ever since i bought a 32 barrel for my 23 its always hard deciding which to carry. both are great in there own respect. i actually shoot the sig better but man that is a loud round. just thinking what it would be like shooting that in an enclosed area, i already have hearing issues [would somebody answer that phone]. the .40 has more options on rounds you can use but you don't ever read about a 357sig not getting it done. decisions, decisions .
