10MM For Trail Gun?

I'm an avid bicyclist/jogger. The bike & walking trails in some places have black bear, gator, hogs...etc sharing the same space occasionally. Would the 10mm be a good trail gun with a hunting load, jic?

With the right ammo, it should be ok.

not sure you need to worry about bears, gators and hogs in indiana- but the 10mm is one of the most versatile and powerful rounds(when loaded properly) available in auto pistols these days

Sounds like a good choice to me.

10mm is the great in-betweener of the handgun world, but I'd say it's a decent compromise for your purposes. A .357 mag would be good (and comparable) for this use if you like a wheel gun better.

I totally agree.

.357mag is such a versatile cartridge it is amazing. Good thing with a wheel gun is you can mix up the loads...

I carry the first 2 as shot shells for snakes while hiking here then buffalo bore flat nose for animals, 2 legged and 4.

I would feel comfortable anywhere in the CONUS where there arent brown bears with the 7 shots of .357mag out of the 4" barrel of my 686 plus...

If you only want to carry a semi auto, then 10mm is a great choice, although .45acp would do the trick as well if you dont need to worry about bear...

I think the 10mm would be a great choice for your needs. I prefer the 200 grain loads.

Jogging with a pistol of any real size is a bit of a challenge. Walking... no problem. The 10mm will do fine for the above mentioned needs. A G-20 would be a good choice. For distances up to say 15 yds., it would be very adequate. Shots out beyond say 30 yds., you'll need to really work on accuracy. If you anticipate such shooting as more than occasional, it'd be better to choose as different handgun for the round... say a S&W revolver as it will be capable of much better accuracy.

I have a S&W 586 357 magnum, I also have a Glock 20 10mm. IMO the Glock 10mm is the only way to go for a trail gun for Black bear and smaller. Lot more capacity more choice for ammo.
My 10 mm is my daily carry. For me it doesn't get any better then 10mm.

All the Way

i would probably want something in a magnum round if you are worried about the animals you just mentioned. as previously stated, .357 would be good
