    I know this is a totally pointless thread, but I don't care. After recently expanding my collection with my G20LS, Delta Elite, and LC9, I have come to a realization. My Glock 29 is the perfect gun. To me, there really is no better gun, and no one will ever convince me otherwise. Sure, the LC9 is easier to carry, but I can carry the G29 24/7, and have for almost a year. I just can't believe that such an amazing gun exists, but is so under-appreciated. I am almost certain the G29 is Glock's worst selling model. It's really a shame.

    Here's why it's perfect:
    -It costs $500-550 (at that price, why not get two?)
    -It's chambered in the amazing 10mm
    -You get 10+1 rounds of anything from .40S&W to 800ft-lbs of energy, or 15+1 with G20 mags
    -It's more than capable of human SD
    -It's a capable woods SD weapon
    -You can hunt with it
    -It's accurate
    -It's dead reliable
    -Lube's not even necessary (but still advisable)
    -You could mud-wrestle with it and it would still work (that's for you Kegs)
    -It's cheap and easy to replace
    -You can shoot .40S&W, .357SIG, or 9x25 Dillon with just a barrel
    -It's tougher than nails
    -You can replace ANY part on the gun in the field with a damn stick
    -It fits my hand as if Glock used my hand as the model (especially with Pearce +0 extensions)
    -Did I mention it's chambered in 10mm?

    I'm sure there are some things I missed, but to me, it just doesn't get any better. I love my other guns, but they will always play second fiddle to the G29. I really can't imagine a better gun. I can't wait to get a Gen4 G29! All hail the Glock 29!!!

    100% agree. And I've recently thought about posting A gushing love story about my 29SF, so you're not that crazy 21. The perfect pistol I think.

    SUPER THREAD :wavey:
    One additional reason the G29SF is great. The factory dual spring guide rod is the best of all the glocks. ( I have owned every glock model except the 380's & G18.) My son and I both carry the G29sf.

    What ammo do you use in your carry gun? Do you use the factory recoil spring or an aftermarket heavier one? I know many on here switch to the wolff 21lb spring in the 29

    Ditto here... Studied 10mm for a long time before purchasing. After deciding, all I had to do was to find the right delivery system. About then Glock introduced the 29. Wife finally found me on just in time for my B-day. Zowie!!!!

    My g29 is my gun, set up just like I want it....and it will stop any creature my side of the Mississippi, and I can conceal it most times, but I must admit, in the summer, it can be difficult to conceal....then I put it in a Tommy's gun pak fanny pak...It is all good with my g29.

    I don't know if I could agree with this perfect gun idea!
    But Shadow carries this mighty little ballistic blaster...

    I've been eyeing the G20 for a while now. Shooting 40 out of the same gun with just a barrel swap... I did not realize that! When the Gen4 coming?

    I love these pics. They could be enlarged and hung on the wall of the reloading room.

    A G29 will be owned by me someday. It is on my short list after getting through a couple of other projects.

    The only thing I can think as an addition to mine would be a very nice longslide conversion for the G-29...I know they make the LS for the G-20. But a LS for the G-29 with long barrels threaded to accept comps or cans would be the abolute best addition I would consider adding to this perfect package!

    My reason for this is that the barrel lugs of the G-29 I believe work better than the G-20 setup so I feel the mass of the long slide would actully work even better!

    Oh yea and the extra capacity magazines real work with this package as well!

    Amen that's why I picked up my second SF at the start of the year.
