No, the Glock 48 doesn’t kill the PD10. I don’t even think most people will truly find it to be a better pistol… but, time will tell on that front. It won’t be long before people start shooting the Glock 48 for real… when they do, ask them if they’ve shot a PD10 before you accept their comparative thoughts. The good news is that more and more people will be able to make that actual comparison as time goes on.
It is not all that surprising then, that one of the best shooters in the world, my buddy Rob Leatham, recently posted a video (which bordered on a rant) extolling the importance of the 5th grade physical science fact: All other things being equal, a typical .45acp round delivers more energy on a target than a typical 9mm round. My own experience, experimentation and research has lead me to the conclusion that 9mm is a better choice despite its smaller diameter, lower mass and the generally lower levels of both force and momentum that it brings when compared to .40S&W and .45acp.
