No I shoot and reload only the minimum to mid range levels. I dont shoots "hot" loads at all. In my opinion there is no sense in that because it damages your guns over time.
Actually, the G29 was designed to handle full power loads, they just put a lower power
recoil spring in it - and if you are just shooting (weak) ammo, you might as well just
get a 40 S&W, as you obviously don't need a more powerful pistol.

I've owned a G20 and a G29SF...still have the G20, the G29 is long gone.

For 10mm the G20 is great, nice feel, good at handling recoil and an all around good pistol for it's caliber. I did not care for the G29...horribly top heavy even for a Glock and just not a pleasant pistol to shoot. Oh sure if you use wimpy loads it's not bad recoil wise but as mentioned above...why get a 10mm of you're gonna use wimpy loads???

I'm sure the G29 is just great for some people but not me...it was by far my least favorite Glock and one of the pistols I have never regretted getting rid of.
If I could carry a G20 instead of a G29 I would, as the G20 (certainly) has
better handling and less recoil - BUT I cannot conceal the G20 acceptably,
so I choose the G29; it's "top heavy" because it needs to be, and I accept
the "negatives" of it (though they're minimal) to carry a higher power AND
concealable weapon.

I believe the "concealability" is really the "separator" (of choice) between
the G20 and G29, as the other "differences" aren't big enough to be a
factor, including the recoil, which (with a tad of practice) is easy to master.

Go with the Glock 20 or the Glock 40. (Ignore the RIP rounds, they are for home defense) Also get some hunting rounds: Solid Core 10mm Auto

I've looked at A LOT of reviews and videos of the "RIP" ammo,
and it is just another (overpriced) "gimmick" round that isn't any
better than (even worse than) a XTP, Gold Dot or HST round,
and costs TWICE as much. The only thing "better" about the
RIP, is that it looks "cool" - no thanks, I prefer performance.
