    Hey all,
    I just bought a Glock 33 last night. This is my first Glock and my first gun in 357 sig. Any tips you guys can give me on this gun would be appreciated.

    Congrats on your new baby! Advice - Hang on tight, she doesn't like to be limp-wristed, cause she's got plenty of bark and bite for her size!

    Make sure she will cycle your carry ammo. Repeatedly. ;Q

    Go to gunsprings.com and get a steel guide rod and extra power springs to suck up just a little of the snap.

    Makes shooting the G33 nice.

    The G33 is my favorite gun right now.

    I carry it every day to and from work (dept issues H&K USP40s for work) and haven't had a single gun problem in over 2000 rounds.

    Stay away from S&B ammo from Cheaper Than Dirt - bad primers have led to many FTF for several of us.

    Go out and shoot the heck out of it - what a blast. As with all carry guns, be sure to shoot 100 rounds or so of your chosen carry ammo to be sure there are no issues between your particular gun and that particular hollowpoint.

    Speer Gold Dot in one form or another appears to be the carry cartridge of choice --- at least until Double Tap's 357 stuff is released here shortly.

    Enjoy it for what it is first, then make any changes that fit YOUR preferences once you are familiarized with the weapon.

    Have fun!
