Glock a good decision??

Ok so I've decided to break down and buy a semi auto pistol. I am looking at the full size glock 20 in 10mm. I have 27 guns and no semi auto pistols. I'm a total novice with these so if you have input that's great. Uses are for non carry, non self protective but solely gun club, truck pistol and hopefully hunting something with it.

Its a hot round but the Glock handles it well. Recoil tends to be more straight back. I would pick a different caliber BUT since you mentioned hunting it is a good round, just cost more to practice with.

Excellent pistol that you just can't make not work. Not as sexy as some of the newer stuff out there but probably the best selling pistol in the world in for good reason You will probably need a 3.5 pound disconnect for a lighter trigger pull. A set of good sites and possibly a longer barrel,which is easy to come, by to get the velocity up. Enjoy.

Re: Glock a good decision??

I would rock a 10mm! The FBI used this round for a short time period. 10mm Auto - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. My first pistol I bought was a glock 23c in a .40 cal. Great gun which was also adopted by the FBI. I also bought a glock 36 slim line .45 cal which was an awesome concealment gun (I'll buy another). However, I had sold both of them due to needing college money at the time. The only downside to the 10mm I could see would be the cost of ammo and availability. If you believe in all the zombie voodoo, it might be hard to find 10mm ammo on corpses! I have since moved onto a HK USP Compact in .45 and my daily driver the HK P2000sk in a .40. Good luck!

I like that Wikipedia article (the 40 s&w stands for short and weak) yep I'm going with the 10mm. Why not right!

Re: Glock a good decision??

I have a Glock 21 which is a 45ACP. Put a 3.5 trigger spring and a heavy duty firing pin spring in it. Also bought a spare drop in Barstow target barrel. With this barrel it will shoot with my best. I have lots of handguns but this one is the perfect beater. Accurate, tough as nails, big, deadly reliable, ugly as sin. It takes down and cleans up in under 5 minutes. I went with the 45 because I wanted to shoot a lot in order it to master it, and use it occasionally in bowling pin and plate shoots at my club. If you ever reload with hard cast lead, it is not advisable to use the polygonal stock barrel design that comes mounted on the pistol. I went with the 45 primarily because I have a Dillon high volume reloading set up, and a large supply of components. You can get easily accessible, cheap ammo anywhere if necessary. I also like heavy bullets and big holes when it comes to pistols......
