Well, I seemed to have strayed further than you. In addition to my three 10mm pistols, and two 10mm carbines, I have a SIG P229 with both the .40 cal S&W and 357 SIG barrels. Kind of nice to swap between two calibers with a mere barrel change that probably tokes me about 30 seconds or less to do. Uses the same slide, the same springs, and the same mags for either caliber. And better yet, at the 7 yards I practice with them at both calibers have to exact same POA. I don't have to apply any Kentucky windage to my shots when I change calibers.
Some people think I'm paranoid because I have so many guns. With all my guns, what do I have to be paranoid about?

Mission accomplished...

I'm packing the Glock 32 in the Versa Max 2, night sights installed, 40 rounds of 125 grain Gold Dot on board (the good loads, Speer part number 54234).

Range report in a couple of days.

I noticed that a long time back, I bought a .357 SIG factory barrel for one of my G23's. It's a great round, accurate, can't get any better reliability with feeding, and the 32 is a perfect size concealment/defense firearm.

Believe it or not, I considered swapping my 29SF for a Gen4 G33. I had a 33, but it went to the wife in the divorce.
The 10mm Auto, created by Zeus, replaced Thor's hammer, perfected by Jeff Cooper, and endorsed by Larry Vickers AND the Nuge! It exudes awesome! :D

Range day today.... My wife with her new Gen 4 G19, me with my G40 and the new G32.

100 rounds of Speer 125 Gold Dot (54234) through the G32, it ran like a Swiss watch... Not a single bobble of any kind.

Accurate!!! Very, very accurate!!! Glock triggers, as we all know, are like a box of chocolates... Never know what you're gonna get.... The G32 has the best out of the box Glock trigger I've ever came out with yet, I haven't touched it and may not (I generally do the 25 cent trigger job on all my Glocks).

The G32 has a very good wall before the break, and breaks clean.... Easy to stage.

Recoil... Not an issue, its easier to shoot than the G36 was with hot +P 230 grain ammo.

Muzzle blast.... Yeah, she's loud, but no worse than a snubby .357 would be.

Overall I'm extremely happy with my new carry pistol... Taking 2 years to do the research before switching pistols paid off.

No pics, the range was pretty busy today... Didn't wanna spend any more time down range than necessary.

A bit late to the fun here but my 2 cents.   In NJ u have to apply for  pistol permits so I did but put in for 4.   First pistol collected

Glock 40 :)

Next was supposed to be the Glock 32 357 sig.  Handled it and ugg didn't like the feel in my hand.  I tried to like it for a bit but then figured look at what I am doing trying to like something.  So no buy.   Then went to my other desire HK VP 9SK LE.   Fit like a freaking glove.  It feels so good I can't put it down and walk home with my first HK.

But while I was there I did handle the Glock 31 much better feel to me and next month the 31 gen 4 will be coming home with me in 357 sig.   Always wanted this round to be apart of my collection and it will be.

With my last permit I will be adding a 44 mag of some sort as I dearly miss one.   Dan Wesson,. S&W performance center or something else.  Will see. But I have time to figure this one out.

But can't wait to add a 357 sig to my collection.   Loaded with Underwood's finest it will be my house gun for sure replacing my S&W SSR 357 mag.

I personally would get a Glock 22 (same frame as the 31) and then order a 357 sig barrel.  Most barrel companies make a barrel for the Glock 22 to go to 357 sig, but seems like no one makes a barrel the other way.

Myself...

I just don't like the 40... The very first CCW pistol I ever bought was a 40 and frankly it was a letdown all the way around.

The 357 Sig does everything the 40 promised to do, but didn't.

More power, more penetration, better one shot stops... And does it with full and complete chamber support even with factory barrels, which was a major problem early on in the 40's life, and could still be considered a problem to this day, less of one now though.

I know the 357 Sig costs more... But when you compare the rounds based on performance the 357 beats the pants off the 40... Except maybe in competition, the 40 has its place there and for good reason.

All good.

If I had a limit, I would want the flexibility of changing between the two calibers with just a barrel change.  But if you know you don't want the 40 barrel ever, the 31 seems likea  good choice.

I didn't mean for that post to sound so directed at you, lol.... Sorry... It wasn't.

Your post did make me think of it, but I wasn't trying to say getting the 22 was a bad idea.

What Ok? You didn't get the springs? I have Wolfe non-captive 21# in my G29. Really tame them.

They are strong though, you need a good grip on the slide.
How powerful is 10mm? Well, see those craters on the moon?

Another admirer of the .357 SIG...

Have a Glock 19 that I added a brand new take-off 23 slide and bought a Lone Wolf .357 SIG barrel. Couple of days ago bought a brand new 19/3 lower for $109 on Gunbroker so when it come in the 23 slide will have a permanent home.

Last year when I bought a Glock 40/4 picked up a Lone Wolf 6" barrel that really makes the SIG smoke. And laser accurate.

Picked up a Glock 29/3 a few weeks ago and today while on the Lone Wolf website saw where they are closing out the last of their LW barrels and picked up a ported .357 SIG conversion barrel for $75 delivered...

Guess one day I'll need to start loading for it...

Pretty much how i feel.    357 sig all the way , so no need or desire for a 40.   G 31 357 sig all the way for me..

357 Sig., do it more!

Another 357 Sig fan here!!  Have 357 sig barrels for all my Sigs!

Reloading, once you know the set-up is just as easy as any other round. And cost the same too (brass may cost more, BUT after first load, that is a wash).
