Yessir!When I first read the OP, I had to check the date to make sure it was a current thread and not a post from 1990.
CCW choice .40 S&W vs. 10mm?
I choose neither, sorry to crap in the thread.
I will carry a Glock 20 if I'm in polar bear or grizzly country. I was, for a little while in a previous lifetime, issued a Glock 23. Not really ergonomic, a bit snappy in the recoil department, barely adequate accuracy. Reliable, though.
To me, the .40 S&W is a superfluous cartridge; the current 9mm and .45 ACP premium JHPs easily equal or exceed the performance of anything in .40 S&W with less recoil, and in the case of the 9mm, much higher magazine capacity.
Anything in 10mm? Almost as cumbersome to shoot as full house .44 Magnum. With less accuracy. (Of course, that could be because we tend to shoot 10mm out of plastic pistols while we shoot the .44 Mag. out of heavy steel revolvers.)
I dunno. I'm no expert on the 10mm and since I've rejected the .40 S&W, maybe I have no credibility. On the other hand, while on active duty carried, qualified with and shot a lot of .45 ACP for about 13 years until being issued, qualifying with, shooting and teaching the 9mm for another 13 years (during which period intermittently serving as a reserve deputy and police officer issued the 9mm & .40 S&W) before sequeing into the full-time law enforcement gigs), then being issued a .40 S&W for a bit before transitioning back to the 9mm...
Hey, whatever floats yer boat...
