I'm a fan of the capabilities of the 10mm.  This gun is a temptation to me...

 

Dammit...

 

Very happy w/ the G23.4/.40/180 gr., and the G36/.45 ACP/230 gr. for that matter, for social obligations.

 

Both 400 ft-lb sub-sonic, that expand well and reliably, and are also pretty easy to shoot well out of a lt/wt EDC pistol.

 

Put the 10mm in the .357Sig/Mag basket for a field/trail round.

 

 

... but that's just me.

15 rounds of 10mm.  Not bad.  Yes, it's a Glock-a-like, but a nice option.

In that theoretical concept of "if you could have only one" I'd probably pick the 10mm.  Its versatility, in being able to be loaded light for social situations and loaded hot for backwoods/trail use, all in one platform, makes it a compelling choice.  It's such a flat-shooting round that in a compact pistol it's almost like hauling a concealable carbine along with you.

 I never use light rounds in mine for self defense.

 I have fired a box of .40 out of it.

 It was like firing my 9mm.

Either Winchester Silvertips or Federal Premium LE.

 Both in 200 gr.

 Like 1300 fps and a big smack when they connect.

I do like the Silvertips; the 175-gr. Silvertips were my primary carry load for a VERY long time for Urban carry; but for backwoods I'd run the 200 gr. hard-cast Buffalo Bore for dealing with dangerous critters.

  They still make them for 9mm too.

I have a couple boxes of the 115 gr. variety.

 I'm out in the woods every day.

I've only walked up on bears 3 times and they were running away as fast as possible.

 It's people out there one needs to worry about.

The woods is where a lot of meth labs and attending meth heads are to be found.

I am lucky to be in a pretty nice oasis of nature; but I do like to head up into the mountains on a regular basis too.

Most bears want nothing to do with people.  When you do hear of a bear encounter it's usually because a brain-dead human walked up on a cub and mama took exception.

I am far more concerned with the two-legged predators instead of the four as well.

There is a problem in bear country Re: kills.

 

They have gotten lazy, and now come to the shot for food.

 

The will also hunt up wind to a kill.

 

Because of this, they have also become more aggressive generally on the trail, because we are now associated w/ food.

 

Not good.

 

Have gone to carrying an M1 rifle, and hunting w/ a 9.3x62mm Mauser and 286 gr. A-Frames.
