I already have mine configured and in my wishlist on Glockmeister. Just gotta save some pennies.Listen to the man. Zonk knows Glocks fairly well.
He is right when he says the 33 will hide easier than the 32. It is smaller, after all.
If you dedicate yourself to the platform, you will be just fine. Just buy the damn thing and be done.
I made the switch to a G33 barrel in my G27 last year. I like it, a bit more accurate, and recoil is a bit different as well. Heck......I grew up on the 40S&W and G27 since the early days of CC here in my state. I honestly can't tell much difference at the range or recoil between the two. I was just figuring on the higher velocity of the 357SIG being a better alternative with same magazine capacity. I just had to try it and my daily carry G27 is now a G33 for the time being. I shoot a lot of rounds in a month's time out of all my pistols and quite frankly....those who don't shouldn't post any negative ideas about such and such until they do the same. The terminal performance of the 357SIG vs 40S&W out of a sub compact Glock? I'm less interested in trials, polls, and opinions than I am in hitting my target for sure. The edge for the 357SIG over the 40S&W? May be the bottle neck case and feeding reliability over anything else IMO.Going back to the .357 SIG... again...
...I've also now been told to avoid a pistol with such a small/light frame chambered in .357 SIG because of the nature of the round.
Thoughts? Personal experience with the Glock 33 (Or 27 with a .357 SIG barrel?)?
Well, I guess I really do love the .357 sig . . . I just picked up a great condition G33 as a second one. I parted with a G26 simply because the G33 is more versatile . . . I can shoot 9 mm, .40 and .357 sig with my extra Glock barrels and conversion barrels. I couldn't do that with my G26, so bye-bye.I actually shoot better with my G33 (.357 sig) than I do with my G27 (.40) or G26 (9mm). Having said that, I tend to shoot even better with my G36 and G30 (.45 ACP), and, I'm a tiny bit better with the G36 than the G30. I can't tell you why exactly, except that I'm more comfortable shooting .357 sig and .45 ACP. Obviously the size of the gun doesn't matter except maybe with the G36, G30. I love shooting .357 sig but price and availability have pretty much put an end to my doing so. I've not see a box of .357 sig locally for any price in the past 4-5 months.
