While were on the subject of 10mm, is anybody aware of an actual SD situation when the good guy was using 10mm, and what the outcome was?? Specifically
against the 2 legged type. Are any LEO's using or used 10MMin the past ??

The 10mm is a versatile cartridge, much more so than the .45ACP. The 1911 platform can be made to handle the 10 mm, but in the 10mm hi power loads it has it's limitations. The 10mm can be loaded to shoot from 350 FPE to almost 800 FPE, so it requires a chamber strong enough tho handle the hi pressure, and a recoil system that can adjust to the differences.
The Glock 20 is a purpose built 10mm handgun, with easily changeable recoil springs for higher energy rounds. So in 10mm you can tune it to reliably fire lower energy range practice ammo or high energy hunting ammo.
The .45ACP is a self defense gun with a punch from a heavy slow bullet. It is accurate and reliable if built right and maintained. I do not own a 1911a1 or a variant. The closest I have is a S&W model 39.
I can say the Glocks are reliable, and accurate enough to 50 ft for any need.

And the Glock like many other handguns can do a great job at greater ranges than 50 feet even for average type shooters.

Why did that guy post a YouTube video?? To show how much he isn't familiar with a 1911???

45 ACP is about as effective as the 40 cal or the 10mm. But it's milder and easier to handle. But that big 45 cal. bullet makes up for a lot of Blast and recoil. The 45 is just smooth.

Arizona vs. Harold Fish: Hiker carrying a 10mm Kimber is attacked by a man with a criminal history. Attacker gets shot and killed, hiker gets 10 yrs. for manslaughter, in part because he was using "too powerful" of a cartridge with "deadly hollowpoints." The "powerful chambering" and hollowpoint ammo issues could have been solved with a good expert witness.

If they'd have hired an expert witness, he could have told why both hollowpoint bullets and a 10mm were justified.
