Regarding the gun itself. If I were to only own one handgun it would be the 10mm. The available loads are so plentiful - you can load it with light loads and you are basically shooting a .40 cal pistol (power wise) or load it with the hotter stuff like DoubleTap, Corbon and other and you have close to magnum power. I read that in Alaska one police force carry the 10mm as it is effective against polar bear.

My Point? Why not have a gun that can do it all? That line about ammo availability? B.S. Some Wal-Marts even carry it. Even now with this ammo shortage. But I prefer to buy ammo online in bulk. Given that, you can get 10mm from hundreds of online sellers.

Most rumors about the 10mm being a dead round is derived from out-dated articles that are being quoted as if it it is recent news and statistics.

I also own a .45 (Glock 30) and it is a great manstopper too. But don't discredit the 10mm based on outdated info - and especially if you have never owned one or at least shot several rounds of 10mm in different power loads.

Again, if I was to own only one pistol it would be the 10mm because it can do it all.
First of all welcome to the forum. I must disagree on a couple points. Don't get me wrong the 10mm has a place and if I find one at the right price I'm going to buy one. I've seen a few Glock 29's in pawn shops but I refuse to buy another Glock. That's another story though. I'd like to find a KORTH 10mm revolver. I haven't seen the popularity gain in the last few years with the 10mm and no new firearms that I know of have been released in some time. Ammo is not readily available like other popular calibers are. It's around but you have to look for it. When given a choice between the 10mm, 45acp or 40 cal most will choose the 45 acp or the 40 cal. Now for hunting you couldn't ask for a better backup or primary firearm. Time will only tell if the 10mm makes it. I hope it does! We will have to agree to disagree on this subject. Again Welcome!
