    Sorry haven't heard about the G29. I own a Glock 35 and I love it.

    I do not have the 29 but I have shot it. It's like a 40 on steroids and is kinda of a middle ground between a 40 and a 45. I prefer the 45 but that's me. But my buddy who has one loves it.

    Um... NO.


    10MM is superior to 45 in all aspects.

    I assume the downside is ammo cost?

    I would read this if I were you. I gave me a new perspective.

    Impressive. I'm convinced.
    Might be time to upgrade.

    And http://www.underwoodammo.com/10mmauto.aspx Has a pretty good selection from XTP to nosler to golden saber configurations and weights they use in their factory ammo.

    They load to fullhouse pressure

    And price for per 50rds is comparable to alot of other companies per 25rds

    And it's expensive but if you're really hung up on the 230gr weight's of the .45

    Double Tap makes both 230gr Equalizer 135gr. JHP over a 95gr. lead ball http://www.doubletapammo.com/php/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=21_25&products_id=596

    Ballistics : 1040fps/ 553 ft./lbs. - Glock 20
    Glock 29 - 1000fps





    And 230gr Hardcast that can take down a grizzly some say 230gr Wide Flat Nose Gas Check Hardcast http://www.doubletapammo.com/php/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=21_25&products_id=158

    Ballistics : 1120fps/ 641 ft./lbs. - Glock 20
    1008fps / 519 ft lbs 100yds Glock 20
    Glock 29 - 1075fps

    My G29 (when I had it) has a ZEV glockworx trigger, 22 lb stainless captured recoil spring setup. I also upgraded to a KKM match grade barrel. I originally wanted it for carry but its really too big for me, so I stuck with my G33. It was a very fun shooter, and even with full house Swampfox and Double tap factory ammo wasn't too much to handle.

    If you don't mind a little thread jacking, (sorry op), how many rounds have you purchased from them? Have you had any failure to fires? Have you chrono'd any of their loads?

    Ive fired atleast 500 of various calibers never had any failures .. I've never chrono'd anything myself but you can certainly go on youtube and check some underwood speeds . I love the stuff and the guy that owns underwood is a really nice guy . Located in Ohio
