    10mm is a reloaders dream. Load it lower power for plinking, gaming etc. or load it up for hunting, or as a back up pistol in dangerous game country. It wouldn’t be a choice for me however if I didn’t reload for it.

    This. I bought a XDM 10mm just for fun; I have no real use for it. I can load FBI lite if I want, or full power, just by changing powders. It's just a fun thing.

    Note: 10mm is far snappier recoil in a 1911 than it is in the XDM.

    Always wanted a shiny Colt Delta Elite in 10mm - was totally bummed when I heard 10mm was tearing those guns up (but that was hearsay pre-Internet world)

    Trajectory rocks if you like longer range pistol shooting on steel.

    Totally agree that the G20 platform is great especially if you play with G19 or G17s - all is the same...just bigger.

    I have a buddy who treks around the Appalachian Trail and carry's a G20 for bears.
    Glocks are functional tools and nothing else, hence they have no soul - Rob S.

    In one of my few nods to Boomer-ism, I carry a 10mm 1911 in a shoulder holster as my 'woods gun'. Climbing into or out of a stand, doing work, ducking through bush, etc, I prefer carrying the backup underneath my coat or sweatshirt to having it on my waist. 10mm in semi-auto is probably the most suitable for both two legged and four legged predators; should the need arise. That said, it is snappy, heavy, etc. It's a caliber worth owning IMO.

    I recently came into the 10MM “family” by purchasing a reloading guys collection of 10MM handguns, well at least some. A basket case Colt Delta Elite Gen 1, S&W 1086 3rd Gen & two Glock 20s ( one heavily modified, 2nd box stock never shot) The only reason this collection was sold is guy wanted to reduce his ”footprint” in his garage, he literally had no space for “regular” tools etc that one would use a garage for, every square ft was occupied by something to do with reloading ammo. The only reason I got into 10mm was my buddy’s Springfield 1911 in 10MM that he insisted I try. Love at 1st mag! The Delta will go off to a 1911 Smith not sure which, the modded G20 was sold quickly as it was a pure comp gun with porting etc etc. the stock G20 is staying and the 1086 stays as the guy had 18 loaded mags for it! My real love is the Delta with a busted plunger tube, thumbsafety and so so grip safety. They guy was great at reloading rifle ammo but ‘SMithing and pistol ammo were not his main claim to range fame! Luckily he only did minor things to the Delta not cutting or grinding, the modded G20 was another story. I regret that I missed the S&W 610 that was disassembled by his deceased ‘ Smith & never repaired or reassembled.
