    I have been building a collection of 9mm pistols, and was wondering what else would be good to add to it.

    So far;
    Sig P226
    Sig SP2009
    Sig P239
    CZ 75b
    Desert Eagle
    HK USP
    Glock 17
    Glock 19
    S&W 459
    Taurus PT92
    Taurus PT111
    Browning BDM
    Walther P1
    Norinco 213
    Ruger P89

    I still plan to get;
    Browning high power
    Beretta 92 ( I have one but I don't shoot it. 20 years of M9 in display case)
    Luger

    and just for fun I have;
    Uzi pistol
    Mac 10 ( MPA 30)
    Tec 9
    AAArms AP9

    Nothing comes to mind except perhaps a Taurus 24/7 OSS. Strangely, I like the idea of having a 9mm with a 5 1/4" barrel. Oh, of course you can never go wrong with a K-series Kahr.

    I must ask about your Browning BDM. What do you think of it (accurate, dependable)? I believe that's quite possibly one of most aesthetically pleasing handguns out there. It irks me it never really took off.

    I didn't see a 1911 chambered for 9mm on your list.

    I like the BDM, it does feel good in the hand. I don't shoot it as well as some of the others though. It is dependable. I think the thing that killed it was the fact that it was introduced just before the ban so most magazines for it are only 10 round. 15s are expensive and hard to find. With a 15 round mag it is possibly the thinest high cap pistol ever made. It would be great for carry. I only have 10rd mags.

    I haven't decided on the 1911 yet. I do have several in 45acp. The 1911 just seems like it should only be in 45.

    Luger is on my list to get.
    Mauser would be interesting.
    I have thought about the P99. What do you think of it?
    H&K; I don't need one of every 9mm made so the USP covers this one.
    The other Walthers would be covered if I get the P99.

    Is the XD9 any different from Glock?

    I haven't seen the SR9.

    The SR-9 was just released about a week ago-you can find info on it on Rugers web site. They released 2000 with serial numbers between 300 & 2300 with 2 mags-speed loader box & laser engraved knife. 4 to a dealer to 500 dealers. Went by a dealer in my area yesterday & he still had all 4. Unfortunately right now I can't swing it financially. But if I were going to collect one I'd try to get one of the first 2000. His price was around 489 dollars. But I think the price is varying some depending on the dealer-location

    I just noticed that you're from Shelley. I grew up outside of Rigby and attended Idaho Falls HS. Small world. Live over in the Boise area now.

    I like the P99. Before my department went to issuing Glocks to everyone there were a couple officers who carried the Walther. Not the S&W99, but the Walther. I fired them and I liked what I saw.Reliable, accurate and dependable.

    Another officer carried the S&W and she had problems. Like the sights flying off when she was qualifying once. :what:

    I can understand you not wanting everything under the sun. You have to set priorities.

    By the way ever shop at Ski's? Personally I like the little tiny gunshop in downtown IF by the Youth Ranch store. Can't remember his name, but he always has some interesting pieces.

    Alternatively, if just for collection, how about the Star BM, compact 1911 Spanish clone with a good rep. Also, just for collecting, soon to be rare, the Colt All American 2000.

    Astra model 600! Ugly, crappy sights, and heavy recoil for a full sized, all steel 9mm, thanks to the straight blowback design.Still unique and fun to shoot though....:)

    You do NEED a Star BM. Also, you need a few moon-clip wheelguns in 9mm. I just got one-an itty bitty Taurus 5-shot DAO. Interesting lil pocket gun.

    I also think a few Star's would be a nice addition; something from the "B" series and maybe a M28 or M30. And most definitely, a SIG P210, an H&K P7, and a Luger.
    But an Astra 600-fun to shoot? Not the one I had; staight blowback in a 9mm. was not my idea of fun.

    You seem to have the best ones more or less covered or soon will have.

    Nice list and collection, pics when done would be nice too.

    I had one for a short time and I did like how thin it was, but man was that one of the most inaccurate handguns I have ever owned. I think what made it hard to shoot was simply the fact that it had a horrible trigger. I was able to find hi-caps for it without too much trouble but I don't remember where. Don't make the mistake of buying a BDM thinking its a Hi-Power, I made that mistake.

    Anyway....
    My suggestion would be and XD as others have suggested, they are very different than Glocks and great guns, personally I like them more.
