New G29 owner

Finally...after years of .40 and wanting a 10mm I bought a G29 Gen 4 last weekend. I am already thinking of a G20 with a 6" barrel next as well as reloading for the 10. I have about 200 rounds thought the G29 and am loving it so far. NOT disappointed with the 10 at all!

I love my Gen4 G29 the only problem I've found wth mine is it doesn't like semi wadcutters but functions flawlessly with all other ammo. Congrats on the new family member. I highly recommend a g20 also great hunting pistol.

Congratulations. My G29 Gen 3 is one of the very few handguns I own that I like so much I often think of buying a 2nd one (for no logical reason whatsoever). It's hard for me to imagine that, if you like it now, you won't like it even more over time.

It's also hard for me to say at that same time "I'm not a Glock fan" and "I love this gun". It seems ridiculously blocky, bulky and fat and ugly. I absolutely hate being forced to carry it everyday because it is otherwise so perfect.

Thanks all. Got Underwood on the way, Have shot the .40 and 10mm back to back several times and I am definietly on board with the 10. Shot at 10mm at 4 layers of 2 x 6 at 15 yards and it completley penetrated three and the 4th barely stopped the 180 grain gold dot. Nice. I'm in with the 10! With the right ammo I am thinking this round will be great for most situations. I'll carry the G29 when hiking and feel better about it than with the .40. Like that time we ran across 2 black bears on the trail when we were hiking...

Bongo - what barrel is that on your G29? Im looking at extended barrels and really like that look and the extra velocity in the 29.

I have a version of that, use this 4.6'' barrel in a g30, shoots the UW 180gr TMJ at 1272 fps, also shoot hot 40s&w out of it
too.

The G29 is a lot more enjoyable to shoot than the G22 I am issued. Congrats on getting yourself a great GLOCK.

It is indeed the Lonewolf 4.6" that Happie2Shoot linked to in his post above. I've since cut about 3/8" or so off the end because I only wanted a bit of an extension strictly for aesthetics. The barrel now extends just a tad over 3/8" beyond the slide.

The 10 Ring

I took 10 seconds or so on the benchtop disk grinder to remove the laser etched logo--that's why there is none on the top of the barrel.

Glad you're enjoying the G29. I personally have no reason to buy another Glock really, now that I've found the '29.

True, ... of course, you could pick up spare barrels in .40S&W and .357Sig, which then turns a G29 into a unique 3-in-1 gun.
