    I would say the 10mm is a great round for the woods. My only concern would be ammo cost and availability.

    Other rounds to look at for a woods gun would be the .357mag, .41 mag, 44mag and 45LC. <- all of these are revolver cartridges though. I think a good 7 or 8 shot .357 would be tough to beat as a woods or HD gun.

    I have a Delta Elite now and had a few others before this one. Love the 10mm if you reload you can have it mild to nuclear depending on purpose. It's a great round but like a lot of good things people will complain enough about it that it won't be as good as it started out! For hiking,SD yes I would and do carry it with spare mags. Never been a big fan of the Glocks but having 16 rounds plus extra mags does make one think.
    It's your decision in the end and we can only give opinions and insite to what have done and what works for us.

    If you think so....go ahead and do it. I had a 10 for some years that keeps being bought and sold in my family. It's not a gimmicky caliber, it's a fairly serious caliber. Trigger time is the thing that I would highly recommend. Control of this caliber is absolutely possible, but not automatic. Like going from 22 plinking to 45 or 357, you want to settle in to it. End of soap box.

    10mm thoughts?

    It is 1 more mm than I need, the ammo is more expensive, and someone I dislike has one (not on this forum). If I ever need a larger handgun round I would go for something more popular and common.

    But that said I also like to do things that are not the most popular and common, I like to explore new worlds, seek out new life and new civilizations... oh wait that's a different space show.

    I don't understand whats not to like or understand about this caliber. Most of are criticizing the cost of ammo, but if you use it for a back woods gun it's not like your going to go through ammo like you would at the range? I'd probably use maybe less than 200-300 rounds a year with this caliber so with that being said its not really costly. Also, yes .40 and .45 are more practical for edc or defense but those calibers can't even compare to the ballistics of the 10mm. That and the fact that if you have a G20 you have 15rounds of it!!

    You can easily buy a 40 conversion barrel for a Glock 10mm for range use. That makes it very affordable IMO.

    I shoot 40 out of my G29SF and G20SF all day long at the range.

    My Glock 20 and 29 are both excellent platforms for the 10mm round and I own and shoot them both. They handle the recoil well and are extremely accurate. The ammo is expensive and reloading is one way to cut the expense somewhat and further taylor your loads. The 10mm round in these high capacity Glock handguns makes for a very powerful and effective combination both in the city and deep woods. For these reasons, I am a big fan of the 10mm.

    All the 10mm haters.

    If you buy 10mm ammo locally you are wasting money and making a big deal about ammo costs for no good reason. Anyone ever spend $30 for 50 rounds of SD ammo for their 45s or 9mms? How much is a box of HSTs going for these days?

    EDIT: just visited this site for Gold Dot comparison.

    http://www.ammoman.com/p/144/45-auto...gold-dot-53966

    Just one example but an example nonetheless. 45acp SD rounds sure are getting expensive. :)

    Range ammo in 10mm can be purchased online for $20/50, and full power loads at that (Scottsdale Ammo). As mentioned, Underwood has full power Gold Dot loads at $30/50.

    OP, I carry a 10mm daily and love it. I don't reload and I'm not rich, but I've found ways to get the money together for the ammo I've needed to become pretty dang good at shooting and controlling this little hand cannon. No different than any other caliber.

    People are getting fatter everyday. 10mm isn't just for bears anymore.

    Mayor Bloomberg agrees. Bears are no longer allowed to have sugary drinks in NYC.
