    Need Your Expertise - Best Option? 9mm Range and Eventually Competition Gun

    I'm new to pistol shooting (lots of rifle time), but have become involved with a group of friends that are regulars at the range and I am really enjoying the experience.

    I've decided, after a lot of advice, and research here and in other worthwhile forums, to go with a 9mm. The gun will only be used at the range, and later on, hopefully, for some limited, local competition shooting.

    I've narrowed it down to a few guns and could really use some expertise on what my best option would be:

    Springfield XDM 5.25 Competition

    Glock 34

    Sig Sauer P226R Elite Dark Threaded Barrel

    CZ 75 SP-01 Tactical


    Any assistance and recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

    No comments? I expected more from a forum with this level of expertise.

    Well, lots of opinions are posted here, but perhaps more than 9 hours is needed to get a good selection?

    Glock 34 is my choice of the above; whenever I shoot mine, it makes me look goooood.

    Thanks for the recommendation, DJ Niner. Sorry for my lack of patience, rough day yesterday apparently carried over into my response.

    No problem. Didn't want you to take the lack of quick and deep responses personally.

    It's an incomplete list.

    You don't have the Beretta 92FS on it.

    As I've heard folks say about other similar things in the past...

    Although I have quite a few handguns most were bought for concealed carry.
    Recently while at the range I decided I wanted a piece for shooting that was relatively cheap, easy to shoot, accurate, 9mm, etc.
    After a lot of researching I decided on an STI Spartan V 9mm.
    These are used for various competitions and receive a lot of praise from the owners.
    Currently they are listed for $635 at Dawson Precision in TX.You might check out ther STI website, Dawson Precision and 1911forum.com website.
    I did buy one and find it meets my expectations.
    I know it's not on your list but something to consider.
