Man, its been a while since I have been around here.

Well, I used to have an xd and it was absolutely top notch. Since then I have had a few auto loaders. Few have matched the xd's quality. None have surpassed it. Well, I am in the market for another tactical autoloader and my journey has led me back to the xd.

I am looking for a fun weapon that I can fulfill all my needs. It will be used for home defense, target shooting, as well as a camping companion.

I am liking everything I here about the 357sig. The only thing I dont like is the higher cost of ammo. From what I read, its an excellent problem solver and sports some excellent ballistics/ barrier.

I think it is the caliber for me, but am still undecided. I dont want another glock(for personal reasons), and I cant afford a sig. The clear choice, seems to be the xd in 357sig.

Does anyone have any experience with this rig? No doubt someone here has one. If so, how is it? I would like to get some input regarding the caliber and how it works in the xd chassis. Also, is there any .40 conversion barrels available for it?

thanks fellas!

That comment always draws a comment,
"I never heard of a 9mm magnum before".

you don't hear too much about the .357sig on this forum. I mostly hear (read?) about the .40S&W and the 9mm. I hear the 9mm being so awesome (I agree!), and I read a lot about failures from the .40, though the owners still love them. I'm actually interested in the .357 myself

I have a .357 sig in a 4" service. I am very pleased with the performance of that caliber. With the higher cost of the .357 sig ammo, I bought an EFK 9mm conversion barrel and a couple of mags for about $200. I shoot the majority with 9mm. When I come off the range, I replace it with the .357 sig for carry. Since I am shooting a lot more with the 9mm, I noticed I am shooting better with the .357. I think that the ammo will come down as more agencies are choosing this round.
