Hello from Rockwall TX. My woods carry gun has always been a 6" 357 mag. I wanted a semi auto pistol and have been doing tons of research. First decided on the 10mm round because of comparable magnum performance. Next was platform. The Glock 20 has a reputation online of being the best shooting 10mm on the market. Never owned (or fired) a Glock or a 10mm and off I jumped with a leap of faith. After 200 rounds on Christmas day I can say "I AM IN LOVE!" At 15 yards I was consistently 1-2" high and 1-2" left. I am a lefty and did switch out the mag release "felt like a gun smith or something" after some online video. I ordered the Glock adjustable rear sight today to help get in the bulls eye. Thanks to you all for all of your post that allowed me to make a great decision on my new favorite side arm!

I have a G20, same reason you do, for the woods. I put a Lone Wolf barrel in it and carry Underwood 220 grain hard cast lead in the dark ol' woods. I love the gun, never had a hiccup with it. I'm brandy new to this forum but have been a Glock fan for a very long time. I'd bet you will become one as well. GREAT CHOICE I think! Merry Christmas!

I changed the barrel because my understanding is it would shoot hard cast lead bullets without a hitch and perhaps the OEM barrel would not handle them as well. And there is a "cool" factor with a little longer stainless barrel .. ha! A longer barrel equates to a bullet accelerating for a smidge longer period of time ie. little more muzzle velocity. Out of the ten, not sure it matters much. Lone Wolf claims the lock up is better and the barrel is more accurate than the OEM barrel. They both work just peachy in my personal experience, my main rationale was carrying the hard cast bullets in the woods and avoiding possible drama if it wasn't necessary. The old Boy Scout thinking I suppose. I watch Hickok45 on you tube, he did a video where the stock barrel had some problems with hard cast. And that's my take on it, right or wrong. My G20 is a superb handgun. Yours will be too.
