Hmmm. Looking back at it, I'd have to say you're right. How about "somewhat shorter"? Really, though, don't feel compelled to become involved in an extended discussion or debate. I don't have much interest one way or the other in how the popularity of the .357SIG develops, or fails to develop. I have enough on my plate with the 3 major defensive pistol calibers that I own and use. I can certainly support any .357SIG guns that may come across my bench, anyway. Not a big deal. Talk to you tomorrow.
