Shot the G40 for the first time today.

Still have a goofy grin on my face.

I think that pistol and I are going to get along quite well!

Congrats on the new Glock!

That is some serious firepower, 15 rounds of 10mm from a 6" barrel, wow. Did you have a chance to run any of them through a chrono?

I was just shooting American Eagle ammo that they had on the shelf when I bought the pistol. Nothing special or interesting, lol.

I'll try to chrono it as I shoot more "serious" loads through it.

I like it a lot!

I really enjoy shooting it. Was just at the range on Friday, actually, shooting some steel plates with it. The range where I go has a steel pistol range, and it's bordered by concrete walls, and has a roof over top. The 10-mil makes its presence known in there when you light it up!

It was pretty funny to watch the 10mm rounds slap the dueling tree steel plates around with a bounce on the far side. My 9mm XDs sometimes didn't move them enough to stop them from swinging back into the position where I shot them. I had to hit the outside edge with the 9mm to get them stay swung over to the far side. With the 10mm, any hit would do, and do with authority.

I broke down and picked up the G40 yesterday. We'll call it an early Xmas present. I had $600 of it saved and the rest my wife said "Merry Xmas ..... Oh by the way.. Your getting me .......... for Xmas". Well played on her part. Ha

I grabbed the American Eagle ammo to shoot today but still looking for woods carry ammo. Did you put or considering a sighting system for it?
Thanks for info.
Bill

No, I didn't want an RMR on it. I could see the merit to it, but for a carry gun, I didn't want to. I use it as a defensive carry woods gun....it's shorter than my Smith 57 6", and lighter, packs almost as much oomph with 9 10 more rounds capacity, and a longer sight radius. Loaded it weighs about the same as an empty 1911.

I went to Underwood for carry ammo. I got 180gr Gold Dots from Underwood. It's not their most mighty ammo, but they post their advertised ballistics on their site, and it seemed like it was what I wanted. A 180gr Gold Dot is not a trifling thing, and it's moving fast from the 10mm. The long G40 soaks up recoil nicely...I can't "double tap" like a well trained combat handgun shooter, but I can do it fast enough that if I have the ability to get the gun on target, I can get multiple rounds into a person or bear-sized target in a very short amount of time.

I did put a Streamlight TLR-1 light on it. It mounts easy, had my holster made to accommodate it, and it just lives out there on the G40's rail all the time. I carried the G40 rigged like that when I was packing elk meat and it wasn't any sort of comfort or weight issue for me at all. I put it on its own military surplus duty belt and in a good holster and it rode just fine and was easily accessible.

Now if I could just figure out why I shoot about 2" left of POA consistently with all semiauto handguns, I'd be all set. lol
