I'll bet that Jim Williamson (TS) would be happy that this still has legs.

I'm sure he and shouldazagged are up there right now comparing vocabularies.

He still has 16-36 to go.

Before you spring for the S&W 10mm do yourself a favor and handle a Springfield Armory XD-M 10mm.
I do not like Glock's 22į grip angle, the XD-M has normal 18į geometry and I assume the new S&W 10mm does too.
I'm happy with my 5.25" XD-M 10mm. It has three grip inserts to assist with fit.

Reconsider your barrel length. The bear will care more about how hard it is hit than how fashionable you think your 4" gun is.
