Glock 29

This is a discussion on Glock 29 within the Non-XD Handguns forums, part of the Other Handgun Talk category; All right think I get the general idea of what your saying, thanks. With that said though, is a 10mm nessacery? Is it doing anything ...

With a G20, I get two more round than with a G21. 10mm shoots flatter; probably better for hunting. Doubt any better for personal s.d.

Here's a sub-6", 3-shot group that I shot @ 100 yds, off the bench, with my G29, shooting some of my reloads, certainly good enough for s.d. @ 100 yds. .

That equals a 1.5 inch group at 25 yards ... And people say you need a gun that has the word "Competition" in it to be accurate enough for competition.

LOL ... Nice shooting, Merc !!

I don't know what the multiplier is nor how to figure it, but I can attest that, as you approach 100 yds shooting targets with a handgun, every heartbeat is exaggerated and makes good groups harder to attain than at 25.

I was, frankly, surprised that I put three within six inches with a G29 @ 100 yds. Wasn't REALLY practicing for s.d.; just tried a few @ 100 yds out of curiosity about my/the G29's ability to shoot @ that distance.

SF = slim frame

I probably should have put the "LOL" on a different line ... Trust me, I'm complementing your shooting.

And I agree, as distance increases, everything gets exaggerated.

Also,
Your target helps prove a point I've been trying to make, as I analyze a few guns - XD9 Tactical versus XDm 5.25 range reports from the bench

Once again,
Great shooting !!!

No, it's Short Frame...the distance from the back of the grip to the trigger was shortened. The width is the same.

The only Slim Frame Glock is the G36.

My G-29 is very accurate when I'm up to it. I shoot mine mostly with a KKM .40 conversion barrel and get 3" groups at 25 yards with my plated bullet handloads in .40 brass. The stock 10mm barrel doesn't like plated bullets, it does better with Hornady 180 grain HAP's.

The Pearce pinky extension magazine floor plates are an essential accessory. Gives a full three finger grip without making the gun any bigger.

Silvertips are my choice for factory SD ammo, but I'm working on a handload with 180 XTP's.
