    Best Large Cap. 9mm?

    I already have a glock 26 so I feel I have the best CCW 9mm out there.

    Now, for a large capacity (greater than 15 magazine capacity) 9mm what would you choose?

    I am thinking a Glock 34 or a Glock 17 but an open to other comments....

    XD9, P99, M&P, to name a few. II own two, don't care too much for the M&P, but it shoots well.

    I highly recommend the S&W 915, you can get after market 17rnd mags and factory 15rnd mags. I have one have put over 10,000 rnds through it without a hiccup. If you can find one, they don't make them anymore. I know its not a M&P or XD I favor all metal guns over the new "plastic" ones
    , however I do carry a XD .40...lol...anyway, I also carry a beretta M9, same thing 17 and I think even a 20 rnd after market mag and 15rnd factory. I have also put 10,000+ rnds in that as well. I vouch for both. 100% I just clean after every use.

    I'd choose what I did choose back when I made this choice - Berreta 92FS. But that is just one of many great guns. It all comes down to what feels best in your hand and you shoot the best.

    Taurus PT99 isn't too bad, either. Shoots well, but feels cheap. No failures, though, so I can't complain much.

    Didn't care much for the overall feel of it. Didn't point very naturally, didn't care for the trigger, and the overall layout of everything didn't fit my hand well.

    I'm still considering an M&P in .45...I shot that considerably better then the 9mm I tried. Seemed to feel better, as well. I'm not sure if they use the same grip size or not.

    If you're happy with the Glock 26, just get a bigger Glock. Semi-interchangeable mags, holsters, etc. Trigger time with one translates directly to trigger time with the other.

    I have a 17 and a 26. Works great.

    I am curious whether you tried the different grip inserts with the M&P. They can make a big difference in the natural pointing characteristics.

    As Mike says though, if you are happy with Glocks and don't like experimentation get another Glock.

    The M&P .45 grip is a tad larger than the 40, 357 or 9.

    I agree with that thinking. I had one XD, wanted a smaller CCW gun, so I got another XD. No need to "learn" a new gun.

    Glock 17 because the mag can be used in your 26, and everything else will feel similar.

    Don't know much about Glocks, so this maybe a stupid question:
    Why don't you just get a 17cap mag for your 26?

    17 offers longer sight radius and a longer/more comfortable grip.

    oh ok, so what does the 19 do?
    I guess it's the middle one?

    sorry, I don't really use them (do not feel right in my hand) so I am really curious.

    You're correct - the 19 splits the difference.

    I did not as it was a rental. I didn't ask if they had the other inserts...they come with three, correct? I believe all had the medium backstrap.

    Another problem I had was the layout. I didn't feel comfortable with the mag release and slide lock lever. I also felt like i had to really try to release the mag.

    But both me and my dad shot VERY well with the .45.

    Just to give a dissenting view, it's a good gun for a crunchenticker, but rather bulky with a long trigger reach and a very high bore axis. I owned one once, but sold it after only a short time. I do have small hands, which was part of it, but the DA/SA trigger was also annoying.

    Stone cold reliable, though.

    As 9mm's go, I have 2. The 226 being one of them and a 1911 is the other. If I was to want to carry a 9mm it would be that Sig. Say what you will about this and that but the fact remains it is one of the best built most reliable on the market. Mine is a tack driver at 50 yards. call me weird but I just like a pistol with a hammer. Being a 1911 freak I'm not real big on the trigger of the Sig either but I just can't deny the way the pistol functions. 5,000 rounds through mine and it shoots as well now as it did new if not better.

    I have a TZ99 which is the same gun as the CZ999 and the EZ05 and the rest of that family. They come with 15rd and/or 10rd ( for the left coasters, thats California ya'll) mags, but with a slight modification to the 17rd Beretta mags, you can use them. You may also check into the Witness and CZ75 pistols and I think the S&W Sigma SW9VE is a 16+1.

    CCW: XD9 subcompact - 10rd holstered, 16rd w sleeve for reload

    Unsupported chamber puts Glock off my list. Period.
