Officer, these folks in San Diego offer a Glock ultra-long slide to cover that 6" hunting barrel if you prefer--it's 8+", but it covers it up. I'm getting one custom cut for a Trijicon RMR mount. Talk to Eric--he seems to know his Glocks.

If you get one, let us know?

Thanks, but I'll just wait and see if Glock will ever come out with a longslide 10mm. I've heard rumor that they might. I'm just not a fan of aftermarket Glock stuff.

I'm not being critical of the 10mm cartridge, but a stoutly loaded .45 ACP (Underwood +P Loads: 185 gr @ 1200, 200 gr @ 1100, and a 230 gr @ 1000) doesn't give up much to the 10mm - all things being equal.

I've killed 5 deer with the .45 ACP and a hunting buddy has taken 3 or 4 with his 10mm. He obviously gets a little more penetration, but the effectiveness is essentially the same with similar shot placement. We both shoot stock pistols with standard length barrels.

I'll concede that this is a relatively small sampling, but it's enough to convince me the .45 ACP (+P) is adequate and a relative equal to the 10mm within the parameters in which we're using them.

^^ I totally agree. I don't have anything against the 10mm, but I don't see it getting the end result any better than the .45 ACP (or .40 S&W loaded right). I've actually heard people say the 10mm will knock a deer off its feet, whereas a .45 or .40 would simply incapacitate them, so getting through to those people is nearly impossible.

If you wanted a little more power/penetration you could always drop in some .45 Supers. I think Underwood makes 250gr .45 ACP too, I think, so that would get you all the penetration you need.

Glocks only? G21 in Authentic 460 Rowland if I could pick only one. Anything a 10 mm can do a Rowland can do bigger.

But.... the 10mm is a sweet cartridge and I prefer it over about anything else. The 10mm reloads better than anything except maybe a .357. A max 10mm reload is approaching overkill for for a bad guy (not that I wouldn't send the very best...). Deer and smaller the 10mm is right in the middle of the happy place.

More than deer? When I hunt with a rifle, the 460R is on my hip. I worry about bears, mountain lion, and timber wolves. As brutal as the 460R is on my hand, that is the gun I want to have in my hand when I need real firepower. I would consider a hunt with the 460 Rowland, especially if it's Hogs.

Revolver? 7 1/2" Blackhawk 44 Magnum with 300gr Devistators over 25gr of H110. Just the right balance of low cost, long sight radius, penetration, and power

Hunting w/a Glock.....

If you want to keep it basic, in my opinion the obvious choice is the Glock 20. (I just ordered a Gen 3 20SF a few days ago).

A person can hunt with it right out of the box just as it is. Of course it would be best to use true full power 10MM ammo = 200 grn. bullet at 1200 fps.

I plan on using Underwood ammo loading: 200 grn XTP @ 1250 fps for deer and hogs.

IF I end up getting an after market barrel that can shoot lead bullets, I will shoot the 220 grn @ 1200 fps load from Underwood, especially for big hogs or black bear.
