CZ75 hands down best 9mm out there. if i was going to buy a 9mm it would be that. but im a .45ACP or .22LR person.

If you are going to cash up for a CZ75, do a search for a used Browning HP.

Save a few bucks and get twice the gun!

Poster is on a budget, so some recommendations are probably too expensive.

I really like the XDm 9mm and they've just come out with a new one with a 3.8 in. barrel. Really got my eye on one of those.

Default Ruger SR9

Hi Everyone,

Just picked up a Ruger SR9 yesterday and put about 50 rounds through it. I'm a Glock fan and for good reason. However, I like the SR9 so far. Very accurate and has a good feel. I don't like the trigger pull and I'm not crazy about the fit and finish on the stainless model.

I do plan to shoot this one a lot so we'll see if its prone to peening as some have been reported. My next one will be the Springfield XDm in 9mm.

~Steve

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.

Good for you ! I hope it is all you want. Some people are a little poo-poo on Ruger. For the price, I think they are good. Now go burn some ammo.

I don't have personal experience with the xd, but have heard NO bad reports as far as reliability goes. I would not be at all afraid to buy a used xd. Saves money.

Absolutely. This SR9 is my "range" gun. Shoots phenomenally well for non-categorized as a "match grade" barrel. I haven't found any aftermarket barrels for the SR9 is that because its not been widely sold or a restriction from Ruger?

The aftermarket thing is probably because it is a fairly new product. Companies are reluctant to put r and d money into a gun until it is a proven succ ess. I'm glad you like the gun. Reguardless of name and price, if you are comfy with a gun, it goes bang every time, and you hit your target it is a good gun for you.
