    I currently own the following
    Glock 19
    HK P7 PSP
    Browning Hi power
    CZ 75b
    Berreta 92fs

    I am considering the following
    Sig 226, or a Kahr T9
    None of the newer polymer frame guns really interest me at all. Anything else I should be looking at to help round out my collection? Anything I should know about these two guns in particular before I decide to buy one?

    Thanks for your help

    Did you see the Boberg thread?

    Assuming you did but aren't interested, hard to go wrong with a Sig 226, in my book. Or lose the Glock and get both. Also, I'd consider a Kahr MK9.

    But I guess the better question might be, why another 9mm pistol? What have you got in the way of rimfire handguns, revolvers, rimfire rifles, centerfire rifles, shotguns, combo guns, muzzleloaders, airguns, scopes, slings, targets, shooting gear/accessories, safes, reloading gear, ammo, flashlights, watches, tools, backpacks, knives, bayos, spoting scopes, binoculars, hunting & camping gear, motorcycles, and other cool stuff? :)

    I've had a couple of the S&W 3rd generation pistols and absolutely love them. I'm down to one now, a 5906 Tactical 9mm - great gun. Fun to shoot, reliable, accurate and really easy to break down and clean. Plus, it *feels* solid and American made. Granted, it's big and heavy for a carry gun, but it's one I hope to leave to my sons. Understand that I'm a 1911 kind of guy, though. I think you can still get the 945s stainless in 9mm at Academy brand-new for about $450.

    I have a friend that has a Tanfoglio Witness in .40 S&W and really likes it - it's a take-off on the CZs and is chambered in all the good calibers. It's a good looking gun as well in the wonder finish - kind of stainless looking.

    Nice collection you got going there. As the other poster said - you can't go wrong with a Sig. I haven't tried the Kahr but I've tried Sigs before and they've all been great shooters. At this point, you may want to consider rifles or a revolver. I'm always amazed at how accurate those wheel guns are.

    I only have one 9MM. A BHP. If I had to get another it would probably be a Sig 226. Unless of course $$$$$ then a S&W 5906.

    I really like my Sig P-226. Money was a consideration, so I got a police trade-in. It's holster worn and hails from the days of "Made in West Germany." This honey's recoil is modest and she's as accurate as you could hope to get. A true delight to own and shoot.

    I think you should get a Springfield 1911. Please don't get an XD.

    of course the smith&wesson 99 is a great buy (Walther p99 only cheaper, exactly the same gun)

    What's wrong with the XD? I've got one, and a Glock too. Both are great guns, accurate, and reliable. In all reality, they are so much alike it's scary. Or cool.

    Maybe a 9mm 1911? They're not polymer...or a 945 like FM-793 posted earlier.

    Brother, you haven't lived until you've at least shot a Walther P5 or a Walther P88. Of course, shooting them isn't as much fun as owning them ... just so that you can take them out for a test-drive any time you like. The P5 can be picked up at SOG these days for under $400, and you can't do better in a 9mm, IMO, at any price.

    I agree with Quak, 9mm 1911 would be very cool.

    You have a nice taste in guns man, (the glock can go though :)) I have to insist on Sig 226, that would be a perfect next choice

    Sigma or a M&P. Both are S&W.

    1911 in 9mm are really sweet to shoot. Very soft recoil and there are single and double stack versions to choose from.

    You already have a CZ, so I'm a little reluctant to recommend a Baby Desert Eagle since it's technically a knockoff of the CZ. But I must admit I LOVE mine and everyone who's fired it has gone out and bought one. I would sincerely recommend the Baby Desert Eagle 9mm. This gun is stupidly accurate and the heavy frame makes shot-to-shot recovery amazing. It's heavy enough to put the kick in the range of a 22LR.

    Keep in mind it IS heavy, but ten rounds in the black at 25yds with mediocre concentration is amazing. You almost don't have to aim - just point and fire. Finish isn't the greatest, but it bangs the gong like it's fightin' back.

    I called RoBar to see about getting it finished and accurized. I asked the person on the phone if I could do anything to mine to make it more accurate, and they laughed heartily and said "no, that gun's just fine as is".
