I broke down and got the 10mm today.
Rock Island 5" barrel.
I found out why we reload too. One box of ammo $60 for 50...
I ordered some new brass 200 pieces for $60  delivered.
 We already have dies and lead mold.
All in $850 with the ammo, holster, and brass.Clap

I think you are going to like it. Like IBD said, carry it in condition 1 (cocked and locked with 1 in the chamber) and you add one round to the capacity and it's 100% safe to carry. 

How many rounds do the magazines hold? 
I have always considered myself to be quite the bullshitter, But ocasionally it is nice to sit back and listen to a true professional......So, Carry on.

Only 8, they had one that was a "side stacker" gut the grip was way to wide to be comfortable to shoot. I opted for the adjustable rear sight rather then the fixed, I'm already over what I was going to spend a little so what another $80.
I'll get an extra clip and put it in the holster clip pocket. If I don't hit what ever in 9, I probably won't hit it in 15. I may go "Test" it today depending on the wife's LIST of to do things.
I found some gas checks I'll order today and start casting next week.Clap
I was going to get My GD a 17hmr at the same time but they were out, just sold there last one till spring the day before. Her and I may go to Scheels today, they had one on Friday.

Looks good.  Think you made the right decision on the single stack, that is the way she was designed to work originally.  You'll have no feed problems.


What rifle are you looking for GD???

Looks like a good choice.  I think it is a 93 action, had one shot great.

She is getting big, is the length of pull going to be Ok?

I had the same 'package deal scope", it was quite usable, even with my old eyes.

Look out PDs,  Annie is on the way.

We "tried it on" and it seamed to fit, maybe a smidge to long but she grows more every day.
I went ant tried my 10 . First shot ever with factory set sights. At 30 yards I hit my 8" plate 6 out of 8 times as I was standing. Needs some work.

My B-I-L picked up a Ruger American in 308 today. We ran out to shoot it and I took the 10 to let him try too. He shoots pistols way more then me.
The rifle did not perform like we thought it should, later he took it back, and North 40 backed it 1000%.
It turned out the scope was to low and put the scope at a bind. They changed the rings bases and scope free.
But the 10...
He shot 6 at the gong hitting all 6 at 40 yards then put two in to the target box at 90 yards.
Standing off hand, he said he shot directly at the target not over the top.
Clap
I likey!
