    I'm considering upgrading to the Glock 32. I like the feel of the compact frame & am hearing lots of good things about the .357Sig cartridge but wonder if the Glock will stand-up under the battering of that hot load.
    All feedback apprecieated.

    The G32/23/19 size frame is one of their best sizes for all around use/carry.

    The .357 SIG ctg., while not overly popular when compared to the .40 S&W or 9mmx19, is a very good ctg. with power to spare.

    A G32 setup with a G23 bbl. gives one a nice choice of ctgs. in the same pistol.

    I had a G32 and G33. The Sig round is very accurate, a "flat shooter" as they say. And unlike Glock's 40S&W and .45ACP, the .357Sig chamber is fully supported.

    I've got a couple buddies that have shot the snot out of their G22s and G23s, using anything from cheap 155gr FMJ to hot JHPs from Corbon, Triton and the ilk. I've yet to hear any issues concerning the frame, so I'd imagine your future G32 will be just as durable.

    My G-32 has eaten about 500 rounds so far, and shows no particular wear that I can discover beyond scuffs on the contact points. I put a 3.5# disconnector in it, and it has proved to be a very reliable, fun shooter. Definitely a powerhouse, but with a nice balance and power-to-weight ratio. I agree that's it's a nice and size-efficient. All-in-all a very good gun, one of the few I've bought new.

    I've got a .40 barrel for it, but I haven't tried it yet. Darn thing's too much fun just the way it is!

    I never thought I'd buy a Glock, as they were very un-appealing, appearance-wise. I have since changed my tune, and My G-32 can safely be said to be one of my favorite shooters now. I just wish I could figure out a way to put wooden grips on the silly thing...;)
