    You know. That's the best case for a revolver as a range gun.

    Great point.

    My guess is that he keeps that gun cleaner than the counter.

    Anyone have any experience with the 10mm? I’m an avid backpacker and have been living and hiking in Colorado for many years. A buddy of mine is wanting to go on a one week trip up in the mountains of Montana. While we have a lot of black bear out here, it’s the bigger browns further up north that concern me. I do almost always carry when heading into the woods.

    I will usually pack an SP101 in .357 mag. However, I wonder if I shouldn’t pick up a little more firepower before the trip. Five rounds with a fairly sharp recoiling “medium powered” revolver may not be the optimal choice when in Griz country. I’ve been shooting since I was a young boy so I’m very familiar with various firearms and calibers. For some reason though, it seems the 10mm has always eluded me.

    I’ve seen a trend among Alaskan outdoorsmen who are starting to carry 10mm semi auto pistols rather than your typical heavy big bore revolvers. I’d rather not have to hike around with a boat anchor, and I feel the 10mm is sufficient…so long as it is reliable. I’m currently torn between a Glock 20 or an EAA Witness. If anyone has experience with either of these two, or could make a recommendation, I’d appreciate it.

    I've heard that the Glock 10mms are good. A friend of a friend supposedly saved his life with one of them.

    The story goes that he had to leap onto a tree, scamper around, and unload on the bear. Him-1 Bear-0

    I doubt a any other pistol round would have done much better unless he decided to truck a .500 Magnum with him.


    Again, I think a huge advantage with the Glocks are what you point out- the weight. You get a lot of extra firepower for very little weight. I'm guessing for a woods walk, you'll be carrying OWB on a good gun belt. The thing would be darn near weightless and give sufficient piece of mind.

    Okay, take what nutn says with a grain of salt. Buuuut, if you want a good, extensive G20 review from a guy who has run these pistols ragged, this is what you want.

    If I were you, I would consider the long-slide version for a little more barrel length and very little added weight. It's called a Glock 40.

    Not to be confused with any of the .40 caliber Glock models.

    I used to think "Glock" was too much like the sound a cat makes coughing up a hairball, I am a believer now.

    Turns out two of them are both vets and NRA certified instructors, and the one in the white shirt is a vet, an NRA instructor and a champion shooter.

    When I think of Europeans I think; enjoy getting raped by more and more immigrants and terrorists while you are set up to die and do nothing. Around here we dont speak of Europeans because you are an embarrassment to our race.

    T_Laurich you cant teach yankees. They dont want logic. If you offer it to them evidence shows they deny it. They are bred to blindly put their heads up their queen without question. Their entire army could not even handle us rebels. When grandpa called them devils it was for a reason. I never met a decent brit in my life.

    I would not dream of trying to quell a good debate or examination of an issue you feel strongly about, yet I want to ensure you are prepared for the debate you think you want to get into. So far from what I have seen from you, you aren't. You have no position of your own to present, and you rely on distraction, misdirection, and hyperbole to try to make your points.

    I really would like to see you present an argument - a well thought out, intelligent, factual argument. You've managed to be the center of attention in this thread, so the onus is on you to carry the conversation. You want to be heard, so be heard. We look forward to what you have to say, supposing you really do have something to say.
    no yahweh you just have to accept that some people are just stupid and not capable of a conversation.

    Now the argument goes, it is just a hobby putting lead down a range, seeing how well you
    can put a hole in an object a few hundred yards away.

    And this is really a christian discussion forum issue? Hey my uzzy is better than my 50 cal
    snipers rifle that cost $4,000 to put holes in a can. Hey I can do that with a hammer no
    problems.....
    PeterJens that is not a real statistic. I just looked it up and its nowhere close. Please do not make up lies to try to further your agenda.

    Also he asked at the top this not be a debate thread because there is another thread for that and you just come in here and debate and lie at that. This shows no maturity on your part. And our second amendment right was not so we can make holes in cans. It was to keep us from falling under dictatorship like yours and to keep your gov away from us. They are trying to make us all slaves like you are and our firearms are the last defense we have.
