Glock all day long. I hated the Beretta when I carried one and most of the other Joes in my unit did too.

M9 is the better choice hands down. Natural point of aim. Easy to get mags weight makes it a very quick follow gun, unlike the glock and other polyguns balance of the gun doesnt really change as the magazine is used.

But like others said personal preference rules. I rent glocks from time to time to see if my tastes have changed so far there hasnt been any.

Reasons i dont prefer glock:

Gaston glock is against personal ownership of guns and self defense yet markets them to individuals. Giant lib hypocrit. Why contribute money to an antigunner profiting off us??

Glocks dont have a natural point of aim.

They bugger up cases when firing and make it harder for reloading.

Mushy creepy triggers that arent predictable on when they break the sear engagement.

No secondary safety device. About the same as carrying a revolver cocked with a round under the hammer.

Yet another person telling us a gun is a POS because the grip is too fat, guess what, grip size is personal preference just like choosing not to own a plastic mushy trigger glock is personal preference, I have a big hand, I own a Beretta 96, fits me just fine, if this OP is considering a Beretta I'm sure he has handled one and is aware of the grip size. This is an awefully foolish reason to advocate "no one should buy a Beretta 92"

No reason to get all antsy in your pantsy. Just a point of view. With what was written in that little snippet, all you pull from it is a guy saying not to buy one because of the grip size? I carried the M9 for years. I liked it until I found something I liked better, which was a Glock.

Interesting, grip size is huge on the Glock 17 as well, which would be the closest comparison to the Beretta M9.

Those two pistols couldn't be more different. I like them both but own neither. If you're already used to a DA/SA set-up, then the Beretta makes more sense. However, it would probably be worth the time to test fire both of them because they are so different.

Both great guns and you would not be dissatisfied with either. Just ensure that the one you buy is the one that feels good and points naturally and well. I personally love Glocks, but won't use them for defense because of a lack of manual safety. For that reason I'd get the Beretta, but that's just me and my taste and preferences.

I meant holding it down while dissasembling it. I had to almost every time. It was annoying. And also a few people I spoke to on it said the same. And the hammer is loud if you were using it for self defense and you didn't want anyone hearing you. I'm saying it was loud because I'm comparing it to a sig p226 decocker and hk. I'm surprised no military personnel had the RSA fly off on em and render the sidearm useless. I was just stating my opinion to the guy and in no means start I.g arguments. But like everyone else said. U have to feel and shoot them yourself. Don't let anyone decide your protector for u.

If I had a quarter for every time I saw some joe send one of those springs flying, well ... I would probably have enough to buy myself a mid priced cup of Starbucks. Haha.
