    Ok so I have decided that my next firearm shall be a high cap 9mm and have narrow it down to a few choices in my price range ($300-$400)... some of these in the higher price range I will be looking to buy used.

    Ruger P95
    CZ 75
    SIG P2022
    Taurus 92
    Bersa Thunder Pro HC

    EDIT: Had to add one... the website best9mm.com remind me of it, at one time I was look at it as well and don't really know why I stray.

    I have narrow it down to these which I plan to try shooting all of them before deciding but not sure I will be able to find all of them for rent at a range. Was hoping to get some additional feedback from y'all on here.
    Thanks!

    Everyone needs to own at least one high cap 9mm glock.

    A used well loved g17 is my vote

    CZ75, can't go wrong with one of the best 9mms of all time.

    Out of the ones listed I would go for the CZ75. Accurate, reliable, slim and good ergonomics. Whats not to like?

    All 4 of those are great guns. I actually have them all except the Sig. To me the CZ is the most accurate, but I find it akward to rack the slide. The Ruger just plain works, but is kind of chunky. The PT92 would get my vote as the best overall.

    Don't know what all you own now but hate um or not ... every stable should have at least one Block!

    A G17, G19, even a G26 will store up into 33+1 / 34 rounds of 9mm boolits :evil:

    All three around me are $475 to $500 new.

    Of those four my pick would be the CZ, no question.

    If you can get a CZ-75B then I'd get that. If you can't find a B in your price range then I'd get the Ruger P95 over the original CZ-75.

    Nothing wrong with the SIG, but it's a polymer DA/SA gun. The P95 is every bit as good a gun but $75 less.

    The Taurus, well, is a Taurus. Don't get me wrong they're mostly fine and judged individually I don't think they're that bad, but I just don't think there's anything stand-out about them that would make me take them over the other guns on the list.

    What about the low profile slide on the CZ? Does it make it harder to work the slide?

    The P95 really gets my attention just because of the price range... however I do prefer the weight of a metal gun.

    I have owned the taurus, I have a ruger p95 and I have 3 czs. First place goes to the czs, second to the ruger and third to the taurus. All three are reliable. Accuracy wise the czs win hands down and they are the most ergonomic. The ruger is my home defense pistol and I sold the taurus because to me it was nothing special. Mark

    The Taurus is my least favorite... The SIG I put on the list mainly cause of the name but I guess its really the higher end SIGS that have made the name.

    I remember after buying my XD I was flipping through a gun book and saw the CZ 75 and thought "Thats what I should of gotten..." well here I am again looking for a full size pistol, this time the CZ is on the list.

    Can anyone give me more info on the CZ and its EAA clones? Is the slide really that hard it can't be much slimmer of a slide than my P3AT, which I am sure the springs are stiffer but still can't be that bad can it? The XD was a pain to rack but then again never was broke in...

    Some people have trouble with the CZ75 slide because it rides inside the frame, so there's a little bit less to grab. I've handled/fired a few and never really had trouble manipulating the slide.

    My witness is easy to rack the slide. I spent $460 for the 9/22 combo.

    When I had my CZ-75 I had no issues with racking the slide.

    Of all the ones you listed, I'd say that the CZ has the most potential for growth as, with some work, it will have the best trigger of those guns (by far) and can have a trigger that rivals guns several times its cost. The CZ 75 platform is also very reliable and accurate, not to mention comfortable to hold and shoot so... yeah, I'd go with the CZ. :)

    Exactly what Railroader said in post 13. I've owned "P" series Rugers and Tauri.

    CZ for sure.

    CZ 75 would be my choice from the guns in your list.

    Second-hand CZ or second-hand Glock. They are about as different as two hi-cap 9mm pistols can be, but both are superb.

    Out of your list I would recommend the SIG SP2022. They have a great trigger right out of the box. Mine goes along to the range with me every single time along with my P226 and for me they are wonderful shooters. I prefer my SP2022 over my Sons CZ 75 SP01. My SP2022, like my other P sereis SIGs, gave never given me a single problem. I have about 1300 rounds through my SP2022 now.

    As ALWAYS is is best to try out whatever you are considering and choose what shoots best for you.

    But the witness(full size) has the option of expandability. You want a 40sw down the road, justpurchase the slide. Witness has a multitude of slides available. I think its .22, 38super, 40sw, .45 and 10mm and ofcourse 9mm

    My personal preference would be between the CZ and the Taurus. The PT92 is a copy of one of the best 9mils ever made. I've never personally shot one. My expierence with other taurus's has been good. Most people will say they are hit or miss. But I don't believe everything I read on the Internet.

    CZ's are great guns. The 75 reminds me of a slimmer slightly less smooth in operation 92fs, but superb none the less.

    If I were you, I would actually shoot one of each. It's easy to judge a gun. But everyone likes different things. And unless you've actually thrown lead down range with it, you will have to decide what YOU like best. Handling and dryfiring are not the same as shooting.
