    I'm wondering how is it feel to shoot a 10mm vrs a 45?

    10mm is equivalent to a pretty hot .357 mag

    45 is a 45, not sure how to explain that one......

    A .40 has more felt recoil than a .45 imo, so a 10mm would definitely have more felt recoil.

    Isn't the .40's felt recoil because it is on a 9mm frame? If the 10mm is on the larger .45 frame it would probably have less recoil.

    Yes and no. The .40 just flat out has a higher compression so in turn more recoil. The flip side would be the .45GAP, it too is on the small 9/40 frame and to me it feels more along the lines of the 45acp 'push' than the snap of the 9's and 40's.

    I have a G20, and it does kick more than any other caliber. My only dislike of the G20 is the frame size, I have large hands anyway but I guess after 15yrs. of G19's and G17's the G20 feels huge. I can also attribute it to I don't shoot the G20 nearly as often as the G19 or G17.

    Is the 10mm has more ko power than 45?

    Yes it does.

    Ammo is a bit more difficult to find than .45 too.

    I have a 20C and I love it! The 10MM is an awesome round, I also have large hands but I don't feel it is difficult to handle and the recoil is not out of line! I all of the standard semi-auto calibers in the safe and the 10MM impresses me the most.

    Hey I know the g20 and g21 are basically the same other than Caliber what other difference is there ? I'm getting a g21 to go with my g30 but I'm just curious. I already own a S&W 1006 so I'm familiar with 10mil.

    Other than caliber, there is no difference between a G20 and G21.

    G20 is 15+1
    G21 is 13+1

    Here's my 10 S&W, even ported I couldn't imagine the caliber in a lighter frame.

    I don't think 10mm has much recoil. I think it feels like a 45 with more muzzle flip.

    That's cool. I like those 3rd gen Smith autos. In a all steel gun their my preferred weapons. I just never could find a 1911 reliable enough without making alot of costly adjustments.
