    Ive got a NIB Glock 29SF oon it's way to me ... Should have it by Thursday or Friday depending on USPS. Oh and one more thing. I'm gonna put as many round through it as I can this weekend (all reloads, naturally). I'm gonna wring that little puppy out!

    Just thought I'd gloat... Carry on!

    Nice....I'm jealous! Every freaking time I get some extra cheese stashed away for a G29, my wife comes up with a "need" for something. Last week it was a new pool vacuum....arghhhh :(

    Nick,
    I would be interested to see how that Crossbreed holster does for you. I am needing a good holster for my 29SF as well, and I don't know where to start!

    Actually, I just sold my Keltec PF9 for which I had a Crossbreed. LOVED the holster. Best IWB I've ever used. I knew as soon as I decided to get a G29 that's I'd also be buying a CB. Go for it.

    My 2nd choice is Smartcarry...

    3rd choice would have to be a Comp-Tac CTAC.

    There's a starting place for ya!

    Congrats Nick. That should be awesome. You are starting to accumulate a nice 10mm collection.

    Happy shooting!

    ...off topic a bit...

    For those that like the Crossbreed ST type of holster, Shielded Holsters makes a very similar (some might say knock-off) that I have had good results with. I use the Double Phalanx for my G20. Carries very comfortably, and the prices and shipping turnaround times are great.

    Thanks guys ... yea, I wish I hadn't had to part with my Razorback a year or two back... but its okay. It was for a good cause. I've got the staples of the collection now. I guess Its time to look for the next tier. A 6-6.5" unfluted 610, a Contender and a 1006.

    Who's with me??! :tongueout:

    Kind of, at least, with the 610, but it's going to be a 4" or 5". I've owned my last 6" + revolvers. Congrats on the 29SF. Have a blast!:supergrin:

    Ordered mine from a LGS, have no idea where he found it. It took about 3-5 days to find one, but find one he did.

    Picked up my G29SF today. I got a chance to shoot it this afternoon, what a sweet gun. I wish I understood why the felt recoil is so much less on the larger frame Glocks compared to shooting, say, some hot 9mm out of a G19.

    I shot the G29SF side by side against my G20SF and predictably I shot the G20SF better, but not a great deal better. When I get done with my normal trigger upgrade and some new sights, I reckon I will shoot it right along side its bigger brother. Very nice.

    Good deal, WeeWilly...

    I ran into a snag. Wife needs the car tomorrow so I may or may not get to pick mine up. Argh! Will update when I know more

    As for your recoil impressions, remember: the G29 (and G20 for that matter) are simply BUILT for more power. Heavier and wider slides and frames really absorb recoil!
