It is a novelty, it's on the shelves in the few places that sell it because few people own a 10mm. From a self defense perspective what does it really offer that the .40 or .45 doesn't? From a purely hunting perspective, there are much better options than the 10mm.
I understand some like it because it kind of blurs the line between the two, as something you can carry on the streets or in the field. Again nothing the .40 or .45 can't do.
