Ok, I am a glock fan boy. Now that is has been said. I like the .357 Mags I have 2 of them. But If it is for home defence and carry I would go with a glock hands down. Revolvers are great they don't jam and that stuff. But a glock holds way more round and you can find the ammo you want to do whatever it is you want for it to do. Just saying!

Oh me, oh my. The question. I have an old AO 10mm 1911. It is a big handgun. It weighs 1 pound more than my 1911 .45acp. The weak point is the barrel bushing, they crack. The glock won't suffer from this issue, but it is still a beater on the gun w/ full power charges. I shoot 180 gr cast FP and 175gr SWC. I do have some 180gr JSP for hunting, but they fair no better than the cast lead. The .357 M19-4 w/ a 6" barrel is lighter and easier to shoot. The 10mm tends to roll right and high. The .357 stays on target, it does not come close to the cycle speed of the 10mm, but that is how life goes.

I ended up laying away a used Dan Wesson .357 Magnum with a 8" barell.

I need to git 'ma hands on some 180 grain hardcast lead bullets fer kill'n Hogs.

I am thinking next year of buying a Glock 20 10MM and/or possibly a Kahr .45 ACP as well as a Marlin .357 Magnum lever action rifle and either a Stooger or Century Arms 12 gauge Coach gun.

Too bad Glock didn't build a Practical/Tactical model of the 10MM the way they did the .40 S&W or even a 6" Longslide.

Thanks to all of Yall.

UPDATE:

Eventually I want to get a 4" & 12" Barell for the Dan Wesson.

Well, at least you got the Dan Wesson. I think you will find the versatility of it very useful and appropriate for most of your uses.

Just wanted to add something to this thread, as I came across it during a Google search.

There are recently been a few "Kabooms" with Glock 29 stock barrels using Swampfox 10mm fullhouse ammunition (200gr. XTP variety). You can read about it on the Glocktalk forum. I understand that Swampfox gunworks and Glock are trying to get to the bottom of the issue, but as for now, Swampfox now issues fullhouse 10mm ammo in labelings noting "supported" and "non-supported" barrels. It should be mentioned that Glock factory barrels are "non-supported," and are no longer recommended for max velocity 10mm loads that Swampfox loads for. Swampfox offers loads specifically tailored for the Glock 29 (a bit less powerful, but still offering over 600 foot-pounds of energy).

Glock claims as long as SAMMI pressures are not exceeded the barrels are safe.

UPDATE:

Just traded a friend of mine the 10MM Glock for a .357 Magnum 4 inch barelled revolver.

I now have 2 .357 Magnums.

Will not hunt Boar/Gator this year but will return to FLA. next year.
