Make sure they're fully seated and expanded before firing in self defense. I'd probably keep shooting glasses next to my ear plugs as well. Can never be too safe

Right. And also deodorant. You sweat a lot under stress and body odor can be distracting too. Be sure to evenly apply 2 layers before you pick up your safety glasses and earplugs, and don't forget to leave the safety on and no round in the chamber until you're ready to fire. Don't want a stress induced negligent discharge either.

What did somebody forget to engage their safety and shoot the dogs front teeth out? Or are we blaming that on the Glock shooters?

At that point you might as well go around door to door and inform your neighbors to apply their ear plugs, safety glasses, and deodorant as you will be firing your weapon in self defense when you return home. I'd probably stop the bg and ask him to put some Depends on so he doesn't chit on your floor when you shoot him too. Slippery floors are a safety hazard you know...

If your intentions are just range use buy the G17. Ammo is cheaper for the 9mm. I sold all my .40's and left myself with .45 acp's and 9mm's. I don't care for the high pressure recoil the .40 provides shooting targets or paper all afternoon .
Also might take a look at a G34 . Its their competition 9mm pistol . Super sweet trigger out of the box and very very accurate

And if you're a big enough **ssy to think you need earplugs and eye protection for a self defense encounter, you should probably be wearing depends yourself. Just in case things get a little intense.

Mild sarcasm...that's why I wouldn't use the .357 sig as a home defense gun...unless it was suppressed.

Welp, I guess I'm in big trouble with my unsuppressed AR-15 and a few 30rd mags full of M193.

Makes a .357mag sound like a squirt pistol and shoots about a foot and a half long flame out the front of the barrel in low light even with the flash suppressor.

Touching off a .357 sig in a room or hallway in a house would be similar to having a flash-bang go off at the end of your arm.
I have done a lot of night hunting. I have never been blinded by the muzzle flash of any shotgun or rifle. My slug gun has large muzzle flash, much larger than any handgun. When your adrenaline is rolling the report of any gun will not make your ears ring. Even if the report made your ears ring, it's better to be alive with your ears ringing than dead because you didn't get an instant stop.

And by the way a .357 has NOTHING on a flashbang. At all.

I'll second that. I'll also agree that in a high stress situation like a home invasion where you are forced to use deadly force you will never notice the report or muzzle flash. Don't worry about it.

Hell I've been so excited/focused deer hunting on occasion I didn't remember hearing the rifle or feeling the recoil.

If I start hunting with ear plugs my buddies will never let me hear the end of it!
