considering a Glock 20 or 29 10mm.........Bear activity on the property. Only for defense
S&W just came out with a M&P pistol in 10MM. About the size of a Glock 19 (on the shorter barrel option) with 15rd capacity and optics-ready slide. Worth a look.
Glock 20 if you want to have a full grasp on the grip, also if you’re on your own property you don’t really need a Glock 29 unless you wanna walk around concealing it
The Glock 29 is a compromise. It has a smaller grio and a shorter barrel so it can be concealed and you don't need to conceal the gun on your property do you? If so, just get the G20 and wear it underneath a cover garment.
What 40 Mike Mike said above.I’m going to go against the grain and recommend the G29 over the G20.
Why? The platform is more versatile. It will accept a weapon light or laser. Shorter in overall height than a G19 with flush mag. Accepts grip extensions and factory OEM 15 round G20 magazines for a reload or home defense.
Smaller footprint and somewhat lighter than the G20. Concealed or not, the G29 is simply easier to carry.
Aftermarket extended barrels will get you to G20 ballistics and beyond for the G29, if needed. Personally, I think Buffalo Bore 200 grain hardcast out of a G29 is a great woods combo, even from the 3.78 inch barrel.
For general field use or carry, G29.
For dedicated handgun hunting, G40 with MOS capability.
