The topic of 10mm came up in a different thread, and I posted my TRP there, but realised, why not just start a thread on 10mm? 45 Colt is my favorite, but 10mm is right up there. From what I've heard / read, it seems like it is one of those that ya either love it or hate it.

I got this Springfield TRP with a 6" slide because I plan on hunting with it, and running heavy loads with it. Working with 220gr hardcast now, but will probably drop back to 200gr after I shoot up all these 220's. Had to change out the recoil spring to a 24 pound spring. Why it came stock with an 18 pound spring, I'll never know. Once I did this, it was very enjoyable to shoot.

I plan on bear hunting with it next fall, and would love to take a deer with it. We'll see...

Holster is a Milt Sparks and is made from horsehide with shark trim. Had it made with an FBI cant so it can be used for CC as well as open carry. I can't say enough good things about this holster. It's my second one from Milt Sparks for a 1911 platform. Absolutely flawless holsters in my opinion.

What 10mm do you have, and what critters have you taken with it?

I have a Glock G40 and have killed deer, hogs, and a plethora of raccoons with it. Pretty much my bedside gun only now. Great caliber for deer/hogs 100ish pounds and under.

I have a G20. It?s become my favorite everyday gun. It?s at my bedside, in my car when I go to work, and on my side when I am outdoors. To me Glocks aren?t pretty and don?t stir the mind like a custom sixgun but they just work. It?s dispatched pest and taken deer. Its there for that ?in case? moment I hope never comes. In a Glock the 10mm offers a balance of capacity and power that?s hard to beat.

I have a G20, I put in a Zev trigger and had them do the stippling and remove the finger grooves. I also put in a KKM bbl. with a 20lb recoil spring and had the slide milled out for a Trijicon RMR. When I carry it, it's usually in a Blackhawk Serpa holster or Diamond D's Alaskan Guide rig. Loads I use, Underwoods 200 gr XTP, and also a handload 12.4 gr. AA#9 under a 200gr. JHP. While it doesn't look as good as my single actions...it does have a good round count and it's light. I'd include a picture but I'm new and haven't figured it out yet. I haven't shot anything but paper and steel up till now. The Springfield TRP looks awesome! They also have that now ready to go with optics. And with my aging eyes, I'm definitely leaning more and more towards optics.

Welcome to the forum. I have never been a fan of optics on a 1911. Went with the adjustable night sights, and they work well for me.

I almost tried a Glock as a couple buddies have them and like them. But as soon as I found out Springfield had finally come out with their 10mm, my decision was made. They said it took them so long cause they couldn't get a steel that wouldn't stretch after thousands of rounds with the 10mm pressures. They didn't just take a .45 TRP frame and fit it to the 10mm mag and barrel. The entire gun was designed around the 10mm, except for that ridiculously weak 18# recoil spring. Still not sure why they did that, but the rest of the gun is awesome.

I've been glad I waited!!

Mine is a very simple GP100 converted by Clements. Waiting for the 610 4 inch to ship.

Got a Glock 40 with DeltaPoint Pro. Gun has been modified with grip reduction and other embellishments. Just received the reintroduced S&W 610. Mounted an UltraDot L/T and I really like this revolver. Shoots good and I don't have to chase brass all over the range.
