    Just got back from the range with my new to me gen3 G33. Bought it from a guy I work with. He had fired only 75 rounds through it. Still has some of the gold factory lube in it. Only put 50 rounds through her just to see how she works. He told me she had some snort to her. Pretty snappy but, you can hang on and do good work with it. 150 to 200 rounds a session would probably be just right. Overall a pretty nice little package with some snort coming out the front and to make it all equal a little snap in return.

    The G33 gen3 was my first Glock purchase and it is still my CCW. And I also bought mine from a coworker.

    A Glock in that condition is usually better than new because some of smoothing out is already done.

    I have a gen4 G33 assembled out of various parts. Nice gun.

    I think you are going to love the 357 sig...you may want to start reloading for it...savings can be SIGnificant...

    Try some underwood ammo 357sig. They use the gold dot bullet but crank it up to its design velocity. I chronod it at over 1500 fps consistently out of my G32. As comparison Speer gold dot was 1350ish.

    Congrats on the new G33. It is one of my favorite to carry, and definitely one of the more fun Baby Glocks to shoot at the range. I bought an LWD 40-9 conversion for mine, and liked it so much that I went to picked up a G26 Gen4!

    I load .357SIG after I broke down and bought the Dillon dies. I went through my nice stockpile of that caliber pretty quickly, and decided that I may as well just spring for the dies and load it myself. Couldn't be happier! (Well, except if Glock would release a longer-slide version, like the G34/35...)

    Here's mine, with my favorite IWB holster, Comp-Tac MTAC:

    I run XS Big Dot sights on mine, too. Here it is next to my G20SF:

    Enjoy yours!

    Reloading for it for sure. I have been reloading for 357Sig since around 2002. By far my favorite round for handguns. I have had a HK USPc, Sig P226, 229,& 239 in 357. By far my fave is my G32. Carry her everyday for off duty. Going to get some more trigger time in with the G33 to see if she will take over for the G32.

    I bought my G33 after extensive research regarding the subcompact semi-autos. It is a blast to shoot. I only have two glocks (G21 and G33) but they are both my primary pistols. Obviously the 21 for home defense and the 33 for everything else. They are both pricey to shoot but quite frankly I don't care.
