    So let's say I want a 10mm glock

    Which should I get? I like to 'sometimes' carry my pistols, but usually stick to my MP9c..

    I was thinking maybe of the G20SF or the G29SF...

    thoughts?

    I guess it comes down to carrying the pistol or not...

    I really like compact pistols though. :D

    fwiw, I do have large hands. my huge mk23 was made to perfectly fit in my hands.

    G29SF. With grip extenders, you can convert to a full size. I have the G30SF (same size as G29SF), and see no reason to have the G21.

    Whichever one you shoot better/feels better in your hand. If you plan on carrying it you may want to go with the compact.

    Be careful, they multiply (which is a good thing).

    I have a G-20 that I sometimes open carry when out checking my property. Big gun but fits my hand okay. For me, bigger is better but to each his own.

    I actually don't find the 20sf to be big. Wide yes, but overall its very comfortable to hold and shoot.

    I'd get the 20. That extra inch in the barrel makes a good difference in the velocity of the round... which is why we shoot 10mm, right?

    I got the 29SF and will have it on the hip this weekend out in the woods! From all the testing I've seen the difference in velocity between the 20 and 29 is not significant. Maybe 40-80fps. The 29 has available grip extenders, and Pearce +0 "pinky" extenders which I personally believe are necessary for those with the normal complement of fingers.

    Underwood ammo offers full power 10mm ammo at about 25 bucks a box. Doubletap is super pricey stuff, and the "normal" factory 10mm ammo is pretty much as powerful (weak?) as 40SW so what's the point? IMO, 10mm is not a range gun because it's a bit of a beast to shoot (although not terrible by any means) and I shoot 9mm at the range anyway because it's way cheaper than 40, 45, etc.... Reloading may of course change the equation but I have enough hobbies and I don't need another. :)

    If you had to have just ONE gun, I really think the G29SF would be the way to go. You can get replacement barrels so you can shoot 40SW (and 357SIG, and 9x25 Dillon), it's compact but offers grip/capacity extenders, and the barrel is a decent length (3.8inch). The range of ammo you can shoot through the thing is just wild. You can go beyond 357 Magnum, or down to 40SW. The flexibility is amazing. It's also a decent price and amazingly reliable. The one issue I have is the ergonomics. It feels like I have a 2x4 in my hand. But whatever, it's a gun not an iPad. :)


    But, why get just one gun? :)

    If you're reloading rifle ammo, and jump into a 10mm, you're doing yourself a disservice by not reloading the 10mm. I say get either one. You'll eventually end up with both Glock 10mm variants anyways.

    I have a 20SF as a back up for hunting. It's not as much of a beast to shoot as people claim. When I first fired it, I was pleasantly surprised that the recoil was not bad at all. The full size frame soaks it up nice. I have carried it concealed. I used a CBST or a Raven Concealment and it was not bad at all. Very comfortable. But my smaller Glocks (26,19) are easier for CC.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!
