I have 2 XDs (service 9m and Sub-40) and I NEED another. :twisted:

I am after a tatical now but wanted a little advice about the different
calibers. What is your pick and why? Thanks for the info. in advance.

For price? 9mm.
For oomph? .357sig.
For middle ground? .40s&w

I just picked up my sub .40 last night to go with my service .40. I thought that this would hold me over for a while, but as I was finishing the paper work on the sub I started playing with a tactical and now I already want it. I think I'll pick it up in .40 yet again.

I went with the .40 for the middle ground factor. Good punch, cheap ammo.

Same here, I use my 40 Tact in USPSA matches. Shot damn nice out of the boxed. Couldn't be happier with my choice, I started off going towards the 9 but I also figured a bigger whole just might get me that "A" that should have been a "C"... :lol:

Georgia Arms Canned Heat ammo in .357 sig is only .24 cents per round more, than WWB 40 cal. That is 24/100th of a cent, or in other words, 24 cents more per 100 rounds than 100 rounds of WWB.

Ammo prices isnt a concern if you order in bulk.

So Since WWB 100 rd value pack is $15 (or .15 per round) then sig ammo is .24 more per round which makes it .39 per round or $39 per boxof 100 WHAT A STEAL !!!

I just picked up my .40 today and must say I LOVE it! As for why I picked it over the 9, I'm planning on getting a 9mm conversion barrel, and I allready have a .357 mag (Ruger Security Six 6"), and could get the .357 conversion barrel if I want.........

I love my 9mm for cheap blasting, but I were picking one gun i'd get the .40, mainly because with a barrel swap you can shoot both 9mm or .357 Sig. Versatility rocks.

Whooooa there! .357 Magnum and .357 Sig are two different animals and they don't mix. :shock:

.357 SIG

I would have to say of the three calibers the .357 sig will offer you the most performance hands down. I will be the first to admit that I have always been very prejudiced against the ".40 s&w". There was never anything original or spectacular about this caliber, just a shortened and much more limited 10mm.The .357 sig on the other hand is NOT a necked down .40 as many assume. The sig round uses shortened 10mm brass to help deal with the extra chamber pressures and the sig round develops phenomenol punch from a compact package,as it was intended to do!
