I need a back up pistol for bear deer and coyte i am stuck between the glock 20 or the 22 i have smaller hands and didn't know if recoil and grip size would be an issue between the two but advice would be apriciated
The G20 is slightly longer (193mm vs 186mm) and wider (32.5mm vs 30.0mm) and taller (139mm vs 138) than the G22, so it is bigger, but only by a couple/few millimeters... we're talking fractions of an inch (25.4 millimeters in an inch, so 2.54 mm is 0.1 inches). Likely, you wouldn't notice the difference.
The best way to figure out which you like better is to get down to a range that rents guns and try both out.
If you want the bunch and don't want to get the 44 revolver, you could still get the G22 and buy yourself another barrel for G31. The G31 is 357 sig, you get the power of a 357 Mag. The magazine are the same all you have to do is swap out the barrel. The only down side is the 357sig are expensive ammo and of course the 40sw is expensive as well compared to 9mm.
