The G29 is a semi-automatic small-frame pistol chambered in 10mm. The Glock 29 is a concealable version of the Glock 20 hunting pistol.
It has standard Glock features such as a polymer grip that’s lightweight, but at 2.5 pounds loaded it is a heavier Glock. On the front of the grip are finger grooves and the sides have a rough texture that feels a bit like sandpaper.
Its double-action trigger is also “safe-action” meaning the safety is on the trigger rather than the side. The only way a round can fire is if the shooter pulls the trigger, because its internal design won’t allow the firing pin to punch forward any other way. This prevents accidental discharges if the pistol is dropped.
Glocks have a simple, dependable and easy-to-use design, which is why they are the preferred handgun for many law enforcement agencies. Glock recommends the G29 to hunt game and hoofed animals, and for concealed carry.
