I've wanted a 10MM for a long time.
I have buddies that love their Glocks an swear by them.
I have shot Glock 40's & 9's and they didn't bug me any.
This would be my first plastic pistol.

I like the 15 round mag.
I like the price point.
I plan on keeping it on my side while hog hunting etc.
I have been carrying my 1911, but love the idea of having the 10MM with 15+1

Anyone have anything bad to say about the G20?

Thanks

It's a Glock, that's enough.

I'd buy this http://www.sigsauer.com/CatalogProductDetails/p220-10-sao-stainless-elite.aspx

I agree. Rock Island has a double stack 10mm.

Okay... I'm all ears.

Can you tell me why I should avoid the Glock?

That's an honest question and why I posted.

I'm not here to stir the pot.

I'd appreciate some factual insight / experience.

Thanks

Yeah.

They are always breaking down, finicky about what loads shoot out of it, too many bells and whistles, and a piss poor reputation for ultra reliability across the globe; all for a reasonable pricetag.

I'd definitely do something else. There are tons of Sig and RIA still running with hundreds of thousands of rounds through them.

By the way Dredd Gummi Bears post was sarcasm. Glocks are awesome and I would take a Glock over a RIA any day of the week and twice in Sunday. Sig is a sig and great guns but for the price Glocks can't be beat.

Thanks, KRoyal.

I kinda thought that.
I've run into his sense of humor before, if I am remembering correctly.

I appreciate the clarification.

I've had a Glock 20 and let myself get traded out of it (majority of my pistols are glock and that's what I rely on). I now have the G40 (long slide G20 with optic mount). I have missed the G20 some, but really like this G40. You can't beat a Glock.

Horrible trigger, harsh recoil and bad sights. No matter what you do to your glock, it will never shoot as well as a 1911.

Harsh recoil? Lol.

Tell that to the man people that use Glocks for competition guns. I'm sure they have enough money to buy a 1911 variant yet they choose Glocks.

I've never shot a 1911 but I can shoot the chit out of my glock 22. I don't agree with any of those things.

I was that guy. I put over 12,000 rounds through a G35.. I had a Fulcrum Ultimate trigger, ZEV sights, heavy magwell, double undercut trigger guard; it was as raced as you could get a Limited Glock. I decided to go to a 2011 platform, and won the first match I took my Para 16-40 to.

Shoot a 9mm 1911, and see how little recoil there is. Then compare a g22 and a 1911 in .40. Then try to tell me a10mm 1911 wouldn't be much more comfortable to shoot, and easier to shoot.
