    I feel the need to buy a firearm with my official move from NJ to PA on Friday. I've got some great things in .32, 9mm, .45 and .357 Mag. Would a 10mm add to the fun or be redundant?

    10mm in any firearm would add to fun. Go ahead and get the 29 you won't be disappointed.

    "Thoughts on Glock 29?"


    Love mine ...

    10+1 10mm firepower in a very portable and concealable package. Controllable and very accurate. (Same size as its .45acp cousin, the G30). :)

    :cool:

    I suggest getting the G20. You get more bang (power) for your buck over the short barreled G29. I have both pistols. The G29 is fun but if you really want 10mm power you should have a longer barrel.

    I wish Glock would come out with a Practical/Tactical G21/G20. The G34 and G35 have nice 5+" barrels.

    You can get a Glock 6" barrel for the G20 but it sticks out quite a bit past the end of the slide.

    Stop!
    You will be too happy.
    And you will be hooked on 10mm.
    :D


    And with simple barrel changes you will be shooting .40 S&W and .357 Sig.:what:

    I have had both a Glock 29 and a 20. The 29 seemed a little wide for the length. The 20 is just right. Of course that is just my personal preference.

    The G29 is a really great pistol. My only comment is that I got tired of feeding it 10mm ($) all the time, so bought a .40 Short & Weak conversion barrel (which paid for itself very quickly) for part-time range use. You'll enjoy the G29.

    In my experience, you will only gain 60-65fps when stepping up to the G20 from the G29.

    I had one for several years, just trading it away this summer.
    It was a good gun for the most part. I had a chipped extractor way back, when it was new, and I shot it a LOT, but it still worked. Ejection was erratic, but it worked. I replaced it, and never had it happen again.

    I had a Glock 20, that I got around the same time. The 29 always shot better. I don't remember much, if any, more recoil from the 29.
    The 29's grip fit my hand a lot better, so that's probably the reason for all of that.
