Default Glock 29SF- good for concealed carry?

I'm a big fan of Glocks, I've carried a Glock 26 as my EDC, but I think if like to carry a larger caliber on occasion. So my question is, is the 10mm a good idea for a carry round? I've heard of people who used 10mm and got prison time because the bullet over penetrated or something.

You have heard!! If your buying carry ammo from a small boutique ammo company you can get some hot ammo and in bullet designs not mean for personal defense. A 125gr 357 mag can get along at 1500fps. My 40sw ammo at 155gr gd and 1302fps in a 4" barrel is hotter than most 10mm production big boy company ammo out there Look at the ammo you want to carry and compare to others. fed, 180gr hy shok is 1080fps !! corbon 150gr is 1326. Pick a ammo brand for your concerns proof it in your pistol and carry away. If I had a 29sf I would have no worry about CC it. Just don't carry a hardcast bullet. Some bullets when lighter weight and driven hard expand more and penetrate less . Go over to you tube and check out some gel test . Underwoods 135gr nosler hp at 1600fps only goes 10" thru fbi gel but expans to almost .800.

It has also been reported that of all the police departments that keep hit/miss records for officer involved shootings, the absolute best percentage of hits for shots fired in a confrontation is 49%. Forget the over-penetration stuff and buy what you can shoot accurately. Then go out and practice with it... a lot.

Ok, thanks. I'll now be carrying either a Glock 19 or a Glock 29SF Glock 30s. Which one depends on the season and my plans for the day.
