I love my G29sf. It's the only 10mm that can be stuck in your pocket while you're working........in a not-so-friendly area.

I can't say that there is a best.

That being said, I shoot my G20 in IDPA and guys, mostly curious, ask me all the time why I chose a Glock 20. I never really know where to begin:

Versatility of loads. Load 'em hot or load 'em light.
Extremely reliable platform
Easy to shoot, maintain, and operate
Concealed carry is not out of the question (do it regularly)
Nice magazine capacity
Precise shooting
Etc.
Etc.

I love my G20.

Now you've done it:

...insulted Glock and the US Marine Corps in the same sentence.

Easy there Army Dog! (Jarhead here).

I just got a 29SF, but haven't got to the range yet. The trigger feels better than the 26 I traded in for it. Now I just have to figure a way to get a 20SF. I also noticed that the rounds feed more smoothly than the 26 or 35. I assume the longer cartridge doesn't rotate as abruptly when the bullet hits the feed ramp.

It's fine. Everything will be alright. Just breathe in and out slowly.

My G20 is certainly at the top of my long list of favorites. However, I love all my handguns equally. Unfortunately lately, my G20 is the one I shoot the least (I have to settle for my other 10's). When I have friends over for a shoot day (almost every Sunday afternoon, I have a rifle/pistol/archery/trap range at my home), a lot of 10mm ammo goes away, and it ain't me doin' it. They love it too. I'm gonna cut them off, so they'll have to get their own! Maybe I can shoot mine again, someday.....

Curious to know what type of pocket holster you're using for the G29 ? I've considered it with cargo pants

No doubt. A G29 (or 30) is not small by any measure. It's less large than it's daddy, but that's about it.

My G29 is my do all handgun, I carry it in the woods, wal-mart and it stands guard on the night stand. Now that is a truly versatile handgun

Yes I carry my G20 comfortably in my Hunter pro ride at 2:30. hold it very tight to my body with perfect forward cant hides well.

Going to the range again today I wish I could post pictures here I would like to share the fun. But when I try to load a pic, it says I have to many when I go to attachment it says none I have emailed GT many time and I get no help.

Man I dont know about "the best semi ever made".

I would probably put the Glock 19 on top 3 for sure, with maybe the 1911 in there somewhere down the short list (even tho I would never own one).

I think if you got all scientific and asked folks what the best 3 semi auto pistols made are, that the G19 would probably be in the top 3 for almost everyone and the g20SF would probably only be in those folk's list who appreciate a good woods gun (amongst which it arguably may be the best semi)

I held a 29SF the other day to see what the fuss was about and it sure is a sweet little gun. oddly enough it's because it feels a LOT like a G19.

best semi ever tho? no

There is a reason the "scale " goes 1-10 and 10 is the best.

LOVE me G20!

I agree. I love my Glock 20SF and 29SF. Now if they'd just make a Glock 36 in 10mm I'd be 100% 10mm in my carry lineup, except the occasional Ruger LCP appearance.

I have always been a slow evolver. For the longest period of time in my life, if you asked me what the all around best handgun you ever owned, I would have answered my old Model 19. Ultra accurate, lots of HP, the pinnacle of reliability. The downside obviously being capacity between reloads and it didn't make the biggest of holes.

I have had and loved many semi handguns in my time, 1911's of course the standouts here, up until fairly recently.

Lately I discovered the large frame Glocks (having only shot 9's and 40's for years) and have to say I think I am actually there when it comes to the ultimate handgun. Top, top honors have to go to my G20SF and G29SF, although my G21SF loaded with my favorite Super loads is pretty darn close.

There are still days though when I wonder what the heck I was thinking trading that old Model 19 away, I was like Wyatt Erp with that gun...

It's difficult for me to say there is any "perfect" anything, whether it be a gun, car, computer, etc. It seems like everything worthwhile has many good points, along with a few tradeoffs that I can live with.

I was a Glock hater until about 10 yrs ago when a state trooper let me fire his G22, with the dept. standard 3.5lb connector installed. It was sweet! Accurate, easy on recoil, and a much better trigger than I imagined possible with a striker-fired pistol. The biggest drawback to Glocks is that I still think they're ugly. But as an everyday tool for protecting your life, it's hard to beat what Glock has done with these pistols.

So, amongst Glocks, the G20 is definitely the king in terms of power (manageable power, too). And in terms of other 10mm pistols, there may be more accurate custom pistols out there, with sweet SA triggers, but it's hard to find anything that can compare with the capacity and what you get for the cost of a G20.

So when you add it all up, the good things are
- Power
- Capacity
- Cost
- Maintainability
- Accuracy (precision)
- Reliability

And in my list of negatives are
- Ugliness
- DAO trigger (but only a slight negative because it is very manageable)

It's a no-brainer for me. The G20 is definitely a winner!
