Fantastic gun. It is my edc. Probably not the best pick for a first glock. It is not a gun for beginners.

No stranger to shooting I'm just new to the glock brand and looking for feedback I'm excited to pick it up and shoot it with 10mm rounds and .40 rounds to see which I like better what's a good round to feed it

.40 isn't gonna work unless you picked up a second barrel. Comparing .40 to 10mm is like .22 lr to .22 s.
I've yet to find an ammo it won't run besides lead of course. Grab the cheapest you can find for punching paper. For carry I recommend a good frangible ammo.

I bought one last year. I changed the trigger connector and springs before shooting it. I had to make a slight adjustment to the rear sight. The 10mm is a great cartridge. Depending on how much you shoot, you may want to reload or save your brass and have it reloaded. There are video's on youtube that will give a lot of info and show how to disassemble/reassemble a Glock. There is a Glock sub forum. There are opinions on both sides about Glocks. Some love them others hate them. The fact that Law Enforcement used them as the duty weapon says a lot. They are reliable.

Don't shoot 40 S&W through your 10 mm barrel as the cartridge will be held by the extractor and could break the extractor.

He was either lying or confused or both. You will need a second barrel for .40, might be worth it .40 is usually easier to find than 10mm but these days everything is hit or miss.

Do Want! I suggest you test it on a bear, just staple a target on his forehead.

The Glock 20 is a pretty cool gun. 15rds of high capacity 10mm goodness. Great woods/camping gun. But 10mm is a caliber you have to understand in order for it to be a reasonable choice.

You probably made a bad choice if: You're going to go down to your LGS, buy some basic (Fed Am-Eagle) range rounds and JHPs, and treat it like any other range/carry gun. That's just not where it excels. And about 90% of factory ammunition out there is no different from your basic 40sw...except you get the privilege of paying an extra 50+% for every pull of the trigger, because it's "technically" 10mm...which is less common and considerably more expensive.

You probably chose well if: This is destined to be a woods gun, or you at least have a solid grasp on the caliber in question. 10mm is a caliber with tremendous potential. But it can only be unleashed if reloading or buying from the right sources (Buffalo Bore, DoubleTap).

I don't think it's a great carry choice for most folks, but that depends greatly on your environment. It can be a fun gun for plinking, woods carry, or even longer range fodder. Just don't make the mistake (that many make) of buying a 10mm, paying 10mm prices, and shooting ammunition that is literally nothing more than 40sw through it. Because in that case, you're just pissing $$ away, and you should have bought a 40sw.
