I've been looking on line at the Springfield XD in 10 MM. Don't know why but starting to get that feeling. I would sell some other stuff to pay for it and I'm guessing the local FFL guy I use would come in at about $ 575 for a NIB one. No problem with stopping power there. Can't say that I would want to touch one off in the home so will stick with my above 45's for that. Time will tell whether I come out of this one or not.

Thanks a good read. It may be on the horizon but I need to raise the funds first.

That seems to be the caliber of choice for those Alaska folks that like semi-autos!

Since we don't have many of those big monsters here in the PNW, and since I went to all 9s, my woods carry is loaded with these:

The 10mm version would be nasty!

Usually up here out in the woods I carry a .357 revolver. Not really worried about anything non-human. In FL I usually have the Bond Snake Slayer in the sticky holster with first up a load of #6 and second BBL 000 Buck. So I have no idea what I would do with a 10 MM although it can be used during gun season in NH. It was a mild winter here and we are overrun with deer. I usually have 4 tags and use one but think I will try to use them all this year and either give them away to a relative or donate to the NH Food Bank who will take them on the hoof.

I have a Ruger Blackhawk convertible 45C/45ACP that I had to have and bought NIB and then could not warm up to it. It is like new so should be able to get a decent price for that as it doesn't have 30 rounds thru it. I figure I can get what I have into it.

If I was going to hunt with it that would be the model to get. As I think about it I already have a Super Blackhawk 7.5" with a red dot mounted and a 4" Redhawk both in 44 Mag so don't really need something else to hunt with. Starting to lose my enthusiasm.

I was checkin out the 4 1/2" one when they first hit the market, but since I don't reload, that's as far as I got. Ammo is about the same price as rifle rounds.

The 4 1/2 was the one I was looking at. I suspect it would be easier to reload than the .40 S&W. Real over-pressure consideration with the 40 and seating depth. Recently got some coated bullets from Missouri 180 .401 and the few I loaded would not chamber completely in my Sig and maybe in my Ruger P944. I pulled the BBL's to check. Kind of scares me seating them too deep. Still a work in progress.

Most of the time I carry a Shield 45 with 2 extra mag. I will rotate it with a M&P Compact 45 with 1 extra mag and a RIA 1911 Commander 45 with 2 extra mags. My nightstand gun is a single action army 45 colt loaded with lead 255gr semi wadcutters. My carry guns are loaded with either Gold Dots or Winchester bonded. I also have a AR pistol in 300 blackout close to my nightstand along with a set of electronic ear pro. If a group of perps are around my house I don't want my hearing to compromise the situation, I want to be able to hear what's going on.

Very interesting article on stopping power of various calibers. Thanks for posting Terry P. If you follow those stats I guess we all should be carrying a 12 gauge awkward as it might be. My carry guns are a S & W 637, Kahr PM9, and a Colt Defender. I carry the Colt ( with Speer Gold Dot 230 short barrel) the most not necessarily because of the larger caliber but because it is the gun I shoot most accurately, which is probably the most important thing. What's the old saying; " a 22 to the head is better than a 9MM in the wall".
