    Glock 17, around 450-500 new, around 350-400 used.

    Just my .02,

    P.S. You are opening a big can of worms starting a thread like this, but it should be fun :).

    Glock 17, 19, followed by Sig, HK Beretta IMHO.

    New Glock 17, 19 $400-$500 New or a little less used.

    Glock 19. IME the best of Glock's range and a testament to simplicity and sound design.I shoot some other pistols better and think many are better looking and better made,but the 19 _works_ and that's what counts most.

    I have Sig (X3),Beretta,S&W,Browning and Ruger 9mms as well and _ALL_ of them are good guns.All of them are reliable and easy to shoot,what truly separates them comes down to mostly subjective elements and even then,it's almost impossible for me to say that my G19 is actually _better_ than the P226 or P239 or S&W 3913. I honestly don't think that it is better in measurable ways,just that if I had to only have one, it's the one I'd pick.

    Yeah, "best" is pretty open to interpretation.


    I'm voting Browning Hi Power.

    SIG 210? North of $2k

    But as others have pointed out... Best... what mean you by "Best"?

    the best 9mm

    :neener: Browning P-35 $$$, CZ 75 $350-$450. The only 9mm a man needs. All the rest we buy to irritate the wife.:cuss:

    Best as in most accurate? Off the top of my head, I'd say the 210, 952, P7M8, and even the X5 should all be in the running.

    I read best as: The most reliable, durable, combat-accurate, easy-to-maintain pistol...

    or in other words...

    a Glock

    Glock 19 for carry

    Cant get any better IMHO, especially for the money.

    Best 9mm ever

    Glock, since they are my favorites.

    But I have heard that the Sig 210 was the top of the line 9mm.

    To each their own.

    Gaston Glock hit one out of the park with the 9mm Glock design. I have the 17, 19, and 26, and they are, currently, the only 9mm pistols I own. If I buy another it will be a dupe of one of the three I already have.

    i would say that the glock 19 and 17 series would be the best. that might change in the future, when other guns have been around as long. but glock has been going strong for a long time. though the glock is probally the best there are many others in my opinion that will do the trick just right i believe there can be only one best, but gun makers are doing a really great job of making guns that are great and many have the oppurtunity to be the best. ie sa xd, s&W m&P, h&k, etc.

    CZ P-01 or CZ75. More accurate, safer to operate and better looking than a Glock anyday. :neener:

    The usual answer for that, based on workmsnship, durability, and extreme accuracy, is the SIG P-210. Costs over $2,000 usually, when you find one in the USA.

    But is is NOT the most practical. Some can't operate the safety well in a firing grasp, and the magazine release is in the butt. Capacity is just eight shots.

    Practically, I'd go with the CZ-75/85 or the Star M-30. The Browning Hi-Power is also good, but wears out sooner if shot a lot with hot ammo.

    I would have to say a Sig 228 or Sig 226 because the are some of my favorites. It really depends on what you define best as.
