What STOCK 10mm handgun would you get? Nothing customized. Off the shelf guns only.

Here are the stipulations--

1. Full size
2. Handgun

That's it!!


Looking at the Glock 20, but haven't convinced myself I want to go with Glock. Might prefer a 1911 since that's what I'm used to carrying. I Haven't written glock off, but haven't fully decided on one either. I like the idea of 15 + 1 of 10mm while hunting in bear country, but other than that, I'm okay with two mags of personal defense ammo and a 1911. I don't want long slides cause it will be used for CC as well as open carry. Don't want compacts or sub compacts because I want the full benefit of the barrel length. Otherwise, I'd just go with a 40 and not waste the potential of the 10mm.

What would you do??

I went longslide. I figured I'd give the 10mm every chance to be all it could be. Otherwise, I'd carry a .40 S&W.

I'm no help to you.

I've been very pleased with a Kimber Target II 10mm for a couple of years and about 1400 rounds. Like most Kimbers, the extractor needed some tuning when it was new, but it's been very reliable since then. I did replace the barrel bushing with an EGW custom bushing and it's not too far behind my Nighthawk longslide 10mm in the accuracy department. There are other good 10mm 1911s out there, but for the money Kimber serves me well.

Sorry Seminole, but I will NEVER own a Kimber again. Owned 2 of them, and there is no way on God's green earth I would put my life on the line with either one of them. Worked and worked on them, and could NOT get them to quit failing. Every fail in the book happened multiple times on each gun. Couldn't get 100 rounds without a failure. The name "Kimber" makes me shudder every time I hear it.

I admit, I did contemplate the Glock 40 (long slide) for a bit, but decided against it pretty quickly when I knew I would be using this gun for CC and open carry. The open carry is easy. But trying to CC a long slide doesn't work to well for me.

Racksmasher, what makes you say the Glock is the ford pinto compared to the 1911? I wouldn't put it that far behind in accuracy, or dependability, and those are what really matter. Now if you are talking about aesthetics, then yeah, there is NO WAY anyone will ever convince me that a Glock looks good. They don't. They just, don't.

Been looking at some 1911 stainless 10mm handguns today. Colt Delta Elite seems to be everywhere. The the Remington shows up now and then. Dan Wesson and Sig show up here and there. You guys ever shoot any of these in the 10mm platform? I know it's a long shot, but thought I'd ask.

I was spoiled by my Springfield TRP in 45ACP. I'm about to just go back to it, and call it good. That gun was FLAWLESS.

I had a Blue Colt Delta back around 92 kept it a year or so. Sold it to pay college tuition.

It is the next gun on my list once I get a Colt Competition in 9mm.

It is like shooting a 357 mag in a 1911

Pretty bad ass.
