    10mm or 9mm

    This will be a range pistol only, I had a change to mess around with a G20 the other day at the range but will i be making a mistake with a 10mm for a range/target gun??? Would i be better off with a 9mm possibly a G34??

    9mm is cheaper to shoot than 10mm.....so in that respect, go with the 9mm. The 10mm is a great protection/hunting cartridge..

    A 10MM seems like a waste on a sheet of paper.

    If you do alot of shooting, the 9mm will be much easier on you.

    Unless your real name is Bill Gates or Donald Trump, go with the 9!

    The 9 mm has less recoil and a whole lot cheaper to shoot. And cheap 9 mm ammo is real easy to find.

    For range / target, go with the 9mm. Ammo is much cheaper.

    For example, American Eagle range ammo (from Natchez, just for illustration):

    9mm, 50 rounds: $8.99

    10mm, 50 rounds: $22.49

    You can shoot almost 3 times as much for the same money with 9mm as opposed to 10mm.

    If you like the 10mm size hole. Shoot a 10mm Retarded=40 S&W slightly cheaper. If your trying to build up your trigger control. I go with a 9mm, even that get a 22 conversion for any of the compact or full size Glock 9/40/357 sigs.

    10mm Great Cartridge little costly, but the gun its self is a little big for smaller hands.

    Contrarian argument

    Okay, I understand that 9mm ammo is cheaper than 10mm ammo. I buy both.

    But you go shooting to have fun, and shooting a 10mm is a lot more fun than shooting a 9mm. I'd rather shoot 50 rounds through a 10mm than 100 rounds through a 9mm. So I'll go against the grain and say get a 10mm.

    If you already have a 9mm in the stable get the 10mm. If not then get the 9mm.

    Wait for your $600 to $1200 tax rebate check to come in and spend it on 10mm ammo.

    Okay you'll be punching holes in paper and/or pinging steel, but what is your intent of focus toward as much and what would be the purposeful use of this future gun?

    Get a S&W 610 and shoot mostly .40S&W in it.
