    Just bought these two beauties this year:

    Custom Colt Delta Elite by Marianne Carniak

    Dan Wesson CBOB in 10mm

    For me, the popularity of the 10mm is on the rise. ;)

    I saw a documentary on whale hunting and the Eskimos had rifles to protect themselves from polar bears. They all had Mini-14's.

    I'm a big 10mm fan. I have the G20 and G29 and am really surprised that I don't have a 1911 in 10mm...yet. :cool:

    I asked about the SP when I had my GP100 done and he said it wasn't possible, just not enough there to work with.

    I purchased a used G20 here a while back and hadn't had a chance to shoot it yet. So I went with a fellow glocktalker to a shoot in Beckley WV last night to shoot it for the first time. shot a 480 out of 500. Not bad for the first time around.

    I checked out the new Colt Delta Elite on Colt's website Friday. They sent me to my local gun store. I headed over to the gun store to buy one, but they told me they have been unable to get them in. I wonder what this means? Can't Colt keep up with demand? Is their run so limited that they are all sold out already?

    It means Colt, who is trying to get their act togeather from a commercial standpoint, hasn't gotten there yet.

    Its probably a little of both. 10mm fans will gobble up almost any 10mm that pops up, a few non 10mm shooters may want a DE for the history of the gun and finally its unlikely Colt produces them on a constant basis and if they do its probably only the amount they need to be profitable. The gun is probably a limited run gun likely.

    No matter what 10mm supporters want to believe or hope for, 10mm guns just don't sell well, not in large or even moderate scale numbers.

    What it boils down to is that, while the 10mm chambering may not be one of the most popular, it should be. ;)

    So, let me get this straight, "Its probably a little of both. 10mm fans, will gobble up almost any 10mm that pops up, a few non 10mm shooters may want a DE for the history of the gun"! Then your opinion, " No matter what, 10mm supporters, want to believe, or hope for, 10mm guns just don't sell well, not in large or even moderate scale numbers". Yet there are those of us, that want to purchase them, yet never can because of not enough being produced. I guess it is, "your opinion" that is the accurate one in this thread.:upeyes:

    I love my G20 and I've carried it before when camping in bear country. I'd love to see the 10mm on the rise- ammo is currently too expensive for me to get out and practice much with my G20.

    It's a good round. I'd be just as happy with it as I am with 40SW. Now if someone wants to drop off several 5 gal buckets of 10mm brass and ensure that I will always find more lying around my club, I could buy some large pistol primers and adjust my dies. They'd have to wave a magic wand over my 40SW guns at this point to make them 10mm as well.

    If the 40SW never happened, and the 10mm took off like it could/should have, there would be a lot more of us shooting 10mm.

    As for the the 10mm "being on the rise", I guess it's just like the conomy getting better. Maybe it is, but 1.5% GPD and 9% unemployment isn't exactly a recovery.

    Well when I say 10mm fans remember there are so few of you overall. And only a very few will add {A} 10mm to the stable. If there were more of you then 10mm's would be made by more gunmakers than the current offerings available. Facts are stubborn things.

    This seems to say it best,

    What factual evidence shows the 10mm on the rise?

    The same factual evidence that shows there is no inflation.

    Actually, SAAMI keeps track of the guns sold, ammo sold, and reloading dies sold by caliber. I don't know to get that info since most SAAMI stuff is members only.
