I currently have a G19 and G17. I would like to get another Glock in a larger caliber, but don't want a larger frame so that leaves out the 10mm and .45 ACP. Between the .357 Sig, .40 S&W and .45 GAP, which do you think is the better round for personal defense?

I have a G33 and really like it.

.357 Sig ammo may cost a little more, but the little demon is accurate, reliable and packs a punch.

IMO

I find it funny that you managed to pick 2 options that are expensive and hard to find.

If you don't want a .45 but want something bigger than 9, there's only one real choice, .40, if you want to use a common caliber.

I'd say suck it up and get a .45 The grip's not that much bigger. And if you move to the new XD45acp, it's really not big at all.

I can find a Glock in all three calibers that I mentioned relatively easy and the cost on all is close enough to not be an issue.

I said I didn't want a .45 ACP, but was asking about the .45 GAP, .357 Sig and .40S&W.

I have owned a G21 in .45ACP and it was too big for my hands and I want another Glock, not some other brand.

Well okay then.

In that case I still vote for .40.

I was kind of leaning that way already. Just wondering if I should consider the .357 Sig or .45 GAP.

ick, no GAP.
Get a 45ACP XD. I have the G21 and love both guns. XD is definitely a easier handling gun.

G23 all the way

Just bough a 357 sig and am now looking into getting a 40 barrel
i think both rounds are a toss up on effectiveness, 40 is just much easier to find and cheaper. I like my 357 sig, but still dont see how it is any better or worse than 40 other than ammo cost.

45Gap will also be hard to find and expensive, but much like 45 ACP, offers only a slight stopping power advantage. Yes 45 is better for defense...im not saying otherwise, but I would also rather have 10 rounds of hot 40 Ranger T's than 6 or 7 rounds of 45 gap.

Go 40
