    I'll bet that my .357sig on my hip will do just fine with the job of protecting my life, i'll also bet that my .45 has done so in the past, and that people will still continue to argue pointlessly with a whole lot of theory, and i'll continue to be amused by it.

    Good Luck, the last few bad guys I recall had full body armor and ARs. Are you guys watching the same news I am?

    I think the bad guys have been doing their research and they are coming up with better ideas then the BWP theory.

    Not magic, Underwoods New 125gr tested.

    On a Chrono, average 5 shots 1568 fps, 682 ft lbs ME

    4" barrel Glock. Underwood rates it at 1450/604

    Go to 8:45 on the video, or you can watch it all.
    The guy tests around 10 different rounds

    Does anybody know if a 30-30 works against body armor? ( I'm an old guy who still gets spastic at the thought of owning or using an M-16 or variant.)

    In that case i'm going for shot placement, because it wont much matter which pistol cartridge you've got, and crossbreed doesnt seem to have a supertuck to fit my AR :rofl:

    Body armor does not make them invinsible even if they think they are. Unless they can rap their arms, hands, legs and face with kevlar thay can still be stopped.

    Yes, unless the vest is rated for rifle (plate inserts).

    Uz2, in the playlike world of combat against paper and steel you soon figure out the guys beating you, are out thinking you. They are 5 or 6 moves ahead of you

    You might do well at the games.

    I'll do a full write up one of these days about this video but I figured I'd share now since the 357 SIG seems to be a hot topic...:dunno:

    I'd bet that ammo is hard to find for the .357SIG.

    Underwood has it by the case!:devildance:

    The 357 Sig ROCKS! Just like the 357 Magnum but more better...... There is NO way the 9mm +++PPP+++ can compete....


    Great read but there is some HUGE ego investment here (mostly by the Facklerites). :drowning:

    That would mean that some of us favor the 147s or larger over the faster loads.

    I really like the 147s in .357 SIG, esp. in the Glock 33.

    This new Double Tap offering seemed plenty powerful out of the Glock 32 a week or so ago.

    You can tell that you're shooting a heavier bullet but muzzle blast is lower than the
    screaming 115 and 125s.

    Being a former very disappointed owner of a Chevett, the Chevett was never fast. Now the family has which includes two grown kid, has 2 toyotas, 2 hondas, 1 Infinity, and 1 Accura. The Chevett was the best thing to happen for Japanese car sales.

    1971 Chevelle SS was pretty much the Wilson Hunter 10mm. If you wanted to go in a striaght line.
