Anyone carry one? How is the recoil?

Any problem with the ballistics with the short barrel?

Are they worth the extra expense with ammo?

Thanks

I love my 29sf.  I usually carry the G20 mags as backups.

I'm also patiently waiting on a G40 MOS to take full advantage of all the 10mm has to offer.  I've had it on order since Feb. '15....

I've considered picking up an extended barrel (adding ~.5") to the 29sf, but I'm still on the fence.  I'm going to chrono some of my rounds first to get a baseline before I drop the dough.  I believe Storm Lake and a few others make a slightly extended barrel for the 29.

I carry a 29 daily. I put a +2 base and love it. The recoil is not bad even with hot loads. Plus accuracy is great for a short barrel pistol.

I carried one for a few years, it's a little thick but a good holster helps.
I liked it, it was accurate and never malfunctioned, and non gun people keep saying 'you mean 9mm' until you hand them a round.
Broke my wrist last year and it was no longer fun to shoot warm loads, so i traded it for a P238 Equinox for the fiance.

I carry one. I love it as a poster above mentioned carry a G20 mag for a refill if SHTF.

I've actually shot clean scores at bowling pin matches with mine using 180 or 200 gr practice loads.

It is pretty loud but that's not a bad thing
