I think the 10mm / .40 got some of its interest when th FBI was going to go with the 10mm mag. If I remember rightly it was going on a S&W. Shot really flat had alot of power, but (like Blair with a .45) people with small hands such as myself didn't like shooting it. So the normal .40 became more popular. Blair brings up some good points. If you can't comfortably shoot a gun it really is of no use other than to scare someone. If want to do that then get a snub nose .357 mag. But I digress. I would get a gun and caliber combo that you can shoot well. Keep the Marine Sniper adage in mind "One shot one kill" and you will be good to go.

Thanks guys.

Im really looking for something thats all around good. Good power (would prefer more over less), not too complicated to use, highly reliable, highly accurate, not too expensive, etc.

I dont think hand size will matter for me. I have some pretty big hands for my size.

What do you guys think is better:

The XD in .45 acp or the Glock 21 also in .45 apc?

As of right now I like the Glock.


I haven't been able to find much information about the Springfield XD.

I've also heard about problems with the Glock's ambidextrous magazine release. Is that true? Has it been fixed?

Is the Glock 21 right handed only?

Edit: The G21 is right handed only.

The G21 SF is ambidextrous with a couple of differences.
