Nothing wrong with a G32...well, other than the spendy appetite.

I have a Glock and I have a 357sig (but that's two different guns for me). I'll stand behind the performance of either, but there are a few things (namely feel/trigger of the Glock and range ammo price of 357sig) that I don't love about each. But they'll both perform for sure.

Do yourself a favor and add a $120 Lone Wolf conversion barrel that shoots either 9mm or 40sw. Or both. I think you'll find it an extremely worthy investment that will result in a more versatile firearm that's also less costly to feed at the range. That's where Glock really shines in my opinion. Their conversion potential is vast, functional, and affordable.

BTW- My Glock is a G27, and my 357 is a Sig P226. Both are fine guns...maybe not my perfect 'mind's eye' fit, but fine guns nonetheless.

Feeding that will be expensive but fun.

Congrats on your gun. I carry a Gen3 Glock 35 .40 cal. I love this gun and haven't had any problems with it.

357 sig is expensive to shoot. But it is a grate self defense round. I agree with the lone wolf .40 or 9mm for target shooting.

I got a Lone Wolf 40-9 conversion barrel for my G23 and it works great. Also works great in my G27 so I bet the model for the G22 is GTG as well. You don't have to change the extractor or RSA either, just get 9mm mags.
