This has probably been done already...but, so what? Most of us have 9mms and many of us have shot a multitude of models in the ultimate "vanilla" auto caliber. What are your favorites and why? Here's mine: 5) Beretta 92/M9- Not a great ergonomic fit for me personally, but a stout, accurate, and battle tested gun. While it's bigger than necessary, I also think it's got a pretty sharp looking profile. It's mass production can also be an asset to the owner. 4) Polymers/Glock 19- I consider the G19 to sort of be "the standard". A great utility 9mm. Reliable, concealable, big enough to handle well, great capacity, simple to maintain. I could find other polymers that fit my hand better (which is why I don't own a Glock), and I consider the XD, M&P, and FNP lines to be of equal quality. I've also been really impressed with the ergonomics of the H&K P30. But Glock gets some points for establishing market traction with their initial offerings. I will never enjoy shooting a polymer gun as much as alloy/steel, but these guns are exceptionally versatile. 3) Sig Sauer P226- I love this gun's balance and it's as accurate as you could ask a sub $1000 gun to be. Excellent trigger. Like every other gun on this list, it boasts a strong service record. You can spend heavy for a prettied up version or go basic...and they're all tough as nails. 2) Browning Hi-Power/P35- Like the P226, this gun is very well-balanced and accurate. I prefer the BHP's slim profile and pointability to the Sig's, but BHP triggers often aren't so great in my experience. This might be the most widely issued military (worldwide) service sidearm over the last century. Outstanding track record and enjoys an undeniable prestige. Oh yeah- and they're beautiful. 1) CZ 75- On par with the P226 and BHP in my opinion, but costs hundreds less. I shoot all three regularly, and I like the CZ's trigger (mine has the Omega trigger) best. It's a heavy gun, and a little rougher finish and less nostalgic than the HP. But it's every bit as accurate and pointable. I essentially learned to shoot on this platform...so I shoot it better than any other and that no doubt has biased my opinion a bit. I also appreciate the variety of finishes available, to suit almost any taste.
