Review: SIG Sauer Emperor Scorpion 10mm

The 10mm cartridge seems to be enjoying a revival. This powerful and accurate cartridge has enjoyed a small but loyal following since its introduction, and there are many reasons this handgun and cartridge combination are enjoying a new appreciation. As the late Jeff Cooper remarked, the 10mm will do things at 50 yards the .45 ACP cannot.

Review: Glock G29 10mm Pistol — Bad Things Roam at Night

During my behind the scenes tour of the U.S. Glock factory, I saw a lot of things and many thoughts, dreams, and desires drifted through my mind. At that time, I was one of only 11 editors invited to the unveiling of the secret release of the Glock G43.

On the Tenth Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave Me a Lady Dressed in Black

Alright Santa, I know what I want. I have been above average this year and this is it. I got to shoot the Rock Island 1911-A1 FS Tactical in 10mm last week and it was awesome. My manager and I spent a couple of days drooling about the ballistics of the 10mm cartridge. I love to do the math by hand and he checked current offerings for this monster 10mm Auto cartridge. This was going to be a fun day at the range. A new gun in a great big caliber.

Cartridge of the Week, the 10mm, 10mm Auto

Those who have followed my posts know I have one foot in the past and one barely in the present when it comes to firearms and cartridges. It takes a lot of evidence and time to prove something to me. Nothing like the tried, true and tested. Nevertheless, I cannot argue with the point that somethings are good right out of the box, like the Colt Python, wait there I go again. Another thing that is hard to argue with is physics. Well you can, but people will see you talking to yourself and runaway. When it comes to physics and raw proof, there are few cartridges that rival the mighty 10mm Auto.
