    As someone who owns both a Glock 33 and Glock 29sf, I definitely favor the 29. The only advantage the 33 has over the 29, in my opinion, is it's less bulky. I love the G29 though; it's a lot of fun to shoot.

    A lot of state agencies and Federal Air Marshalls carry .357 Sig. So it would be hard to call it "exotic".

    Since the original post was almost five years ago, czman2006's good friend is probably more experienced than many of us by now; yet, this thread is still not complete without a post by glockman10mm.

    Most of the Factory ammo in these two calibers is pretty mild.
    357 sig is milder than 357 magnum for revolvers.
    AND , the standard 357sig loads are often Equalled by 9mm Plus P offerings.

    The 10mm factory ammo is only about 100fps faster than most .40S&W loads.

    Both calibers are about 15% more expensive than common 9mm or .40sw

    If you get indicted for a crime after using a gun in self defense - change lawyers.

    I love .357sig!!!

    It has a lot of energy, and has a flat trajectory so it's really accurate. I actually found a good article by Massad Ayoob. Take a look.

    A as a person who has shot Glocks in both 10mm and .357 SIG, I like the Glock 357 much better for recoil
    management.

    Same thrilling muzzle blast as a 10mm, but less recoil than a Glock .40 or 10mm.

    However, 10mm cost less to shoot than the 357, or it did two years ago when I had my 10mm
    Witness.

    I'm eager to handle the Gen 4 G33 and G29SF whenever they come out
    as I like both cartridges and the feel of the Gen 4 G17s so far.

    Bottom line would be for your friend to buy the Glock 357 in either 3 sizes,
    and to give it a whirl.

    The Glock 33 does have more recoil than the larger Glock 19 sized G32.


    And yes, having owned a 357 M&P Compact for a while..I think a SHIELD in 357 SIG would be an interesting gun as well.

    With the .357 sig having 20% less muzzle energy than the 10mm comparing the two boxes in your photo (675 ft/lbs for 10mm vs 537 ft/lbs for .357 sig).

    This is in line with my thoughts. Not sure where the OP is from or what his intended use it, but if it included outdoorsman use I'd opt for the 10mm.

    I would go with a G23 or g27 in 40 and get a 357 and 9mm barrel. The 10 is great if you hand load or buy the expensive and hard to find exotic stuff but off the shelf ammo offers no real advantage over the 40. 357 is better than +P+ 9mm but not by much. Get a aftermarket 9mm barrel and shoot the 9 from mild to wild. I have a G29, 30 and 27 and the 27 is so much easier to shoot and carry and I carry it as a back up when long gun hunting. The 30 with 45+P is better than the standard 10mm stuff but when you load 10mm to its potential it is awesome.

    I vote for the 10mm. I haven't shot it in the glock platform yet but do carry a delta elite.

    Let’s see 5 year old thread revived earlier this year...
    None the less and for the record I have owned both, got rid of the 357 sig due to the bottle neck cartridge and I reload.
    The 10mm will be around a long time and at .11 to reload almost as cheap as reloading 9mm, the only piece that costs more is the actual boolit ;)

    Stay safe.
    PS I have a box of UMC 357 Sig that needs a good home (BristolTN area), found them cleaning out one of the safes a few months back.

    I really enjoy shooting my 29SF, and will highly recommend it. Remember that the 10mm has 10 bullet weights to choose from, more than any other caliber. The range of power is huge. You can choose some close to the .40 (but a lot easier to shoot), to all the way up to > 700 ft/lbs of energy. For instenace, the Winchester Super-X Silvertip 175 grain delivers: 1037 fps at a 100 yeards!
