    My 45 is a beast. Personally, I can't find a practical reason for a 10mm unless I was defending myself against bears or great white sharks. :)

    I like the 9mm, 40S&W, and the 45ACP. But when it comes to a caliber that I feel comfortable taking anywhere for any purpose in a handgun the 10mm makes a lot of sense. Now I understand one size doesn't fit all, but me being an avid hunter the 10mm paired to a Glock 20 is the perfect combination between power and capacity.

    Is the 9mm, 40S&W, and 45ACp all good calibers for self defense..of course they are. But the 10mm does everything they will from light 135gr bullets to heavy 200gr bullets. You can load them down or hang out with you Johnson out packing full power loads. The 10mm really is a jack of all trades.

    You dont want to protect yourself from bears or sharks? What is wrong with you? And who needs practical anyway? If that was the case we wouldn't need to add guns to the collection all the time.

    A Glock 20sf is on my short list to buy one of these days. It can easily be converted to .40 or 9mm, also.

    Nothing less than 9mm, and good hits, should suffice.

    So are you saying I don't need to defend myself against bears and sharks? How dare you! You just totally blew the story I spilled to my old lady about why I needed a 10mm. Damn! Now what will the reason be?... :faint:

    Well who is going to check to see if the 10mm or the 40 cal. will last as long as the 45 acp? Let me know in 79 to 81 years if they are here and the 45 acp is gone.

    10mm is fine if you want to shoot someone, and the person behind them, and the person behind THEM!

    It works so well virtually no LE uses it. Even in Alaska.
