I absolutely adore my S&W 1006 and carry it from time to time. It's what I carry on hikes and back country camping trips. Recoil on that large frame heavy gun feels less than the .40 cal glock. While I love the gun, some of it's pros are also cons. Size and weight tame the recoil but make it a burden to carry daily. Add in the small capacity mag and it's only carried when I can toss on a battle belt and open carry with a few extra mags. I do like the ballistics of the round but don't see myself buying another 10mm. If someone came out with a lever action 10mm I'd buy it in a heartbeat.
