    Anybody have any experience with the .357 sig round? I have an opportunity to pick one up NIB with 3 mags for $398.00 this week but haven't ever shot this caliber. The stats on it look good..

    I've got one and it's a great piece. It's definitely got more recoil than a 9mm, but it's controllable. However, realize that the ammunition is more expensive than other calibers. I reload, so it doesn't really apply to me.

    I had a gen 4 32 it was a great gun. Only reason i sold it was I went overboard buying last year and had to sell quite a few.

    You'll like it, I would guess.
    Snappy recoil, but not a bunch different from a .40, as far as I can see.

    I have a sig 229 .357sig..40/.9mm. I like shooting the .357 in it, so I decided to get the Glock 32c, and I like it too!

    Price sure sounds good to me.

    I have my 3rd .357sig Glock on the way. I like the round and the G32 is a very good size gun.

    Price is LE/Military discount. They extend it to firefighters and EMT also. Anyone can PM me and I will give you the company name. Applies to any Glock and other guns are discounted also.

    As soon as my blue label dealer gets the gen 4 32's in I'll add it to my collection.

    I am in the market for a Glock and I never really hear a lot about the .357. How is the caliber? Looking at the .45 line up right now. How's it compare? What about ammo prices/availability?

    A Gen3 G32 is my usual carry. I don't shoot it a ton because of ammo cost, but I do often enough to be able to say "yep, still good", while shooting a lot of .40 through my G23.

    The only G I have left in my 33. Fun gun, I like to shoot it side by side w/my FN FsN.

    32 is an excellent choice, even better if you roll your own ammo!!

    The G32 is my main CCW but my G31 is the fav! When your looking at 500ft.lbs/ke what is there not to like?

    I own two 3Gen Glock .357 Sig's the G31 & G33. The G33 is my EDC CCW during the winter. The .357 Sig Caliber ballistics show that is has good muzzle velocity and wound penetration on targets. Suggested loads are as follows:

    -Federal 125 grain jacketed hollow point (P357S1)

    -Hornady 124 grain JHP/XTP (#9130)

    -Remington 125 grain JHP (R357S1)

    Additional info is explained at the following link:
    http://gundata.org/cartridge/137/.357-sig/

    I have been able to find current pricing as low as $19 per 50 Rd Box and on average about $24.00, which is comparable to .45 Auto.

    Bottomline, I trust the .357 Sig caliper of Glocks with my life.

    I agree it's a great gun and the price sounds great. I had one and the recoil was more zippy than a 9 but less than a 40. I sold mine because ammo was too hard to come by and expensive.
