All are good but I prefer the 357sig.I like the P229.
I have .40 S&W, 9mm and .357 Sig barrels for it.
I will carry it for personal defense against humans (vs black bears which I also encounter).
.40 S&W vs. 9mm vs. .357 Sig which is more reliable and more appropriate for EDC personal defense?
That's a good point that myself and many others outside of capacity limited States don't consider. If I were limited to 10 rounds (and carrying guns I already own) I'd carry either my P320 Sub Compact .40 , P220 10mm or maybe a revolver occasionally.I am limited to 10 rounds in California with 9mm. So, 9mm is out of the question unless it is a more capable and reliable defensive round.
Not these days.Hard to beat the ballistics of .357 Sig. Easy to beat the cost of .357 Sig. For me when figuring cost and practice time, I prefer .40. Nothing wrong with any of the 3 calibers. Shoot the one you like/have ammo for/can afford. I shoot all 3 but mostly .40.
