I wanted to pick up a Sig p226 navy in .357. I hear a lot about 1911s and Glocks but not so much the Sig. Your thoughts on the 226 and .357? Please, thank you.


The Sig P226 and the .357 SIG have a great reputation.  The P266 is a proven Navy SEAL sidearm.  I don’t fire the .357 SIG often, but it is a high-energy round, almost as powerful as the 357 magnum while being more controllable.  Its downside is that it’s fairly new and relatively rare, so in a social collapse situation, finding more ammo may prove difficult.

p.s. Another downside: the 357 SIG is also much more expensive than the 9mm, so you won’t have as much ammo for practice.
