    Mech Tech looks better for the G-Series
     
  4. It looks cool and all that, esp with the caliber conversion kits...oh boy! But I'll take my 995 at a fraction of the cost. Not to mention the cost of 10mm ammo. I sound rather 'thrifty' about it...LOL!

    It's all about the POWER.
    I have actually found many good buys for mild 10mm that exceed
    40 S&W 180gr by ~100 FPS, same 180gr bullet. Some as low as $23/50
    and usually the Full Power stuff is $31/50 from Underwood, which is
    considered the "Gold Standard" in 10mm ammo. FMJs. but they have
    some older tech JHPs that are just a couple bucks more per box :D
    The ammo costs twice as much as low powered 9mm but it is
    TWICE as POWERFUL! All part of the commitment to 10mm
    in the first place. Not bad, in my book. The 520 ft/# ME ammo
    is ~150 more ME than standard 9mm, figure 20¢ more per shot.
    DEFINITELY Worth the price of admission, as you cannot get 9mm
    at those levels for ANY PRICE. :cool:
     
  6. Truth be told, I make comments like that and repeat the sentiment over and over in my head so that I don't get interested in something that my wallet can't afford. ;) It works most of the time. Lately, I'm having trouble getting it through my thick skull wrt an Indian Scout.

    LOL!
    It only really makes sense if you want, or think you need, the extra POWER.
    But it is the only caliber that seems to be able to compete at those power
    levels for a good price point. 45 Super is comparable, and 460 Rowland
    is about the only thing that really exceeds the 10mm. Other than some
    very exotic stuff, that is. 10mm is kinda like the crossover into the true
    High-Powered Exotics...

    I did ask why no LRHO on the G forum thread. Haven't got a response. For a real combat weapon that is a plus. I am going to all BHO mags for my AK.

    OMG that's so funny why hasn't a firearms company made a carbine and a pistol that you can shot the same ammo and use the same magazines with?

    What you say Hi Point already did !
    Wow my minds blown, does anyone else know this?

    Sorry had to say it after reading some of the comments form that one link , I never knew people were so internet fact challenged about pistol and carbine info.

    Seems the rest of the firearms world is catching up to the HP firearms proven fact.
