    Glock 19 Gen 3. Worth about $500 give or take.

    The Navy SEALs use it and it is often considered by many to be the "perfect" 9mm pistol in terms of size and versatility. Its reliability is legendary and while its capacity is excellent at 15 rounds and is very accurate in can be easily concealed.

    Many will tell you it is the best "all purpose" 9mm in human history. I tend to agree.

    I second the Glock 19 based on extensive experience with the Glock 22.

    CZ P10c - about $500-ish. Some folks saying it's better than the G19. Time will tell. Should be shipping in decent numbers in 3-4 months.

    You suggest an unreleased and completely unproven gun that "might be" better than a Glock? Interesting. I also am interested in the P10, but Ill wait to see one before I heap it with praise.

    @ OP for me it depends on what trigger you like. For a DAO striker type, I prefer the Glock 17. For a SA/DA in that range I prefer a CZ 75.

    OP doesn't say what the gun's purpose is but, if it's for carry, I haven't met an unhappy Glock 19 owner yet. I don't carry one myself but the guys I know who do, I respect their choice.

    If it's a target gun then I'd go for the CZ 75B, I own several of them, all excellent shooters and all less than $700.

    Striker fired - Glock17 or19, Walther PPQ, SIG P320 Compact, or HK VP9. Whichever one fits you best or you shoot best.

    Hammer fired - Beretta 92FS, CZ75 something, HK P2000, or Sphinx SDP. Again whichever one fits you best or you shoot best.

    Only.40 which is available for around $600 at vendors like CDNN and Grab A Gun but OP specified 9MM. P30SK is certainly less than $700 but a subcompact though OP did not specify anything other than price strangely.

    I've had a chance to fire a RIA 1911 in 9mm.
    WOW - what a great gun.
    Recoil was VERY soft & it hit where I was aiming.

    Depends on the use?
    The same gun may excell in one thing and be crap in another. Or are you looking for a jack of all trades master of none?

    In my hands the Glock 19 is a total dog compared to the P30.

    So many great choices and different purposes for what you are asking. Everyone has their favorites. I have a G19 and I like it, but I carry Walthers....PPS and P99. Also own a PPQ which far outperforms my G19 in accuracy and general shootability. The ergos of the P99 especially, are outstanding. There are also the CZ guns. My PCR and P-01 also outshoot my G19, but are different animals being DA/SA. Then you have your full size guns like the Beretta 92 and CZ 75B. Some people like the Springfield XD. Some like M&P. Some the FNs and Steyers. There are the polymer Sigs. I'm seeing HK P30SK for less than $500 now. Many great options in that $500-$550 range.

    VP9 for $500 and change.....

    CZ 75B offers a great trigger, comfortable grip geometry, and superb accuracy. Always impresses my friends when they try it.

    Is this for carry, range, or home defense? If for all three, then the CZ-75D PCR. If for range/HD, then the CZ SP-01, or other full size CZ-75 variant.

    It depends on the purpose for the pistol. As a jack-of-all-trades, the G19 is awfully hard to beat. I love my Gen 4, but lots of shooters prefer Gen 3. If a pistol is intended for one specific use, whether CC, target, etc., there may be better choices. As to price, ~$500-ish? I haven't looked in a while.

    The Ruger SR9c, and CZ P01 work well for me at that price point.
