I recently sold my G22 to fund a G20sf, which I picked up yesterday. This thing is great! I took it out to hunting club after work and burned through 100 rounds of Blazer without any malfunctions. I really don't notice much more recoil than the 40 S&W. As some have said, it's more like a "push". Anyway, if you've been thinking about trying 10mm, do it! Just be prepared to go broke if you're like me and don't reload. I think an aftermarket 40 S&W conversion barrel would be helpful.

I'll post some pics as soon as I find where my wife hid the camera! I'm thinking about going ahead and getting a 22lb recoil spring and steel guide rod since this will primarily be a hunting pistol. Thoughts?

aptrpl6, :wavey: Congrats with that G-20SF, but those Blazer's aren't much more powerful than the 40S&W. Enjoy your new pistol it should serve you proud.

Seriously you should consider the hobby of handloading to support your habit, otherwise just ship me your reloadable brass...He he he!:wow:

Keep in mind that the Blazer stuff is basically .40 cal level, so if that's the only 10mm loads you've shot, then you haven't really shot the 10mm. :) Try some full house stuff... Doubletap Ammo or Buffalo Bore... or some warm to hot stuff like Winchester Silvertips or CorBon. You will notice quite a bit of difference over .40 cal. Just saying. :wow::cool:

Yeah, I'm gonna order some doubletap 180gr controlled expansion rounds for deer season. I hear that most company's target loads are pretty weak compared to what they could be.
