Having a tough time deciding between these two pistols. I'm all out-fitted for reloading so that would help mitigate some of the costs of 357 sig. I think the 36 is a bit thinner but the 33 is smaller in length & height. I'd like to get my hands on a 30s but i think the grip may be a bit wide for iwb carry, which i use about 25% of the time. For the most part i carry when i'm out on hikes, backpacking, fishing etc. Maybe once a week or so i carry in town but it's usually to test a new carry method or if i'm commuting on my bike late at night, or going to the theater (i admit i have an irrational fear of the theater and need my security blanket ). I do carry in Alaska a couple times a year, but i usually borrow my little brother in law's G20 but on occasion i'm stuck with my piddly 45. Honestly i have no idea which cartridge would be best against bigger dangerous game. Neither seem great, but either are better than throwing rocks i guess.
