Glock 10 mm

    It doesn't kick bad. I've wondered why people worry about 10mm recoil and I think in part it's because people hype up the 10mm's power (nuking small countries with it, shooting the 10mm causing the earths axis to shift, all the power of a 20mm Vulcan in a smaller package, etc). It's a service caliber cartridge, it's not going to snap wrists. Also the G20 is the heaviest Glock model. I would say it recoils a little more than a G21, but I've shot my .40's that kick harder (sometimes) than the 10mm.

    I may be getting an OD Gen 29 this week. Hopefully it pans out.

    Recoil is extreamly subjective.

    Personally I find even my heaviest 10mm loadings pleasant to shoot I will say with hot loadings the G20 is easier to shoot than my steel Delta Elite.

    Shooting a G29 is more of a handful but even that is t painful in the least. It's just allot less grip to hold on to!

    Agree, posted this pic in another thread yesterday.

    I was actually nervous to send the first 9x25 down range... had a good laugh that day.

    The 10mm is a very fun round to shoot. A great caliber for a reloader... lots of options.

  8. The factory must have left out the recoil on my 10mm pistols as well. I'll call first thing in the morning and see if I can get it shipped.

    The thing we need to keep in mind OP is that RECOIL is the sign of POWER in a caliber. My .22 rifles don't recoil at all, but I wouldn't want to take them to a firefight. It blows my mind the number of guys who will only shoot a caliber that is COMFORTABLE for them to shoot. What?!? Are we picking out mattresses here?!? My guns recoil because it means there's some serious ft./lbs. of energy being transferred to the intended target. If I wanted soft and comfortable I'd carry a roll of Charmin. Or a G19. :rofl:

    Thanks everyone for your responses. They were very helpful and encouraging. I will try to rent the Glock 20 and Glock 29SF for a comparison before buying.

    If the Glock 10 mm will kill a wild pig, it definitely will stop a bad guy coming into one's home to do bad mischief.
     
  13. This but I only own 1 G 20!
     
  14. This too! I have taken 2 Boars and it was NO problem!

    Nope... no problem. A 180 XTP at 1300 or a 200 XTP at 1200 will bring a piggy down real quick.

    That's really good to know bc I never order the "hot" loads just standard stuff especially the XTP bc of the price:) I do feel more confident with it as a side arm when hunting. Will be even sweeter when I can actually be close enough to actually hunt with the g20sf!!

    Oh don't get me wrong... these are hot loads! I handload my 10mm hunting ammo to the full original Norma specs.

    My 180 XTPs are at 1300, Hornady factory XTP is at 1180.
    My 200 XTPs are at 1200, Hornady factory XTP is at 1050.

    But believe me, that 180 at 1180 will still DROP a pig!

    First load up some hot .357 Magnum in a lightweight snubby. Fire all rounds, cuss, empty the chambers, shake your hand.

    Second shoot a magazine full of hot 10MM through your G20, you'll love it and talk to it like a fine woman. :cowboy:
