    Don't see why you'd have to baby the Hi Power - mine certainly hasn't been babied in the 67 years since it was made!

    I don't own an M&P, so can't really comment on that one. I do own the other two and I like them both quite a lot and would have a hard time choosing between them. You really can't go wrong with either the CZ 75B (and variants) or the Beretta 92 series.

    Take a look at the S&W SD 9MM Tactical.
    I have one and it is the "cat's meow"!

    If you have a BHP the obvious choice is the CZ. I have a 85 Combat (ambi controls and better trigger) and love it.

    A CZ 75B will feel very much like a Hi-Power in your hand so that's a plus in terms of familiarity and ergonomics.

    Of those three I take the CZ but I'd rather have the Sig 226.

    My next 9mm will be something small and light for carry. I like what I carry now, but there might be times when I want a few more rounds.

    Voted for the M&P among the given choices-
    I did just pick up a Walther P99 in 9, had one in .40 for 5 years.
    Like them both a lot.

    Already have an M&P, but would like to add a gun that would fit in with Shipwreck's collection.

    I had a Beretta 92 Gov. Issued for 3 years and liked it so I now own a Taurus PT 92. I love the PT 92 due to the minor changes over the one I carried. Fit and finish might be a tad better on the Beretta however if needed I can fix that myself but don't feel the need.

    Now it would be on of the CZ line for sure since I also own an Witness version built by Armscor that I love to shot.

    Already have a 92fs but of your choices I'd go for another 92, but this time I'd get a railed model.

    CZ75b and variants. There are a couple that will make good carry guns. The Kadet conversion kit only adds to the desirability.

    92fs Inox. One of the best looking guns out there IMHO.

    I do not own a S/W M&P, so maybe I am uninformed as to which is better.

    However, I do own a Turk made Beretta 92f. I also own the Tanfoglio Force/Carry/Police.

    The CZ/Tan points better than anything I have ever owned. Having said this, I really, really like the Berretta design and platform. Never a single problem what-so-ever. Recoil is not a factor at all. Very easy 2nd shot placement.

    If I didn't have any 9mms I would get the M&P. In absolute terms I like it the best. Me personally however I would get the Beretta. I have always wanted to own one just because it is kind of an iconic gun.

    For range and occasional open carry any of them will do.

    You could get one of the Turkish clones and if you shop hard for a used M&P and be reasonably close to the price of a new Beretta (of course then you need two sets of mags, two holsters, two sets of mag pouches etc). I find used M&Ps occasionally for $400 but usually a little more.

    I own ten 9mm handguns, and none of them are on your list. However I have shot all of them and I like the Beretta the best. CZ 75s are good, but I have seen a few jam at the range. And for a carry gun I am not comfortable with the trigger design of the M&P, though I do see you can now buy them with a safety.
