    Well good God, you didn't give us anything to direct with. Is it target work, home defense, concealed carry, open carry, etc. Easiest thing to do is start with all the guns you can think of, HK, SIG, FN, Glock, CZ, Beretta, SA, S&W, etc, and try to fire as many as you can, or at least handle them.

    From your original list, narrow down to what you like, what handles well, and what you can afford.

    I don't know what exactly you are looking for, but I will say get a Glock :D But seriously, if you want a 9mm and you already have a P220, why not get another Sig? A P226/228/229/239 whatever fits your needs.

    I like Glocks in 9mm and Sigs in 9mm. I recommend the Sig 228.

    As Setzer77 says - go try 'em on. I personally love the IDEA of a Glock, and can shoot one pretty well (I've rented 'em frequently over the years) but they just don't feel right in my hand, so I've never bought one. For ME, nothing FEELS better in my hand than my Browning Hi Power with a Hogue grip. It's what I use for IDPA. The CZ 75 feels about the same and is double action, and if I ever decide to change competition classes I'd look pretty hard at one of those. But that's just me - you have to find your own favorite.

    yeah you really didn't give us much to work with so i will give a few and maybe later you can give us some more info on what your needs are. the following should be perfect for about everything you might need one for.
    sa xd
    glock 19/17 etc.
    sig dak trigger
    h&k p2000 lem trigger
    s&w m&p

    as you can see i like dao type handguns, but there are plenty great other models out there that are da/sa as well as single action.

    browning hp
    sig non dak models
    h&k usp and other models non lem
    ruger kp95

    those are a few but that should be plenty tp get you started. i suggest that you go somewhere feel all over em and the ones you like take em out and rent em if you can, heck rent and shoot all of em.

    More...info...needed! There are a ton of quality 9mm guns to pick from. Just about every reputable manufacturer makes a great 9mm, but they each have their strengths and possible disadvantages. What are you looking for in a gun? A list of criteria would help immensely.

    Glock 17 if you are able to conceal a large pistol.

    Glock 26 if you need to conceal it in thin attire.

    I am really happy with my CZ 75 Compact (satin nickle) 9mm.:D

    Another recommendation of the most wonderfully balanced handgun of all time

    The SIG-SAUER P228~! ;):D

    +1 Ruger P95, P89
    -1 Taurus 24/7
    +1 CZ - my next auto will be a CZ75, or a Jericho 941 (CZ derived, Cowboy Bebop fan...) if I can find one for decent $.

    How about a nice 9mm 1911?

    Oh no, you've opened up Pandora's 9mm Box. This thread will go to 9 pages if you don't severely narrow down your criteria here VERY soon...

    You have a ton of choices here. Are you looking for a conceal carry, mid size, or full size?

    wow thanks for all the responses; i'll try to narrow things:

    bhp-nice but similar platform as my supermatic; wouldn't want to carry it c & l

    228-for sure --if i could find one-- for less than the price of a car

    xd-it does fit; need more pros and cons

    beretta 92- never

    taurus-:barf: mho

    1911- this is a target range gun for me- i am not comfortable with c & l for carry; that's for my 220

    i would like more info on the new "gidgited" triggers;

    this gun would be range recreation and maybe carry
