P226, hands down. But of course it is more expensive.
I've shot both quite a bit. The M9 is a good gun and a reasonable choice for its price point. My issue is that it's massively overbuilt and oversized. For similar guns I would greatly prefer a CZ 75 (similar price to the Beretta) or a BHP (similar price to the Sig). Both have slimmer profiles and point a lot better for me.
I've always been a little "down" on the M9/92. More about personal preference than its actual function. I generally don't like guns to be unnecessarily big. These are the 4 metal-framed semi-auto platforms that I really like:
Your mileage may vary.

People often ask me, "How many ARs do you have?". Well, that seems to be in a constant state of flux. An honest and concise answer might be something like "six and five-eighths". And to the AR enthusiasts among us, that will make perfect sense.
