It does not feel any bigger to me than a G17/22. The gun is stupid accurate out of the box, and the recoil is no worse than anything else I shoot (that may change when the Underwood, Hornady, and Georgia Arms ammo arrives today, and when I get the shell plate in to load more interesting rounds). Going to chrono everything Saturday.
It's my new favorite Glock. Oh yeah, and I got the Armorer's price from Ed's Public Safety, shipped overnight. Ed's totally rocks.
I knew you'd really like it! Really did not think it would be your favorite Glock after 300 rounds though! That is awesome! The Glock 20sf is one fine machine, and accurate to boot. The ammo you shot was .40sw power, so its not a surprise that you didnt notice the recoil. Once you load up some hot rounds, or run some underwood, or buffalo bore through it, you will notice quite a bit more recoil. It still isnt all that bad, definitely nothing to worry about, just letting you know you got quite a bit of fun to have, and that your G20sf can handle loads that are A LOT heavier! It still tames them quite a bit though, so it doesnt hurt and is still a lot of fun to shoot! I really dont think a snubnose 10mm revolver would be much fun to shoot....
Im having trouble shooting left with mine, well the last time I went out I did anyway. I hadnt shot it in over a month, and I didnt warm up at all, just aimed at a target and unloaded a mag on it. All the bullets were on the left side of the target, grouped approximately 3-4" to the left of bullseye. I think I was flinching pretty bad also, havent had many problems with flinching in the past, and I can dryfire over and over again and not flinch once, but it is a whole different ballgame when there is a round in the chamber! Needless to say Im not real confident in my shooting abilities right now, I just hope I dont have a need to use it until my game improves. Well, I worded that wrong. I dont want to have a need to use it AT ALL, ever. I just mean, if I do, I hope it isnt in the next two weeks...
Sorry for rambling, got a little off track there. Anyway, congrats on the gun, and Im really happy you like it. But, now that you are officially a member of the 10mm community, you are now obligated to spread the word to others! Anytime there is a thread started where someone is asking for opinions on what their next gun should be, you are obliged to refer them to the G20, or G29, and steer them to the 10 ring for more advice, opinions, and knowledge on our beloved centimeter cartridge.
Now go! Run like the wind, and spread the word about the 10mm! Be fruitful and multiply!
