Glock. No contest whatsoever.

Beretta, I'm looking to get a Glock 19 myself, butt my beretta is always getting compliments on the range, it's just so smooth and accurate. Plus there is a reason why the military picked the Beretta over the Glock.

Im not a Glock fan so I would even take the Taurus version of the M9 over a glock. Just my opinion. Thank you America.

M9 is way better than glock. Only gripe is take down and how loud the decocker is when the hammer slams. When taking down the m9 you have to make certain you hold the recoil assembly in or it will shoot out with alot of force. I've owned one and sold it because of those reasons. Plus I got a pretty penny for it since everything was customized.

i would go what feels the best in your hand. either pistol would be a good option, but which one fits you better is usually the one you will shoot more accurately.

My personal vote? Beretta!

however, I've shot a lot of rounds out both, and to counter the point of "why do you think the military uses Beretta?" --Why do you think so many police agencies use the glock?

both weapon platforms are accurate, reliable, and fairly cheap. I don't think that with either one, you'll find yourself at the range wishing you had the other.

go to the store and handle both of them, find out which ones feels best in your grip, actually pick a point on the wall and take a sight picture, feel the difference in the angle of the grip in relation to the barrel/sights. field strip each weapon to see if either one gives you an issue.

I've never had to physically hold the recoil spring and guide rod down while assembling a Beretta, and I've never had it shoot across the room. the sound of the decocker as it drops the hammer after chambering a round? it's about the same as snapping the hammer on an empty chamber

Not all of the military is using the M9. The marines are in the process of switching over to the Colt 1911.

Two different animals. Which one's better? Personal preference.

As to Marines switching, right now only Special Ops are switching to 1911s read here. It's about 12,000 out of 200,000 that are going to be issued 1911s.

The toss up is between a striker fired or a conventional SA/DA pistol...both are inherently reliable and accurate firearms, as mentioned, one is adopted by 60% of the police in the country and the other has been the standard issue side arm of the military since the early 80's. The best thing to do is to grab a box or 2 of 115 grain ammo and shoot a G19 and see if you are comfortable with it. If so then go for it. If not then get another Beretta. The PX4 and the M9 are similar in function so you'll be familiar with that, but the G19 is the odd one, so you've got to wrap your hands around it and get comfort with the safe action trigger and the grip angle and so on. Both are hits so you can't miss either way!
