Good 9mm Semiauto
 
Hey everybody.

Its that time of year. Looking to buy a new pistol and looking at a 9mm. Thinking about the Ruger LC9 or the S&W shield 9mm.

Any suggestions?

It will be a while for the shield and you will probably pay over MSRP at most places. I like the LC9 except for the way it has to be taken apart (you need a tool)

I am a Bersa fan! Check them out! They consistently get four and five star reviews! I have their Thunder9 UltraCompact Pro 9mm and 1,000 rounds flawless functioning and counting! Awesome quality,performance, and affordable! Bersa is truly a undiscovered value!!!

I too love my bersa. At least i do whileit worked. I own a 380 that's in repair at the moment. The only thing I don't like is how difficult it is to find parts. But I bought mine second hand. Haven't looked into the 9mm yet tho.

Lots of good 9mm pistols available...Beretta, Glock, CZ, Sig, XD to name a few...

Are you looking for a carry gun, truck gun? Poly or Metal? Full size, compact, sub compact? What's your price range?

The BHP is called "The King of the Nines" for a reason.

This is a quote from a friend and member that I had the pleasure to shoot with recently;

Nothing ever came to hand (Or to shoulder, or to both hands after checking headspace and timing) like the BHP. It's not a matter of superior machining or novel takes on switchology...... It's a Zen thing where machine adapts to man. Personally, there was no adjusting to it. It fit my hand perfectly, pointed naturally, and put holes where I wanted them to be. Imagine your dog is happy to see you and stuffs his nose into your palm while you're lying on the couch. That's how the BHP greets you. When I say that I'm a "Non-Gun-Guy", Cane will tell you that I did not know what I was picking up. I've qualified and carried in the military, hunted in my youth, but I've always viewed firearms as tools. As much as I like the one I carry every day, I never realized the artistry possible until I shot the High Power. It's exponentially more than just a firearm.

Here's my Browning Hi-Powers in 9mm:

Get one.........or two.

Leave it to Cane to find yet ANOTHER thread to show off his toys!!! I will agree, the High Power is definitely on my bucket list. JMB didn't design one good gun, he made a career out of designing many... The High Power being one of my most admired.

For my money I wanted more of a modern striker pistol and ended up with the Ruger SR9. Couldn't be happier with the build quality and reliability. Several thousand rounds through it in 2 years and the only stoppage was in the hands of a new shooter limp wristing the gun.

Of course Glock, Springfield, Smith and Wesson, FN, Sig, and many more options are out there and in a number of form factors to suit many applications so your intended use will help us guide you....

I've got a Shield, so I'm partial. That said, I've fired an LC9 and have nothing bad to say about it. That, and the cold hard fact the Rugers are available, usually for a lot less money.

I say, whatever fits your hand just right, has a decent trigger pull, and one you can place shots well with. A nice compact and very accurate pistol I've owned is a Cz 2075 BD in 9x19, very excellent firearm. Another is the Caracal F. They come in compact and full sized models, the great thing about it is the low bore axis and extremely light trigger (Also the quick sights, but those are somewhat non-standard).
