  • 10MM fans? Nay or Yay? Thoughts?

    I wrote an article awhile back on the 10mm. I hear a lot of woodsman like it while others hate it. What are your own personal thoughts on the 10mm? http://ericnestor.com/the-10mm-might...small-package/

      I like mine but I usually carry my .454 Ruger Alaskan.
      Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.

        <br/><br/>I carried my grizzly LAR too, it had a reliably package from Karl Sokol, but rarely shot it, I shot my glock a lot, but it started to have light primer strikes, then failure to go all the way into battery. I changed the recoil assembly, put a new striker with spring in and now it still fails to go all the way into battery. Last thing to do is change magazine springs. I am now training myself to the long take up in the sig verses the glock trigger. I put more hits on target with the glock, Iím dry firing to get used of the long take up on the sig. <br/><br/><br/>Shoot move communicate!

          Well that seems very unusual to me. I have six or seven Glocks and have never had a problem with any of them. Hopefully you get it straightened out. I love my Glocks and my wife really likes hers also.

            Just so you know, a very respected fellow forum member here is a brown bear guide and carries a colt in 10mm.

              <br/><br/>It is a glock I purchased way back in early 2000? Think I finally wore it out<br/><br/><br/>Shoot move communicate!

                Used to be a 10mm guy back in the late 90's and into the early 2,000s. While the Glock pistols are usually dependable I found that not to be the case with the wide selections of bullet weights offered in that caliber. I can certainly appreciate the cartridge but I've since moved on to the .45 Super for a heavier bullet. My pistol holds 15+1 so I didn't lose any capacity and have had no malfunctions with over 2,500 rounds fired in .45 acp/.45 Super..

                  Can you use either in the same platform without changing springs, etc?

                    Haven't put any significant detailed analysis in, but:
                    - I prefer a semi-auto platform
                    - I have a Glock 20 in 10mm
                    - Not a frequent enough practicer, but what shooting I do, this combo just seems to work for me (various bullet weights, primarily 200gr) without failures.
                    - Lots of caliber / cartridge options out there and smart folks may do analysis that leads to a different conclusion, but for me, I am perfectly satisfied with the 10mm in a semi-auto platform as my weapon to hide behind in the event of angry 4-legged critters that pop up when I'm doing activities other than hunting those same 4-legged critters.

                      Yes. from 230 ball acp to 255 HC Super. I probably wouldn't feed it a steady diet of thumpers without a spring swap but it runs great as is.

                        Impressive! Sounds like my G21 might need some added muscle now...

                          I have carried and shot Glock G20's in one form or another for over 25 years. My EDC is a Glock G20sf that shoots everything I put through it, from 165 grain practice loads to 180's that are on the warm side to 220 BB hard cast. My Gen 2 G20 has over 3000 rounds through it, my G20sf just over 6000 rounds and my G40MOS just over 500. I have even taken a caribou with the G20sf using 220 grain BB. I know, a little over kill using that heavy a round, but......

                            Nay! I hate it, don't get the mystique. Average of 30-40% additional cost over 45, 45 to include 9 are offered in price point loads, I can afford more ammo to train more often. Training trumps headstamp.
