So, Im selling my current 9mm to a fellow calgunner for a very reasonable price and I'd like to take that amount and apply it to a new pistol.

I'd like to stay in 9mm for a few reasons :


I have several thousand rounds of 9mm presently
I like 9mm for its availability and price point
I have shot 45acp and i am not a good enough shooter to fully take advantage of the 45acp ( stove pipes, limp wristing, etc..) I would like continue developing my good shooting habits in a lighter, more forgiving (both recoil and price wise) caliber



Im admittedly in love with 1911s but i am not a very good shot with 45 and mediocore with 9mm. As mentioned I would like to keep developing my good habits within the 9mm caliber until I graduate to a larger caliber.

What would you buy? Im looking for brand new ( older pistols NIB are fine of course ) in 9mm. [b]Please do not recommend a 22lr variant of popular pistols - I currently can only afford 1 handgun which is why id like to stay in 9mm - good punch @ affordable prices

only other criteria is MSRP is less than 900$ before taxes and docs

Thanks in advance! :D

edit: oh yeah and im a sucker for stainless / nickel

If you love 1911s maybe you could find a used Browning HP for around that price? Or if you wanted to get really fancy you could get an old Tokarev and do a barrel swap for a pretty good price. And of course, you could always just get a 1911 9mm.

Other than those I have no problem recommending a Sig P226, I think you could get into one for under $900 if you skipped the tritium sights. A Beretta PX4 or 92fs could also be easily had for under 900. Bonus if you get an Inox 92fs.

Sig P228 or 229 9mm.

I have one in .40 and it is a dream to shoot. I can only imagine how much more enjoyable it would be in 9mm. Be advised though, after you shoot a sig it ill be harder to shoot other guns except maybe a 1911.

Get one with the SRT trigger not to be confused with reduced reach trigger.

Maybe an XD9 or Glock 19 (bigger hands required) if you are looking for something polymer.

Not at all. In my case:

$823 - Loaded 9mm (free s/h)
65 - FFL transfer/DROS fees
-------
$888 - Me Happy :D and 12 bucks under your budget.

Cz75 or a variant of it. Cz pistols are very ergonomic and very accurate. Mark

p226, p30l, cz75b, and the aforementioned 1911 in 9mm.

I can't think of anything off the top of my head i'd prefer to one of those.

How about a NIB German made stamped slide Sig Sauer? I would recommend the P225 or P228. There's still a few samples available...

http://www.topgunsupply.com/sig-sauer-p228-handguns/

They are both under $800 and even with shipping and transfer fees added they are within your budget.

I didn't mention it earlier, but CZ-52 with 9mm barrel is sexy!

I just ordered mine along with a 9mm barrel all for a little under $500. It looks identical to that one minus the night sights.

it might helps us to know what 9mm you sold, so we don't recommend the same one to you.

but since you mentioned the recoil, and "limp wrist factor", browning hp. if you don't have large hands, you won't get bit

that looks like it might naturally point low. do you find that to be the case?

What was your "current 9mm" and why did you sell it?

Get a Glock 19 or 17 and then have the slide hard-chromed. It'll look like the pistol Joker uses in The Dark Knight. Also, it would set you back less than 700 easy.

That's not mine, it's identical to mine apart from the sights. Mine is still in DROS.

A used Ruger P89; if you can find one. (Anything cheap in price and reliable if you can't.)

Use the rest of your cash for range fees to shoot the several thousand 9mm rounds you have so you don't have to excuse your skill.

http://I would like continue developing my good shooting habits
