I've always wanted a 10 MM, but do love the .45 ACP with a passion, going back to my U.S. Army days in the late '60's. I currently own Glock models 26 & 36. Main use will be for long, 15 to 25 mile Everglades area trail walks, with large Gator and Python populations, and general self protection in "civilized" terrains. What do you think, GT? .
