I have a Glock 20 compensated. I pour my own 180 grain hollow points. This weapon is just fantastic. I also have a 9mm 92f and a 357 mag. The glock is the one I like the best. My kids even shoot it!!! You can't go wrong with a Glock.
I live out in the delta swamps and ive killed 14 ft crocs with my 10mm. Its the meanestbaddest they is. 40s and 45 acp are for sissies and girly men, my buddy had a 45, i shot iat, thought it sucked and tossed it in the swamp, and said... go get a real gun you coward, and then i threw him in the swamp h
KaBoom! Glock's unsupported barrel for a cartridge is a major problem, especially when this cartridge can generate upwards to 37500psi MAP. I have owned two G20. First G20 (Gen2) ended with a cracked frame and damaged magazine after a KBM! catastrophic failure event. Glock does not seem to like to admit fault and is not particularly interested in hearing about it and gave me the run-around for 6 months. They even threatened to sue for defamation if I tarnished Glock's reputation! Four years later I did purchased a G20 gen3 and installed a KKM barrel before a shot was ever shot through it.
I've just purchased the G20 SF recently, and now just waiting until the 10 day waiting period is over. However just a few weeks ago I went down to the range with one of my buddy, and rented the G20 full size not SF. I don't no what is all the fuss about the excessive recoil like they were saying, after putting about 50 rounds down range I fell in love with this gun. As for recoil it's no more than like shooting a 45acp in my opinion, felt very similar to shooting a 45 Springfield XD.
I've owned my Glock 20 for close to 20 years and and would consider it an excellent survival weapon, it's not a target pistol. I use my Olympic Hammerli or Benelli target pistols instead. I'm a small person, 5' 6" 190 pounds with small hands. Other smaller calibers may be easier to shoot, but by definition of the caliber, lower energy, lower mass, lower stopping power. Although I don't shoot it often, I'm quite comfortable with it. The secret to my managing this weapon is 1) a firm two hand grip, 2) recognize it has a kick, but have a "mind set" even in combat to ignore the recoil and report, 3) let the weight of the weapon bring it back to firing position, don't try to physically whip it back into position, as one can over compensate like oversteering a car, 4) focus on placing the shot well and forget the noise, recoil and all the negative things people will say about the Glock 10 mm!
I don't know why the FBI solicited the development of the 10mm auto cartridge only to back out later because some smaller and more sensitive FBI agents were afraid of it.I shoot 22lr,22mag,38 special,357 mag,9mm luger,357sig,9x25 dillon,40 S&W,10mm,44 mag,454 casull and 500 mag.I'm 6' 225 lbs,not a titan,i'm a kinda old guy,58.None of these things make me recoil sensitive to a moderate cartridge like the 10mm.If you're afraid of it the Glock 20c has a two slit compensated front.Glocks don't hurt when they are fired.They have a wide polymer grip that distributes recoil over a wide area of the hand.If you can fire a 9mm,you can fire a 10mm.It really isn't that ferocious.You can always bragg that you're tougher than an FBI agent if you can shoot it and not be scared off.The 40 S&W is the child of the 10mm.To appease the sensitivites of the FBI the 10mm case was shortened,less powder put in and presto the 40 short and weak.The G20 is the gun to have on you if you're life is in dang...[Read More]
I have carried a Glock 20 in the wilderness for 6 years. It is the most firepower in the smallest package. In the very wet forests of the Northwest the critters are very large and the streams very wide. I like the hitting power of the 10mm. After the third hour on the trail I like the size and lightweight features of the Glocks. I have sold my heavy .44's and don't miss lugging them around. I just picked up a Glock 29 and it is even smaller, and the mags from my G20 will work in the G29, an added bonus. Both of my Glocks were police trade in's and the price was 1/3 the price of new. I don't go for pretty just durability. Also, 3 times a year I shoot the pistol and know instinctly where my guns hit at 25 yards.
I just purchased the Glock 20 SF and I was concerned about the recoil until I shot it. What is all the fuss about, it barely recoils. I love this gun, I wish I carried it when I was in law enforcement. Trust me, don't buy a 40, buy a 10mm G20 SF and get Double Tap ammo for it. You will love this gun. Everyone I have shown it to and shot it, loves it.
Mine went KaBoom. My Glock was 3 months old and I was shooting new factory ammo. Glock was not help. Good Luck.
I own a glock 20 and have fired massive amounts of 10mm from all manufacturers" Out off the same stock glock" Contrary to popular belief the full house 10 mm from a glock 20 doesn't recoil as much as an officers .45acp . The flash is worse but not recoil. If you can get use to the trigger and polymer pistols in general the glock 20 is a combination of power dependability and accuracy that is hard to beat. I am 5 foot 11 and weigh 220 lbs the g20 conceals under an untucked over shirt when worn strong side. without a blazer or this shirt I can't imagine being able to hide it.
I have never owned a Glock until the Model 20 in 10 MM. I fired it right out of the box using 180 gr. JHP Hornady's and it shot an excellent group at 15 yards. Stripped it down and cleaned it for round two now. Like most of the literature I have read the recoil is manageable and does seem to be more of a back and forth motion with less muzzle flip than my .45. The construction looks very strong and durable. Typical Glock I guess but I love it so far.
