I'm getting a 9mm pistol for self defense. At the moment, the following are my considerations: Browning Hi Power (fixed sights, black grips model) CZ75b H&K USP 9mm Glock 19 (gen3) Concerns: Glock 19 and USP: I think it's important for a combat pistol to be able to be fired reliably even with a weakened grip in case of injury in a self defense situation. I know the Glock is very susceptible to limp wristing, and I'm concerned about that, and the USP for the same reason. I know you can limp wrist any pistol, but polymer frames seem to be more likely to. Anyone got any input on this? Browning Hi Power: How is the reliability on this handgun? I've had bad luck with 1911's and reliability. Also, I require to be able to practice occasionally with +p and +p+ loads, and carry them. I've heard the Hi Power, even modern ones, aren't supposed to be shot with high pressure rounds. What kind of life expectancy can I expect? CZ75b: I love this pistol. But I've read a lot of reports of the frame cracking (something to do with the slide stop getting battered and puts concentrated stress on the frame?). One requirement of the self defense pistol I'm getting is that it needs to have a long service life. Can anyone give me information and maybe put my concerns to rest on one or some of these pistols?
