    Would there be any potential legal problems to carrying a glock 40 converted to 357Sig in a self defense shooting?

    Romadoc, no problems that I can personally foresee, unless you left the scene and changed the barrels after the shooting or something like that.

    But, hell, 40 years ago, I wouldn't have foreseen problems with using handloads in self-defense, or a deliberate justifiable self-defense shooting with a gun that might have a lighter than factory spec trigger, and the years proved that such problems did come up.

    Personally, if I want to carry a Glock in .357 I carry a G31 or a G33, and if I want one in .40 I'll carry a G22 or a G27. But I know people who carry guns that started as .40s with .357 SIG barrels in them, and I honestly don't worry about it.
