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.

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.

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!I am a recoil whore and it was great to me!Made my hand tingle from the recoil(and something else!!!!!).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.

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.
