Ive been looking for a full size semi auto 9mm for range use and an occasional night stand gun. My current stable of handguns are a S&W m&p 9c, kahr cm9, springfield loaded 1911, ruger gp100, browning buckmark and a el cheapo phoenix arms hp22. Im looking for opinions and experiences....accurracy, reliability etc. Im wantin to stay under $600 also. One in particular thats got my attention is a sig 2022. I havent seen one in person yet. Thanks.

Why not just get the M&P in full-size? You liked the compact enough to buy that. But it is nice to change things up. I like my SR9 alot. It would be under your budget and leave room for mags.

I do like my M&P. Kind of wantin something different. I have a couple buddies who have sr9's. They've had nothing but good things to say. It will be a candidate as well.

I own a sig 2022 and it is awesome. Four of the five people who have shot mine have bought one immediately after. I put it right up there with my 226 but for less than half the price. Great trigger, great quality, reliable, and one of the best feeling guns in hand:D I'd strongly recommend it to anyone and everyone:D

I really like my CZ75B. Very well made, solid gun with an all steel construction. Great range and nightstand gun. I also have an M&P9 Pro 5" and I still feel like I shoot the CZ better.

Full size M&P. Get good with one platform. You will be more likely to shoot with confidence if you are familiar with the controls/feel/grip angle/trigger feel, etc.

I have a 75BD, but the same applies. High capacity, well made, reliable and extremely accurate, all for a very good price.
Anyone shopping for a good all around 9 mm should at least take the CZ for a test drive. I picked it over much higher priced competitors.
Bonus: There won't be 20 others just like it every time you hit the range.

Another vote for the CZ 75. I don't have one but have been looking for a great range/car pistol and I think the CZ fits the bill. An inexpensive and very well made handgun.

Well ill throw the cz75 into the mix as well. Went looking yesterday and cant find ANY of the guns im interested in. No M&P's no sr9 no sig no cz75....depressing. I wont make a purchase unless i can find one to handle first.

XD competition model is very good range toy. I like the 5 1/2 barrel and 9mm ammo is affordable even in these difficult times. I have no problems shooting a 8" steel at 50 yards with an XD competition model. If it fits your hand it is a good gun.

Agreed! Give it a shot or 50!

If you look around, there are lots of older Sig 226 police trade-ins. I seen 3 in one case a couple weeks ago for $419 each. They were however .40s&w. A Sig 226 is superior to a lot of the other handguns mentioned. I might be a bit biased though. :)

I just picked up this FNH USA FNX-9.

It's chambered in 9mm, 17+1, comes with 4 backstraps, 3 mags and a hard case

I paid $589 + tax NIB.

I'd have been yet another vote for the CZ 75b. The most accurate pistol in my hands, and pretty much everyone I shoot with as well.

But FN's a fine choice that's unlikely to disappointed.

Can't go wrong with the FN. I'd hit it. Been wanting an FN, just never stepped over the line and bought one.... mostly because I typically have a Sig on lay-a-way somewhere at any given time.
