    How did you meet? Range, gunstore? What were you thinking? Yes, no? Has that changed or stayed the same?

    I had a Colt Delta Elite. It consistently splattered gun powder back at the operator (me) and was only marginally accurate. I got tired of the hot powder baths, so I sold it and bought a G20. That was a long time ago, maybe 1994.
    It's the same range/store/ club both my son and I currently patronize. Since then, I've been with many members of the Glock family, and still am.

    Just traded for a G29 tonight. Traded my G36. I will still cary my G23 mostly but when the weather is right the 10mm will prevail!

    I was sold when I shot 3 rounds almost in the same hole.
    Going milk jug shooting tomorrow!:supergrin:

    I just purchased a new G20 yesterday haven't shot it yet. I have been thinking about getting started in the 10mm for awhile. I purchased reloading dies and brass several months ago. As a reloader the 10mm is a very versatile semi-auto cartridge. I stopped in at the local fun store and seen the g20 and a decent price. I couldn't leave it..



    Oh.... I also wanted to be the cool guy with a 10mm at the range!:cool:

    After checking a ballistics table and realizing the 10mm is just behind the 41mag. I shot very accuratly with my 29 even better than my 20.

    An uncle has the Colt Delta Elite. Before that I had never considered the 10. Until I saw the 1076. Unbelieveable. Hasn't changed any over the years as my nightstand weapon. It is one of the few pistols I have which are family heirlooms. A G20 is in the future.

    Gotta' grab me a G20 one of these days. I have a Delta Elite I've had over 20 years, and will probably never sell.

    After researching the ballistics and firing one at the range - bought my 1st G29 used. Had a frame recall Glock replaced it with a new one 16 weeks later. Did not want to be without one for that long again so I bought a second one. Traded one of them for a G20. Held a 20sf so I sold the 20 and got a 20sf. Had to have a matching 29sf so sold my other 29. Now I just have a 29sf and a 20sf. My 20sf is my favorite and is now my EDC. Neither one of them is ever far away. Keep on in my Maxpedition and the other on me.

    `Firing one (G20SF) at the Range...a friend had one....*did alot of research...Then..I Had to have one....and will never Look back! `With Full hot Loads...The sheer "velocity" of the rounds means you have a higher chance of activating a hollowpoint when it hits something soft and it `penetrating deep` enough to give maximum tissue damage.`....I an very happy with it`.

    Well they say the 1st step is to admit......

    Yes I love my 10mm....Why..."Shoot the biggest, fast, hard hitting cartridge you can handle comfortable"...

    After running through the FS 4 day course with my G20c, I was sold...Added at G29sf, then a LW Tactical slide to the G20c with a 5.15" barrel...

    Just to make sure I was not missing anything picked up a Kimber 10mm.

    For me the Double Tap ammo is the way to go...Both the Glocks have LW 40sw barrels for plinking and playing around.

    When I bought my first G19, my friend bought a G20. I shot his, did the research...BAM, I bought one.

    originally got the G-21 due to the ammo supply issue. Solved that by reloading for several years. Then i realized that i could have more power and capacity in the same sized package. And i shot it a little better. Many of the common myths about 10mm fall flat with experience.

    Sold on 10mm,

    I hated the 10mm, then I shot a friends and wasnt sold....Then 10 years later and shooting the 40sw and wanting "more" I looked into a 10mm, got a 20c and now I reload 10mm, shoot 10mm, got to have 10mm, now I have a G29 and thinks are looking good.

    I like the idea of 10mm, but it seems like ammo is super hard to find and expensive???

    Nope on both.
    Pulled into a town of 2,000.
    Found a small fishing shop.
    He had 10mm AE for $17/box of 50.

    Reload or order from the internet = no problem.

    I also thought 10mm ammo was hard to find....started looking and come to find out its everywhere. Plus on the reloading to, find all kinds of deals on brass, bullets, primers, powder....just look around and its like Santa clause its EVERYWHERE,EVERYWHERE!!!!
