it first hand. Snaps the wrist with a punch brighter than a 9mm. Louder.

Me personally, I prefer the .40 S&W Glock 23C. Larger projectile, same as my 10mm's, and the compensated barrel makes it possible to reacquire target quicker. I will keep the 32 as a back up gun.

While that may be true, most of the negatives associated with the cartridge don't require you to own one before you can recognize them. It's more expensive and at times harder to find than other alternatives. The available data suggests minimal superiority over other available options. The bottleneck case makes it trickier to reload.

I don't think anyone is denying its an effective SD cartridge or that its unshootable in any way. Just that for *most* people the (minor) advantages of the .357SIG don't offset the drawbacks. If a shooter is aware of those drawbacks and make an informed decision that they are worth accepting to get the benefits of the cartridge, more power to them! They will be well equipped with a reliable and effective SD round.

If be glad to carry one, too, if someone else was footing the bill.

That's okay. I'm glad you like yours but my 9mm and .45ACP guns will do everything I want in a SD gun.
