No picture yet but I picked up a Gen4 29 today, so I'm back into the 10mm...again! Ordered up 1000pcs of Starline and a set of Ameriglo I-Dots. Went with the 29 because it carries better than a 20 ever could and from my past experience with a 29SF, it doesn't lose that much velocity to a 20. It also fits the same holster as my Gen4 30 so that's a plus The size of the 20, like my 21, means it wouldn't get carried much and as such, not used much so that's another reason I went with the 29.

So that I don't totally fail at this thread I'll post up a pic when the sights come in and I get 'em on.

I agree 100%. I enjoyed taking my 29 everywhere with me and sometimes in my front pocket, with no problems. But, with the crime rate and personal assaults with deadly weapons, on the rise in the Atlanta area, my train of thought has changed toward carry. I am less concerned about being totally concealed and more concerned about ease of draw and confidence in handling my handgun. A few months ago I would never have considered trading my 29 for a 20 or 21, but I just feel more capable holding onto that full size frame.

Enjoy your 29! I did mine.

I was looking up some older data I have on the other computer and noticed with some 200gr loads the velocity difference between the 20 and 29 was only about 35 fps, which isn't much. But anyways, decided to take a pic of it since I was out taking a few pictures today.

I plan on making this my only 10mm but I know how I am, I'm sure a Gen4 20 isn't too far down the pike.

Great thread, I picked up a G29sf lately and boy do I like her. Looking at reloading for her as well.

Got to shoot the 29 some the other day, nothing too serious just some plinking type handloads.

The 10 Ring

Target set up about 25-30 ft (stock barrel using FMJ, JHP and hardcast lead, both SWC and TCFP)
The 10 Ring

Haven't shot it yet but got the KKM 4 port in the mail today. Case support is a lot better, the stock 29 barrel seems very sloppy (loose) to me and would bulge pretty much all brass no matter how warm or normal. Still waiting on my sights though!

That's great SDGLOCK 23. Congrats! That's next on my list next year. A Gen 4 29 to go with my G30S.
I was shooting my stock Glock barrel in my Gen 4 20 over the weekend and I was amazed at how much case support it does have with my reloads.
With my top end load of a 175gr. LEE homecast bullet with 11gr. of Blue Dot and the cases were treated very well. Definitely reloadable!
I'll probably get the pearce extended mag floor plate on my 29 when I get it. When I handled a Gen4 29 at my local LGS recently,I noticed the grip just doesn't give me enough purchase on the gun for my tastes with a little spitfire like the 29.

True the grip is a bit short but even still both my Gen4 29 and 30 shoot great. About the Gen4 20, I had one about a year ago and like you mentioned about yours, it had good support for being a factory barrel. I did buy my 29 used and from the serial number I would put it at being made possibly in May 2013, but it's got the good frying pan type finish on it unlike my 30 which I bought new last month, very dull but it's accurate at least.

I got the pearce mag plate for my 29 sf and it is a different gun to fire. I will put one on all my 29 mags.

My 30S has a larger mag floor plate, not extended round wise, just thicker, longer. That's the only reason I got it, being able to get a better grip on it. I've handled the 42, feels like a toy in my hand.
Of course, 30s with it's the concealed carry ability being much better than my full size 21s and 20.
I had never considered a sub-compact until the 30S. Now I'm seeing a Gen 4 29 in my future too.

Picked this up yesterday, got to shoot it today. Got the 29 Gen4 not long ago and knew it was a matter of time before I got a 20. Well here it is, a NiB-X version, Buds has them in stock. I've got some new sights coming for it too.

And it can shoot too, here's my first five shots at about 20 ft using handloaded 180gr Precision Delta FMJ, 6.0gr TiteGroup @ 1.250" Fed LP
