    Saturday I will be making my first handgun purchase. I want a 9mm. I put up three choices. Which one do you prefer and why? Your opinion will be useful and considered. Thanks to all the marksmen who reply.

    I have not shot the other two, but I have had a 92FS for about two years and I do like to shoot that pistol. I am a dyed in the wool 1911 man, but if I need to impress someone with my shooting, I break out the 92. I like just about everything about that pistol. (If it were in .45 auto, it would be perfect and I would never have to buy another pistol)

    I have owned both the 92FS and the XD but never a Glock. I'll offer that either of the 3 you're considering are dependable, accurate and reliable guns that will serve you well. That being said the best fit will depend on your purpose, such as CCW, target, etc. Both the XD and Glock are polymer framed and offer multiple configurations of barrel and grip length for ease of concealment, not to mention capacities up to around 19+1. The Beretta is all metal, heavy and bulky...not the best choice for concealed carry but one hell of a rugged shooter. However you choose, be sure to pick the gun that fits you, feels good in your hands and is one that you are comfortable and confident using. Post an update and some pics afterwards.

    The only .45 I have owned was S&W 1911 Style. Gave to my son years
    ago. I really like the looks of the XDM .45 but it is too big for cc in my
    opinion. I also have a Beretta 92fs Vertec. You're right it is all metal, but
    the frame is aluminum. It's not real heavy until you load up 16 rounds
    of ammo. It's just too big, in my opinion, for every day carry. It would
    be great for open carry, but I choose to carry concealed.

    My EDC is a Taurus 709slim and am going to get a Ruger LCP for back
    up (pocket gun).

    I have shot the 92 and used to own a Cougar. I currently own an XDm. I carry a G19 4th gen almost every day.
    They all work very well but the G19 is a compact size, light weight, and high capacity at a nice price.

    If you want an all-metal, well crafted, last a lifetime pistol for target shooting, get the 92FS. If you want a 'carry' pistol, the Glock or XDm in a 3.8 compact are better choices. All are good pistols.

    I would go with the XD or the 92 I hate glocks because the only safety is the trigger safety, I know the best safety is the one between you ears but I still prefer something extra. I like the 92 shoots pretty well, I like the XD it also nice both guns in my opinion are fine never had a problem really out of either of them.

    I own a Glock19 Gen2, while my son owns a S+W M+P and a Barreta 92. For everyday carry I would choose either the Glock or M+P.

    I really like the M&P 9mm. I have shot the Glock 19, XD and M&P and would put the MP first followed by the XD and Glock.

    I really want to buy a Glock 17, but every time I go shooting I like other guns more than it.
