Default Glock 32, .357 Sig. Why? Well, why not.

Picked up this Glock 32 a few minutes ago. It has been on my mind for a couple days. My first .357 Sig. Interesting and useful caliber. It fits all of my Glock 19 holsters. Can use a conversion barrel to shoot .40. I do not have any .40, so that's just another rabbit hole to go down.

I welcome comments regarding .357 Sig, the Glock 31-33, any other related topic. Whatever you want. Anyway, here's a gun:

357 Sig is a great caliber. I just sold my Glock 33 a week ago only because I'm shifting to the 45ACP. I found the recoil much more straight back than muzzle flip compared to my 9mm or 40. I don't know if it's the cartridge, firearm or some combination but the stout recoil is quite manageable.

I have a Glock 32, the only Glock I own. I enjoy the .357 Sig cartridge, and it works well in the Glock. The .357 Sig is a very flat shooting cartridge, Iíve had no problem keeping all my shots in the center of a TQ19 target at 100 yards. The Glock and the .357 Sig are a good combination. When I have to go to Philly I carry the Glock 32.

I bought my Glock 32 at my local cop store a few years ago. They had 1,000 round cases of agency trade in Lawman .357 Sig for $200. That seemed like a deal so I bought a brand new Glock 32 for $398, and all the .357 Sig trade in ammo they had. Glad I bought all that ammo then, itís been a little tough to find lately, and it costs a lot more than $10 a box.

357SIG is a wonderful cartridge. I was first exposed to it in the early 90s and I have been a fan ever since.

The SIG P229 and P239 were designed for this cartridge and they perform fantastically. It is exactly the auto loading cartridge that State Police and Highway Patrols have needed.

Awesome penetration on windshields and car doors with enough remaining energy to do the job





The cartridge is an amazing tack driver in the SIG Mastershop pistols, the P229 Sport and the X-5



So many manufacturers have chambered multiple pistol models for this cartridge. Obviously SIG then there was Smith & Wesson, HK, Glock and more

The cartridge was chosen by the Federal Air Marshal service to protect all American air craft after our 9-11 incident, it was chosen by the Secret Service to protect both the US Treasury and POTUS. Many State Patrols chose the cartridge, Texas DPS and the Texas Rangers probably being the best known ​


Then there is the Bad Boy of 357SIG, the MP5 SMG. 30 rounds of 357SIG on target is roughly 2 seconds.



Sorry, I did not realize the camera had been moved until we got back to the office

Great pistol and caliber. Word out this way is the Gen 5 G31, G32, and G33 are soon to be out. The slides will be beefed up, like in the Gen 5 G22, G23 and G27. If that's real, a Gen 5 G32 Is in my future.

Great calibre, recoil shouldn't be a problem with some training. The only issue could be that it's significantly louder than your average 9mm. In a situation where you have to shoot without hearing protection (and possibly inside), it will be much worse than the usual carry calibres.

I have owned a LEO trade-in since 2006. 226 Sig in 357 Sig. Fantastic gun ammo combo with the correct brand of ammo!

Winchester "Ranger" (LE Ammo) is the best for velocity and accuracy! This ammo has a 'Smart Bullet", upon hitting a soft tissue it expands, upon hitting solid items the nose folds in and penetrates deep. One of my friends shot a decommissioned 500-barrel Oil Well Tank that were stacked for disposal. It was a through both walls of 5mm soft steel 8' apart, the through a third wall of the next tank. On soft tissue, I shot a roadside dead deer in the rump, It exited the far side (about 12/14") with a quarter sized exit wound and blew a hole in the compacted road berm another 9 or 10" Deep.

Speer "Lawman" is only 9mm Lugar performance at a much higher price! FMJ that grouped twice as large at 7 yards from same gun/ same target session!

I try to keep 400 rounds of the "Ranger" on hand, my Carbide reloading dies are on B/O since last March! I have 4000 brass to fill up!

Years ago I had a Glock 32C. A friend of mine was jonesing hard for it, and I ended up selling it to him.

Of all the guns I've sold, it's one of the guns I regret selling the most.

Iíve had a G32 for years. It is absolutely one of my favorites. My brother and I got hold of some sheets of ďbullet proof glassĒ a couple years ago. It was about 4Ē thick with about 12 plies of glass sandwiched between some sort of film. Obviously, one needs to find out how bullet proof this stuff really is. Most any centerfire rifle round went right through it but handguns were another matter. We tried 9mm, .357 mag., .44 mag., Colt 45, 10mm, and several others. We used cast and jacketed bullets. The only round that went through that stuff was the .357 SIG with a 125 gr. full jacketed bullet. It worked about 3/4 of the time. Iíd always heard it was a good penetrator and that convinced me for sure. I also bought a .357 SIG barrel for my 40 S&W G35 so it has another inch or so of barrel to work with - turned that gun from ho hum to a real screamer! Practice with your new Glock to get used to it. I bet youíll find yourself liking it a lot.

I have posted previously, the model 32 was my primary off duty sidearm. It is the one I carry most of the time since I retired. Long ago I acquired a Hartís recoil reducer and it certainly helps with the perceived recoil.

I do have the 40 caliber barrel and while I donít switch out very often, it is a feature I appreciate.

The only downside is ammunition can be more difficult to locate and it is not cheap.

You have a solid sidearm. Enjoy.

A .357 Sig was my second Glock. I have barrel/spring sets in .40 S&W and 9mm. Was relieved I didn't have any problems with the 9mm conversion barrel. Needless to say, I get a lot of use out of it. Love the gun in all three of its guises.

I have a G33, which is my primary carry in a Kramer pocket holster. It was my BUG in uniform for several years. Not fun to shoot, but useful.

Like some others here, the G32 .357 SIG is my last remaining Glock. Although the .357 SIG's bottle neck design is super, duper reliable, I am not sure that it really offers significant ballistic advantage over 9mm +P. Feeding it is just a "tad" more expensive than a 9. :-)

Personally, favor heavier bullet weight and higher sectional density with controlled expansion at handgun velocities. But, the report of the .357 SIG surely is impressive.

Enjoy it... And save your brass...!

The 357SIG is a great round, good penetration, and a solid round.

The issue with 357SIG, at least for me, was the cost. 357SIG was always $10+ more than 9mm/40S&W. Not to mention it was also harder to find.

When it came down to it financially, I didnt see a benefit to 357SIG over the 40S&W which is what I picked.

40 was just cheaper and I could buy more of it readily to train with than 357SIG.

If I have the chance, Id definitely add a 357SIG to the collection.....and hopefully find some good, reasonable ammo for it.

I own a 31, 32, and a 33.

33 is a handful, the other two are "brisk" but manageable.

I'm a big fan of .357 SIG even though I only have one gun. A few years back when S&W discontinued that caliber I bought a new M&P for $399 from CDNN. I rarely shoot it but bought a 9mm barrel and magazine to make it more affordable to shoot.

I have a model 32 that I've owned for years. The .357 Sig is an amazing cartridge! To me, it is the best overall Glock ever produced. I got a threaded barrel for it and shot it suppressed. THAT was an interesting experience!

I think the 357 Sig was one of the best ideas in the ammo world to come down the pike. I appreciate the ability to switch barrels between 40 and 357 Sig in my 229. Great performance and reliability. Iíve been thinking about a Glock in 357 and buying a set of dies.

I wish that I could have barrels made for a pair of 4006s.

Like 10mm and .41 Magnum and .40 S&W and lots of other calibers, .357 Sig will ebb and flow in popularity. It's definitely not the "cool kid" right now, but in a few years someone will "rediscover" it.

Well, I took it to the range a couple days ago and concur with everyone who says that .357 Sig is a blast to shoot. I like it. That said, it is snappy enough that the texture on a Gen4 Glock grip becomes too abrasive. Maybe it is my delicate desk job-having hands or something. I might find a thin rubber grip sleeve to soften it. I will have to pick up a few more guns in this caliber.

I'd really like to get one of those. Missed the boat when Beltway in Matthews had some. Lawmens will not sell to non-LEO. So, that leaves me out. Keeping my eyes open for one of the NCSHP guns with agency markings in decent shape.

I am a fan of the .357 Sig. The NCSHP went to that caliber because of how well it penetrates glass and steel. They set up targets in junk cars and the .357 Sig round had better penetration through windshield glass and doors. Other round either did not penetrate or the bullets went wild after penetration. The .357 Sig penetrated and stayed true to its trajectory.

As for the Glock.

Friends don't let friends buy Glocks.

My wife bought me a Sig p239 in .357 Sig for a retirement gun from the PD 1999. We were carrying p226 9mm at the time - the Dept Armorer liked the .357 round and arranged for her to get that. I added a p239 DAK in 9mm later on.

My SIL had picked up 3 boxes of .357, problem was they wouldn't fit his 686 (.357 Sig, oops). He gave them to me, a few months later I found a deal on a P239 and P229. Was able to find .40 cal barrels for both.
My only .357Sig/.40 S&W guns.

I am a former Army Reservist. Not active or retired. So, donít think that I can buy at Lawmans. But, can use Glocks blue label with DD 214, as far as I know. Never used it.

I would call if you havenít already. If you have a DD214 you should be good.
Perhaps Bill (WCCPHD) will jump back in to confirm.

They have a form that you initial asking various questions like those on a 4473.

Then they have a long list of qualifiers to purchase. I believe having served is a qualifier as long as you have some documentation. I can picture the form but not all the details since they didnít pertain to me.

I am not/was not in LE. I am retired fire, and have bought many guns @Lawmens.

I also bought, at the same time, a P239 in 357 Sig that the Governors detail carried from what I was told, though mine looks unissued. Lawmens only had a handful of those.

Yes, they will sell to military with DD 214. (Our friend Paul has bought quite a few from Lawmens on his DD214 in the past year. He keeps a copy of it on his phone).
