You answered your own question.

If full size 9mm is what you are looking for, three words;

Browning Hi Power



Browning High Power Belgium made Portugal 9mm : Semi-auto at GunBroker.com

Browning MK I Mark 1 FN High Power 9mm Inglis Semi : Semi-auto at GunBroker.com

The Beretta is kind of an ungainly thing for a medium caliber like 9mm but reliable. Myself, 1911 for 45ACP and a Hi-Power for 9mm. Extremely satisfied with both and have no need for anything newer. You can find Hi-Powers and of course other pistols in 40S&W (which might be another caliber to add to your list).

Both are great designs, but i think the 1911 is the superior handgun. Im sure alot of other people will agree.
