at the distance you'd be most likely to use it, the 10mm would probably have a substantial over-penetration problem, not to mention the amount of practice it may take to shoot that heffer of a round proficiently.

10mm

The round and the weapon have NEVER proven to be that successful a carry or defensive handgun. As Browning Boy mentioned... over penetration of the round at "converstional distances" has been a major problem. The problem is that because of the tremendous "push and recoil" of the weapon....second and third hits are very difficult to accomplish consistently. Although the weapon and round are fun to shoot, unless you have a ton of time to devote to dry practice and an unlimited bank account to afford the ammo.....find another more suitable weapon for carry... Good Luck

The 10 mm works fine for carry - use light for caliber bullets. If you reload and are like me and think a good shoot is a good shoot and are not scared of reloads for self-defense then load some moderate 10 mm reloads. Where I live I want over penetration but in public there is self defense ammunition that woulod work fine. Here is a "low penetrating" round from double tap 135 grain Nosler http://www.doubletapammo.com/php/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=45

I love Glock's, in all sizes. The 29 and 30 are probably my favorites. But keep in mind, I believe it is in Airzona, there is a man still in prison because he used "a weapon stronger than even the police have" in self defense.

www.haroldfishdefense.org there is his link

Nevermind, they finally let him out of jail.

This case was not about the 10mm it was about self-defense and the scope of evidence and jury instructions. If it was about the firearm it was then as much about the
"hollowpoint bullets" so don't carry hollowpoints. I don't.

You're probably stuck with those restictions in California , but in Idaho we (and the cops) carry hollowpoints. The point is to stop the bad guy without overpenetation. Frag. self defense ammo costs a fortune and I believe some of it underpenetrates. I also shoot only handloads. I know several local officers and the prosecuter and it's a non-issue here. Most of my guns have never fired factory ammo. They might blow up in my face!;) But you gotta do what ya gotta do.

You can and will be charged just as heavily for carrying FMJ's because they over penetrate and basically mame unless a direct head or heart shot. Carrying FMJ ammo is reckless.

10mm

I agree with rangeguy...I jumped on the 10mm with both feets when the Delta Elite came out. I am large and have been shooting .44s and .45s for years, but Never managed a three shot group on the range. It was always a 3 shot "string". And forget a "Mozambique". I tried hard and shot several boxes of ammo trying to learn to control it. When I gave up and went back to my Combat Commander .45acp it was like "I done died and gone to heaven."

No law against hollow points here in kalifornia. I agree that it is not a good idea to over-penetrate around innocent people. I live in a place where there is no no one nearby that I could hit so I load non-expanding bullets with the biggest meplat. I was just making a point that the defendant was in as much trouble for his 10mm as he was for his hollow point bullets which were both non-issues as the case turned on jury instructions and the exclusion of evidence not on the 10mm or the hollow points. Bad judge at the root of it.

Just an old dinosaurs opinion but after my first choice 45ACP the 10 MM is my second choice. No matter what gun you have you need to be able to handle it and you need to be aware of your surroundings. You can do a through and through with most any good self defense gun so shot placement is is paramount and knowledge of what or who behind your target is equally important. If you can handle the gun and are confident in your marksmanship go for it.

Unlike most threads here at Shooters Forum, many of the responses to this thread are fraught with error and conjecture. :mad:

The 10mm is a great gun I had two, the Glock 20 and the 29. They are a great performing round with a whole lot of stopping power, it is the gun that the DEA has adopted, for that reason. Although most factory loads have been substantualy loaded down now, most are just a little hotter than a 40 S&W. If you are worried about over penatration get some hollow points, I dont know if they are still made but PMC Starfires work good. Corbon makes some good hot loads if you want the full 10mm effect.

I like my 10mm. I mostly use it camping, as it's large for concealed carry (for me). If a person would consider a 357 or 44 for concealed carry, I don't see why they wouldn't consider a 10mm auto. I see the main difference(s) there being platform preference.

Great if you want to shoot someone through glass or a car door.

I own a 1076 and would never consider CCWing it. Too big and too heavy. It would make a fine camping sidearm though. :)
