G29SF

Picked it up Saturday at Engage (thanks Andy!)and took it and my KKM 40 cal. conversion barrel to On Target to check it out.

Fired 100 rounds of 10mm 180g FMJ and 40 rounds of 10mm 175g Winchester Silver Tip JHP.

Put conversion barrel in and fired 100 rounds of 180g .40 S&W Speer Lawman. Bought 2 G20 15 round G20 mags and put A & G mag spacers on them I will use them for HD I will use the 10 round mags for carry . The 10 round mags don't have a place for your pinky like the 10 round G30 mags so I ordered Pearce grip extensions for them. They also fit the G30 9 round mags.

The G29 had zero malfunctions and the recoil doesn't seem harsh to me but I'm 6'1" and 225.The noise is louder than most other handguns but that's expected for a round this powerful.. Some of the folks shooting turned around to see what was making the big boom, I am ordering some 180g Double Tap to try for my carry ammo. This is a sweet shooter.

Very fine Sir. I think the SF grips are one of the best things Glock has done, love my 21SF.

I wish I had gotten the G30SF when I got my G30. The difference is noticeable (to me anyway. so folks say they don't notice the 3mm reduction)

Love this weapon. Jeff Cooper was a genius. I can't for the life of me figure out why the FBI thought the round was not manageable. Oh I forgot, they hired 105 pound women for agents. Fail

I figure if you are going to all the trouble to carry, might as well make it a big one! The G29SF carries and conceals well too.

I am very happy with this fella.

When I go to crappy places, maybe I'll carry the G29 in my Miami Classic II shoulder rig and my G30 as my BUG in a Supertuck.

Whaddya think?

For concealment, I don't like the pinky extensions as they tend to stick out. I've been learning how to shoot my SR9c without them for that reason. I'm still combat accurate without the full grip which makes me happy since I'm not an amazing pistol shot to begin with.

The Pearce grip extensions don't really seem to me to poke out at the rear any more than the 10 rounders seem to. The extra length is on the front for your pinky. I shot fine yesterday without it but I think my grip will be better with them. I use the G20 mags when I use my shoulder rig.

My carry holsters (Supertuck) are set to maximum cant so even a little bit more length on the backside isn't really noticeable (to me anyway). YMMV

I've been kicking around the idea of getting a G20SF for a while now... it'd be an easy choice if ammo wasn't so scarce compared to the other cartridges. I certainly wish, other than handloading, there were better defensive loads available. Speer Gold Dot, Winchester Ranger T, or Federal HST 10mm would be fantastic.
