    I have wanted a 10mm Glock since I first shot a friends G20 more than a year ago. There aren't many other days I can recall leaving the range so happy with such a big smile as that day shooting 135gr DT Nosler rounds with ease.

    I happened across a great deal locally on this NIB unfired G29 SF with 50 rounds of DT 200gr controlled expansion hollow points.

    Can't wait to get her to the range. My WSF came in Monday, have Unique on hand, and my backorder from Starline should ship the 15th of this month.

    Looks like the rest but this one is mine :cool:

    Sounds like me. With all of the shortages, I have been using Midways backorder function A LOT. I am careful not to have so much stuff on backorder, that it would break the bank if it all shipped at once. I found that ordering directly from Starline gets you much better pricing (and I think my backorder turnaround was a little quicker too).

    Have fun with the G29. Looks great.

    Thanks.

    I did order straight from Starline though ;)

    And the powder came with 10K primers from Wideners.

    I agree. I think once you get in their system it cuts down on the published wait time. My last backordered purchase shipped about 3 weeks ahead of schedule.

    Congrats too there Firemedic. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

    Deal we can shoot it and your Foliage Grey G20! :supergrin:

    By the time you come back down I should have my loads dialed in for the 10mm.

    Congratulations! There is something nice looking about a 10mm Glock resting on a box of McNett's finest. I look forward to a full range report.
