    Nice thing about 357Sig, you can buy a cheaper 40S&W and just do a barrel swap to get your 357Sig goodness.

    That is correct, except for one caveat.

    Unless the Glock is a 3rd gen or better I would not convert. (1st AND most 2nd gen are only 2 pin and can not safely fire the Sig roun, if I recall correctly)

    A railed Sig 226 can swap from 22lr to 9 to 40 and 357.

    I will add that for a defense pistol caliber its top dawg. If I could only have one it would be a 357 Sig. and right now it would be a Sig 226 1st and 2nd would be a Sig 320, 3rd Glock 31. Id really like to get a Sig Nightmare 1911 in you guessed it 357 Sig!!!
