Pick me out a 10 mm for protection against two and four legged animals.

Budget would be under $2000. I really like 1911s but this wouldn't have to be. I currently own a Sig P226 Legion and a P938, both 9 mm. I also own a Les Baer Comanche in .45 ACP. I like having several calibers. Plus, I like the versatility of the 10 mm load. I would also consider going with a combination allowing for .40 S&W or Sig 357, and 10 mm. I'm not knowledgeable on the various caliber and barrel options. Please educate me.

Sounds like you might want a Sig P220. Personally, I'm happy with a Glock 20. It has higher capacity than my S&W 1006 and to me shoots very smoothly even with the higher power rounds.

I went through this exercise last year. Visited the gun stores, asked the questions on the street and forums, ect.
My solution was a SA XD-M 5.25" 10mm. No regrets. This is a full size handgun so concealment is not it's forte.
The basic PRP Ultimate Easy Fit trigger kit should be standard equipment. It is much better than stock yet foolproof enough tor gloves, self defense and woods use.
The reason I chose the longer barrel is this gun will see duty in brown bear territory, I wanted every last FPS I could get. It is replacing a .44 mag and accompanying a 12 g with Black Magic slugs.
There is something to this 1911. I think it'll catch on.

I would recommend a P220 10mm. It cannot be easily converted to .45ACP. It is a 5" that was built for the 10mm. It is not the same gun as the P220 in .45ACP. The thing is built like a tank. It was a collaborative effort between SIG Sauer and Bruce Gray of Grayguns. It is Very accurate. It handles every load that Underwood makes with ease. It comes in DA/SA models with fixed combat night sights, or SAO models with adjustable target sights. I have two DA/SA models with fixed night sights. A reverse two tone MSE and an Emperor Scorpion.

My second choice for a multipurpose gun would be the G20 Gen 4.

I have a Springfield Armory 6" TRP Heavy Operator 10mm that is a work of art. It truly is a fine weapon. I also have a G20 Gen 4, and a SIG 1911 TACOPS 10mm.

The G20 is very reliable and easy to shoot. With 15+1 rounds of Underwood 180gr Speer Bonded JHPs (Gold Dots), it is a lot of firepower.

But in my humble opinion, the P220 is the best gun ever chambered in 10mm. It makes the hottest loads an absolute joy to shoot.

My humble 10mm collection. The P220s are my favorites.
