No S&W 5900 love?

Hell, I'd put my S&W 5904 up against any of your plastic wonders anytime!

There are definitely better options. It shouldn't make the list IMO.

Those are good handguns though, especially for the time.

I honestly dont know much about the CZ75 or the tangfolio. I know they are popular pistols though. I still cant figure out how to embed pictures but the Firearms Blog has an article about it. In the comments people said thats what the CZ striker fired should have been.

For me if I were to pick "best" it would be best for everyday carry. For that I want reasonable weight, reasonable accuracy, as reliable as possible, and as simple as possible.

I chose Glock. Yes I can shoot some other pistols better but when looking at the complete package my glocks win out for me

I saw a video about this pistol and it could not be jammed with sand, mud, dirt. It was pretty impressive, the Sig didn't do as well and I'm a big Sig fan.

I agree, it feels like it molds to your hand when you hold it. And that trigger...

You can laugh at the P320 but it will be here a while and did bring the trigger house swap in the mainstream. The drop issue was retarded but I am a Glock guy too and I can remember the exploding 40’s.

Sig p320 is a good pistol.

The SP-01 is a hard pistol to argue with in the top spot though.

The rest of the list is just someone jerking themselves off over what they currently own.

Wake up.

It was the P320's predecessor - the P250 - that brought the modular FCG into the public's view.


Both are good pistols, but my preference is the P250

I'll throw in another vote for the concept that the best 9mm for someone is whichever 9mm happens to fit that someone best - barring the Taurus, which is never going to be the best at anything except being available in Brazil.

The 250 is very good, and may still be a steal of deal from time to time. That trigger becomes something of a workout, though, if a range session runs past 250 rounds or so (at least in my experience).

I have 250Fs in .40 and 357, I shoot them both, and I like them both. But I'll be damned if the number one effect of range sessions with them isn't to give me more and better control over a 226 or 320 trigger.

Cajun Gun Works CZ SP-01 Phantom is THE best 9mm full size.

And I'm not just saying that because I own one.

Fuck no man! I can never get the trigger right on those and cant shoot em for shit. They are super light in single action but mushy, creepy, and have an almost undetectable reset.

I want to like them, I really do. They are handsome pistols. I just couldn't shoot them even if my pussy intake for the next ten years depended upon it. I'll make a ragged hole with a 1911 or even a glock, but not with the damn 59s.

I'm in the market for a full size 9mm. I've narrowed it down to the CZ 75 SP-01 tactical in FDE or the Beretta m9a3. Tough choice to be honest. Still gotta ponder for awhile lol. If anyone would like to throw their 2 cents in go for it!

You should go with the CZ. Just because I own a couple of them, and that I sold off a Beretta 92 years ago because it felt like holding the big end of a baseball bat, doesn't mean that I'm biassed, or anything like that. ......James.

CZ. The Beretta is having lots of issues with production including weak flaky finishes. That is how you can order blemished m9a3's already

I shot a 92a1 and absolutely loved it though. Then again I own a P-01 and it's my favorite handgun to this day and the gun I have with me half the time. It shares time with the glock 19.
