Anybody got one, how do you like it for CCW. Looking for a summer alternative to the 1911. That thing is just heavy. .357 at least keeps me in a round with some punch.

I have one, it's a great shooter (VERY accurate like most 357 Sigs) and OK for CCW, though I prefer to carry my Kahr CW-9 for the light weight. Recoil is a little snappy and it is loud, but the 357 Sig is awesome. For hiking/camping/hunting I would much rather take a 357 Sig than a 9mm.

I have a SIG 239 and a 229 in 357 SIG and love them both. I know for a fact when they built the new regional jail here there was some thick "bullet prof" glass pieces left over. As a try to see what would through it a 9mm, 45acp,.40 and a 357 SIG were tried. The 9mm and 45 just pissed it off,the .40 broke the back but the 357 SIG went through it. I was not present nor do i know what thickness glass was used. If you get a 239 let me know as i think ?? i have a new Fobus right side paddle holster i will give you for it.
