and what if the G19 doesn't fit a persons hand well? i can shoot many Glocks quite well, but have found many other pistols that fit my hand much better that i can shoot even better than the Glock. usually the pistol that fits your hand better is the one you can shoot much more accurately.
the best advice on which 9mm pistol to choose is the one that fits you well. try out several, rent them if possible. set a budget and try out as many as possible within your budget.
many reccommend a particular model or make of pistol. IMO, wrong recommendation. are you assuming the OP has the same size hands as you and has the same feel for the grips? the same dexertity of grip? long or short fingers? too many variables to be able to recommend a particular make or model of pistol.
