    Best defense ammo for a 10mm???

    I am a very proud carrier of a Glock 29 10mm. I know some say its overkill but in that split second of decision will you have a table beside you giving you gun selection??? I think not.. To any other owners/carriers of a 10mm I would love anyone's opinion on what they feel is the best defense round. Thank you..

    I use underwoods 135gr hp's. I also like Hornady's xtp's in 155 and 180gr. Winchester silver tips are also well thought of. I suspect you could use any modern self defense round and be ok.

    Whatever you choose, be sure to practice with it so you understand how it shoots - particularly if it's significantly different than your range ammo.

    I use Hornady Custom 180 gr. XTP. Very accurate out of my G40 with little recoil. A lighter, faster load might be a better choice for the G29's shorter barrel.

    Sig makes a pretty good SD round. They don't cost five bucks a round either!

    I must say I'm giving careful consideration to this caliber. And I am considering at least 2 guns in it. One would for sure be some type of Glock. And the other a 1911. There is simply too much good offered by this caliber for defensive purposes. The only downside appears to be it requires careful ammunition selection. A lot of these factory 10 MM rounds are considerably underpowered. With many not delivering much more punch than mediocre .40 S&W rounds.
    I don't need my AR-15 "Assault Rifle" any more than Rosa Parks needed to sit in the front of the bus.
