Compared to what? Not picking, just curious what other platforms you've used?

and i would like a tactical light and some other goodies
.357 Sig is a great although pricecy round. I shoot it out of a P229SAS (I have both the .40 and .357 barrels).

You might look here for how the .357Sig compares to others rounds:

Welcome to the forum. There's a few guys around here that have 357 sigs. Its a great round if you can afford to shoot it. I shot a buddies glock 32 in 357 sig and it shot great.

As far as the trigger, I would put another few hundred rounds through your pistol before you try a trigger mod on it. My xd40 lightened up quite a bit after I got around 350-400 rounds through it. I would guess my trigger isn't far from 3 pounds now, without any mods. That said there's plenty of guys here that have had trigger work done on their xds, and I'm sure they'll be able to point you in the right direction.

Welcome to the board. Not to many .357's it seems and you are the first to post about one that I recall in my short time on here. Personally I looked at a Ruger SP101??? revolver .357 but decided a pistol would be more fun and went with the 40. I'd be interested to hear how it works after a few more rounds make their way through it.

My father has a .357 sig. It's a great shooting weapon. Yes give the triger time to break in. It's like buying a performance car. Needs broke it to feel the real thrill. Make sure you apply light even triger pull. Jerking will typicaly cause you too shoot high.

I'm just going to say this. Let me rephrase what I posted. Most people who jerk, do so because they are they are anticipating the recoil. So they jerk the trigger and jerk the gun upward. That's typical from my experience watching people during qualifing, and on public ranges. That will cause you too shoot high, or high and left. Now if you just jerk the trigger, it will typicaly cause you too shoot low and left I agree. That's where practice, and feeling comfortable with the noise and recoil comes into play.

I agree about the ammo price problem. (Great round but pricey!) That's why I'm looking at a barrel conversion for my XDM 40. This way I have the best of both worlds.

I enjoy going to the range with mine (I reload and have moved to the 147 Grn. and have found the recoil reduced) B.J.
