The 10mm isn't for everyone. The boost you get over the .40 S&W is worth it to some, but frankly, most people can't handle it. That's why I would never recommend the 10mm to my agency as a prospective choice for a duty caliber. Even the mid range loads are too stout for many shooters, and most especially those LEO's who don't practice their shooting skills. That having been said, my 17 year old son can handle 200 grain Underwood XTP, so where there's a will there's a way. I must be completely forthcoming though, in that my son is a 6 foot 3 inch tight end on his high school football team. If size and strength matters, which I think it does in shooting the heavier calibers, the 10mm is way too much for many smaller statured police officers who weren't born and bred shooting firearms.
