    Please join me in e-mailing and putting a bug in the firearms company ears to release more pistols in 10MM Auto. All we can do is try. I know some hate the 10MM, but a lot of us love it. And to each his own!

    If it were more popular you would see more options, most companies won't produce something unless they believe it will sell. I sometimes think Glock is almost single handedly keeping the 10mm alive.

    I agree with 10mm options. But first things first. We need more ammo choices. When 10mm becomes more readily available at your discount retailer, and you are able to find factory loads of 10mm that are truly more powerful then 40 (loaded to the original Norma specs or better) you will see more 10mm being sold. And when more are sold others will jump on board.
    Will this ever happen? Probably not. But hey a person can dream.

    This isn't as corny as it sounds on the surface. A light compact 10mm auto carbine would be a great all-around woods gun, home defense gun, trunk gun......

    .....especially a woods gun!

    A good quality carbine would be something I'd like to see in 10mm.

    I think a 10mm carbine would be a good idea. I would also like to see .38 Super as an option too.

    A high end copy of the Sten Gun with a polymer stock would be nice.

    I emailed Ruger about doing a 10mm auto, never heard back. 10mm revolvers don't do a whole lot for me. I would like to see Beretta, HK, Smith M&P and Sig kick out 10mm's.

    There is a real pity. Word had it when their first .45 auto came out, that Bill Ruger had designed it with the 10mm in mind in case the FBI went that way. It was one of the sales points at the time to highlight how strong the gun was.

    Oh yes, A decent 10mm carbine would be the cat's meow.

    It would be nice to see more 10mm autos, but I just don't see it happening any time soon.

    I give Glock kudos for really sticking with the caliber. Other than Glocks, some 1911s, and maybe EAA, there isn't too much else available right now.

    I would get a Colt Delta in 10 mm. A friend has one and when I shot it, it was very nice.

    I've been shooting 10mm for a long time now. Bought and sold several 10mm options until I settled on what I have now, a Delta Elite and Glock 20. I plan to pick up a 29 at some time.

    I had two Smiths, a 610 revolver and a FBI contract 1076. Of those two, the 610 was fun to shoot but wasn't much more than what a N frame 357 gives, but less than a 41 mag and no way a 44 mag. Ended up selling the 610 to fund a Colt Special Combat.

    The 1076 is what I blame for 10mm not gaining any popularity. Its a top heavy brick with brick like ergos. I buy guns to shoot and I just didn't enjoy it. I sold it for a nice profit.

    The Delta is my fav, its a shooters platform. Heavy loads let you know something is going on LOL.

    The G20 is also a great gun. Its big but the ergos are better and it is fun to shoot. A lot to be said.

    I like the EA Wittiness feels nice, I only shot one example, once. but I hear iffy things about the build quality and service.

    A M&P would be just another G20, nice option if your anti Glock but still same flavor.

    All Steel Sig 220 in 10mm, now we are talking. HK USP would be cool. Any 45acp pistol would be of the right size.

    Between my custom Delta Elite and 10mm Cbob, I'm good on 10mm handguns. While I like the idea of A 10mm Glock, they're just too thick for me....girlie hands here.

    I give Glock tons of kudos for keeping the 10mm alive and healthy, but people do want choices.
