What are your favorite 9mm or .40 semiautomatic handguns? I like the cz-75 and the Jericho 941; followed by the beretta m9.

CZ-75 and Browning Hi-Power are mine. BTW, both are good guns to train women on. Recoil is mild and smaller grip feels comfortable to them. One advantage of the CZ is the Kadet conversion kit. Same frame, different and affordable caliber.

All of them, but the only one I own (because it perfectly filled a "void") is the Springfield XD9 SC.

I've got a CZ 75D PCR, and the Kadet kit is one of the best parts about it. The PCR has never malfunctioned on me, and the grip design of the CZ is about perfect for me. I also really love my FNP-9M. Another flawless performer, but with a smoother trigger than the awful gritty CZ feel.

Sig P239 SAS Gen 2, absolutely love both the look and feel. I like the 226 as well in 9mm, in theory my favorite variant is the Blackwater Tactical, however I haven't actually gotten my hands on that particular variant to shoot it yet. Looks sweet though.

While there are a number of different make/model 9mm pistols out there which I've used and like well enough, the ones which I've wanted to own and carry for off-duty (and now retirement) usage make for a rather short list.

3913
SW99c
CS9
G26

Someday I'd like to add a LNIB 6906 to that list, simply because I carried at least a couple of them as issued weapons over the years and fired a few ten's of thousands of rounds through a couple of them.

If I were interested in 'collectible' or otherwise fancy semiauto handguns, or was interested in carrying full-size 9mm pistols, my list would be somewhat different, but I'm not ...

My SIG P229 for now. I just bought a Witness Match that hopefully will be equally well liked. Here is the SIG and the Witness:

Why? the PPS is slim, cool, with the 8 cap mag fits the hand, has a high grip...so light I hardly notice it's on my hip.

for anything larger...I prefer the .40 S&W for its ballistics, though modern 9mm is almost as good.

For the .40 I have the HK P2000sk with X-Grip and Big Dot night sights, and just recently, the SIG P250c with tritium night sights.

The HK is probably the best made handgun, 100% reliable, German, expensive, worth it.

The SIG is too new for me to comment about, about as well made as the HK but it is mechanically revolutionary, a technical tour de force. It is closer to a hi cap 1911 profile, yet with modern materials and greatly reduced parts count. And of course, DAO is my way. Safety above all.

For backup, the 380 Ruger LCP w DPX.

Shadow 7D
October 4, 2009, 01:43 AM
Shot a number of nines, they are nice, but when it came to buying my gun, I got a .40, then again it might have been because the only XD tactical they had was in .40, just felt right, and still does to this day. .45 are ok, haven't really shot a bunch, 10mm are a stretch for my hand, ie cant drop the mag one handed, and in the end it's about the ergos and accuracy, both nines and .40 do very well in those departments.

I've got a Kel-Tec p40, manufactured P40, not conversion kit, that I have yet to shoot, I understand that it's one of the guns that will teach you if limp wrist or not... Something to show that .40 can be snappier than 9mm, really got it because it was a great buy I'd be stupid to pass and in a caliber I already own (very big).

Favorite .40 for the range is my Springfield P9. It's true a good compensator goes a long way.

Favorite .40 for carry is my Sig P229. Thousands of rounds through it and not a single malfunction of any kind.

The CZ 75 SA is my favorite 9mm. Best features from CZ and BHP.

I would like to try the Sig 226 though.

9mm is my favorite caliber because the pistols I like best are chambered for it. THere are not nearly as many options in 45 as for 9mm unless you think different colors of 1911s mean different pistols.

I like in this order: Browning Hi Power, HK P7, Beretta 92, Glock 19, CZ 75 Pre B model.

Wow, S&W has really rehabilitated the Sigma! A three or four years ago it was hard to find anyone with anything good to say about them, and now several are shown proudly in photos as favorites.

They are an outstanding gun for the price, my pair (one 9mm the other .40S&W) have both been 100% reliable out of the box. They feel really good in my hand but aren't a favorite because of the trigger. Coming from a 1911 the Sigma trigger is horrible, but if coming from a revolver the Sigma trigger is a pretty good approximation to what you are used to.

If I had to pick a favorite 9mm or .40, it'd be the Beretta Steel-1.

Here is mine in .40S&W:

So my favorite .40 is a S&W M&P, and thats why I picked it as my carry gun. However I really do like the XD and to some extent the glock. However after shooting the PX4 I don't imagine buying either an XD or a Glock, until I have one of those.
