I like it a lot, but really want to handle/buy a GEN 4 Glock 33 if they ever come out with them.

The Baby Glocks fit me better than any GEN 3 G31 or G32, but I have yet to
handle a Gen 4 G32.

People are urging both S&W and Storm Lake to offer some .357 SHIELD gun or
conversion barrels.

That would be another plus for us .357 SIG fans.

Absolutely awesome out of my G24 with the aftermarket barrel! Puts the smackdown on water-filled bottles.

Any update on your Gen 4 Glock 32?

I fondled a Gen 4 Glock 19, wished it was a G32.

An accurate, very flat-shooting round with high impact momentum over distance (distance is an important consideration in my threat envelope in many hikes), and with a conversion barrel, you can shoot .40 loads all from one platform. Lots of options. What's not to like?

Isn't the Gen 4 33 out now? I thought someone on this forum bought one...

What influences the choice of the day on caliber, bigpoppie50?

This thread got me so jacked up I bought the ammo before the gun! Plus, there was a quote on the Concealed Carry site talking about the Texas Rangers choosing 357SIG. Said in their testing it was closest thing to a death ray they had found. Men in Black came to mind. What was Will Smith's gun called? Tiny Cricket or something...

I think that any old hand on the Border Patrol can remember the Federal 9BPLE 9mm +P+ load.

They (reportedly) had somewhat better stopping power results when they experimented with .38 Supers for
a while. No idea which brand or load, just that there were more than a few shootings with the caliber.


I've shot quite a bit of 9mm+P, 9mm +P+ (esp. the old Remington +P+) and .38 Super.

The nines acted like hot Nines, nothing really special there.

While the .38 Super seemed to have a .357 magnum whallop to it on my end
in both recoil and report. I could tell that it was not a 9mm I was shooting.
Pretty snorty, but not as flippy as a forty.


The .357 SIG acts kind of like a low recoiling 9mm, but seems to out-perform the 9mm+P, 9mm+P+, .38
Super, and in the eyes of many like myself..the .40 S&W.

instantaneous recoil that's concentrated AROUND the muzzle with quite a loud report, but virtually no
recoil or muzzle rise with most loads.

However, there is still the muzzle flash factor.

That said,, The 147 gr. loads are real *****cats in .357 SIG.

They tend to be a bit slower, yet still have some bark and flash.

However..Most people will choose 115-125 grains of goodness for their carry load.

Again, I'm no expert, but most of you other common calibers as used by police and ccw
holders..lack the 'pressure curve' that many experts talk about when discussing stopping
power of this rapidly growing cartridge that many writers thought was dead as the .357
Maximum, a few years ago!

One could surmise that the split- second recoil and loud report/flash is somehow being transfered to the
target(s) i.e. dangerous felons.


That has resulted in such a dynamic stopping power record- that the cartridge has been piling
up since its inception.

No firearm or cartridge/load is perfect.. but for some the .357 SIG is the Zenith in both recoil control of
an adequate caliber..and dynamic stopping power.

The fact that the SIG is as bee-line accurate and flat-shooting as it is loud.


Is also a major factor for choosing this caliber that seems to be sweeping much farther than its long stalwart home of Texas, these days!
