Hello from a stone's throw from Philly.

I've been LTCF'ing in PA since '85, back when permits were like hens' teeth. These days I shoot mostly SIGs, and I take perverse pride in getting others to make the jump to them from other manufacturers, and that hideous 1911 platform. "Dances with fuglies" :hand5: knows exactly what I mean!

Oh, and yeah, 9 is enough, but .357 SIG tends to leave them that much flatter, that much sooner. "Real" calibers don't have to begin with a 4!

Welcome to the forum. And, as Ride4TheBrand said, you are welcome to your wrong opinion here. Lots of 1911 carriers here, with me amongst them.... :yup:

Welcome---- I am a .45ACP in the 1911 kinda guy. I own em,I carry em,I love em. But I gotta say that the .357Sig to me is one of the most under rated cals on the market. Most of the tests will tell you that the 125gr.outta a 357 Mag is the best one shot stopper there is. The Sig round is about the same. A 125 at 1400 to 1450. (the 357mag obtained those velocities outta a 6" bbl also) If I wasnt in love with the 45/1911,I would take a serious look at the .357SIG as a CC weapon. Actually I would pick the .357Sig over the .40Short&Week.(I'll hear 'bout this!!) ------

I'm just funnin' a bit about the 1911. I've actually shot one that I enjoyed, which was, of course, a $2,000 Ed Brown Kobra. Hmm? Rice, beans, and divorce, or that Kobra? Seriously, I've only shot two .45s that I really enjoyed, and the other one wasn't even a true 1911 — it was a Para 14-shot LDA, and we all know what's said about Para, right? However, personal preference or not, they still all make holes, and even at less than 1,000 fps I wouldn't want to try and outrun one of those wide-body ashtrays.

RSSZ, I look at the .357 SIG thing like this: (1), numbers that equal .357 Magnum performance don't tend to lie, and (2), people who say that the .357 SIG is simply a 9mm +P would say that a housecat would have a chance in a scrap with a lynx. Goodbye, Fluffy! *COUGH*

When I'm not carrying my 220ST, or it's usually GLOCK 32 in 357 Sig...

Depends on what I'll be doing, wearing etc...

In my view, "real calibers" can begin with a .1 (.17 hmr) if that's what one prefers to shoot... Popped my left forearm with a .22lr and don't wish to repeat that anytime soon at all...

People that say a .357 Sig is a 9X19 +p, I believe are wrong. The sig even whoops the 9X23, though the two now are getting closer. ------

Welcome from North Texas, from a non-1911 guy, although there is the pressure from the "Dark Side ". LOL. Actually, I just started loving handguns, so there's probably one in my future.....
