    I just picked up my first 10mm this afternoon a 29sf and I can't wait to get some ammo in so I can try it out. I have been thinking about a 10 for some time and had planed on a Delta at some point. I love my 1911's but only carry them at BBQ and the range so I thought since I carry a 30sf everyday why not a 29sf. I made a trade with a fellow forum member on one of my other Glock's and so far I am happy. I plan a order to Underwood tonite so I should be shooting next week. Thanks and please pass along any tip's and advise you can as I am a 10mm noob.:wavey:

    Congrats on the new G29!

    --Save your brass, because you just never know when you'll get the itch to start reloading. 10mm and .45 are some of the best ones to reload, too!

    You are cooler than me. I don't have a 10mm. And believe me, I want one :)

    Awesome! Congratulations. The 10mm Auto is a terrific cartridge. Versatile.

    If ever there was a pistol cartridge that was well suited for handloading, it is the 10mm. If you are not already setup for hand loading, that would be a smart consideration. The break even on cost is reasonably quick with 10mm Auto. Keep all of your brass - just in case you decide to go that route. I have not purchased a box of facory 10mm ammo for years. I load everything I shoot. Reloads are $16 - $17 per hundred for quality range ammo. Remington UMC is going to be $50 more than that. Ugghhh.

    Make sure to check out The 10 Ring:

    and the 10mm Reloading forum:

    Have fun! That 10mm Glock should suit you well for many years.

    No need. The 29SF (and the 20 for that matter) are easy to shoot. With regular range ammo, it feels like a .40. Maybe even better due to the heavier slide. The myth about the 10 being a kicker is just that. Myth.

    Tip #1 :rofl:
    I used to own and shoot a lot of 44mag so I was kind of expecting tip #1. Nothing says hold on quite like a 2 1/2" 44 mag. Keep those tips coming I need all the help I can get.
    Thanks

    I would really like to get a 20 but that just opens the door to stock an additional caliber of ammo. I stock too many now, have 3 40 cal pistols so that will have to do for a while. A 10 mm would be really cool though! Congrats on the 29 also!

    Buy a 10 to 40 conversion barrel and shoot all the 40 you want. Use the 10mm for your carry round.

    Agreed. Spent some time at the range with my 20 and my 21. Using a variety of ammo, we all concluded the the 20, while "snappier" was easier to shoot than the 21.
