I want to either get a 21 or 20. 45 ACP or 10mm? Which one for general use, ranch, hogs, etc. I am already reloading 45 and am real familiar with this round, but the 10 sounds intriging.

Hogs? While a 22 will put down a domestic pig if they are wild pigs I would still recommend a G20 in 10mm. It don't cost that much to set up another caliber just go with the 10 and be done with it.

Well if another caliber is easily setup, then I'd go with the 45 GAP. :)

Out of the two choices you listed, my personal preference would be the 21, however I think that guns it physically too large. I have not held a 10mm GLOCK.

The 20 and the 21 are the same basic size. And I believe if you have a one you can shot the other with a barrel and magazine change

This is true also I would get the G20 platform and a 21 barrel. Ding! Two in one

Does not the 10mm (especially in full power) out perform a 45 of any type?
I've read that the full power 10mm is only slightly less than a 44 mag...and a lot sweeter to shoot...
the 10mm does pass the 45acp in velocity and energy delivered, especially in full power loads. it's close to the low end of .41 magnum power :)

OP, i bought a g29 10mm about 6months ago. i was on the fence too between it and a g30 .45. great little cannon ;)

A good hog gun to me is a rifle...or a scoped 44mag!? If you are hunting them with dogs, then once they are pinned, knife'em! :)

With all that above said... .45 is an easier round to find in a pinch in remote areas. I'd have both, but I'd own a .45 first. ;)

10mm. just think you will have a harder time with finding ammo im the 10mm unless you load your own only and dont paln on buying any manufactured. I know it is out there just not as good of a selection as the 45 in most cases

10mm

Easy to find good ammo from Swamp Fox, Buffalo Bore or Double Tap. I just bought 500 FMJ at Georgia Arms cheap.

I think if you are trying to take some thick bigger animals, it's kind of cruel to shoot it with something small. The 10mm is large and penetrates more than any other Glock.

45 is awesome, but for hogs, I'd definitely step up to the 10mm.
