Hi,

I have been doing some reading on the Glock 10 mm. I would like to know if it has a punishing kick to it. I have a Glock 19, and it shoots very smoothly, no kick....just a little bump. But the 10 mm, well, I have heard that it kicks like a horse.

Pleae share with me your experiences.

Thank you.

Depends on the loads. But generally IMHO = to the 21

I own 3 10mm Glocks.

My 29 doesn't kick too bad. Kinda like the 30, but a little sharper. No quick double taps.

My G20 has more of a solid push than a snappy kick like the .40's I have never regretted buying it. The heavier slide and recoil spring helps with the recoil a lot. You should try to test one if you can, but I'm sure you will like it.

This is my experience spot on as well. My CCW is a G29sf and I have been very happy with it. It certainly doesn't kick like a horse and is very managable. I highly recommend renting a G20 and a 29 if you have a chance to do so. It will put a grin on your face for sure. :cool:

It's all relative to what guns you have shot before. That being said I don't think it's bad at all.

Very manageable recoil! Not bad at all!

Only have shot mine once and it wasn't bad at all. It was only some Hornady rounds through. Really want to shoot some but haven't had time

Depends on the load. it can feel as mild as a lightly loaded 40, it can feel as healthy as a .45 or it can kick like an angry clydesdale

It's not bad but with the right ammo you can feel the power,which is very controllable.

You know that was my exact thoughts, as I thought it was just me and wasn't going to tell anyone but like you said,"you can feel the power of the gun and it is really manageable"

I can positively tell you that I actually feel something different the you do shooting another Glock. I remember when my son shot it the first time and he was like man that is sweet, I can actually feel the slide going back to battery. I love the 10mm it is a thrill to shoot........and if you Roll your own then the price drops drastically.

If you have any strength in your hand, no issues EVEN with max loads. My wife can shoot my G20 with Underwood ammo at 1600FPS. She's 5' @ 110#.

Hell, get two. You need a G29 to go with a G20. :cool: And also welcome to GT. :wavey:What Glocks do you have? Obviously one might be a 10mm? :cool:

Lol! Standard loads feel fine. Like others say, in both the 20 and 29. But some super hot loads and you will know you have the power of God in your hands!!

lolololololol just messing around. But you get the idea...

It doesn't kick bad. I've wondered why people worry about 10mm recoil and I think in part it's because people hype up the 10mm's power (nuking small countries with it, shooting the 10mm causing the earths axis to shift, all the power of a 20mm Vulcan in a smaller package, etc). It's a service caliber cartridge, it's not going to snap wrists. Also the G20 is the heaviest Glock model. I would say it recoils a little more than a G21, but I've shot my .40's that kick harder (sometimes) than the 10mm.

Recoil is extreamly subjective.

Personally I find even my heaviest 10mm loadings pleasant to shoot I will say with hot loadings the G20 is easier to shoot than my steel Delta Elite.

Shooting a G29 is more of a handful but even that is t painful in the least. It's just allot less grip to hold on to!

Agree, posted this pic in another thread yesterday.

I was actually nervous to send the first 9x25 down range... had a good laugh that day.

The 10mm is a very fun round to shoot. A great caliber for a reloader... lots of options.

The factory must have left out the recoil on my 10mm pistols as well. I'll call first thing in the morning and see if I can get it shipped.

The thing we need to keep in mind OP is that RECOIL is the sign of POWER in a caliber. My .22 rifles don't recoil at all, but I wouldn't want to take them to a firefight. It blows my mind the number of guys who will only shoot a caliber that is COMFORTABLE for them to shoot. What?!? Are we picking out mattresses here?!? My guns recoil because it means there's some serious ft./lbs. of energy being transferred to the intended target. If I wanted soft and comfortable I'd carry a roll of Charmin. Or a G19. :rofl:

Thanks everyone for your responses. They were very helpful and encouraging. I will try to rent the Glock 20 and Glock 29SF for a comparison before buying.

If the Glock 10 mm will kill a wild pig, it definitely will stop a bad guy coming into one's home to do bad mischief.

Nope... no problem. A 180 XTP at 1300 or a 200 XTP at 1200 will bring a piggy down real quick.

That's really good to know bc I never order the "hot" loads just standard stuff especially the XTP bc of the price:) I do feel more confident with it as a side arm when hunting. Will be even sweeter when I can actually be close enough to actually hunt with the g20sf!!

Oh don't get me wrong... these are hot loads! I handload my 10mm hunting ammo to the full original Norma specs.

My 180 XTPs are at 1300, Hornady factory XTP is at 1180.
My 200 XTPs are at 1200, Hornady factory XTP is at 1050.

But believe me, that 180 at 1180 will still DROP a pig!

First load up some hot .357 Magnum in a lightweight snubby. Fire all rounds, cuss, empty the chambers, shake your hand.

Second shoot a magazine full of hot 10MM through your G20, you'll love it and talk to it like a fine woman. :cowboy:

I got a 29 a few weeks ago....with PMC Bronze 170G JHP,CCI Blazer 200G TMJ,and Underwood lightspeed loads yea,it kicks like a 5Lb 50BMG with no muzzle brake!:rofl:I am a recoil whore and it was great to me!Made my hand tingle from the recoil(and something else!!!!!:wow:).Now the pink powder puff crap that is loaded to Colt safe specs(God,they suck!GLOCK RULES!) is about like my PT92AF shooting 115 grain 9MM.

I have to agree, I love my Delta for the ergonomic but the G20 deals with the recoil better.

I find the recoil much more comfortable in my Glock 29 than my subcompact Glock in .357 SIG.

If you hands are big enough to grip the gun properly, then recoil should be no problem, unless you shoot a lot of rounds in a session.

Factory loads are like .40 with just a tad more kick. Full house loads, you'll know you shot something.:supergrin:

Worst thing I ever did was sell my G29, I havent been able to get another one since! I had a 29 and 20, I reload so cost is not a problem. I had factory weak loads, very hot factory loads, very hot reloads and mild reloads. I like the 10mm's and if given the chance I would swap my G30 for a G29 any day!

This is good info. I have a 29sf on layaway right now to go with my 20sf. Once I pick up that 29sf, then I will have one of all of the 19 currently available Glock models. Maybe one day I can find a used 17L or 24 at a gunshow.

The 29SF is a gem, IMO.
It can be a bit 'snappy' with Underwood ammo, but still very shootable.
Awesome gun and caliber.
