It's my 3913LS, maybe next week when I get my CS9 that will be the new king of the hill. I've owned probably 20-25 9mm. The glock 19 is nice, as is the Hi power and HK USP9C. I just like thin in a carry gun and the 3913 has that, the cs9 should be more of a good thing.

I'm sure there are nicer guns out there. I've even handled and fired a couple like the USP that I definitely felt were "better" than my Bersa, but right now the Bersa Thunder 9 Ultra Compact is my favorite 9mm, because it's the one I have, and it was very affordable, and despite the fact that there are "nicer" 9mm handguns out there, I don't think there's one out there that offers a better value at the Bersa's price (about $300 new for mine).

It's DA/SA. The DA pull is smooth and not too heavy. It's accurate. The controls are easy to operate. The grip feels right. It's one of the most reliable semiauto handguns I own. My Bersa Thunder 9 Ultra Compact and my HS2000 (same Croatian pistol as the XD9) have never failed to feed with a wide variety of ammo. My brand new Springfield Armory 1911, by contrast, is the pickiest gun I own.

You may wonder why I picked the Bersa Thunder 9 UC over my HS2000/XD9 as my favorite 9mm. They're both excellent, but I prefer the Bersa as a carry weapon because it's more compact, and because I prefer to carry the decocked Bersa rather than the striker-fired HS2000/XD9. I know that striker fired pistols like the Glock and XD are "safe," but it's a matter of personal preference for me.

Also, they're fairly inexpensive used and you don't have to drink any Kool-Aid.

Beretta 92fs it is mine house and range gun now since we went to sigs for duty quite awhile ago. I'm playing with the ideal of getting a small 9mm to replace my 642 that i carry off duty if and when i do I guess it will become my fav. just not sure what I want yet.

For me, it has to be my Sig 226 West German 1989. Served many years as my bedside go-to gun. It is a fantastic blend to comfort and shootability. Too bad Sigs of that era tend to exhibit rust.


It's been retired since 1996, it was replaced with a USP .40.

You might consider having it hard chromed, if it isn't too far gone. Unlike nickel and automobile chrome, hard chrome is exceptionally abrasion-resistant and does quite well against corrosion, too. It'd run you, I dunno, $200 or so.

It's my only 9mm, so it's my favorite (my wife has a Sig 226 and I like that, too).

I really love this pistol: easy to maintain, reasonably accurate, fun to shoot, etc. I'll keep my 1911s, but a Glock is really hard to beat when it comes to value.

TAURUS PT92 PARABELLIUM, the only 9mm I have ever owned. I loved it. My wife left me w/ two children, I had to sell it for food for my kids. I still hold that against her. That was back in 1986. I only changed the grips to a set PACMYERS instead of the slick wooden one back then, no checkering on them. Made alot of difference in the handling and recoil. Very well balanced. I think it held fifteen rounds in the magazine + 1 in the tube. One mean looking black pistol.:evil:

In a gunshop a while back, I happened upon a Star Mod 30MI for about $235 or so. It looked good and, even though I had never shot one, I bought it. Man, am I impressed!

It's DA/SA, 15+1, 9MM. It's also built very heavily. Since I carry a P3AT or a Makarov, I didn't buy the Star for carry, but for a house or range gun. It's a double tap monster! Due to its mass, recoil is slight and accuracy is wonderful. It never jams on me, the sights are great and it's very easy to strip down. It has magazine and ambi safeties & the most aggressive magazine release I've ever experienced.

Now, I haven't shot every 9MM out there but I've shot a bunch; this one shoots as good as any of 'em & better than most. It's a beast that does everything just as well or better than guns costing much, much more.

I've owned, shot and thanks to extended unemployment sold a Taurus 99, hk usp, beretta 92, SIG 226 and cz-75.

CZ was the best for me personally in terms of ergonomics and smile factor while shooting.

Not 100% sure why, maybe because of the trigger, which was surprisingly good, or the thinner grips and frame, but it WORKED.
