Since we would have all the major players in one place I decided to actually do some investigative reporting while we were at the NRA Annual Meeting. I decided to find out what the story was with the .357 Sig handgun cartridge. I’ll spare you all the details about it, but since this cartridge was developed in 1994 I’ve been hearing it’s quite good. A serious up and comer, adopted by many law enforcement units with more looking into its benefits. Usually, when this happens to a particular caliber there is more acceptance into the mainstream, yet the .357 SIG seems to be dropping in popularity. So much so I caught wind of some reports that several major manufacturers were dropping their firearms chambered for it. Are we seeing a new 10mm, destined to the same obscure fate, or is it’s adoption slow and steady with a hardcore group of supporters? What do you think?
I’ll be posting what the manufacturers had to say in parts as some of them were quite long winded, but feel free to give your opinion at any time.
