      Best Bang for the Buck 9mm

      Looking to get a 9 for home/carry... Want something dependable that won't break the bank...I really like the wifes' M&P 9c,but I wouldn't mind something different...I've rented whatever they've had at the range,but their choices are somewhat limited...I've shot the M&p's, XD's and a Glock...What else is out there that's worth a good look at? Shooting my 45 is getting to be a bit expensive...

      I am in the same boat as you and I've been looking at the following models:
      FN Herstal FNP9
      Ruger SR9
      Springfield XD9
      Beretta PX4 Storm
      CZ 75 P-01

      All of these are good guns and reasonably priced, as handguns go nowadays. The FNP9 and SR9 can be found for $435.00 and $400.00, respectively, whereas the others are more pricey. I left out the Sigs because they run $800 plus.

      Depends. What your definition of "break the bank"? $500 and under? $1000 and under?

      Gotta love a Sig!

      I'd vote that or the XD, M&P, or Glock.

      I have a Glock 26 and I like it a lot. Super easy to carry and I picked mine up new for $470 before taxes. I have never shot the S&W MP but I have heard good things. I personally really like the Springfield XDs also. An XD compact in 9mm might be the ticket. However I would check out the specs on each gun (weight,length,width,height) and compare. I made a nice little spreadsheet when I was trying to find a nice compact 9. It really helped to see everything right in front of my face. As far as dimensions go the Glock 26 is going to be the most compact in the height and width but only barely against the S&W MP. The XD is the shortest in barrel length (barely) but tallest in height. When carrying I find the height of the gun to be important because that helps to determine how much of the handle you are going to have to try to conceal and the handle is usually the part of the gun that prints most while carrying. Just a though.

      Steyr MA1.

      Under $350 that last time I looked at the CDNN catalog. They also had the S&W 910 for $379.

      You can buy M&P's for $500 or a Sigma for $325. I would go wih the M&P 9.

      Great. Now I have to add the Sig Pro 2022 to my list. I did not know about this one until now. Thanks, though.

      not trying to make your search any harder, but ive heard good things about the stoeger cougar, and its one of the top ones on my list of possible choices when i can finally get a handgun. i dont have any experience with them but have heard from several people they are great deals.

      good luck with your search! let us know what you end up getting and how it handles!

      CPO Sig Sauer's runaround 500.00-550.00 For the money it's one of the best deals you will ever get. I have two that IO purposely abused just to see when they would hang up. I broke down and cleaned them after a few hundred rounds through each in the span of a week.

      If you can find one check it out. The feel is great and they will stand up to the phrase "To hell and back reliability".

      The FNP's are pretty nice too. I'm not big on Tupperware weapons but they shoot really nice. I have the Browning version of tyhe FNP and really like it. can't figure why the Browning's are selling a good but higher than the FNP being it's the same gun but there is a pretty wide gap between the prices of the two.

      I have the Sig 2022 in 9mm. I love it. First shot out of the box was deadcenter bullseye. That was a confidence builder. I do not use it for carry though. Winter carry is Walther PPS .40 and summertime is the Kahr PM9. Neither of those are in your price range but both have been great for me. Good luck in the search. Sometimes the search is as much fun as the find!

      Have you checked into a Bersa Ultra Compact 9? The UC-9/40/45 pistols are one of the best kept secrets around and sell for $350-$400. Actually, you won't regret it if you look at any of the Bersa pistols! Unlike the Bersa 380's that are essentially PPK clones, the UC's are mods of the Walther P-88 which is a VERY well regarded pistol.

      I'm in a very similar situation and have locked in on the Beretta PX4 9mm. Haven't read anything bad about it yet!

      Haven't heard anything bad about the SIG either but didn't know until I read this that you could touch one for around $500.

      Keep in mind those are CPO (Certified Pre-Owned) Sigs, not new. Unless you're talking about the Sig Pro 2022 which Bud's has, in stock, for $478. http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/p...ducts_id/14902

      You can get a Sig P6 for under $400, or like DJ said a CPO, I have a P226R CPO I got from Buds for $535, but really you should try out a few and find what works for you, also don't overlook the Beretta M9 (92fs) I had one and should have never sold it
