willfully armed, you make a great point and difficult to say no to the 10mm.

what am i going to do with my 11.45 mm 1911?
do they make a conversion?


BTenn - sounds like you have to buy a Glock 20 or 29 now.
And some of that special 1,500 fps Georgia Arms Speer Unicore defensive loads.

It sounds like if your shot connects, you won't have to pull the trigger twice.

BTen,

If you are not looking at the 1911 style pistols which seemingly you are not! I would first look at the Sigs and Springfield XDs. My preference for a 45 on the street is the Sig Model 220. 45 Cal.

Gloves- you'd have to get a new slide in 10mm... then you might as well buy a complete gun.

I had a a Kimber Stainless Target II 10mm. Should've never got rid of it.

My only 10mm is the g20. Easy to hold minute of badguy at 100 yards.

I will be the first to admit that the .40 is a more powerful round than the awesome .45 (correct me if i'm wrong)

Here are the stats i'm using.

.45 ACP . . .230 . . FMJ . . 405 ft/lbs. (11.2% wider than the .40 - slightly bigger hole)
10 mm . . . .180 . . FMJ . . 425 ft/lbs.
.40 S&W . . 165 . . FMJ . . 470 ft/lbs. (WINNER)

.45 ACP looses. It's a fatter round that's best in a single stack.

I say keep your G 22 and get some +P hollow point ammo.
I missed this last night but there's just no way the .40S&W can be claimed to be more powerful than the 10mm. Behind the same bullet design a lot more powder can be stuffed in the longer case. And heavier bullets than practical in the 40 can be used in the 10mm. Any great load in the .40 can be topped by an even greater load in the 10mm. And to some degree this is true of the 40 vs. 45ACP too. A hot .45 is gonna do more damage.

Still, forgetting hunting, the 40S&W can be the basis of a fine carry/CCW gun. Plenty of power, lots of rounds in a full size or compact model and quite concealable in a subcompact. I'm becoming more and more impressed with the used Glock G27 I bought a few weeks ago. It conceals well with the stock magazine but you can drop a magazine sleeve on a 13 or 15rd mag and now have basically a G23 or G22 (including full size grip) with just a mag change. Which makes for a very flexible gun! I prefer having two guns but you don't lose much with a single baby Glock that also accepts a full size mag.

So your saying the 10mm is more practical and cost efficient than .45 ACP?, and that the ammo is always available? I'm in MS and I really dont know anyone w a 10mm... Kinda would be nice to know I had one of a kind lol if ammo was always readily available.

10mm is a powerful round on par or in many cases more powerful than a 357 mag. That being said it is much like the 41 mag, it has a small devoted following but no real market.

Anything the 41 mag could be used for the very popular 44 mag and 357 mag could do. A 45acp or 40 s&w can fill the defense roll as well or better than a 10mm with less recoil.

I think that's an excellent point, the 10mm and 41 Magnum are very similar in caliber and power. But finding good ammo, at least locally, will be more difficult than their more popular siblings. This doesn't mean either is bad - in fact either one (10mm or 41 Magnum ) is almost perfect when you want power and flat trajectory - just not as popular.
