    I have many 9mm pistols from various manufacturers. If I had to keep just one it would definately be my SIG P226 ST. The weapon is built like a tank solid stainless steel and can handle the hottest ammo. Sig accuracy speaks for itself

    I just put my vote in for the HK USPc. I just bought it a week or two ago and it's already my favorite.

    My second choice would be my XD-9sc. Great little gun, but the USPc just feels so much better and is not too much larger than the XD.

    I've been wanting a CZ Rami for a long time, and finally had the opportunity to hold one at a recent gun show. Man, that thing is smaller than I thought it'd be! I still might buy one someday, but I didn't get the "WOW factor" I was expecting when I held it.

    Got to shoot my first Glock a while back- a G26. It felt alright for its size, but I wasn't that impressed. I'd still prefer my XD over it, but that's just my opinion, not trying to start a debate!

    Thumbs up Favorite 9mm?

    While you only gave the choice of S&W CS9 I do not have one but the 3913 is about as good as it gets. I believe that it will rattle around in that German Box that the P5 Walther, P6 Sig and P7 HK were designed to fit. Jim

    Thumbs up Favorite 9mm?

    My 3913 has been utterly reliable and is the serious social purpose gun in my meager collection. and while I have heard many good things about the CS9, I have not seen any reason to go to a somewhat smaller 9mm. Department issue 9mm +P+ give the gun a diet that it really likes and are the tops for stopping power in the medium range .355 -360 bullet range. Jim

    of the ones mentioned, I would have to pick the G26, but I just replaced it as my main summer carry handgun with the CZ PO1 which I shoot must better than the Glock..

    Thanks guys for all of you votes. I've been out shopping, trying, reading, etc. I even had an arm wrestling contest with 2400.

    And the winner is ....
















    A Kimber CDP II in .45 ACP.






    Man, that 2400 is one strong dude. Took me down in nothing flat. I had to give in and go with a 1911 once he forced one into my hands.

    First choice- Browning HiPower
    Second choice- HK P7M8

    I usually carry either a 1911 or HiPower, and have a HiPower on right now. When I can't conceal either of those well, I switch to the P7M8.
    If I HAD to pick something from the list, I guess I'd try an XD.

    I carry the XD sub S&W40. I carried my P99 for a week and it was so lite that I would forget I had it on. If I had the P99c in the SA/DA, it would be the gun to carry. If I could choose anyone it would be in this order. P99c, XDc, G26.

    Congrats there Wandering Man. That sure is a fine looking pistol you got yourself. Hope she shoots as good as she looks, and she should. Good luck.

    The only 9's Ive shot are a glock(one time) my brothers ruger p89 and now my CZ 2075 RAMI, and I have to go with the RAMI for compatability with my 1911's . The safety,grip feel,field strip etc etc are close to or identical to them so very little extra attention is needed to go from one to the other. The only real difference is the trigger reset is a little longer in the SA mode on the RAMI but not enough to create problems. Anyone used to the SA action would find the CZ a pleasant choice in the 9mm caliber,I just kinda ignore the fact it CAN fire DA too

    Scooter that's a nice looking gun do you know what the trigger pull is in SA mode? We have a gun show coming up and I want to get a CZ, just don't know which one. I like the 75 and the Rami you got look good too. Our local gun store doesn't have any to feel and play with. I might have to wait for the gun show to make up my mind.

    I may or may not, still or at sometime in the past, own or have owned a Glock 26.

    However, for the purpose of your inquiry, the Glock is the best of the lot!!

    If you want a small carry weapon the RAMI is good ,3" bbl and stubby little grip,I have no scale but I would estimate the SA pull at about 5.5 Lbs using my Commanders 3.5lb and kimbers 4lb pulls as a guage. It is just a tiny bit gritty feeling yet but experience tells me that will smooth out with age.
    If you dont want your pinky floating in the breeze I would say get the CZ 75c (4"bbl and slightly longer grip).I might get one later after my credit card cools off a little ,XMAS can be hell on plastic ya know

    Even with all the guns you list in the survey, you missed a bunch of great options. My choice for concealed carry would be the S&W 3913. IMHO it can't be beat: its concealable, has terrific ergo's, and decent capacity. This 3rd gen. S&W pistol also has a bunch of "custom" features built into the basic design. Things like stippled front grip, ambi safety, novack sites, beveled mag well, and ported slide (to mention just a few) were all standard on this pistol.

    I am sure there others out there that will do the job. 9mm must be the most popular caliber in the world. Most of your survey guns can "get 'er done" with no problems.

    I'd pick the CS9 to conceal, at least in this state. Flatter than the Glock or XD, has da/sa, which I personally like. I have the CS45, and it's just a tad big. Shoots pretty decently, though. The CS9 is getting close to a pocket pistol, which is cool.

    Tough choices either way. If it was a state where I could wear heavy clothing all the time, I'd pick something more along the lines of a Kimber .45 or a USP Compact, perhaps a Sig 229. It's when you throw the concealment thing into the mixture, you limit things a bit.

    You're wanting max firepower in the most easily hideable set up that you feel confident in and comfortable with. Tough choices all the way.

    This gun I think gets short shrift. I like the set-up on the third gen smiths. I'm a fan, and the 3913 is a great piece. I wouldn't argue a bit with this one, though it appears a .45 has won our yet again.....sigh
