Shot my 1st 10mm today

Took my Dad to the range today to shoot my G21sf and new 92FS. My Dad brought along his Glock G20sf. Shot some 10mm Winchester Silvertips. That gun is a blast to shoot. I grouped tighter with the 10mm than I did with my G21 and 92FS which I shot before. It's kind of a sharp recoil, but not punishing at all. My Dad says the Silvertips have more pop than some American Eagle FMC that he found, but the Double Tap 180 Grain FMC had more recoil than the Silvertips. I can see why people enjoy the 10mm. It makes me want to trade by G22 for a G29 or G20.

The Silvertips happened to be the first load I tried in my 29, and I was amazed at how well they shot. They're not the hottest load on the planet, but they seem to shoot well in both of my Glock 10mms. At about $1/shot, I don't shoot too many of them, anymore...but still use them as a SD load.

You've been bitten. There's no going back.

I've already been wondering how I could trade off my g22 for a g29 or 20sf. For the life of me I can't figure out why it's not more popular. My father is enjoying reloading for it.
