Gunsite Academy founder COL Jeff Cooper thought the 10mm is an optimum balance of power and controllability for a defensive pistol. The long slide 1911 was conceived to provide even more velocity, with an extended sight radius, to exploit this power for hunting big game with a semi-automatic handgun.
The Heinie Long Slide 10mm is the ultimate realization of that concept. It has the reach to smack a wild boar on the other side of the field. It has the precision to precisely place the shot on the monster whitetail slipping through the woods.
