my 2 cents

I was a gun dealer for several years as a pawnbroker. The choice I made for myself was Glock 20 with extended mags.

My holster holds an extra mag, so with 2 ultra high cap mags, one in the pipe, and one extra in the grip hole, I am moving about with 38 rounds of magnum firepower.

I don't keep a sidearm to impress the guys at the sporting clubs, I keep a sidearm to protect myself and my family.

I like your style.

I've leaned toward the 1911 side of the equation. While I own a couple of stock Delta Elites, my carry is a Kimber Eclipse 10MM, which is better setup for carry than the stock DE.

Having said that the G20 has always been a draw due to its capacity. The problem has been that the grip was too big to point naturally for me. So I've decided to give the G20 a new chance at being a carry gun by sending it to Cold Bore Customs to have the grip reduced. I'm hoping for the best, but the evaluation of the pistol when it gets back will be the deciding factor.

Good luck with your G20, SC

I own two delta's . Love them a lot. I own zero glock 20's , but would like one for a carry gun in rural areas and when out boating. The glock is lower maintainance and likely is not anyones show piece. The 1911 is my favorite platform, so I would stay with that choice for me off the top. I dont think either gun would serve you poorly or be a bad choice. Sounds like you got the glock due to money. That is not a bad choice.

I have two Deltas: 1-blued & 1-SS. I also have the G20SF (Still Fat).

The Glock wouldn't be a bad deal if the damn fat grip wouldn't twist out of my hands, especially at faster firing paces. If Glock were to make these 10mm and .45ACPs with single stack mags, they might just have a little something.

Anyway, the SW 610 would still be the best 10mm handgun following by the Ruger Convertible that was made for only one year.

I wouldn't mind getting a Smith M610 at some point.

I'm just much more into the old blued Smiths.

I shot one of those that time when you and I and Proguncali met in San Jose at the indoor range. It was a nice wheelie, but I kept thinking why 6 rounds of 10mm when you could carry 15+1 in a lighter package. Or 8+1 in a 1911 which is every bit as accurate as the revolver.

I hear you. My G20 is in transit to Cold Bore Customs. His extreme reduction looks to me like the best solution to the oversized G20 frame that I have yet to see.

I want this pistol to work better for me. Just the stats on paper make the G20 pretty attractive. If it turns out sweeter than honey on a nipple maybe it'll entice you get up this way shooting again some time.

Most beautiful pistol ever made--Delta Elite
Best pistol ever made--Glock 20/20sf
Both are satisfying guns. If one's hands are too small for even the 20sf the Elite is the way to go.

My 1911 rolled in much mud and still held up in the Army. One only has to hold the Delta Elite to feel the natural point and quality. While the Glock is sturdy, it is a moose and feels cheap to me.

Interesting first post...

I can't agree with either of those statements.

The Delta is a nice looking pistol and the G20 is certainly one of the best Glocks, but I think you're getting a bit carried away.

And it is your position that the two are mutually exclusive?

I have a Delta Elite that I've used for everything from police duty to competition, and they are nice guns, but if I wanted a 10mm shooter I'd go with Glock every time.

I had a Smith 610 and it is a great 10mm. No worries about case support LOL. But it shoots a lot like a 357 and a lot like a mild 41 mag and well it got a little boring to me. So when a chance popped up to sell it to fund a outstanding deal on a Colt Special Combat, off it went.

I have both the G20 and the Delta. I am not as fond of the Glock grip but its width does help spread the recoil. But I enjoy shooting the Delta too.

Have fun with your G20!

Thanks guys. I am really getting used to the 20SF.

I would have to say it is now my favorite handgun.

When in doubt, that's always the way to go.

I had a gen 3 G20 that I never could quite get used to, at least not enough to consider it a primary go to gun. I recently sent it to Cold Bore Customs and had the max grip reduction done to it and WOW what a difference!

I have an old Delta Elite that I carried as a duty gun in the early 90's and have used fro range qualifications and IDPA and USPSA matches, with the old school full-power 10mm ammo from the 80's/90's. I had to put on a new plunger tube once, but otherwise it has held up fine to plenty of hot ammo.

But, I bought it when the only real players in 10mm were S&W and Colt and S&W's were DA/SA crap. If I was buying one now, I'd buy Glock - cheaper and more durable and more rounds and fewer levers and controls.

Weren't the 10mm G20 was introduced in the late1980s/early 1990s?
