    As much as I've come to admire .357 Glocks and the .357 SIG cartridge.

    I've been shooting 10mms for a lot more years.

    IF you like the compacts, then go for the G29 or G29SF.

    I'd carry either of these loads in one and feel very well armed for asphalt or woods- up to small black bear.



    I've also carried 180 and 200 gr.Hornady XTP and DT 165/180 gr. Gold Dots in 10mm.

    I look forward to seeing what you decide on.

    If your getting it for the woods I'd think the G20 would be the one to get and you can then get a 6" barrel if you want to kick-up the power a bit.

    If you plan on it being a CCW more then for the woods then the little bit smaller G29 would carry easier I suppose.

    Isn't the ~thumb of rule average~ about 50fps/50ftlbs +/- per inch of length difference? So the G20 would be a better carry for wood so you have that little bit more of an oomph power just in case.

    Have never put the G20 side-by-side with a 1911 but the specs seem to be close to one except the G20 being a DS mag it would be a little thickerah. But, as with all guns, with the proper dress and holster you should still be able to CCW it.

    Great read. I too am considering picking up a 10mm Glock and this made up my mind. I'm trying to buy as many guns as I can before I get married and have to "okay' purchases..

    I just recently discovered Underwood ammo & was going to order some for my 10s.
    I usually use Double-Tap.

    Evidently they don't want you shooting their ammo out of a factory Glock barrel.
    Something about not being "supported"....don't really know what they mean?

    Supposedly early glock 20 barrels didn't have much support around entire brass. So when the round was fired, the brass could explode or blow outward. I din't think its much of an issue on the newer barrels as mine seems to look fine. You can search for it, its widely talked about.

    At the end of the day it doesn't really matter. It's a Glock! You can't have too many Glocks. Actually, my next one was going to be a .40 cal., but now you've got me thinking 10MM. Maybe there's two more Glocks in my future.

    A Glock 10mm is a nice addition.

    Regardless, Underwood makes the statement against using their ammo in a factory barrel.

    The following is a direct cut and paste from Underwood's site:

    Safe for use in all 10mm firearms with a ramped feed barrel.

    I hear a lot of people say it makes a big difference, but the actual statistics that I see just don't show much of a difference. Stats from double tap, and from actual individuals not looking to sell ammo, show a decrease in the 50-80fps range which to me just doesn't seem like a massive difference when dealing with velocities in the 1300fps range. YMMV.

    Where does Underwood make this statement? I'd like to know as I currently have their FMJ loaded in my Glock 29SF. I wish they did a hardcast bullet like Doubletap does, because I'm just not willing to pay Doubletap the price they want for their 180/200 grain hardcast ammo...

    Better yet...don't get married. I discovered recently that my wife had pictures of all my Glocks. She laid them out in court demanding her half.

    I just went back & looked & it seems as though they changed their initial wording.
    It now says "safe for all guns with ramped feed barrels (such as Glock)".
    It did not say this 2 weeks ago when I first looked.
    I stand corrected & am glad, lol......

    I will be ordering some now.
