    10MM

    I really don't understand why the 10 hasn't gained much more popularity??? I have shot the EAA, the Delta colt, and the Glock 20 and with those guns I get the added recoil that full power 10mm's gives the shooter. But in the Glock 29 I honestly don't feel any difference in recoil between that and the 45ACP. In fact I tested it on a buddy of mine yesterday and he couldn't tell the difference either. I took him to the range and gave him my Glock 30 45/10mm. and he fired 2 magazines worth of 45ACP out of the gun (3) different kinda so 6 mags in all and then he fired the same in 10MM out of the gun. this is the result in a blind test cuz he didn't know which he was firing as he was blind folded.

    The least recoil:
    FMJ 230 45ACP close second 180 FMJ 10mm

    Most recoil:
    Corbon +p 165 JHP close second 230 Equalizer DT 10mm

    the middle two he said felt the same:
    185 grain HydraShok 45ACP and 180 grain DoubleTapp JHP

    After We shot alot more and I honestly think the 29 produces less recoil than the 20 making it a very easy to manage gun. To be fair my gun does have a 19lbs recoil spring in it and I am not sure what the difference in feel to a stock one is.

    I have no issue with buffalo bore heavy 10mm out of my g29. IMHO I know handgun rounds are similar but 10+1 or 15+1 180 grain 10mm rounds in a compact package with 15 round backup mags makes more sense to me than any other caliber platform out there when I choose to carry hicap over the revolver.

    I think I would be a big fan! seems like a great round, I just have so many now that the idea of a new ammo (cost keeps me at bay).......... If I was starting from scratch I think the 10 would make my short list. But with time money EQT and ammo expenses as they are I am a 40 cal fan for the near future anyway...

    But the 10 might take off with the next upcomming generation I think.. (kinda like the 40 did out of the 80s)

    I woke up at 2am this morning, pondering this. I'm about to order the same parts that you did for my G30. My purpose would not be for a two-legged predator, but to carry as a woods gun (have some feral hogs on one of my properties). I always take recoil concerns with a grain of salt, as it normally doesn't affect me much. That said, I personally view .45 ACP as a better general SD round, simply because it makes a bigger hole. It's simple-minded stuff like that which can sometimes be forgotten in the haze of ballistic data.

    Speaking of ballistic data, I'm also curious as to what the shorter barrel for the G30 has on the 10mm performance? Most of the published data refers to a 5" barrel. Maybe Glockman10mm might catch this thread and steer us in the right direction.

    I guess my question is: Is there that much difference in the 10mm and the 40 S&W. I saw that Ruger has a 10mm revolver that looks really nice and concealable!!

    I will dig out my chrono and see if I can get you some more numbers if there is anything you want tested.

    I've always been a 10mm fan. Don't currently own one though... so many guns, so little money.

    When you look at the glock 29 as a managable recoiling 10MM it makes it hard to not get the 10MM IMHO.
