I have recently become interested in the 10mm for home defense, possible bear defense, carry in the truck during travel, and possibly concealed carry although this is less likely. Not looking for a big revolver vs little auto debate. I understand those pro's and cons pretty well. I have always been a big revolver kind of guy, but I think there are some good applications for a 10mm. I have read a lot of old threads here that have covered some of the brands mentioned in the thread title but am curious what you guys think.
If I were carrying as a service weapon every day all day, I would probably have to concede the attributes of the Glock, but I am not a LEO and darn those things are ugly. I have to admit that I have an aesthetic preference for the Kimber although some of their other pistols have gotten some mixed reviews. I haven't really heard anything bad about the Target II though. I have heard mostly good things about the rest that I listed too although I haven't heard much about the Wilson. Is it because there aren't many willing to pay the price for a Wison? I am going to go shooting with a buddy tomorrow who has a 1006 so that should be interesting. It felt good in my hand tho a little heavy when he brought it by the other day.
Interested in your collective wisdom as I am sort of new to the auto pistol world.
