We seem to have a consistent "Club" formation momentum going here, but mostly about the Mfr's. How about "Number 9, Number 9..." in honor of my birth (and John Lennon's too, if you like the Beatles...) So to get it started, here's a pic of my 9's.
If you enjoyed reading about "The "9" Club" here in TheHighRoad.org archive, you'll LOVE our community. Come join TheHighRoad.org today for the full version!

Nice set of nines there o/u mike.
My latest 9 - It will keep my Bennelli and my EMP company. Yea, I like the Beatles too.
I neglected to understand the responsibilities of starting a "Club" on this forum. All of you, thank you for contributing. We who own a 9, appreciate it's advantages. #1, it's a great training platform after the .38 and the .22, so we can always introduce folks to shooting without the pain. Keep posting!!!

My two nines (for now). I don't know why the shot rotated...sorry.
My three 9s so far:
SIG P226R Elite
Glock 19 2nd Gen
HK P2000 V3

Most of you, if not all of you know what a box stock 3rd gen G19 looks like, and that's my only 9mm for now.

Silvanus - That pic of the BHP on the rocks is making me a little twitchy. Please send it to me asap so I can put it in a safe place.
And what about the Glock?:rolleyes:
But seriously, I was so afraid it would fall down and get scratched up :uhoh: (which it didn't, fortunately)
Post your pictures anyway, Spyderdude, my 17 is nothing special either ;)

Big Red82- Tell me about your P2000. I'm looking at those right now. How is the trigger? Thanks.

My Glock 19 and a S&W mod 60 with a 940 9mm cylinder installed.

There are so many 9mm guns, there's only so much space in a safe.
I only keep the best of the best:
October 13, 2007, 02:11 PM
I had another, but I only kept this one. It won't be the last as I find 9mm to be the best caliber for me (until I find a better .45). Sufficient energy deposit, accuracy, recoil control, and capacity are why 9 is my choice.
Heres mine an HK P7 PSP love this gun shoots awsome,very accurate.

The P2000 is a great little piece for CCW. If you are familiar with HK triggers, this still has the heavy 11.5lb DA trigger.
This is my view on the trigger that I posted on Sigforum: My biggest beefs with HKs in general is their heavy DA trigger pull and long reset. Also, the trigger design itself is very curved and hurts my flat finger. The DA is pretty darn heavy. Mind you, I get very accurate shots with the DA shot (in fact, better than the SA shots), but I would like the ability to change the lbs on the trigger pull. Gunsmiths can easily change the trigger pull of Glocks and SIGS, but HKs seem like very hard guns to modify. If I could get a DA/8lbs - SA/4lbs with a super reduced reset in my HKP2000, it would be the hands down winner in the ccw department.
I would suggest trying out the LEM trigger. Besides those two things though (trigger pull and trigger curvature) - I can't praise it enough.

My only "9" is a Walther p38 the old man took out from under a trenchcoat in Germany in the 40s. Gun still functions fine, still got Dad too.

Here's my USPc 9mm SS. By far my favorite 9. Sorry for the crappy cell pic but this was today when I got back from the range. 10 rounds 7 yards slow fire WWB.
Isn't it great to have so many choices. There sure are a lot of "flavors". It's like being in an ice cream parlor. You know I have four, but me thinks there is another 9 out there for me.
October 14, 2007, 12:26 AM
...thanks for reminding me that 9 is not only Luger. I have a Bersa Thunder 380 in nickel. I guess I will have to add the pic of that one for this thread. So the MAKs qualify too? Isn't the progression 9X17, 9X18, and 9X19?
October 14, 2007, 12:38 AM
I only have one 9mm, a Ruger KP89DC. I absolutely love this pistol. Here it is all dresed up with a laser sight, that I hardly ever use. I plan on buying a XD9 Tactical before too long.
October 14, 2007, 02:27 AM
but, in order of acquistion:
1990 West German SIG-SAUER P228 :cool:
1981 Smith & Wesson 39-2 ;)
October 14, 2007, 08:34 AM
Let's see. No pics, sorry.
Mauser P-08 Luger
yes yes I know that's a Jimenez arms but it shoots well (except for pinching that little flap of skin between my thumb and pointer sometimes)its a decent cheap gun I use on the range and like the taurus it has a lifetime warranty.although I don't think I would trust my life to it or any cheap gun as far as that goes!

...that's ONE beautiful Pony!!! Keep the posts coming!!!

I've owned two 9mms and never really was all that hot on the caliber until I learned to know and love the Nine for the great shooter that it is. I've primarily leaned toward .38/.357 and .45 ACP calibers, but enjoy shooting the 9mm and like the soft recoil and accuracy.
I owned a P-38 for a while (circa 1942) but traded it in on a Colt .45 ACP, then realized that I really enjoyed shooting 9mm, but prefered something a little less "Nazi." Then a few months ago, I found a really cool Sig P-226 and bought it (it was used-ex LE gun) and it's definitely a keeper. Right now 9mm is about the cheapest centerfire ammo out there, but things are going to change after Christmas according to my local gunshop guy. So I ordered a set of dies--I like the 9mm so much now, and shoot the SIG so much, I will reload for it. Maybe work up some accurate lead target loads for practicing and JHP for serious stuff.
Here's a picture of my new-to-me favorite gun, his name is Siggie.

That luger is a beauty.
The way I figure it, if you are gonna have a "9mm" club, you had better have the original represented!!! :D
Here is the other member of my meager Luger collection: 1936 "S42".
As near as I have been able to determine, it was made at or soon after the time when Adolf Hitler repudiated the Treaty of Versailles.
It's called "9mm Luger" for a reason!!! ;)

Wa-da-da-dang, wa-da-da-da-da-dang, listen to my nine millimeter go BANG!:D
Your wife will definately have the advantage with that gun....the badguy will either be pukeing his guts out or laughing so hard he will be doubled over in pain and either condition will be difficult to shoot in.
