If you could have only one 9mm what would you have. This would be to shoot for fun and carry on occasion. Please consider cost, reliability, and maintainence.

Thanks

Only one 9mm?

King of the Nines for a reason.

Any operation outside of the US, this would be my primary sidearm. Ammunition available all over the world, won't announce "American" to anyone who casually observes the holder and almost unprecidented reliability.

So- one 9mm pistol to do it all? Many options- look at www.summitgunbroker.com at the SW 6906's for $289. Light, accurate and reliable. I couldn't be happier with mine. Other choices- used Sig 228/229 off www.gunbroker.com or www.auctionarms.com. I got mine for $404 off Gunbroker. Another choice- CZ 75, 75 compact or PCR. The CZ line of pistols is often thought of as the best bang for the buck.

The above three are the pistols that fit your criteria reasonably well. I'm sure others will chime in with other helpful suggestions as well. Good luck.

Happy New Year- oldandslow

A Ruger SP 101 with a 3" barrel. :D

If it has to be a semi-auto, then a CZ 75 with nice wood grips.

An FN GP35 would be my second choice, there's something about that gun that drives me nuts, even though I'm a die hard revolver guy (I'm trading/selling my last two semi-auto pistols next week).

CZ SP-01 Tactical with about 9 magazines (with a +1 base plate to make them all 20 rounders). :cool:




Now if for some reason I had to stay with American designed firearms it would be the Browning Hi-Power:

Glock 19.

No question, no doubt, no hesitation - - - Browning HiPower over any other 9mm on earth. 80%(?) of the 9mm you might be considering are based on that one nearly perfect sidearm.

THE 9mm. None better, all the others are just wishing they were one.
I hope I could get one of those in Argentina. FN products haven't been imported for ages and the only Hi-Powers in the market are decades old police trade ins.

The Browning High Power was designed in part (about half) by a Belgium engineer that was working for FN at the time.

To the OP, many companies make 1911s chambered for 9x19 mm these days.

I have to wonder WHY I would be limited to the 9mm???? The ONLY way I would choose a 9mm is if the ONLY other choice was .25acp or .32acp. IF I HAD to choose a 9mm, it would be double stack Para-Ordnance 1911.

Go Glock and don't look back. Glocks are the most reliable and most popular handgun for a reason: they're good. A Hi-power??? Nobody carries Hi-powers any more. Didn't those go out of style with muzzle loaders? If not, they should have. :D
