    Hello all just wanted to introduce myself, I just bought this a few days ago and took it to the range yesterday for a break-in. REALLY impressed by the way it shoots, powerful, accurate and fast. Any good ideas on iwb holsters for the G20? Also I'm thinking of Doubletap 135gr Nosler JHP for personal protection ? Any feedback is helpful.

    Right now it's stock, I'll do a .25 cent trigger on it soon
    and night sights but mainly I'm waiting on 1000rds from georgia arms then I'll really have some ideas of what this gun can do. :wavey:

    what you order from Double Tap and what you get can be two different things according to quite a few in this section. they have good ammo but seem to give you what they want instead of what you want (or so many have eluded to).

    congrats on the G20.

    Congrats on the G20.

    I am also considering buying some of the 135gr Noslers. This video was my inspiration, so it should help your decision too.

    I ordered the 180gr JHP Bonded Defense first since it's winter here in Chicago, and I figured any bad guy trying to break in would probably be wearing a heavy winter coat. After the video above I guess it wouldn't have mattered. The 135gr seems to have no problem whatsoever with penetration.

    Congrats on your G20 and welcome to the 10mm club.:cool:

    Now you need a G29 to keep the 20 company.

    given the Freakshow closing it's doors thread, it sounds as though loading components are getting rather hard to come by, even for the ammo makers.

    First let me congratulate you on your purchase, and welcome to the 10 Ring. There are quite a few folks that have very helpful information.

    I have handloaded that projectile to velocities similar to DT's published numbers. I was impressed initially with the tremendous energy of the round. Over time, I have become less enamored with the projectile. It is very fraggy and I believe that a heavier bullet with more solid constuction, like a 165 gr Gold Dot or 180 gr XTP, may be a better overall round.

    DT calls the Gold Dot "bonded" and the XTP "controlled expansion." Call first though because there are reports that substitute projectiles have been showing up in DT loads.

    Don't get me wrong, those 135 grainers at 1600 + fps are fun to shoot. However, they break up really easily and that is not desireable to me. Water filled milk jugs don't stand a chance against them, tee hee hee.
