I have two Glocks and love the feel and handling of both. Just thought it would be a good idea to try another manufacture.

Default 9mm ordered!

Thanks everyone for the input.

I looked over a Springfield XDm, Ruger P95, an SR9 (actually shot it), and an S&W MP this afternoon. I ordered an SR9. Love the feel and the look of the gun. The P95 was awesome as well. The Ruger just felt solid and both were very accurate.

I have a couple Rugers, a P95 and a SR9. The SR9 is now my carry piece. Good choice!

Just as I suspected! Knew you would like the SR9. Congrats on the new acquisition.

If you look hard enough you can find a new Sig Pro 2022 in 9mm. Gun is a 15+1, smooth trigger, night sights, and an all around good gun.

Glad to hear you found a gun that you like. How about some pics and a range report?

Good to hear that you have found one. I have a friend who has a Ruger & I have never seen another 9mm shoot as well, with ANY ammo as his. He can mix all types & brands of ammo in the same magazine & it never fails !

Well, I'll be the oddball, I guess. I carried a XDm in 40 cal for a year, but was unhappy with it's size. It was great to have all of those rounds, but the gun was just too big for some of the clothes I wear.

Three months ago, I picked up a S&W M&P Compact in 9mm. I LOVE this gun. It came with 3 mags (2 extended, 1 flush). Has night sights that work, grip palm inserts to adjust to my large hand (actually long fingers) for better trigger control, and so far it's digested any load I've tried, whether hand load or factory. The guns more accurate than I am, and best of all....It fits my body and style of carry.

I second Hollander.
I just found a slightly used Sig PS 2022 for $300 at my LGD. Can't beat Sig quality.
