10mm is for EXPERIENCED PISTOLEERS. Much like a .357 or .44 magnum.
Mine will penetrate a semi-truck's door & go well into the metal of the passenger door with JHP's.
So one needs to be VERY careful of their backstop when firing this weapon. The Glock 20 is my CCW of choice.
Loaded with Glaser Safety Slugs, its the perfect home defense pistol for me.
Mind you, I'm also a 6'3" freight train...so the recoil doesn't feel that bad to me, either.
(never really thought it was bad anyway, way less than a .357 or .44, just a bit more than a .40-Short & Wimpy)
9mm is a starting caliber for anyone to train with, much like a .38 Special.
It was basically designed to replace & mimic the .38's ballistic properties, but in a semi-auto hi-capacity package.
It is definitely the suggested training weapon for many. A Glock 17/19/etc won't do you wrong there.
Get the 33-round mags while they're still available
So, if you get the chance to grab a sweet deal on a Glock 20, grab it & use it sparingly...
until you can get a 9mm and train heavily (& cheaply) with it. Even my wife flinches when the 10mm goes BOOM...
and she's an old jarhead with TONS of experience firing weapons.
One other thing...see that avatar pic I have? That's one of three extremely high capacity 9mm pistols I own.
Two Calico Liberty III pistols...and I have a Tec-9 that's awaiting my order of GunKote...
If you are gonna use 9mm as a home defense gun, at least have 50-100 rounds Per Mag to use.
I believe in the "Fill the hallway full of lead" method of home defense when using 9mm.
If anyone is still breathing after three-four 100-rd Calico mags, the wife can go finish them off with her Taurus 24/7 C
