    I heard nothing but good things about the 357Sig. We do "hate" them at IDPA matches because they are LOUD as heck and in a closed bay, even with hearing protection we jump like scared girls
    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    Seeing others "jump like scared girls" is the best part of shooting it...

    I didn't realize the .357 Sig had been around this long. I wonder why it's not more popular with civilians?

    Price.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    It's never been advertised well. It's performance blows the .40 out of the water, but the .40 was marketed hard. With the bottle neck, it feeds wonderfully. I've never had one bobble.

    I have to think that Husker is right. Any new cartridge will be pricey, but when as many LEOs adopt the .357 Sig, then civilians usually follow. For example, the .223/5.56 - M16/AR15.
