I have a glock 29. I absolutely love it. 10 powerful rounds in a compact pistol.

I wanted A 10mm but ran into the same problem. Only affordable option was Glock which does offer a 6" barrel. Talked to two FTF members who had just bought Glock 10s n they were not as accurate as they had hoped. I don't know "what" their expectations were but I was glad to have run into honest men.

Used Colts are expensive and if you are going to spend the $$$, I would look at Dan Wesson.

Saw video of gent w EAA n 14 lb springs - he tried to install 22, 20, even 18 lb Wolf springs but the gun went "Smuckers"...

I would pay what ever it took to avoid a Glock or an EAA. I believe people can learn to handle a Glock under normal circumstances. But if someone tries to disarm a Glock owner the gun is going off. It is instinctive to clench in an attempt to hang on the gun. When you clench that bugger hook is going to squeeze the trigger. The Glock trigger pull is just to light for any DA only pistol. EAA has some happy owners and a lot of damaged guns. I just don't trust EAA.

Although I will never buy another glock "for many reasons". But doesn't every gun fire when the trigger is pulled? :Confused:

Frames and barrel bushings. The 1911 is not designed for 10mm. Going from Subsonic to supersonic is a big deal.

Frame cracking did occur, though it's comparatively rare.
Pretty good info:

Same as above

My 1911 10mm AO is 1/2 pound heavier then their .45acp.

Still have the issues of the barrel bushing, even if the frame is heavier. W/ my Thompson/AO 1911 you can figure 2000..3000 rounds max before the bushing cracks. The last one from AO has faired better, but having a spare is a VG idea.

OMG, the Glock bashing is in full swing isn't it? I carried steel framed Smiths for years 4506 then 1006. Thos are a chunk of steel to lug around. I carried striker fired pistols for years (plain clothes and off duty) Never had a negligent discharge. I now carry a G-20C. I probably have more trigger time than most, but I do not fear the ND. Proper training and common sense will prevail.

Underwood ammo doesn't recommend full power 10 mm in ramp less guns. If not full power might as well buy a 40.

I think I got nearly a grand in the Glock,with mods.Ammo ain't cheap neither,at least .40 a bullet the way I buy(I don't reload).Keep lookin,something might pop up.
