    Glock 31.

    Speer Gold Dot.

    PVPD's chief has a brother who is THP. Back in the early 2000's when the department was formed apparently the brother had some influence on weapon/caliber.

    Nice, my town PD is on that list. I need to get a .357 barrel for my G23... Never shot that round in any gun before.

    The Clutch Cargo keep my family safe agency. For some reason, the caliber is downright addictive.

    Hello Folks,

    I was truly hoping that this Thread had been updated since its initial Posting many years ago, but I it appears if it hasn't. Hopefully, I'll be able to compile an new, accurate roster of at least the U.S. State level Agencies who are either still issuing it & or have recently adopted it for duty purposes.

    I have noted that it is, or at least recently was the choice of several State Natural Resources Agencies, & Game Warden Dept.'s. And, amongst the users who's reports & performance notes are available, all using Agencies have been more than satisfied with it's performance in the field. Yes Folks, nobody can deny that the '9x19' is the new, 'in vogue' duty caliber choice for U.S. Law Enforcement use.

    Only time will tell if all the assorted DNT / Game Warden's will also make the switch from their .357 Sig.'s to the new current favorite, the 9mm ? Personally, I'm betting they will not transition over to 9, but rather stick with their .357's ?

    Yup, I could very well be wrong in this assumption, but I feel that due to the DNR's primary mission &, type of duties, they're varied enough from your typical L.E. Agency / Dept., that they will continue to, & be better served by the .357 Sig for their somewhat unique needs. Sooooo, if anyone here feels like it, & or has the time to bring this Post back up to 2019, I'm certain that many of us, along with myself will be very appreciative for your efforts.

    For all us Folks that feel the .357 Sig Cartridge still & will continue to have a place within the realm of U.S. produced pistol calibers, I say; 'Keep purchasing .357 Sig ammunition' !! That my friends is the absolute best way to keep the caliber alive indefinitely. As long as someone's making money on it, it will be produced. Available perhaps via somewhat limited production runs, but simply do as I do, & restock your ammunition supply when the opportunity presents itself, right ?

    That's my plan for both my 3 'unpopular calibers'. [ Not ineffective mind you, merely no longer within the public's mainstream. ] The '3' I refer to are; .357 SIG, .45 GAP, & .358 WINCHESTER. I love them all, though for varying reasons. And, even 'unpopular' calibers are routinely available, & affordable, you just have to seek them out ! THANKS

    Best, dpast32

    You can remove Alameda CO SO from your list of .357 users. They started changing from SIG .357's to SIG 9's 2-3 years ago.

    You can change the weapon listed for the (CA) CHP. They changed from S&W 4006TSW and 4013TSW (plainclothes assignments) to M&P 40 (original version) and M&P 40C.

    Last I heard, the USSS is in the process of transitioning from .357 to 9mm.

    Hi Guys, I have no idea what happened to my recent Post of this past Monday, at 09:56 ? I must have done something to my keyboard as I was typing it out or who knows ? I guess you can still decipher my intent, so I'll just leave it as it. I do apologize as it wasn't my intention to 'line out' half of the Post ? Sorry !!

    Kinda wondered if you'd done that on purpose. ;)

    Don't feel like the Lone Ranger, though, as every once in a while when my fingers are moving faster than I can keep track, I somehow manage to miss a key and unintentionally hit one of the mysterious combinations of short-cuts that makes weird things happen to the text on the monitor. :)

    The list of states has one incorrect that I actually know of. The NJ State Police carries the Glock 19.

    I'm surprised, but I'll defer to your assertion. Last I heard, NJSP was carrying the Sig after their abortive experience with the HK. In any event they're policing a state in which they're restricted to awful non-expanding 9mm ammo in magazines that hold ten or less rounds.

    Actually, I was contemplating applying for a nonresident carry permit. If so, I'd carry a G30sf loaded with a .45 ACP hardball round that used to be considered "legendary".

    THANKS Guys for the support, I appreciate it. And, just as an aside, they past 10 years have been extremely confusing for us list keepers, as it appears like an ever increasing group of Dept's & Agencies are changing duty weapons & calibers every 2 or so years. Personally, I fear they just might be changing again sometime in not too distant future, if you know what I'm getting at. If I had my 3rd cup of coffee yet, I might be inclined to go into it in detail, but for now, suffice to say, Bad guys haven't gotten any less harder to put down, thereby IMHO it just doesn't make any sense to reduce your duty caliber ? I may very well be wrong, but until I'm proven to be so via cold hard facts & compiled data, I shall stick with my assumptions. OK, lets refill that big coffee cup.
