I carry the Glock Model 19 9mm daily, but I really like my Model 20 in
10mm. Supposedly, one can shoot .40 (I like the "Liberty!) in the Glock 20,
but i have been afraid to try. It sure would help me get ammo - the range I
frequent has a couple of 10mm mavens who regularly use up all the range
ammo just before I get there.

Heard anything pro or con on this?
