For my intended purpose as a woods walk gun, I'm not a concerned about recoil, but for practice on the range or the occasional match, I may think differently.
    My Ruger LCR 357 absorbs recoil better than my father in law’s S&W 66.

    Ill have to disagree, Ive shot just about every 10mm out there and the Glocks by far tame the recoil the best. The g40mos actually isnt any worse then a 9mm even with the hottest loads. I dont really mind any of them , but the Glocks are pretty soft shooting. I also have a 454 Alaskan, and a SRH in 480 Ruger....Those guns have some recoil but by far the worst recoil i ever felt was a LCR .357 with hot loads. Even with factory loads it was very unpleasant.

    We currently have four 10mm handguns; 2 auto loaders and 2 revolvers, so I have experience shooting them. While I think the XDm 10 will be a good service-type pistol, you will feel more recoil than a steel frame pistol if it is similar to the Glock.

    Have wanted a 10MM for a long time and tried to buy the Glocks several times ESPECIALLY that beauty of a long slide Glock (Think the 40) but the just NEVER felt good in my hand. I mean like I was holding a 2"x4" block of lumber. So never made the purchase. Glad I didn't as now I have affordable options. #1. I will purchase a Ruger SR1911 in 10MM soon. #2. I will save and save and eventually get a Dan Wesson Bruin in 10MM. (Hopefully by the time I get the gun we can hunt whitetail with Semi-Auto pistols in PA.) #3. I will also pick up a Xdm in 5.25" in 10MM someday down the line maybe even before the Bruin. Been reloading for .40 S&W for over a decade so all I need is a little 10MM Brass. 10MM is certainly making a comeback.
