What 9mm do you like?
I have a few 45s and felt the need to get more 9mms. I do have a G34, so Glocks are out.

XD's are good,sigs,bertetta. Its all about what feels good in your had. I'm looking for a 9mm too because of cheaper ammo prices.

I have a Springfield Loaded SS 1911 in 9mm. It's decent and the ammo's cheap

M&P 9mm. If you got the coin, M&P 9L

Get a P6 if you can, they are inexpensive Sigs. Rugers are always affordable. Are you thinking of selling your 34?:D

Do you want a plastic fantastic or an all-steel handgun?

If you're looking for more combat tupperware, I'd go with an M&P.

If you're looking for some steel, I'd go with some CZ-75 variant / clone or a 1911 chambered in 9mm.

Im waiting the magic 10 days on a Para P18.9. With the stupid california 10rd mag law its major plus is downgraded but still a great gun. Plus I'm a huge 1911 and Para Ordnance fan.

I have G34 and HK USP 45. I think I would like a steel frame this time. A 1911 9mm sounds very interesting because I love my 1911 45s. I don't have a Sig yet and would like to own one also.
My budget is under a grand.

I'll check out Para P18.9, Springfield 1911, and CZ-75 at Turner's on Sunday. The grip of the Beretta and some Para are a bit too big for me. The HK USP is barely okay.
Are Sig 9mms double stack?

I wanted a P226 X-Five Competition last year. Just can't get myself to put out that much money!

I have:
Glock 19
Ruger P85
Sig P6
Browning High Power
Walther P1
Hk USP
Steyr M40A1
CZ 75
Springfield XD

If I was going to own only one and it would be my Glock, the P6 would be second.

Glock 19, problem solved! if in doubt rent as many 9mm at your local range and see which one you like the best, to each their own.

At the moment, I have 3 favorite 9mms.

You have one of them, the other is a 1911 in 9mm, and the last is a X5 which is over $1000.

My favorite 9mms:

Sig P226
CZ SP-01 (polish the sear, replace the hammer with a competition hammer)
HK P7M8

If you want an all steel 9mm, go CZ, Baby Eagle, Sig ST, or HK P7 (depending on budget) and never look back.

EDIT: Baby Eagle or P7 will debatably have the overall smallest, most comfortable grips. Baby Eagle fits ME best.

I was gonna contribute a list but the last 2 post got it covered.

All I can add is, at the risk of being redundant, since you already have a G34 I'd say get a Sig or a HK, if you want all steel go CZ 75 or FN/Browning Hi Power.

HK P7M8, P2000, or USP.

If I could, I'd own an HK P30. Dumb handgun roster.

This is my favorite 9MM. It is exceptionally accurate with the sweetest single action trigger.

If you are looking for an inexpensive, reliable and fairly accurate 9mm, try a Ruger P series. Not the best trigger but it will go bang 100% of the time and will eat just about anything.

For around $300, its hard to beat. Once you get comfortable with the trigger, its a fun plinker. Mine doubles as my HD gun and I wouldn't hesitate to trust its reliablity in that situation as I have not yet had a single FTF, FTE or FT anything with my P94 :D

The poor grouping was me being excited to shoot it for the first time and not really paying attention:rolleyes:

As others mentioned, rent a few different guns and see which one fits you best.

Good Luck!

At 7 yrds looks like you're not focusing on your front sight when shooting thats why your shots are all over the place except the bulls eye (where you are aiming).

Also, your not following through after your shots thats why the majority of shots are low. You're looking after every shot to see where it went.

If you practice while focusing on your front sight and following through that would tighten up your groups quite a lot.

CZ 75B, or CZ 75 P-01.


+1

Get the CZ75B/SA its single action, that is a nice shooter that remind me of the 1911 and it can be cocked and locked!

its my favorite 9mm Currently... and its all steel no tupperware here..

I am also in the market for a 9mm but since I am not working I can't have the one I want. wich would be a 1911 preferably a springfield. Go all steel, say no to plastic.

Thanks Olav, I'll have to try out some of your suggestions next time I go to the range. Part of the problem was the long take up on the trigger that I was really not used to since I was firing it for the first time.

Just another excuse to go practice some more!:43:

Since it was your first time with the pistol, I'll let it go this time. :D

Nice pistol btw!

The grip of the Beretta and some Para are a bit too big for me. The HK USP is barely okay.
Are Sig 9mms double stack?



If the HK USP is barely ok, then you will do alright with the Sig 226. The HK USP full size is just barely ok for me, but the 226 fits like a glove. Yes the Sig 226 is a double stack. Usually you will get the usual response - that you need to find what fits you best, and that you shoot the best. Well...

They are all wrong. The 226 is the only one to get :)

For a 9mm I suggest a HK P7PSP or P7M8

Miltiades
07-06-2008, 3:14 PM
If your hands are small, you might consider the Sig P239 instead of the P226. I have both, and the single stack P239 has a much narrower grip than the double stack P226.

I have my P7M8 and it is my favorite gun, I love that an high end 1911's but I will tell you - if you are just using the gun for range time don't get a P7M8, gets hot too quickly, too expensive, it is a carry/self defense gun, also an excellent shooter. Check out a 92FS or a P6 if you want steel, if your going with plastic then go with the G19.

WTF kind of list is that?

About half of them are variants of the same thing (CZ 75), and then they put a friggen Bersa Thunder, a S&W, and a HI-POINT :shock: yet no Sig P226? The "$550 new" rule sure falls short, and excludes many excellent firearms priced just above their limit.

I call shenanigans on that list. :p
