I don't get the fixation everyone has with Glock. Trigger like a staple gun, grip like a 2x4. Perfect range gun
Go to a range /w rentals and try a number of different guns. I ended up with a CZ 75BD in my 9 mm quest. Good value, accurate, & 100% reliable. Taurus PT92...hmm, they can be controversial, I'll leave it at that. Dig a bit deeper on your research.
Check out the Stoeger Cougar. Basically the older Beretta design built in Turkey by a Beretta owned company on Beretta's equipment. I had been thinking of getting one in .40S&W, but something else came up. If you like 1911s, Rock Island makes 9 mm 1911s for fire sale prices. I keep hearing more & more good things about them. Heck, don't forget to check Ruger, they make solid pistols. I'll admit that I've never found them particularly attractive, but they are certainly worth a look.
