    Rather new here so please excuse me if there been post on this one in the past. I'm looking at getting a second Glock (new addiction). I wanting to know what potential the Glock 20 (10 mm) has for close range hunting? I often get within 25 yards of deer and hogs and thought this may be a fun firearm to own. Any experiences would be very appreciated.

    Lots 'o people hunting deer, hogs, even black bear with a 10mm. Uncle Ted (Nugent) uses one and is a big advocate of the 10mm cartridge.

    Getting a 20L slide from Lone wolf to go with my 6" barrel. 200-230 grain (haven't decided quite yet) hardcast DT ammo is what I will likely try out on a black bear...

    10mm is a good round for a woods gun. It will take down most animals within 25 yards. Try the search feature there are many posts on this subject...And its desease...I am pretty sure you don't have a decease....

    The 10 is perfect caliber for hunting or a backup in a semi-Auto cartridge. I myself love my G29sf, its my one battery gun. I would go with the G20 with the 6" barrel for hunting though. However you see it you can't go wrong with the 10mm.

    I take a 29sf when I hunt, and when game gets real close (inside 30 yards) I use it. It has taken 4 deer so far.

    So much for spell check! What ever it is it's making me want more Glocks!

    I did go back and edit my original post so y'all (Texas thing) don't think I have other issues LOL.

    I had a glock 20 10mm, didn't much care for it. Too big for my likes, going with a CZ when I can put the scratch together. I like the 10mm round though. It is ideal for my uses when in the field. Esox357.

    10 should be good, I have taken hogs, coyote, coy-dog, and groundhog with 9mm from a Beretta 92.
    It is more about shot placement in auto pistols than power.
    What I do, as a bowhunter, is consider my 9mm like my bow, 25 or less yards, the closer to 10 yards the better.
