    I'd likely buy one if it was available.
    Yeah, I know, buy a Coonan. It's considered :D

    You know it would be the most perfect .357 ever! :D

    ...except for the trigger polishing business

    As for the Glock, if they made one, I'd buy it ;)

    I've thought about the DE. The thing about all of them is concealment. Size has a lot to do with my liking. Round count also comes into play. More MORE :D

    I like the idea of a Glock in 10mm, but more sized to a 19. And double stacked.
    How bout a Glock 44Mag. Evil grin

    Yeah, I've done a bit of snooping. I'm (we are) not the only one thinking.
    The subjects been spoke of quite a bit over at GlockTalk.

    Because 9mm is why. Underwood 115's @1600 say howdy pretty good.
    lol
    o edit.. and they don't even get "Glocked/guppied", of course.

    Underwood 115's

    The penetration/expansion video is pretty impressive

    Yeah, but, .357 is like a totally nostalgic, feel-good round :p

    Wife's SP101 here, but I'm eyeing a GP100 to add some bulk a little later down the road, then round it out with a .357 lever gun :cool:

    Hey I hears ya. But when you get down to "it".. 9mm is the same power in that same grainage. lol. going on a thousand years now.
    The funny thing is, with that said, many/most .357 users will stoke it with classic jacketed 158gr deer loads.. don't do that.

    I carry 9mm all day long, fully convinced of the effectiveness of the round. Never have carried a .357 But for some reason, I've just always had a special place for that round :)

    Rule #1 of any gun forum - mention a caliber, any caliber, and there will be a debate ;)

    Debating turns out a long and usually obnoxious circle. I've done my research long before joining here. However, I do like the ballistics of the Underwood Ammo. I've added it to my holy grail list

    Wouldn't .357 mag be a bit snappy with those polymer frames? I like shooting .38 personally. But i'm not a fan of revolvers..Not yet.. I kind of want a Bond Arms derringer.
