Any advice or suggestions?

 

I am torn between getting a Glock 34 MOS (9mm) or a Glock 40 MOS (10mm).

 

I have several 9mm handguns so it makes sense to get the Glock 34 MOS. On the other hand having a 10mm gun fulfills other needs like potentially using it for hunting.

 

I have never owned a 10mm and I have fired about 100 rounds from an older Glock. The recoil and the kick were manageable. 

 

Any suggestions are welcome. Unfortunately I cannot get both (I would if I could). 

 

Thanks. 


Thank you

From my experience with guns that could be relegated to the safe queen status, here is what I would consider before making your decision:  

 

Will the cost of 10mm ammo prevent you from shooting it as much as you'd like?  

 

And that's pretty much it lol.  

 

I have a Glock 29 and if I didn't reload, I'd rarely if ever shoot it.  Same with my 44 mag.  They're both pretty close in price for factory ammo.  I reload both for a fraction of the cost so I'm able to shoot them more often rather than letting them sit in the safe.  

 

That's pretty much all I can think of.  It's good that you'd use the 10mm for hunting so that would be a great use for it.  It's the price of practicing with it that'll kill you though, but if the ammo costs aren't a concern, that's what I'd lead towards.  

 

And 10mm is pretty awesome.  I enjoy shooting the cartridge and I'm sure out of the 40 MOS it would be amazing.  The 29 is a handful to say the least.

Well 10mm Ammo is almost twice as expensive as 9mm. I duo not reload. So as you said that will definitely be a consideration. I am not keen on a safe queen.

 

Chalk one for the Glock 34 MOS.

 

Thanks. 


Thank you

10 mm is expensive. I have a 20 and shoot it a couple of times a year. My 17 L is always in my range bag. Sent from my SM-G900P using Tapatalk

I really like the 10mm Glock 29 I own. I know the10mm round is expensive, but it is versatile and fun to shoot. The 29 is my backcountry gun. The 40 MOS is on my wish list.

It's illegal to hunt with a semi-auto handgun so if that's your only reason go with the 9mm.

Excluding rimfire, I only purchase firearms for which I reload.............. or for which I can buy dies - lol

 

You might be surprised how affordable reloading can be - I'm a huge fan of Lee reloading gear myself - were it not for their economical pricing I too would still be stuck buying factory made ammo and shooting less. You DON'T save money by reloading, you just get more rounds per dollar.

A friend of mine has a 20, 29, and 40 MOS with a Fastfire III. The 40 is definitely manageable and tons of fun, even with Underwood. I buy the Armscor Precision (not Armscor American) 10mm for about $18.50 online for my 20. Not as cheap as 9mm, but I reload the brass.

At the end of the day I usually end up shooting my 9mm guns just because it's cheap to buy, and I don't have to chase all of the brass around for when I reload because it's cheap online.

If you are likely to encounter bears the 10mm might be better than the 9mm for self defense.
