Default full size duty pistol

Ok so a while back I decided to go back to school and have been looking for a night job for the next 2years. A friend of mine hooked me up with a job driving an armored truck working swing shift which works perfect. Anyways I've decided to buy myself a full sized duty pistol for the job. At this moment I'm leaning twards the cz 75 sp01, the cz75b and the beretta 92.
anyone have expierence with these pistols? I've shot both the 75b and the 92 but never owed either.

Get either one of the cz weapons. The 92/m9 is just to big and bulky in the grips to suit me plus its 9mm which is another down fall to me also. To me its one of them things that if it works well for you and you shoot it well then use it.

Marlinman is right, the pistol that you should get is the one that you shoot the best. Find a place where you can test them out, or borrow a friends.

I always agree with that logic as well. That being said I've shot both the cz75 platform and the Beretta 92. For me they're very equal in accuracy as I was super impressed with both and I like the feel of both as well. I'm more looking for peoples opinions and experiences with reliability, breaking them down, durability, customer service, personal experiences etc

Understood. I haven't used either of the two, but have herd good things on both. The Beretta 92 is a great weapon, and it goes back to my old motto "if it is good enough for the U.S. military it is good enough for me".
