    Yowza. That was a whole lot of bang and flash. Nice round, nice gun. Had a chance to shoot one tonight. And this coming from someone who looks for the most flash and bang from his .357 magnum he can get.

    Try shooting one on a dark range. Big big flash.:what:

    Even better, try shooting one in a real-world defence scenario--say the interior of your car, without hearing protection, after dark.

    Even better than that! Try getting shot BY one, in a car, without hearing protection, after dark;)

    Yeah..the potential for hearing damage has caused me to rethink my current carry pistol, a Glock 32. I'm not as worried about flash - the Gold Dots don't seem to create much of one.

    Any links to /hard/ data on hearing damage caused by repeated discharging of firearms in close quarters, and how the 357SIG rates? I don't think I'd ever end up firing more than 5-6 rounds.

    That's a sweet combination isn't it!
    It's become my primary CCW weapon.
    Pick up a .40S&W barrel for a bit cheaper practice costs
