    You should try a Sig P228.


    Are you in some alternate universe?

    The one I shoot the best is my Browning Buck Mark, but it looks like we're talking about service pistols.

    The service pistols I like the best and shoot the best tend to be various versions of the CZ75. I got a Sig P229 recently, and that is rapidly moving towards second place.

    I have several Glocks, a Sig P238, a S & W model 36, and a Browning Buck Mark Target Pistol. My favorite Glock is the G17 gen 5. However, the one I shoot the most, is the most accurate, and enjoy shooting the most is a Browning Buck Mark .22LR target pistol.

    Sig 226 or 229 will fit your bill. 225 if you’d like a single stack. The original 225 was the P6, West German Federal Police pistol, and the gun that put Sig on the map. The new A1 version is better.

    For me, the 1911 trigger, and entire platform is fantastic. But, with a background in revolvers you may enjoy a DA/SA trigger better. Something like the Beretta 92, HK usp or the like. For budget mindedness, may also look at the Bersa thunder 9 or, while not hammer fired, the Ruger SR9C has a good trigger for a striker fired

    If you don’t like single action you might want to find a used Sig P250. Hammer fired, DAO, with a very smooth pull and well contoured grip. If you like shooting double action revolvers you’ll probably enjoy that trigger.

    There are several I shoot just for the sheer fun and joy... no work involved. They are the Beretta 92fs Vertec, (I like that grip a bit better than the normal 92 grip), the HK P2000sk because it just bonds to my hand in a special way and a new but very impressive Canik TP9sfx with a Vortex sight. My old eyes really enjoy this set up. Last but not least is my HK P7M8 because it is so unique and easy to shoot well.

    Lots of others are fun but these are the special ones.

    For me it would be the Browning High Power/FN GP-35 (even though now I generally carry Glocks or a polymer Walther).

    At one point I had four BHP's (along with a CZ-75 Compact 'Cousin'). Now I'm down to a few. Still love them, just don't want them getting messed up with daily carry.

    At the moment, my 2 favorites are the CZ P-09 and West German Sig P226.
    For carry gun, probably my Shield .45

    Try a German P226 or a new Legion. Or a German P228.

    My favorite centerfire pistols would be any 1911. That would have been the end of the list then I picked up my Canik TP9SFx with the Vortex red dot. The Canik is the best shooting polymer pistol I've ever shot. I can still shoot my 1911 pistols much better than the Canik.

    MY Springfield "Loaded" 9mm 1911,
    1911 in general.
    Maks are fun for an inexpensive gun.

    Well, the way I read the OP, seems he's asking about our favorite full-size 9mm pistols to shoot ... So in that case, for me, it's gotta be (currently) the masterpiece SIG P-226 Legion SAO. Superb ergonomics, top-notch accuracy, awesome sights and a splendid trigger.

    3rd gen S&Ws for me. My favorite of those is the early version of the 4513TSW. No rail and 6-round magazine.

    My favorite range gun is my old duty gun, 4506-1. That thing still shoots like a laser after all these years and 1000s of rounds. Not one malfunction either. Never. :)

    My favorite, this 1911 not because it is the best shooter but because of the 4 years it took to talked the widow of the owner out of it. Its 100 years old this year.

    Number 2 would be this Taurus 92. Its a clone of the Beretta, made in the old Beretta plant in Brazil. Its metal framed, hammer fired, well put together and accurate. When I need a big semi auto this is the one. I have every confidence in it.

    "About the only mainstream guns I haven't tried are the CZ series"

    There's your trouble. The CZ75 or BHP is where it's at....... or for striker fired/ pre-sprung DA, look at the CZ P10 or one of the Walthers.

    I only have one semi-auto pistol, and it's a CZ75.

    My next one is going to be a 2011 from RIA in 10mm

    I like whatever is in my range bag, on the way to the range, I like to shoot everything I own.

    As others have said, the P226. It just does everything right.
