    While 9mm is not my favorite caliber, somehow, in my travels, I managed to pick up quite a few. I must say my favorite is my 1935 FN Hi-Power... Single action...holds 13+1. 98% original blue finish, flap holster with xtra mag. Guy who sold it to me got it through mail order in the sixties for less than $100...I gladly gave him $250... :evil:

    Glad you found deal you found palatable. Doesn’t matter if you spent $500, if you’re happy with the purchase, what else matters? However, I’d say you did well. ;)
    I'm not overly fond of the 9mm myself, but I have more of them than any other caliber. Go figure

    I only have 1 9mm right now. A CZ 75B that I picked up used from a fellow THR member for a fair deal. But, I'm selling it to finance another gun purchase. I'll eventually be replacing it with a CZ 75B SA in .40 S&W to compliment my CZ 85 Compact and RAMI in .40 S&W.

    Interstingly enough I plan on getting another 9mm in the future. A moon clip fed Taurus 905 or S&W 840 revolver. After getting a S&W 646 I decided I really like the moon clip fed revo package and I just ordered a Taurus 455HS4 from CDNN. That was mostly paid for by selling my Taurus 669.

    I just bought 2000 9mm bullets to reload with so I guess I'll need at least one more 9mm in the future. . .

    Tough pick. I like what I shoot well, and I shoot my P7M8, Sig 226 ST, and CZ 75b Tactical about equally well (better than my BHP and Glock 19, that's for sure). The three are extremely accurate guns and I am very pleased with them. I'm just disappointed that my BHP isn't quite as accurate. Dunno why--it's got a nice crisp trigger (C&S hammer and sear, trigger job, no mag safety), and I hear the Browning barrel's supposed to be pretty good. Hmm.

    I'm not a big lover of the 9mm either. But I do have a Glock 17, just can't beat the price of 9mm ammunition. Great fun to take to the range and just blast away.

    9mm IS my favorite calliber!!
    The BHP is NOT my favorite launching platform, although I do own one.
    That would be the Glock 26 or the Kahr MK9!!

    I do like the 9mm and for defensive purposes, I think it makes the most sense.

    I currently only own two, a G17 and a XD-9 but have owned and\or shot others. For defensive purposes, I like the Glocks the best and will once again own a G19 and someday a G26 as well.

    The sweetest shooting 9mm I've shot is a Sig P226 but I'm not a fan of the DA\SA Decocking arrangement for defensive purposes. I hate Beretta 92's and wouldn't own one if it was given to me. I've never shot a Browning HP or an HK USP but would like to some day.

    I've got a Sig P-239 in 9mm and I'll be darn if I can find any faults with it. Fits my hand, accurate, good trigger, and absolutely reliable.

    I'm trying to figuret that out now. So far the most accurate 9mm I've ever shot was a CZ75B Full size. Seriously could make head shots at 25yards on a police blue silouette target....consistantly. I've tried to reproduce those results to my dismay with various other brands.

    Nickeled 39-2. Utterly reliable, and I make hits I shouldn't be able to with it, otherwise not enthralled over the design. Let over a half-dozen other 9's go over the years but kept it.

    I've owned Lugers, Astras, Radoms, Broomhandle Mauser military contracts, Llamas; but my favorite is my trusty S&W Model 39-2 in blue. I've owned it for about 27 years and is my home defense weapon. It has been utterly reliable and chews through everything I put through it including my reloads and factory. Well almost totally reliable. Last September I went through a two day defensive pistol class. On the second day the pistol went DA only, the hammer would not stay cocked, it would only go to half cock after it fired. It got sent off to S&W and after about 5 weeks and $65 it is now back. I hope to get it to the range soon to check things out. I'm still going to stay with it (as long as it functions as it did before) but I'm rethinking my defensive pistol. That first shot at DA was always high and left, I'm now thinking 1911 is a better choice for defensive pistol.

    I have two Stars, the Model 30, and the Firestar Plus, the Model 30 will last 5 life times being all steel, and shoots one hole groups, the Firestar Plus had a bad trigger, till I did a little magic on it's mag disconnecter, but a nice light compact package.
    Of course I always do a fuff and buff on the tooling marks, but they never gave me any problems.....

    My HKP7M8 edges out my SIG P225 only because the P225 double action pull.

    The best thing about the 9mm is that there are so many excellent designs chambered for it.

    My favorite 9mm handguns, in no particular order, are the HK P7M8, SIG P239, Glock 19, and Browning HP.
