No question in my mind; I've tried a lot and these are what feel good:

1) Colt Combat Commader
2) S&W 3913/908

They aren't piggy large for the caliber in my opinion, and they shoot nicely, balance, and conceal well. The S&W doesn't have the finest trigger, but it's a great, simple, practical design.

My favorite 9mm of all time:

I'll admit I haven't shot a lot of them. I've shot a couple Beretta M92FSs and a Taurus clone. Never cared for the Italian pistol. But I love my Glock 19. It's smaller, lighter, and simpler than the 92, but has the same firepower. Mine has been 100% reliable, has a better trigger than any 92 I've ever shot or handled, and doesn't have the bass-ackwards slide-mounted upswept safety.

I like the CZs. A P-07 Duty is at the top of the very short list of non-Glock 9mms I want, the other being that new SAO Sig P226.

Glock 19, still the best shooter I own. And I would take one over any 9mm on the market. But there are plenty of other good ones. It's just to me the 19 is the best combination of size, comfort, reliability, simplicity, accuracy, with concealibility if you need it.

Tough choice! It would be either my HK P30S or my Browning Hi-Power. As they are now the P30S probably wins. If I ever have the coin to send my BHP to C&C to get some work done (add beavertail, etc) then the BHP might edge out the P30S.

November 5, 2013, 08:34 AM
The best shooting and most dependable 9mm I own is a Hi Point C9 I bought for less than $100 a few years ago. Everyone always laughs until they run a few mags through it and then they invariably look at the gun and laugh again. LEO's are the worst because they consider them to be "ugly ghetto guns" but they all like the way this one shoots. I had a Sheriff's deputy that was having trouble with a his Glock and he fell in love with the Hi Point until he found out how many rounds it holds. It is an awesome shooter and, aside from some issues with a new magazine that I had to work on, has been flawless. It is big, ugly and holds ridiculously few rounds for it's size but it does what every firearm should do and that is go bang every time.
My favorite that I own is a CZ. Beautiful and smooth. The best I ever shot was a Browning Hi Power but I don't actually own one of those.

After thirty-plus years, and a dozen or more 9mm handguns (including a G19), I am down to an "only" 9mm....my Kahr PM9.
Currently considering a Kimber Solo or a Rohrbaugh...but not in a big hurry.
The PM9 has been serving me well for almost nine years now, and it really isn't broke...

Of course, if I still had my HK P7M13, I probably would not have sold it. But regrets are a dime a dozen....and honestly, it was not a viable carry pistol. Just a "keeper" handgun.

Tough decision, many choices. There are several Sigs, FNs, and HKs I want, but its hard to beat the Glock 17 for reliability, accuracy, and fairly cheap cost. The others mentioned are far more expensive, and are worth it in my own opinion, but the Glocks 17, (26 and 19 also) are tough to beat for the $$$.

Very interesting thread. It's great to hear we have so many great 9 mms out there! I have only owned 3 9mms. Nothing wrong with the Beretta 92F but my son talked me out of it and traded me a Glock 36 .45. I'm happy with it.
First pick is my Glock 26

They are both reliable, accurate easily concealed. The Glock will take a bigger variety of mags. I have 10, 12 17. The Kahr is 7 or 8. The take down is simpler for the Glock. I like the Kahr with the CT laser. I also like the fact that both can use the same IWB Kydex holster, which my son made me.

CZ 75 BD Police

Loved the Browning High Power but not fond of the "Cock n Lock" carry. The BD natural aim, accurate, dependable, feels great in my hand just like the BHP, allows DA carry and a decocker to safely lower the hammer afterwards. There is only a couple things that I can say I wish were different.

Those things are its' serrated trigger which after a 100 or so rounds found my trigger finger was getting raw so I found a smooth combat trigger for it and am currently having it installed. The second things is the empties on mine when they eject like to bounce off my forehead :cuss:

Other then those two things a great pistol

A few years back I decided that even though I am a revolver lover,,,
I wanted to own just one high quality 9mm Semi-auto pistol.

I belong to a very nice Rifle & Pistol club,,,
Many of the members allowed me to shoot their 9-mils.

Seeing as how I was in no hurry to purchase one for myself,,,
I also went to a range and rented several more guns.

I shot all of the major brands such as Sig, Glock, S&W, and even Browning,,,
I also shot many of the second tier guns such as the EAA imports,,,
Then one day a gentleman placed a CZ-75B in my hands,,,
One mag later I knew my search was over.

When he handed it to me,,,
Angelic music wafted through the morning air,,,
The clouds parted and a warm ray of sunshine bathed my hand,,,
The initial sensation was akin to shaking hands with a dear old acquaintance.

The pistol levitated my hand to a perfect angle,,,
I addressed the target and the bullets flew to the center,,,
The recoil of the Czech lady was like a gentle caress to my tired old hands.

Needless to say I hit The Evil Pawn Shop at the first opportunity,,,
I placed my order for the 9mm and the .22 LR Kadet,,,
Now I have what I consider to be the finest 9mm,,,
And a rimfire companion for inexpensive plinking.

http://aarondgraham.com/pics/czechs2.jpg

The CZ-75B may not be every man's ideal pistol,,,
But I find it to be perfect for me.

Anyone in the market for a full size duty weapon,,,
Would be doing themselves a favor to handle one of these beauties.

Just got my Beretta Px4 subcompact in 9mm last night. Cleaned and lubed, shot 50 rounds before taking it home. My Wife has not shot it yet but likes the way it points and presents much better than the Glock 26 that was our favorite child up till now.

Hands down, the Storm sc is now our favorite 9mm

The trigger felt too good to resist. It has a bit more take up in sa and da than I'd like, but not terribly noticeable when actually shooting it. The trigger reset is crisp enough that I know when to stop so I don't let it out all the way, but I'd still like to get rid of the take up and lighten it up a bit. I went to buy an STI Spartan in 9mm, but it was sold so this followed me home.

Mostly plastic pistols, led by Glock. 1911s of all descriptions. A lot of Ruger (DAs & SAs) .22s, but not as many as before the "GREAT" ammo shortage." Heck, I've seen more Kahrs than Hi-Powers.

Favorites full sized:

Astra A-100. I've never had a bad Astra gun, and the A-100 I recently sold was very cheap and 100% reliable. Made nearly 100% profit on it when I sold it!
Beretta 92FS, really regret selling it, so smooth.
Tanfoglio "Mossad", a few scratches on it, and messed up grips, but it shoots great. A little sandpaper and varnish will have it looking real good.
Sig 226, shot a friends, have wanted one since.
CZ SP-01, wished they made it in SS.
S&W 5906, one of the greats.

Compacts:
Astra A-75, great all steel little gun.
CZ PO1-It's just right.
Tanfoglio "Mossad", same as it's big brother, some scratches, and the grips are better than on the big one. It shoots as good as the P01 in every way.
S&W 3913, I wish I had kept it. Made too much money on it not to sell it.

Not only are you a SIG fan but a CZ fan as well...done, sir! Would choose a West German P228 as my #1 9mmP as they are incredibly-engineered, incredibly-reliable, high-capacity pistols with superior metallurgy and internal fit&finish.

That said, my CZ BD PCR is almost as accurate as my 9mm SIGs [so close!] and really easy to carry, usually in the same leather holsters.

I've tried to adopt a later model H&K many, many times...but just can't get over that trigger flex. Drives me nuts trying to compensate and hope for a clean break.

That said, when working on my property, my carry most of the time is a P-11 Kel-Tec with nearly 3k round thru it. Has been imminently reliable...and if something untoward happens [that is, if it's lost during bush-hogging] it has paid its fare many times over.

Would very much like to see someone start a similar thread dedicated to .357SIG...could be the ultimate pistol caliber ever developed in the intermediate bore.

Although that P-38 and holster were manufactured in 44 the holster is not original to that pistol. The pistol is my Dad's bring back, the holster I found on ebay.

When I got it from Dad the firing pin in it was wrong and the decocker was worn out and had issues of the slam fire type but I've corrected that stuff. It's a reliable once a year shooter for me now.

You know, while I am not deeply in love with CZ pistols, having shot a couple I will happily agree that they are good guns. With that said, and conceding its maybe a regional quirk or just my own luck, I rarely see them out on the range or in holsters. I don't really get that, but it's true.

Probably just me, but I have wondered about that more than once.

Nice to see someone appreciates the P6! Probably the best grip size Sig in my hands. I've got 4 of them, this clean late production '98 being my favorite.
