    There is no production handgun on the planet that matches the G20/G29 platform for capacity, power, durability, reliability, accuracy, flexibility, affordability, and ease of maintenance.

    Sometimes I get on kicks of shopping around for othe guns and sometimes I even end up buying somethig else, but I always come back to my Glocks and especially the G20 as the #1 best do-it-all gun.

    With a $5XX G20/G29, you get:

    - A consistent, crisp trigger
    - A precision-machined slide coated with the toughest modern finish on a production pistol
    - 15 rounds of 10mm, the most versatile autoloading caliber ever produced
    - A gun for self-defense, competition, woods/hunting use, or just plain old plinking
    - A refined package with smooth edges. Nothing on the pistol or magazine is going to cut your fingers as you work the controls.
    - A simple manual of arms. No unnecessary controls to fiddle with, or to get in the way of your choice of grip. Everything is within reach.

    Glocks are a fantastic weapon system to begin with, but the G20/G29 are the tickets to shooting the fabulous 10mm round through one. Call me a fanboi but I'm convinced this is the best of the best.

    i have to concur, of course most of that goes for any of the Glock line up.

    but i too have become partial to the G20 and now have a new G29 that i havent shot yet but look forward to once the mag extensions get here.

    my only regret is that for folks with short fingers and or small hands, they dont get the thrill of comfortably shooting a G20, even with the short frame version....

    now, if DT could get their crap in one sock and ditch the MG bullet and load properly as they have in the past.....

    I've had it seems a zillion handguns over the last thirty years and yes the grip is a big factor of your like or dislike of a certain handgun. I have medium hands and G21's, G20's, Beretta 92FS all fit. The G20 has a rather large grip but the pistol is absolutely wonderful in every way. That large grip is so terrible I just bought a new G20 today. WOOHOO! ME HAPPY!:supergrin:



    Oh, I just noticed....howdy neighbor!

    I agree 100%. My G20 is my go to firearm. I am more accurate and just feel most comfortable with my G20. I don't get the "it's too big for my hands" jargon. It's not that big.

    Anyway, my G20 goes with me every day with my double tap 180gr JHP ammo. Now I just need a G29...

    G29SF is my CCW and G20SF is my HD gun. If I leave home w/o my G29 I will have the Colt DE 10 MM on the hip, but it's a collector's gun now at the age of 23 so that's a very rare occasion indeed. But damn that 10mm Colt feels so good, on the belt or in the hand. But the G29SF/20SF is more accurate for me, and would be my choice for shooting pins, steel or combat.

    If I understand you correctly, you mean to say that you are fond of your Glock 10mms. :supergrin:
    I have to admit, I'm kind of fond of my four Glocks too. I just switched to the minus connector and got the triggers polished on all of them. My current project is my G20SF. After test firing my first fifty rounds of 165 grain TMJ 10mm, I just loaded up another 250 rounds last night. .... amazing accuracy ...

    I was talking to my gunsmith the other day and he was telling me about how he had an old Glock 21 (with the smaller ejection port) and how he destroyed a cutter trying to enlarge his ejection port. The Tenifer finish was so tough, he had to get a diamond cutter to get through it. :shocked:

    The inspiration for this thread came from my newest pistol, a CZ-75B. I just got it and put 250 rounds through to ensure proper function. One FTE in those 250 rounds but everything else was good to go.

    It was a fine pistol yes, but it made me realize:

    1. The single action trigger on the CZ75B is mushier than the Glock trigger
    2. Two thumbs forward grip on the CZ75B requires either a thumb on the takedown lever, or in a place that doesn't provide good support. In other words, the Glock has less controls and therefore accomodates different grips better
    3. Takedown of the CZ75B is overly complicated compared to a Glock
    4. The design of the CZ75B is dated compared to a Glock
    5. The Glock is a completely user servicable, modular pistol with amazing parts availability
    6. I like the CZ75 a lot but I probably should have purchased a G21, G19, or G17 instead. Share parts, magazines, holsters, etc. with my other Glocks. Oh well, more guns for me!

    couldnt wait for the mag extension to arrive for my G29 so i went out today with it and one of my norinco ak47s.

    started out with remington green box FMJ, then walked up to PMC el dorado starfire h.p. then finished off with DT 165gr. GDs.....all in all it wasnt bad at all. of course the DT was a bit snappier, but i was able to control the gun plenty with just the two finger grip i had with the flat mag bases.:cool:

    on the other hand i burned the FRACK outa my finger when i grabbed my AK wrong after firing two mags rapid fire.:embarassed:

    Look a couple of posts up the page and you'll see this from the OP.
    I thought I'd kid him and post the diagram.

    In retrospect, it may have been a bad idea. :faint:

    Yeah, that giant CZ diagram has murdered the smooth scrolling of this thread!

    I like the CZ for sure, just have to get used to it I suppose.

    I have the G29,G20, and G20sf. I carried the G29 for 2 years until I fired the G20. I shot the 20 more accurately but just felt Just a little large so the G29 was a little harder to hold on to so naturally I had to have the G20sf and that one is just right. Now to fill out the glock 10mm collection I want the 29sf. What a sick addiction!

    I am leaning towards a G20/29 for next Glock, but never see any 10mil on my ammo scouting expeditions. I regularly check BiMart, Dick's, Big 5, here in Portland, OR metro area - nothing. No handloading desire - so where do I get the rounds? Thanks in advance.
