    I find the 357 SIG to be much flatter shooting that a 40 and easier to control. Kind of counterintuitive but it just doesn't seem to kick as much as a 40 cal. I have zero problem finding ammo in this caliber but then Houston has mucho sources compared to some smaller towns.

    Why not buy the .40 and an extra .357sig barrel so you have dual caliber pistol? The .357sig uses the .40 mags anyway.

    Seems like a win-win to me.

    The only thing about the .357 Sig is that ammo is hard to find in some places. THe 40 ammo is much easier to find.

    I've got a .357 in a Sig 226. Its an excellent shooter. Its got its own distinct sound, I can always pick it out at the range when one is being shot.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    having a gun with both barrels means that it is useable even if there is a local ammo shortage of one of the calibre's.
