    I like the G20 with the SF grip reduction. I don't find the 10mm particularly harsh to shoot and it's one of Glocks heaviest pistol weighing a touch under 28oz. The sights were replaced with Warren Tactical/Sevigny sight set. Finding ammo is difficult and expensive.

    I have a G20SF now, never fired it. I'd like to sell it. After reading everything about the 10mm I'm afraid to shoot it. I'm worried I might vaporize something or myself. I've had a couple other G20s and G29s and one 4" 610 all gone now. I am in the market for a 6" 610 if I could ever find one.

    S&W 1006, one of the best 10mm out there. No longer in production :crying:however you still can find them if you are willing to pay.

    RIA 10mm, a very nice 1911 style 10mm for $600. (Some minor upgrades may be required to get it running 100%) http://www.glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1456301

    Gun: Only a G20SF. Only 10mm I have fired.
    Opinion: VERY pleasantly surprised how easy it was to shoot (I was fearing "340PD with 357Magnum"-like recoil... and it is nothing like that at all!). I love it.

    Curious how the old S&W and the 1911's compare with regards to perceived recoil. Does the extra weight help, or does the flex of polymer help, or are they fairly similar?

    I never shot my G20 and 1006 back to back, but the Smith weighs 11oz more than the Glock.

    Tanfoglio Witness 10mm. While its reputation isn't the best, the same could be said for myself. The gun hasn't let me down once with factory ammo. It only malfunctioned with a box of improperly loaded 10mm range reloads. Not a single malfunction with any factory ammo ive used, from 180 grain putt-putt Hornady to Double Tap and Cor-Bon nuclear loads. I even carried it for a time.


    I picked it because the 1006 has the same frame as the 4506, and I couldn't shoot that gun worth a rats in DA. The combination of single stack frame and heavy DA pull meant a missed shot. I ran hundreds of rounds of .45 ACP through it and couldn't get an A zone hit in DA, ever . I changed grips, changed stances......and all in vain. It was a painful moment when I sold that gun. The 4506/1006 is a nice piece, but in a defensive scenario I may as well throw it at the scumbag.

    Not only that, its impossible to acquire for under $1000-and 10mm 1911s have the same problem.

    Glock's Model 20 doesn't fit my hand any better then the 4506 did, so that left the Witness. It seemed to be a risk given the online research, but its paid off in my case. The best $420 ive ever spent.

    I have, in the past owned 2 Glock 20 pistols, 1 Stainless Colt Delta Elite and my current 10mm, a 3rd Gen Glock 29 (since around 1998). Overall, the Delta Elite was the most accurate, but the least reliable of the bunch. I eventually decided to settle on only 10mm and I chose the Glock 29. I am considering the addition of a 4th Gen Glock 20, however.

    Gen 3 20. Love that thing. Idea nicely in my survival sheath chest holster. Full of 220 gr hard cast underwood it's good medicine for unruly things in the woods.

    Yup, I have a G29sf, extremely accurate with my after market barrel.

    Got a Glock 20, and a Colt Delta Elite.

    Here's a "before" pic of the Delta.

    I can't find a pic of the 'after' when I had it worked...but will post one when I get back home. (extended grip safety, commander hammer, fiber optic sights, and 3-hole trigger)

    Glock 20 was my first handgun. Owned a few other 10's over the years. A 10mm wasn't terribly practical as a first gun, but it served me well and I still love shooting it.

    10mm 1911. I find the 1911 to be an excellent 10mm platform for my needs.
