    Part of me just wants to own a 10mm, plus being able to carry a nuclear weapon is :coold:

    MG has one and it's a blast to shoot. He bought it so he could have a carry gun and something to shoot bears with in the mountains should we happen upon them.
     
  4. It's a lot of fun to shoot. I swear, the felt recoil from it is less than the felt recoil from something like a G26 or G27. It's a slower-push style recoil more like a .45 has. The 9mm and .40 have much snappier recoils, even though they run at considerably lower pressures than the 10mm. The ammo cost is obviously more than a 9mm or .40, but it's no worse than .45 costs.

    I want one in the worst way. I was at the shop a few weeks back ready to buy and they supposedly had 1 in stock but couldn't locate it. Kinda glad I didn't buy it cause the following weekend my clutch exploded. Couple weeks and I'll be ready to go back and get it.

    I want it for the off chance of running into bear when I am out biking. The 19 I currently carry just doesn't make me feel good about that possibility.

    I wouldn't unless you reloaded.

    Really? I think its about .40 a round right now for cheap stuff, is .45 really up that high per round too now for factory?

    For 10mm I would want a full size gun. It can't be pleasant to shoot in a compact or subcompact.

    Have you seen that double tap ammo that got 19" of penetration :eek3:
     
  9. I promise you, it's not bad at all to shoot. Even shooting Double Tap's crazy 135gr load, it's quite manageable. If you ever get a chance to shoot one, do it. I was terrified of firing it initially, I thought it would be painful, but after the first couple of shots I was amazed.
     
  10. Which one was that? I've shot the 135gr Nosler load and the 230gr hardcast load.

    No but I'll check it now. Still would feel better with an "accepted" bear caliber.

    Oh that was 10mm :o
    135gr JHP @ 1600fps - 11.0" / .70" frag nasty
    155gr Gold Dot JHP @ 1475fps - 13.5" / .88"
    165gr Gold Dot JHP @ 1400fps - 14.25" / 1.02"
    165gr Golden Saber JHP @ 1425fps - 14.75" / .82"
    180gr Golden Saber JHP @ 1330fps - 16.0" / .85"
    180gr XTP @ 1350fps – 17.25” / .77”
    180gr Gold Dot JHP @ 1300fps - 15.25" / .96"
    200gr XTP @ 1250fps - 19.5" / .72"
    230gr Equalizer @ 1040fps - 11.0" and 17.0" / .62" and .40"
     
  13. Places like ammoman have FMJ 10mm stuff (out of stock) listed @ $199/500. They have FMJ .40 listed @ like $170. They have FMJ .45 listed at $230/500.
     
  14. Absoultely, as far as that goes, if I plan on seeing bears I'd take something like a shotgun with slugs, but if you're just poking around in the hills, the 10mm loaded with heavier bullets will stop most small-medium sized bears.

    I was going to say. They did have a 20 in the case when I was there. Almost left with that but it'd be a little harder to conceal in biking attire. :greddy:

    Yeah most of the bears that I've seen while biking or seen friend shoot were not much bigger than a large dog. It's a real off chance that I would see one but better safe than sorry. I've thought about a large revolver but that would just be a total PITA to carry.

    Plus nothing beats a Glock's resistance to perspiration.

    One store has in stock locally but says I cant get the LEO disocunt because you have to be active duty, even though I ordered a glock 27 through another one without being active duty :hsugh:
