Hey!  I'm in Luzerne County, PA.  I was lusting for a 10mm Glock for almost a year when I stumbled upon a deal on a G29SF and found that my lust was entirely justified.

I spent 4 years in the Marines, then fought the economy for a while.  I'm now studying electronics engineering and getting ready to make the jump back into a career.  I'm married with 4 kids and my wife is an author.  I have to admit, it is cool seeing her name on Amazon's best seller lists.

If she keeps it up, I might just become a trophy husband. :D

I'll introduce myself as well.  My name's Nick, I'm 23, and I'm currently going to school trying to get a degree in mechanical engineering.  I've been shooting for about 19 years now, mostly thanks to my dad, and I only picked up a Glock 20sf about a month ago.  I was a .40S&W fan for a while, but I naturally progressed to 10mm and traded my Glock 27 for a new 20sf.
I already reload for the 10mm, mostly Longshot, but I'm experimenting with a few other powders here and there, and I'll be posting some of my data collected in the reloading forum shortly.

I found out about this forum from a thread on GlockTalk where I lurk on the 10mm boards, but I'm hoping this forum will be a little more lively.

Glad to see a few familiar people here. Shadow, Nick, the rest of the 10-Ring gang.

Warren from Oklahoma here.

I'm 41 and have been in LE for 16 years. 

I have a 610 4", a Glock 20SF and a 1006. I've been a fan of the 10mm since Miami Vice, of course.    ;)

Mike from Ohio. 8) mbliss57 on S&W forum. I'm 55 and have jumped into the handgun world with both feet. I am an engineer/mgr hoping to retire sooner than later. I think I have bought 27 or so handguns this past year.. but I'm losing count as I'm already trading and selling to get what I do not need but absolutely have to have.  ;D  Just got into the 10mm last week with a 1086. What a kick Xss round! I spent 6 years in the Army as a Cannon Cocker and have hunted since I was young. Guns are not new...just 10mm handguns. Of course it doesn't sound as impressive as a 155mm.. or 8" but..  :D

Greetings fellow 10mm Auto enthusiasts. I credit the Shadow for the referral from the 10mm pages over at Glock Talk.

A bit about me. I am a CPA and have been doing accounting work to close to 20 years. I work in the finance organization for a very large business. I have degrees from the east and west coasts, but the most valuable things I have learned have been outside the I university. I moved to the great state of Idaho about 7 years ago, and absolutely love it here.

I have one very well used 10mm. A Gen 3 Glock 20.  I handload for it and otherr cartridges. I have accumulated a ton of chrony data from my 10mm loads. Powders include A9, A7, A5, Blue Dot, 800-X, and Longshot. Lots of different bullets too. If you are curious about chrony results,  I just might have some data that you are looking for.  I really like A9 powder.

Some of you I have met before in other forums. I look forward to ongoing discussion, good ol' BSing, and getting to interact with some new folks.

Welcome Taterhead.

If you ever make it down to the Salt Lake Area, shoot me a PM.  Maybe we can squeeze in a range trip.

Also, not sure if you like vintage military rifles, but there are VIMBAR/VIMSAR matches each spring/fall at the Golden Spike range near Brigham City Utah.

Hello everyone. I am Gerry from Miami (as you can see from my board name). I am a Materials Science Engineer but have been working as a Network Design Engineer for a big Telecom company for the past 7 years. Ordered my first G29SF from Buds this past Saturday and I should have it by this coming Thursday. Also ordered a box of each:

1) 10mm Auto 165 Grain Gold Dot Jacketed Hollow Point
2) 10mm Auto 180 Grain Gold Dot Jacketed Hollow Point
3) 10mm Auto 200 Grain XTP Jacketed Hollow Point

The idea is to test these loads to see which gives me the best result. Can wait to get my hands on my new 29SF and ammo. I have been reading the The 10 Ring for a while by the way. I registered there but never got the e-mail to activate my account  :-[. Since I see a lot of the guys from that forum here, I am really glad to part of this community and look forward to learning from all of you guys!!!!!
Best regards,
