    And the other side of the issue.

      If it can be drawn, brought onto target and controlled in rapid fire on the move as well as 9mm or .38 spl sure why not

        Nothing wrong with 10mm, as long as you don't work for the FBI. Ace2

          It is far too uncontrollably powerful for Maximum Efficiency in Contextual Self Defense by mere mortals, as experts have repeatedly told me.
          Gone. Good riddance.

            The video was entertaining. They touched on over-penetration, briefly, but that concern is overrated for the most part. The best cure for that is to not miss. Ace2

              The thing with that is all things equal the 9mm or .38 spl will be easier to control than the 10mm.

                  Do you disagree with my post? If so let's hear why.

                  The guy who can control the G20 well could control the G17 even better. Disagree?

                    And that was my point

                    Even if the 10mm could be controlled as easily as the 9mm or.38 there isn't enough upside to matter

                      I suppose the shooters ability and the platform should also be taken into consideration. So in some cases a 10mm in a full sized service pistol might just be as controllable as a 9mm in a light sub-compact. A shooter that goes through a few thousand rounds a month, just might be able to control his 10mm better than some guy with a 9mm that spends the majority of his time playing airsoft.

                      I have no doubt that 10mm guy could control a 9mm better all things being equal and I do believe that 9mm is adequate, but in no way, shape or form to I believe a 9mm to be equal to a 10mm. To believe so is to deny physics.

                      I think a wise man once said something to the effect of carry the biggest caliber you can shoot effectively. The issue always becomes what one's idea of effectiveness is. I have a fairly decent idea of my limitations and carrying a 10mm in a platform I'd carry concealed is outside of them.

                          I carried 10mm for 2 years. 1 year with a G29 the other year was a mix of a 1911 and a G40.
                          I have gone to a XDS in 45 acp, contemplating switching to a G19.
                          Everything is easier to shoot than 10mm.
                          My advice, Go easy.

                            The 10 can be a challenge to control. Personally, I don't carry my 610 wheelgun as it is too heavy, but it would be good for a house gun or hunting handgun. If (and that is a big 'if') I ever go to Alaska, it would be a gun I'd consider taking with me.

                              I only carried 10 because I wanted to legitimately say I took a deer with my carry gun.
