10mm on the trail....more than just me

Ran into another 10mm toter on the trail to a local waterfall the other day. I saw he had a large frame glock strongside, whitch is pretty common up here, but when i saw the compensator i asked him if it was a G-20, and he replied that is was. I said nice choice, and showed him mine.

I wish i had takled to him more, its nice to have local 10mm buddies.

Maybe 10mm is a bit more popular in my area than i thought.

Why do I carry a 10mm?

Mine goes into the field with me every time I go. There isn't much to fear in the woods here in the mid west, however we do have a large coyote population that is being reduced 10mm at a time.

Marine 1, you all need to be more careful, two 10mm's in the same vicinity might cause a disturbance in the FORCE! Wielding and unleashing that much power might cause a rip in the fabric of time and space itself!

Walk smartly and carry the 10...

I'd be shocked too to see someone with a 10mm. I carry my G29 in the woods to protect against pot growers, meth heads, black bears, or just dispatch a wounded critter. Lots of horsepower and ammo in a small package that's easy to carry around. Oh yeah, it's fun to shoot too!

Its fairly popular on the trail, probably more so than on the street.

Yes I agree.

More people should be carrying the mighty ten on the street though.

Did you ask him if he reloads, and if not could you have his brass?

Glocks are pretty universally hated in the circles that I run with locally. At an IDPA match this year the MD needed to pound a stake. "Anyone have a hammer... or a Glock?" Lots of eyes looked my direction. (G20 is my IDPA gun).

Lots of really good competitive shooters here that like steel guns and hate Glocks. It is a somewhat combat sport to see how far guys can go to pick on Glocks and Glock shooters. That being said, many of those same guys are fond of the G20, and tout it as "the only Glock to own" for its trail/wilderness capabilities. That is what I trust.

G20 when I bowhunt. Underwood 220 gr hard cast will put a substantial hurt on evil critters.

I don't live in Alaska, but I keep reading and hearing more & more about guides, hunters, and locals trading off their 5- or 6-shot magnum wheelguns for a 10mm G20, or sometimes I'm seeing them mention a G29. The reasons cited for dumping the wheelie are almost always: low capacity, slow-to-reload, and boat-anchor weight.

No doubt, most who still carry one of these large-framed magnum revolvers end up dumping them into the lower recesses of their backpack, which of course renders the gun inaccessible when Mr. Grizz 'rounds the turn on the trail.

Carried my Glock 29 on a hike this afternoon. Loaded with 10 rounds of 200 grain Buffalo Bore FMJ in a Fobus number 4 holster. Light and easy to carry and quick to access if needed.
