Nothing But Nines VIDEO
 
I really enjoy shooting 9mm handguns, here's a little "Nothing but Nines" medley featuring the Glock 17, Glock 26, the Sig Sauer P226 and the Beretta 92A1. I'll be taking delivery on a FN FNX 9 on Thursday to add to the collection.

Which is your favorite 9mm handgun, and why? Let's compare notes.

As for me, hard to say which is my "favorite."

Here's the video:

I absolutely love my Firestar M43 to death, nothing beats it, but gotta be honest my dad's S&W 3913 is perfect. And it won't be long before I can no longer get parts other than Wolff springs for my Firestar.

I've had a few nines tho. Ruger LC9 and a Cobra Derringer in 9mm and Jimenez JANine. The Jimmy was actually the most accurate I've ever owned and nary a failure thru a few thousand rounds. I do love fixed barrels, wish more semi autos incorporated that feature instead of floating, it also simplifies the design and cleaning.

I'm hoping to be getting a Sig P938 here soon from tax refund. New carry piece!

I'm totally with ya tho, 9mm is where it's at for plinking fun and personal defense!

My fav 9mm is my Astra A75. I have had it for about 16 years. It has proved to be super reliable and an all round solid performer. I do wish it had a higher capacity but have never had the need for more than 8 rounds. (at a time)

Astra, at the top of my list for quality made guns.

Nice looking piece, never have heard of Astra before. Reminds me a little of the SIG P226 in appearance. Is it single stack?

So glad i talked myself out of getting rid of it a few years ago. Not the easiest action to cycle(needs a good firm pull) but i love it

Apparently the dimensions are the same as the Sig P229. Had some difficulty finding holsters till someone told me it would fit anything made for a P229. Yes it's a single stack and i keep 7 in the mag. Thought it was supposed to hold 8 but you really have to push the mag in kinda hard and it scratches up the first round pretty bad so i stick with 7.
