glock 31, 357 sig

charley9toe,
what do you want to use it for? Is there a reason you are only looking at Glocks?

357 sig

I would buy it in the Sig and not the glock. Glock is a piece of crap.

Here here,
I agree with you, glocks serve their purpose. I wouldn't be so crass as to call them a piece of crap, maybe fake dog poo as they are the "plastic" gun, but crap?!

This coming from an owner of a glock

Glock 31, 357SIG

I'm very familiar w/GLOCK's, and know that they work. I like and own other brands as well, especially SIG. I looked at the SIG in that caliber and basically flipped a coin. Lastly, I feel the .357 SIG is a better round than the 40 S&W which I have for self defense, because of its diversity in capability. I think ?... but thats why I'm asking for input; good or bad.

check out this article, it might shed some light on your dilemna, remember that the .40 has been around longer than the .357sig, the 357sig ammo costs more as well, at least it did when I was looking about 6 months ago.

tks for another data source. They all help. I've had a GLOCK 23,since 1990 and carried it on a regular basis for a while so I'm very used to it. 40 S&W ammo in the early 1990's was exhorbitant also. It does limit your practice. The GLOCK 31 has a lot different feel than the G23.Don't know that I like it.

Why not just keep your Glock 23 and buy a .357 Sig. barell for it then you got both calibers.
I have a 23 and I love it.
.40 is plenty enough for me.
Remember if you are going to use the .357 sig for personal defense.
It is designed to be a penetrator round. Which can cause problems in the house with family members in next rooms.
It was designed for law enforcement that needed to fire through windshields and cover of various sorts.
Hope this helps

Tks, for the input. I have a ported .357SIG barrel for the G23 and it works well.
I know the 357SIG penetrates but so does any round through drywall
(except the frangible stuff(maybe)).Try out a 38 special 147gr wadcutter, 38 special hollowpoint or #4/#6 birdshot, black powder 44 pistol; on drywall, it might put a pucker in ur pants to know someone might be on the other side. Sorry for the tangent. I'm just poking the "jello"
