LOL! I'm not rabid, just stating why I went with the XD 9 over the G17. Sheesh, you fanboys are so "thenthitive"!

I agree whole heartedly with Gork. I own a glock and a XD. If I went and bought a 9mm I would get the XD

Actually, the one plastic 9mm I really liked was the FNP. It's similar in operation to the Sigs I use and can generally be had at reasonable prices on the used market. The only reason I traded the one I had is a friend pestered me for months and finally offered me a trade that I couldn't refuse...

Glad you mentioned that.
I've also been looking at the FNP and FNX, but I'm kind of confused as to the difference between the two.

If you want a hi-cap 9mm, pony-up and buy a Hi-Power.

Unless you're totally committed to polymer, Check the CZ 75 series. They can be had for under $500. Another fine option is the Stoeger Cougar. FNs are worth a look. I won't get into the Glock vs. XD discussion except to say that, they are comparable in performance, and it will come down to personal preference. I own a XD40sc.

I'll pitch in for the cz as well. If you need a polymer go with the phantom.

I have wanted a CZ75 for quite some time, they feel good in my hand and the price is not too bad.
Only bad thing about them is my finger is a little too short to comfortably reach the trigger in double action, the tip of my finger just barely reaches.
I would definitely love to have one as a range fun gun, but I don't think I'd be comfortable carrying it because of that trigger being too far away.
