Look for a Browning Hi-power (used).
(or the made under license Argentine 9X19)

Beretta 92 is a fun 9mm. Should try on as well.

Why not just get the M&P in full-size? You liked the compact enough to buy that. But it is nice to change things up. I like my SR9 alot. It would be under your budget and leave room for mags.

I do like my M&P. Kind of wantin something different. I have a couple buddies who have sr9's. They've had nothing but good things to say. It will be a candidate as well.

I own a sig 2022 and it is awesome. Four of the five people who have shot mine have bought one immediately after. I put it right up there with my 226 but for less than half the price. Great trigger, great quality, reliable, and one of the best feeling guns in hand I'd strongly recommend it to anyone and everyone

I really like my CZ75B. Very well made, solid gun with an all steel construction. Great range and nightstand gun. I also have an M&P9 Pro 5" and I still feel like I shoot the CZ better.

Full size M&P. Get good with one platform. You will be more likely to shoot with confidence if you are familiar with the controls/feel/grip angle/trigger feel, etc.

I have a 75BD, but the same applies. High capacity, well made, reliable and extremely accurate, all for a very good price.
Anyone shopping for a good all around 9 mm should at least take the CZ for a test drive. I picked it over much higher priced competitors.
Bonus: There won't be 20 others just like it every time you hit the range.
