I was looking at getting a new gun that is cheap to shoot and a 9mm looks like the calliber to go with. I was wondering what brand I should go with. Please vote and explain your choice.

NO GLOCKS!!!!!!!!!

NO XD's EITHER!!!!!

I don't like how XDs and Glocks feel in my hands.

CHEAPEST 9mm I would buy and rely on is a Stoger Cougar - it is a clone of the Beretta Cougar. Beretta owns Stoeger and just transferred the equipment to them. The finish isn't quite as nice, but it is the same gun. Low $300 range.

I don't mean a cheap gun, I ment cheaper ammo then the guns I have no so I can shoot more. Gun cost isn't really a factor in this.

CZ 75 or CZ SP01

I was was really leaning towards an HK but just figured I would see what everyone else thinks while I am sitting here bored out of my mind. The P30 will be out by the time I am ready to buy so that will be the HK I will most likely get if I go with HK.

Take a look at www.czusa.com to see what they have to offer in 9mm. There are alot of choices!

I would look at the CZ's as already pointed out. I own a couple of them and they are hard to beat for the money.

I used to own three HK's. They were neat at first, but just didn't seem to be worth the price. I voted for Sig. Solid guns, good feel, great rep.

It wasn't on the list, but you might try a S&W M&P. They have Glock reliability but actually fit a normal person's hand.

NO GLOCKS!!!!!!!!!

Sorry Dude, Glock makes the best 9mm hands down. The 17/19/26/34 there is not a more reliable, accurate, practically indestructible gun you can buy.

I like Sig's & Hk's but in a .40.

Wonder why your poll is 70%+ other?

of the guns you list just rent them all and get the one you like best. I'd probably choose a Beretta 92FS INOX.

If money really is no object, I would buy one of these:

HK USP SD

then buy one of these to go on it:

$450 - S&W M&P9
$~700ish - Browning Hi-Power
$900-2500ish - 1911 in 9mm

I guess it depends on what you are looking to do with it. For target work and fun perhaps a kimber/para 1911 pattern pistol with adjustable sights. For "combat" type practice and possibly HD, a sig 226 or beretta 92 are both decent choices, if money is an issue, the ruger P series, for concealed carry perhaps a Kahr 9 or sig 239, also it begs the question of what pistol does feel good to you.

I really love my CZ75. Try any of the 9mms that CZ offers before deciding on another.

Get the USP and Beretta. forget everything else. they may be cheaper, but they sure aren't in the same class as the first two.

July 24, 2007, 11:45 PM
CZ75 or M&P, both great shooters, feel great. The BHP does not feel as good in the hand to me and I don't shoot them well.

Have you considered the Taurus guns? Lots of 9mm choices, from the smaller MillPro to larger sizes.

A BHP of course.

Walther, Cz and Bersa are some other good options.

I would highly recomend the CZ P-01. It has great ergonomics, has been totally reliable, is nore accurate than my ability and can be found new for under $500.

CZ75. They are reliable as all get out and very reasonably priced. They are accurate and have great magazine capacity too.

from your list, 1st choice HK, second Sig, third "other" such as CZ or CZ clone.

I bought the CZ75 Compact. Great in the hand and the price is good (but going up). Single/double action, smooth trigger, combat hammer, frame mounted thumb safety, three dot sights and comes with two 15 round double stack mags.

I don't mean a cheap gun, I ment cheaper ammo then the guns I have no so I can shoot more. Gun cost isn't really a factor in this.

If you've a lot money to spend, get a SIG P210.
Most accurate and finest 9mm auto you can get.
But it's quite difficult to get one in USA?
Get one if you find one!
They run for approx. $800-1700 here in Switzerland.

You don't need a useless poll asking everyone's favorite 9mm, you need to look into various 9mm handguns a little more yourself.

Go visit your local shop, handle CZ's, HK's, Sig's, even Glocks and XD's. Shoot some if you've got a local range that rents them or friends that own the particular models you're interested in. A popularity poll really doesn't tell you much other than what's popular. ;)

My favorite 9mm's are Glocks and CZ's, btw. Just so I can sway your purchase even more. :cool:

man,i hate to say it,but coming from a sigsauer die hard lover,i think Glock dominates the 9mm world.low price,"ACTUAL TO HELL AND BACK RELIABILITY",cheap parts and a ton of them,accurate,and soper easy to maintain.yes,they're as ugly as a scolded goats ass,but it's not a beauty contest.

I love my CZs. I found a used AT-84 (Swiss CZ 75 clone). Fantastic gun. It was my 1st 9mm CZ pattern gun. Already had a RAMI, 85 Compact, and a 75B full size all in 40 and I just bought an SP-01 to add to the family. I want to get a CZ 75B Compact 9mm now.

I'm trying to sell my 85 Compact and maybe my RAMI to help fund the new CZs. I suppose I could sell one of my other guns, but if I get the Compact 9mm that will probably replace them both for carry.

Tanfoglio/EEA Witness. It's well worth your time to check it out.

I can't go to my local gun store and look around since they have hardly any autoloaders. They mainly carry rifles and revolvers so I have to order what I want.

Ditto on the P38. In my case, a P1, with alloy frame.
