    Im eyeing a sweet little Glock 31 at my local gun shop. Who still has a 357 sig Glock and uses it for defense? I've had a G32 before.

    I carry a G33 Gen4 on a regular basis with a Tulster IWB holster. I also have a G32 that I carry from time to time. Love the 357 SIG round.

    I picked up a gen 4 31 and I just love the balance of a full sized Glock. I will be carrying it over the winter with gold dots. I wasn’t sure if I’d keep it, but I think they are special guns so I will hang on to it. I also grabbed a cheap g-22 barrel for it.

    I just got Glock 23, Gen 4, with a OEM Glock 32 barrel...

    At some point, that will be an EDC.

    I've been CCing a G33 for several years now. No plans to change.

    I carry my 32 often. I have 9’s, 45’s and 40 calibers in various pistols, but that .357 sig is just righteous.

    Nice! I was curious to see how many still use it. I love the caliber.

    What? The GT 9mm cult says you must be sent to the re-education camps if you think 357sig is better than 9mm.

    I too am fond of the 357sig, and recently passed on a Gen3 G31 because it was too pricy for the condition it was in.

    When I'm feeling skinny I carry a Gen3 G33 IWB and a spare mag in my front pocket. It's easy to shoot even with my weak hand strength and it's also strangely accurate - so I never feel inadequate or undergunned whenever it's on my person. I also have a Gen4 G32C along with an unported LWD G32 barrel to go with it, but I have yet to shoot it. I suppose one of these days I'll get around to it, and will mostlikely carry it at some point ;)

    Yeah. I know when i had my G32 I shot it right next to a 3" 357 mag SP101. It was extremely hard to tell the difference in the fired rounds through media. Water/phone books etc. 357 is very strong. I also killed a nice 8 point buck with it. Worked very well.

    I have one beside the bed. A G32 that is. I even carry it when heavy coats come out.

    Although I have five Glocks, including a G33 (357 SIG), I don't carry Glocks.

    I do like the 357 SIG caliber.
    Actually the caliber is why I bought the G33.
    if I were to carry a Glock it would be the G33.

    I carry a franken gen4 Glock 32.
    I think my brother is still carrying his old gen3 32. I know he is issued a gen4 31 at work.

    The 31.4 I had kicked like a mule omg but I love the 357 in the 320 but I miss my 31. That round is such an amazing round. I prefer it to my 9mm but I like both as well as 45. 40sw I could never get into for some reason I dont know why I always though it was blah and I'm not one for caliber bashing at all.

    I have a Gen4 G31 that once was my camp and outdoors weapon, until I returned to the Ruger 357MAG 6-inch GP100 and 3-inch SP101. Revolvers IMO make better outdoors weapons. But I still carry the G31 in my truck.

    Seven years ago I converted my 1996 Gen2.5 G27 to a G33 using an OEM G33 barrel. That has been and will remain my preferred EDC weapon. Using Underwood 125-gr JHP it produces MV=1410 ft/s, ME=552 ft•lbf, and PF=176 kgr•ft/s.

    Naturally, there's no way that can match the performance of any weapon that fires magical mystical mythical modern 9x19mm super-ammo that the experts tell gullible true-believers is vastly superior to any cartridge in any other caliber that has ever been invented or even imagined. :)
