Default Glock 29 or Glock 20

I want a 10mm glock but don't know which one I should get. I've never shot one and the gun ranges in my area does not have any to shoot. So I'm just going to have to buy one. Which should I get? Oh, it's not for concealed carry!!

I have a Glock 20. I love it. I've never shot a 29, but I typically don't like the compact versions.

Before you decide which one to buy, find out the availability of 10mm ammo at the LGS and what they carry - you might find it less costly to purchase online, or to load your own.

I have a 20 a 30. Although it's not the subcompact 10mm it's the exact dimension brother in 45. It's easily controllable/concealable. The 20 on the other hand is an absolute awesome gun. Holds 15 +1 of 10mm and just feels great in my opinion. It's an ideal gun for anything serious that may come up. Whether its a sidearm for hunting, defending your fort or even just getting looks at the range at the sound and brass your spiting out, you'll get attention. Seeing you said its not for conceal carry, I'd get a 20.

My vote is for the 29. Great size for conceal carry..you can use the G20 mags as well for range, and a second mag for carry!! Super accurate as well. SO, get the 29

I'm pretty sure I'm getting the 20 since that's what's most recommended. And being that's its not for concealed carry it makes more sense. I usually go one or twice a week to the range and never seen a 10mm there, so I wouldn't mind showing it off!!!

Your honestly the first one that's gone with the 29. Do you own one? I initially was leaning more toward the 29 but I kept hearing its too jumpy and the 20 is much easier to control.

I think the glock 20 is 1000000 time better then the glock 29 but a glock is a glock perfection

I love my G29. Great ccw and shoots sweet. Not much more recoil then my s&w 40 xd.

To me, the 10mm is at it's best in a full size pistol. There are so many options for the G20. I have two aftermarket barrels for mine. A 10 to 40 conversion barrel to shoot cheap 40 S&W ammo and lead reloads for practice and games, and an extended 10mm barrel that allows me to be legal for hunting in my state.

I personally would not be interested in a compact 10mm for ccw, but that is just my preference.

My G20 is the ultimate blaster for me.

If your intention is to shoot more at the range and for home defense, get the G20. I have a 29 and have no problem shooting it..even double taps. I reload as well so ammo is cheaper for me for practice. Of course I never carry any reloaded ammo for personal protection. I carry 10mm Auto 165 gr FTX® Critical Defense when carried as a personal defense weapon against two legged critters. As far as loss of FPS between the two guns, you only lose about 60FPS with the higher grain bullets, and about 80FPS with lighter bullets in the 29. So, only you can decide which you want to buy, but I would guess that if you shoot both guns, not together, but on separate days, you will not notice any difference between the two guns. If your interests venture into hunting, you can buy a 4.48 inch extended barrel for the G29 with a fully supported chamber from Storm Lake ($175) that is essentially the stock length of the G20 barrel (4.6 inch). That barrel, together with a 22-24 lb recoil spring, will handle full power 10mm rounds for hunting such as SwampFox's 200gr XTP JHP at 1325 fps, 780 ft-lbs energy or 220gr Hard Cast bullets from Buffalo Bore. So get one and go blast some hogs.
