    I am in need of some advice. I am a nine millimeter fan and have slowly been consolidating my collection from wheel guns into 9mm autoloader of superb reliability and shoot ability.

    So far I have Done well to create a well rounded collection:

    I have a Kahr CW9 and M&P 9c to fill the small carry gun category. both have performed flawlessly for me and better half.

    I have also acquired a Glock 19 and springfield XD service model in 9mm, again flawless and utterly pleasant to shoot.

    now I have one last smith ans wesson I am about to sacrifice to the 9mm bug, and I find myself wondering what full size gun do i want, or more importantly which will follow in the footsteps of my earlier, and extremely reliable nine but in the full size category.

    thinking about the venerable sig 226. or beretta M9/92FS but am open to any and all suggestions

    Just look at my signature line -- any (or all) of those 9mm's would serve you well.

    If you had to prioritize, I'd say the CZ 75, Beretta PX4 and Beretta M9/92FS.

    If you already have a G19 and are looking for yet another awesome 9mm, I can't help but mention the CZ 75B and Sig P226. Maybe even the P-01/SP-01 too. There are other fine choices of course, including the Baby Desert Eagle and USP/P2000, but the 75B and 226 would be at the top of my list.

    I have a Glock 19 and a CZ 75. Both are great, but the CZ is my favorite shooter. If you are putting together a group of nines, a CZ is a must.

    While we are on the 9m/m Smith N' Wesson subject- don't forget to add the most beautiful single stack 9m/m ever made to your collection. :uhoh:

    And, that would be the S&W model 39-2~! But you had better hurry up, as
    these things are gett'in more scarce with each passing day~! :eek:;)

    Now, on to the SIG-SAUER/SIGARMS P226; good gun if you like the European
    style grip angle~? :D

    I'm a 9mm fan as well. I own a full size M&P and it has been a fine shooter. Bud's has them for $439 right now. I also own a CZ, Beretta 92 Elite II, Smith 6906, they are all great guns. I just got in a Taurus 24/7 Pro 9mm that has shot well. I have only shot 200 rds. thru it though. I like the grip angle and the price is cheap. I say either the 24/7 or M&P would be a great addition.
    Good Luck

    I own Glocks and Ruger 9's, but a few weeks ago a bought a Beretta 92FS. I keep asking myself why did I wait so long to buy one. Pops

    I have four of the five mentioned, and would consider any of them top notch combat pistols. The Baby Ealge has the most use, with only 7 failures in nearly 16,000 rounds. I'm confident that others will bear similar numbers.

    I'd look into a H&K P7 PSP while they are available and relatively cheap. These previously hard to get guns are all over the place now due to the "Saxony Dump" and getting very good reviews for finish. $700 gets a good one.

    One you don't hear much about is the Kahr T9. A very nice shooting gun IMHO.

    I'd want to fondle and inspect a Stoeger Cougar. Good build quality and a unique rotary recoil system.

    In the new category check out the brand new H&K P30. Maybe the new Ubber 9mm?

    Looks like you have some polymer frame 9mm's and an aluminum frame 9mm.

    you want a steel frame 9mm to round it out properly.

    HP or CZ, either one is a good choice.

    I have a P226ST which would be a good choice.....the only problem being is that these aren't made anymore so you'd have to go the used/CPO route. There are new Elite stainless models too, but more expensive.

    A gun that is intriguing me now is the Glock 34. This is a longslide model, and brings the gun up to be about the same lenght as a 1911. But it holds 17 rounds in the standard configuration, and is set up more for a competition gun with it's features.

    Look for an old W.German stamped slide P226. You won't regret it.
    If not that, a CZ75 or a Beretta 92 Inox :evil:

    So many FINE choices.

    I love my Hi Power - both of 'em. Classic elegance, awesome accuracy and dead nuts reliability with a history. No collection is complete without one. I like mine best with Hogue grips.

    BUT - I lust for a CZ after shooting one at a manufacturers' day at our range last summer. Probably one with a decocker, full size or compact, haven't decided.

    AND - I really liked the M&P. Full size or compact, haven't decided.

    SIG double stacks and Beretta 92 are too big for my hand, so they're not on MY list, but are reliable classics you should at least consider.

    PLUS - the P7 PSP is indeed a bargain not to be passed up, as it will not last much longer and typical squeeze cocker prices historically nudge 4 figures.

    THEN - well, you get the point. (Things will go much easier for you if you recognize that the next one will NOT be the last one - that will take a lot of the pressure off. :) )

    thanks guys.

    So far it looks like i should buy a hi-power, a cz,a sig 226, and a beretta.

    this was suppose to help my position. When my fiance see's the bank statement I'm giving her a copy of this thread and letting her hunt you all down like dogs.


    My poor poor debit card will be sore for weeks.
