The Fish case was a clear example of a prosecutor with an agenda IMHO. I also think Fish's defense counsel should have deposed former LEO firearms trainers for departments that issued the 10mm, starting with FBI SAC John Hall of the Firearms Training Unit. That should have dealt with the contention that carrying the 10mm equalled being a wannabe bloodthirsty killer.

Great 10mm to own include the the Glock 20 and 29, any of the S&W's, Dan Wesson, Kimber, and Colt 1911's, and the EAA Witness steel-framed guns (as long as you change out the the weak OEM spring for a Wolff extra power spring and Loctite the rear sight).

Pros: You're right.
Cons: You won't be able to shoot enough people once, COM producing a "perfect" stop, to prove it.

I have one of the original Delta Elites from Colt and it's a great shooter. I also picked up Kimber's Eclipse Custom II.
I occasionally shoot them in USPSA and at Steel Matches. They really turn heads with the DT loads!
They are my primary 'home invasion' guns, stationed at strategic places around the house.
