i just love sigs. had my first tries at a p226 and p239 this weekend. i loved both, even the DA trigger pulls

i am a fan of the glock 19 not only because of the utility and cheap mags, but it is the only plastic pistol i shoot well

i love the ergo of the walther p99 but i flat out dont shoot it as well.

Both solid pistols. Reliable, accurate, and fit my hand very well.

I am very fond of my Sig P226 and Glock 19. Neither one has ever failed to function, and they seem to be equally accurate. I also like the fact that I got them both in the 1990s, and they came with regular capacity (15 round) magazines.

9mm is one of those cartridges for which a large number of outstanding pistols are available. Some of my favorite 9mm pistols, in no particular order, include anything from Glock, any flavor of Springfield XD, Smith & Wesson M&P/M&P9c, Beretta Px4 Storm (G version with slim controls), HK P2000/P2000 SK (V3 only), HK P7M8/P7 PSP, Walther P99/P99c (AS only), Browning/FN Hi-Power, any flavor of Sig P210, and most Sig-Sauer pistols (SA/DA with decocker, or an SAO version). Which is my favorite depends on the day of the week, my mood at the time, and the extent to which there are sun spots.

I tend to favorite compact or subcompact pistols, given that we're limited to ten-round magazines in this state. Some compact or subcompact pistols have better ergonomics than others. When you shorten the grip, especially for subcompacts, ergonomics generally (and necessarily) take a hit. There are usually magazine extensions, sometimes offered by the manufacture, and sometimes designed by a third-party, and help offset the decreased ergonomics issue. The award for the worst magazine extension for a subcompact has to go to the HK P2000 SK, whose forward-swept design tends to cramp the fingers. Pearce make the best, in my opinion, magazine extensions for Glocks and Springfield XDs. The best factory magazine extension is that provided with the Smith & Wesson M&P9c.

P228 vote here. Bought a Baby Eagle before that and put about 3000rds through the BE. And after putting 300rds through the 228, it is now my favorite 9 to shoot, it is just so much better in every way. Both are equally reliable, never had a jam of any sort with either. But the 228 just shoots so much better, recoil feels good and reacquiring the target is fast and easy. The P228 isnt super duper accurate, but accurate enough to tear a small single hole within a hot second. P228 feels damn near perfect for me. Now I gotta try the 226. ;)

glock17, if i could have just one, but in a very close second the cz p-01, it fits my hand like a glove. i also have a beretta 92, not one of my favorites.

03-11-2007, 10:42 AM
I'm quite fond of my 9mm major open gun :)

I really liked the Star model B I had since it was kind of in proportion to a 7/8's 1911 in 9mm. The 1911 is too big for 9mm, it ought to be slimmer... the star broke and was sold as an antique. It was neat though.

I still have my 2005 cz-75b and my hk-p7m8. Both excellent depending on my mood and cheaper practice.

03-11-2007, 12:54 PM
Glock 19 because that was the flavor of the month


P-228 because it was the alternate JSAP winner for those needing a more compact 9mm

Also had a ruger P89-couldn't pass up a $150 9mm, the Beretta 92-good enough for our boys means it is good enough for me and shot the hell out of it and got that cracked slide thing that allot of folks-especially DOD complained about on the early models, the HKVP-70 which was my early favorite in the early 80's with that huge magazine and non-metallic frame but just did not feel right in my hand especially with that really strange trigger, and I was offered and obscene amount of money for it, shot even the Bryco 9mm-the well known $89 9mm from those LA gun makers recently put out of business. Also shot the Hi-Power-but it was old and worn and finicky, the CZ, Glock 17, P-38, old beater Luger, P-228

Still looking to shoot and field strip and fondle and molest over and over the newest 9mm CZ, the USP, the mini-glock, the Kahr, the Walther P99, anything Kimber or Springfield, and a whole lot more.

My favorite that is not in my possession is the Luger, has to be the most natural feeling in my hand and of course the sexiest of all 9mm's with a long rich history but the dang prices are so high on those suckers.

Overall favorite is my G19, but I got really pissed at it for a while several years ago when I bought it specifically to match it with a lasermax site which turned into a huge fiasco of misery and pain. I will repeat as I often do, BOYCOTT LASERMAX PRODUCTS.

The P228 is an old favorite and it has never misfired even with some real junk ammo going through it.

My P89 was also reliable but had a very serious issue with accuracy as there was either something wrong with the barrel (maybe a nick at the end) or the barrel retainer or something was to loose.

Also watch out for the old used pistols, I learned from experience that there are allot of well worn out 9mm's out there. Unless it is something like the Luger I would pass on used and go new.

I was also amazingly surprised on the Bryco having no misfires in like 300+ rounds and being fairly accurate especially for someone shooting it the first time and all just for $89. Unfortunately it felt funny in the hand and look like it was for a gay fellow pumped up on Steroids and should be painted bright colors like a water pistol.

glock 17, usp full size 9, p7m8

03-11-2007, 1:46 PM
anyone have any real experience with any 1911 9mm? seems the guns are not just built for small cal.

03-11-2007, 4:36 PM
my favorate is definetly the sig p226 followed closly by a hi-power. i just think sig's are so accurate, and reliable.

your turn

Smith & Wesson model 547 revolver...

Or a Sig 228 pistol.....

Sig P226, but I will be getting a 9mm barrel for my P229, so that may change.

03-11-2007, 8:59 PM
Make mine the Glock 17 and Beretta 92 FS.

03-11-2007, 10:05 PM
I thought we just did this....


03-12-2007, 7:58 AM
springfield XD9 for me

03-12-2007, 8:12 AM
Smith & Wesson model 547 revolver...

Or a Sig 228 pistol.....

I agree with the S&W 547, with a three inch bbl and round butt hard to beat. I think as far as auto's go I would have to say the H&K P7M8 would be my favorite.

03-12-2007, 8:38 AM
Favorite would have to be my Sig P226, but I like my S&W 5904 also.

03-12-2007, 8:48 AM
+1 on the XD9, pleasure right out of the box :)

03-12-2007, 11:47 AM
1. Browning Hi-Power
2. Sig P239

03-12-2007, 5:20 PM
I'm lovin' my XD9. 3000+ rounds and it just keeps getting better.

03-12-2007, 5:26 PM
its probably you who keeps getting better

03-12-2007, 5:42 PM
SIG P228
SIG P226
HK P2000 V3

Going to pick up a M&P9 in next few weeks, then I can decide if I want to add that to "favorite" list. At least ergonomic is not bad.

03-12-2007, 8:41 PM
Cz P01

03-12-2007, 8:48 PM
I really like my Hi-Power, but after shooting it quite a bit, I find the trigger reset is kind of weak.

03-13-2007, 9:26 AM
its probably you who keeps getting better
Haha! Either way, I'm happy. :)

03-13-2007, 5:08 PM
Learned to shoot with an old Vietnam era knockoff Hi-Power, and have shot several 9's since, that Hi-Power is still my favorite. Too bad I don't own that one.

Sig 226

I have a Ruger P89 that has 5000 + rounds down the pipe and not a problem. It is alot of fun to shoot. The wife has a great time with it.
