In my world the purpose of 10mm is hunting, Primarily.
Home Defense comes second as a useful option.

For an old Archer, it's a way to maintain that UP-CLOSE
requirement of hunting...by using a 10mm pistol, you have to get
within 75 yards...preferrably closer, much closer

Lets you know if your stalk/sneak skills are still up to par.
So, adding a 9" Lone Wolf Barrel lets you use LEAD ammo,
along with giving one the extra barrel length and FPS bonus.

However, the G40MOS is quickly taking over that role for many,
the Longslide version of the G20 has its advantages...still,
I like my 9" barrel, even if it stick out like a sore thumb.

Actually, with the advent of poly-coated hard cast boolits, you don't need an aftermarket 10mm barrel with traditional rifling.

The poly coating allows you to shoot 10mm HC boolits out of the stock Glock tube. 500-rds of 220gn coated WFNGC HC down the stock 6.02" barrel of my G40, and not one issue.

RIA Tac Ultra FS 10mm gets my vote. Best value. I handled one at my LGS...the fit and finish is superb.
