I have the Glock 20 and carried it as one of my authorized duty sidearms when I was still a Parole Officer. The G20 is still one of my favorite handguns, and I keep it available as one of my primary home defense pistols nowadays.

Mine has never had a functional issue, not even with the dirty, remanufactured practice ammo my department used to provide.


My G20 is strictly stock, although I do use a mounted light in the home.

I have a S&W 1006, a 4th Gen G20, and a 3rd Gen G29. Both Glocks are full frame, not SF. The recoil isn't bad at all. The 29 is my EDC, in a SuperTuck. The 20 is a little more mild to shoot, but I do feel like I shoot the 29 better. Probably because I practice with it every week since it's my EDC. I love the 10mm platform. I can drop the 5" barrel in my 20 and hunt with it with some hot loaded CorBon if I want, or I can load it with some Georgia Arms ammo for plinking. I keep the 29 loaded with Hornady Critical Defense JHP's. I got the 20 and 29 together in a trade, and got the 1006 a few days later. Since then I haven't even picked up any of my .45's or 9mm's.

Have a Gen4 G20, shoots well. I've had several 20sf's, 29sf's, a regular 20 was my first 10mm. I've had a Kimber Eclipse 10mm and a 6" S&W 610.

Glock 20 3rd generation great gun approaching ballistic of 41 mag in a semi auto got to love it . No it's not the biggest boy on the block but it holds its own if you have the full power loads.

Reloading is the key to 10mm. Most of the stuff on the shelf is garbage, nothing more than 40 +P. There is some stout stuff out there but the prices are up there.

I have an EAA Witness. Runs amazing now that I replaced all the recoil springs. I want a G20 or G29 eventually... Sold my Delta Elite a couple years ago, but I'm not a big fan of 1911s in general

I own a G29 SF. With regular off the shelf factory FMJ's, it feels like shooting .40 S&W. Even when shooting premium ammo such as Corbon and Underwood, the perceived recoil impulse isn't as stout as I thought it would be. I really enjoy my G29 SF.

I have a 1006, a 1066, a Glock 20 and a Ruger GP100 3 inch custom revolver chambered in 10mm. It is a fun round and I would like to get a 29 someday soon.

I carry a Glock 29 Gen 3. Only mod is Pearce grip extensions. This is my first 10mm, but now I'm really wanting a G20 Gen 4, but my wife would kill me. They had a used, but looked brand new, G20 Gen 3 at the local FFL when I picked up my G29 recently, I really wanted it.

As far as 10mm hard to find, I have bought about 350 rounds in the last month w/o problems. Sometimes you have to wait until things are in stock, but you can always find something if you just want to shoot. It is a little pricey though. Gunbot is listing plenty of 10mm from Prvi, Remington, Winchester, Hornady, Blazer, Buffalo Bore, etc... in stock right now, but I usually wait until I see something that is a decent deal.

G20 gen 2 and gen 3

Saw the gen 3 last week, and it was like a puppy in the window.

EDC G29 with a Pearce grip extension. Love it. Gotta get a G20 one of these days.

No semi-auto 10mm, but I do own a S&W 610 revolver with the 4" barrel. One of my favorites in the safe!

G20 with 6" aftermarket barrel so I can load my own rounds, Carry it for Black Bear protection. Never shot a Black Bear with it but it gives me confidence to walk in Bear country. If a Bear launched a surprise charge from 40 yards ... he'd most likely be on me before I could draw ... but they seem to sense I'm not afraid and stay clear ... I make noise in the bush so they know the bipedal is coming.

Thank you sir. You have quite a few yourself that I wouldn't mine having, especially the Bren. I was a little disappointed that the new ones fell through. I don't guess anyone from Vltor ever talks about those now. I think the Bren sort of has a bit of a curse over it
