Considering a DW in 10mm. Anyone know of anyproblems associated with DW 10s?
Nope.... folks love 'em. Problem is that demand has dropped off a tad in recent years. Keep in mind that total production for all models is just 3000 guns for 2009, 2500 in 2008, and less in previous years. They've announced a target of 3500 pieces for 2010 BUT none will be in either 10mm or 40S&W. So if you want a Dan in 10 you best get a move on. That or wait for a possible run in 2011.... There's a helpful locator thread here for who has what in stock: http://forums.1911forum.com/showthread.php?t=245740
Found one near me and may be picking it up tomorrow...but still unsure if I want 10 or.45. Worried about over penetration, and the thought that .45 might stop someone better than 10....45 has a good track record...
I had the same decision when i was looking at CBOBs. There was the allure of the mighty 10mm... but offset by the cost and available of ammo. If you reload, its not such a big deal, but for someone who doesn't you're looking at a premium for 10mm. Also, after shooting a 10mm, although a very fun round at the range, I was quite a bit more confident with my ability for follow up shots with.45 ACP. For me it was a better idea to stay with a caliber that I already had a gun in.
