Just shot my G29 with Underwood 155gr

I have only one word for this:

OUCH!!!!!!

Man, Im not recoil adverse but the g29 with Underwood 155 is HOT.

My g20's with the same ammo arent bad at all but YIKES that some strong crapola there!

I've been looking at their 9mm stuff and from the specs it appears to be HOT! I know that my Glocks are tough, but am curious at how aversely Underwood ammo will impact the longevity of my pistols. What has been your experience with this stuff?

I've run 180 and 165gr underwood through my g29 - it shoots great! Accuracy is great. Recoil is manageable. Love it!

The accuracy of the ammo was really excellent but admittedly I was getting pretty flinchy by the end.

I cant speak to the other calibers but Ive shot a fair amount of Underwood 10mm.. and it IS real 10mm!

Yeah, after about three magazines of nuke loads out of my G29, my palm is in pain. My trigger finger starts to hurt as well. The Glock 20 is a little more forgiving.

Last time I went to the range, I shot PMC 200gr and after 200rds, my palm was quite sore as well.

Today I'm going to shoot some 180gr Underwood in my 29SF - I bought 300, sounds like I'll only get maybe 100 in before my palm starts to hurt. lol

Underwood 155gr XTP 10mm runs 1420+/-30fps out of my G29, stock barrel. And, yes, it stings a bit.

Yikes!
I've only used the Hornady 155 which goes about 1,270 out of my 29.
Not wanting any more pop than that either.

Get a shooting glove, or better yet, find a 9mm fan, and borrow his!

Don't know your age, but, the problem with your plan is, about the time your hands get tough enough, the carpel tunnel sets in.

Are you getting a G30 for your birthday?

Being 29, fire away! You have plenty of years to blast away.

lol Nope, but the 29 I purchased was quite close to my birthday actually...

Next on the list is another 10mm - the Glock 20. My middle finger knuckle on my firing hand is a bit sore from smacking the bottom of the trigger guard and rubbing it. So I'm going to go full-size and see how she shoots comparatively.

Besides, why not? 29SF for carry and a 20 for wheeeeee!

Underwood Ammo and a Glock 10mm pistol (or 10mm conversion) are a match made in heaven.

The Underwood 10mm 220gr HC-FN load is also a real "palm pounder", but in a good way (and you won't go blind). The specs are 1200 fps, 703 ft-lbf energy and Taylor KO 15. Great alternative for woods protection and/or hunting. Just in case Gaston is reading this, I promise to shoot the HC-FN load in an aftermarket barrel only.

WHY NOT? I'LL TELL YOU WHY NOT! From the tone of your post, I can tell you are smitten with the G29 SF. The purchase, by you , of a G20, will tear your heart strings, of which, you actually prefer. Believe me, it is quite the dilemma. You'll be able to handle it, but, just barely, I'll admit. When heading out the house, and you have to decide, which gets the nod, and why, is problematic. Just get a G20, and you will see what I mean, then get back with me. I'ts a dilemma, I tell you.

Contemplating getting someone to cut down the G20 so the magwell is the same length as the G29 but have the barrel and slide, ergo power, of the G20.

Personally I loathe this idea on any gun but particularly in this case I think it's awful.

The slide of the g20 is very heavy and I think the weight distribution would be horrible.

General Glocking

This sums it up for me -
Quote:
Unless you want a handgun that has a longer sight radius for better hand held accuracy, a longer barrel for higher velocity (plus the abilty to add a 6" barrel for even more 10mm punch), a heaver slide to help dampen that snappy recoil I get from a lighter slide on a Glock 29, and with a G29 legnth frame, the thing is just as concealable as a G29 when carried in a IWB holster (the butt isn't sticking out of your hip), and I can use a factory magazine that is just as easily obtainable.
So in summary: More accurate, more powerful, and a smoother recoil inpulse, than a G29, but just as concealable.

Contemplated that move, myself, a couple years back. Decided I much prefer the G20 grip size to the 29, even with the pearce mag extensions on the 29. I just prefer plenty of grip space, over cramming my fingers on the 29. The pearce make it, barely manageable, and because of the extensions, I've made the 29 my primary carry. I carried last summer with just a t-shirt, and could keep the 29 hidden. Could not pull it off with the 20 though.
