    With all this mention of 10mm, I'm curious what WMD uses in that caliber. Lets see em! :wavey:
     
  2. I swear I've posted pics of this gun 100 times. :)

    My dad also has a G20. They are both great guns.

    Is Glock the only manufacturer of a 10mm semi-auto? How pricey is the ammo?

    I personally would buy 11ty other things before I even considered a 10mm... But if that's what you're set on, then I think a Glock 20 would be a good platform.

    I've decided my first handgun will be a HK P7 PSP. :wiggle: I've just been curious about a 10mm since everyone talks about it like it's God's gift to pistol cartridges.

    G29 also, looking to add a 2nd 10mm to the stable, might go with something of the 1911 variety with the 2nd one.

    How does the price of ammo compare to 9mm or .45ACP?
     
  10. The ammo's not that terrible. Sure, it's more than other pistol cartridges, but nobody ever said shooting was a cheap sport. I can get 50 rounds of HSM locally for $16. You'll save a lot if you reload, as other commercial ammo is pretty expensive.

    about $90 for 100 rounds of good ammo for 10mm. About $170 for 500 rounds of good ammo for 40S&W (same bullet, shorter case).


    talking carry/duty stuff, not plinking.
     
  12. Lots of 10mm people use DT's Gold Dot and Nosler loads for ccw. They are 29.95 per 50. I really find the whole "the ammo costs too much" argument silly. If people were really just concerned with ammo price, we'd all be shooting .22lr.

    I bought a .22LR for that very reason -- cheap range fun.

    Thats like saying if gasoline prices mattered we'd all be riding bicycles. Its a scale, not just yes or no. You can shoot a lot more 9mm for the same money than 10mm. That may or may not matter to you.

    EAA also makes a witness (cz clone) in 10mm.

    1911's have never been very good in anything other than .45ACP.

    Kimber also makes some 10mm versions fwiw.


    When I join 10mm crew, it'll be with a 1911.

    Dude with a 10mm you don't even need a gun. Just take the brass and throw it at things. The sheer force and shock of a 10mm bullet could take down a grizzly bear.

    Question: what is the relationship between caliber and diameter? It seems like 1mm = 5 caliber, but I honestly have no idea.

    And why are 22mm rounds measured according to length instead of diameter?

    caliber = .inches
    mm = mm
    so .40 (in) = 10mm

    .22 = almost 1/4 diameter
