Default Decisions decisons...

Ok guys. I know I don't have this narrowed down very well, but I want to know you guys opinions on these following guns, as I'm looking to buy one of them. But I can not decide which one! I would love to hear your personal experiences with and personal opinions of:

XDm
Sig p250
M&P
FNH FNX-9
CZ 75 p-07

And I want to add that these will not be used for CCW. These will be for bedside and glove compartment and mainly for shooting at the range.

Also I'm looking at full size of all these models and in 9mm

Thanks guys!!!

Only one on this list I shoot before was the FN FNX 9. That gun shot like a cream puff! What a great gun.

Man that gun feels amazing in my hands. And to me it is very competitively priced. $499 in my area. Thanks for the input!

All of the guns you have narrowed it down to receive excellent reviews. Personally, I have owned 2, the XDm and the M&P.

The M&P is a great firearm. In about a months time, I ran ~ 2000 rounds through it, and it functioned wonderfully. I had a few light strikes, but I am attributing that to ammunition (I had them, a buddy with a S&W 5906 had a few, and a Glock 19 had about 4). It was very accurate, easy to field strip, and ergonomics were wonderful. My only dislike was the trigger. I could never really get the hang of it. Regrettably, I traded it for a .357 revolver that has since been traded off. I wish I would have kept it.

I still own my XDm. I bought it when they first debuted. I have shot near 8000 rounds out of it, and to date, I have not had any malfunctions. It is accurate, great ergonomics, and reliable. The trigger is consistent, field stripping is a breeze, and shooting a .40 caliber round, recoil is very manageable.

Although I regret trading off my M&P, I vote for the XDm.

Thanks for the input man. Very helpful. If money wasn't an issue the xdm is the pistol I'd go for. But only time will tell what I end up getting haha. If I can save up some cash the XDm is what I will get because I like it best of all.

By the way the reason I'm saying money is an issue is because my wife is leaving for basic training and my money will be quite tight for a while. None of these guns are bad expensive IMO. But I will probably use my Taurus 1911 as a trade in towards whichever I pick.

I say go for the M&P. I've only shot the same 2 as the last guy but I lean more to S&W. The different back straps are awesome too. I've got huge hands and a quick switch out and my wife can shoot too.

For glove compartment, get a Hi-Point .45
Inexpensive, can be bounced around/scratched up & you won't care, and reliable as a 1911, if not more so.
Best toolbox/tacklebox/glovecompartment/beater guns you will ever find.

For an "OhSquishBadSituation" weapon, it does the job and can take a beating.

As for beside the bed...whichever on the list feels best in your hands!!
But I'd lean towards the Sig or the FNH

Um...whats wrong with the Taurus 1911?? Those things are usually pretty darn solid!!

Oh there's nothing at all wrong with my Taurus 1911. I love it. But I can't really afford to own multiple guns for myself at this point in time. And I feel like I should have something that holds a few more bullets. I take frequent trips to Memphis and Chicago and sometimes I have to go through some of the rougher areas. And as we all know for the most part thugs and any kind of people who will start s*** with you run in packs. I'm a good shot bu in a high pressure situation like that I'm afraid 8 shots could end up not being enough. But 17-19 could definitely end up being better than 8 lol. And I do a lot of plinking so 9mm is way cheaper than .45 as we all know. I can always get another 1911 in the future and WILL definitely.

Of the guns you've listed, CZ and Sig are probably my two favorite "brands". But I wouldn't choose either of those two models, personally. Since you seem to want polymer, here goes...

XDm, M&P, FNH- Good guns, on relatively equal footing. Advantage: whichever has the fit and features you prefer. Handling each should afford you a greater perspective.

CZ, Sig- Like I said, I wouldn't choose the P-07 or P250. The P-07 is by most accounts a decent gun, but there have been issues with grip/magwell bulge. Maybe that's since been resolved. I've been less than impressed with the quality of the P250. Two guns I would choose however, would be the CZ SP-01 Phantom (basically a poly CZ 75 SP-01) or Sig P2022 (currently on sale at Bud's for $399).
