    Since I carry a G19, if I want a 10mm, the glock is the easy button. I know the glock and all glocks run the same so there is really nothing new to learn. For a revolver there are better rounds than the 10mm.
    Since I live in the SE the 9x19 parabellum is a good general purpose round.

    I know the older guns are good to go generally, and I know the current guns have fixed the frame cracking issues. If I come across a good deal on a used one I might risk it.

    The Glock 10mm guns (29 & 20) are pussycats, recoil-wise. Even the compact G29 is easy on the shooter. Rent or try one. Nothing like a J or K frame with hot .357mag when it comes to recoil.

    FTR, I am not a Glock guy. I shoot 1911s better. But give the Devil his due and all that.

    I'm not a Glock guy either and was pleasantly surprised at how tolerable they are with 10mm.

    They're OK, not great, in terms of muzzle-flip recoil (the lack of weight just doesn't tamp it down much), but they are quite comfortable to shoot. The flex of the frame takes some sting out, as does the wide backstrap. For pure 10mm shooting comfort, I'd put a Glock ahead of most narrow-backstrap 1911's unless the 1911's grips fit you just right. I'd put both of them behind a heavy steel frame with a wide backstrap, such as a Witness.

    Comparing a polymer frame revolver to a polymer frame auto is apples to oranges. Revolvers have higher bore axis that allow them to create more torque. And the LCR has a small grip that focuses the recoil energy into a small area of your hand.

    The Glock 20 by comparison has a thicker grip and a low bore axis. The polymer flexes to absorb shock. The wide grip deposits energy over a larger part of the hand, and the low bore axis pushes pistol straight back rather than torquing your wrist. Recoil is subjective, but I think my Glock 20 has less muzzle flip and recoil than a lot of polymer .45s, like the HK USP and the Springfield XD. I use only full power ammo in my 10mm--usually 200 gr XTPs at 1200 fps. And it really isn't bad. Much more pleasant to shoot than even a steel framed .38 Special.

    Really?? You are comparing a Ruger LCR to a Glock 20 and an XDm??

    Ok

    Pair of 10s. Dan Wesson Razorbacks in Govt and CCO configuration from back about 15 or 16 years. Both still doing what they are supposed to do.

    Well it would be nice if S&W decided to reintroduce the 1006 line.;)
