    dp, I never claimed "vast knowledge," just more research opportunity than the average guy.

    Both the .40 S&W and the .357 SIG are proven calibers. Personally, I spend more time carrying the latter (125 grain bonded JHP chronographed at around 1430 fps out of my G31, more like 1340 out of my G33). That said, I never lost any sleep over carrying a .40, and since most guns in that platform can switch easily between calibers, it's not a big concern IMHO.

    best,
    Mas
