The rules: The 9mm handguns must be great shooters, good quality, and cost less than $650 new from a gun dealer. Note: The haggle price is the best deal you should get from your local store.

9x19 Luger Ammo
1. CZ 75 SP-01: Haggle Price $600-$630
Steel frame. Weight: 39.0 oz., Barrrel: 4.61", Magazine: 18
My CZ 75b has over 10,000 rounds through it and is still going strong. I say this because the SP-01 is an improved verson of the CZ 75b. No other handgun has shocked the combat shooting world like the SP-01. World Champions Adam Tyc and Angus Hobdell showed us what this gun could do. As a range champion or tearing up a combat course, the SP-01 has no peers. If you are just an average shooter, the SP-01 could change your game. There is also an Tactical version with a decocker saftey. There are tuning parts available for the SP-01 if you want to build a hot-rod. Allow about 500 rounds for break-in. The straight shooting 9mm CZ 75b and CZ 85B rank here too. Also see the new SP-01 Phantom. The Phantom is polymer framed and weighs 29.4 ounces.

2. Grand Power K100 MK12: Haggle Price $510-$540
Polymer frame. Wt: 26.1 oz. w/o mag, Barrel: 4.25", Mag: 15 (16)
I am in love folks! What makes the Grand Power so great? Accuracy? The Grand Power K100 is the most accurate production service pistol you can buy. The rotating barrel, low recoil, tight fit, and competition quality trigger are the reasons why. Ergonomics? The 9mm K100 MK12 feels so good in the hand. It point and grips like the CZ 75b, only better. Four backstraps are included. Quality? The materials, machining, and fit is custom shop grade. The slide and metal parts are nitride impregnated. Very beefy slide rails. The steel inner chassis is very rigid. The Grand Power K100 exceeded the brutal 30,000 round test required by the European powers. If you snip the center post on the follower bottom, you can load 17 rounds.

3. Walther PPQ: Haggle Price $530-$560
Polymer frame. Weight: 24.0 oz., Barrel: 4.00", Magazine: 15 rounds
This German made Walther has the best 9mm pistol striker fired trigger of any duty carry handgun. Use care as the only saftey is the trigger, just like the Glock. The ergonomics are just like the Walther p99, which is perfect. Choice of three backstraps for hand fitment. When Walther decided to make a new striker fired pistol, they pulled out all the stops. Before you buy any new pistol, you must try the Walther PPQ first. It handles and shoots so good, it is like you are in a dream where every shot goes where you want it. It is a Walther, so quality is right up there with Heckler & Koch. The new M2 version has a button magazine release. The new 5 inch barrel PPQ models are kicking butt in matches! Tip: Mec-Gar Canik TP9 18 round mags work perfect for combat.

4. Heckler & Koch VP9: Haggle Price $560-$590
Polymer frame. Weight: 25.6 oz., Barrel: 4.09", Magazine: 15 rounds
Can you believe a premium quality HK pistol made our list? I have always had great love for HK handguns. One of my favorites was an 45 USP Compact I could not wear out. The new VP9 striker fired pistol is priced just low enough to make our list. Even though the Heckler & Koch VP9 is primary for the LE market, it is an awesome shooter for us weekend guys too. It is a good shooter and feeds everything. The H&K VP9 has a great trigger with little takeup and clean break. It is almost as good as the Walther PPQ trigger. When you consider the price of other 9mm HK handguns, the VP9 is a bargain. The prices should drop more once the pipeline is full.

5. CZ P-10 C (Striker Fired): Haggle Price $450-$480
Polymer frame. Weight: 25.7 oz., Barrel: 4.02", Magazine: 15 rounds
This pistol is so perfect, it is boring. It is a CZ, so point and shoot is perfect every time. You don't have to hard-focus on the target like other low bore axis striker fired pistols. No thumb safety to think about. The 4.5 pound trigger is perfect with almost zero reset. The P-10 feeds every type of crap ammo just fine. I hit the bullseye about 100 times in a row. Time for a nap. Compared to the Glock and many others, the internals are way overbuilt. One beefy baby! This is why the CZ P-10 weighs a few ounces more than the G19. I am sure CZ is going after the LE cop market with this pistol. Takedown is just like the Glock, and the P-10 fits most Glock 19 holsters. The low price should make the P-10 very attractive to local government bean counters. Two mags and three backstraps for hand fitment included. Also available in 40 S&W. Update: Now you can get 17 rounds 9mm extended magazines.

6. Glock 17 Gen 4: Haggle Price $536-$560
Polymer frame. Weight: 25.06 oz., Barrel: 4.48", Magazine: 17 rounds
The Gen 4 pistols are the best shooting Glocks ever! A nice feature with the Gen 4 series is the 3 backstrap choices to fit different hand sizes. Older Glocks feel like you are holding a block of wood, while the Gen 4 series molds right into your hand. Glock 17 9mm range performance is very good and the trigger is almost accetable for combat. The Gen 4 feels like it has less recoil than the old model. Glock has a proven durability history and is one of the most popular police carry guns. If you want a Glock range champion, spend the extra cash for the awesome G34; or make your Glock 17 shoot like a G34 with the inexpensive Ghost 3.5lb Trigger Bar. Also check out the 22 ounce Gen 4 G19 with a 4" barrel. It is the same gun as the G17, but shorter on both ends. The cheaper G3 models would rank right here too. Note: The new Glock Gen 5 models are out. The FBI loved the Gen 4 features, but hated the finger grooves. The Gen 5 is pretty much a Gen 4 without finger grooves.

7. Springfield XDm 4.5": Haggle Price $510-$540
Polymer frame. Weight: 29.0 oz., Barrel: 4.50", Magazine: 19 rounds
Spending only $100 extra for the XDm over the standard XD is one heck of a bargain! The XDm I tested was brand spanking new and the trigger has very little take-up with a short reset. So nice! I could not believe I was shooting a DAO striker fired pistol! It should be classified as a single action! The match grade barrel, two 19 round mags, plus all the extra goodies that come with the XDm are another plus. You can swap out the rear grips to fit your hand better too. Springfield pulled out all the stops with the XDm and built close to the perfect handgun. It just shoots so good! I was having so much fun, I went through $50 worth of ammo in minutes. The XDm is excellent for combat. The handy dandy XDm 3.8" model is a popular choice for police duty. Also available in 40 S&W.

8. Sig Sauer P320 Full Size: (Army M17) Haggle Price $500-$530
Polymer frame. Weight: 29.4 oz.(W/Mag), Barrel: 4.70", Magazine: 17
The prices have been falling fast. Sig got it right with their first striker fired pistol. Can you say modular, man! The P320 can be converted from a full size to a carry pistol using a kit. Slide-barrel conversion kit allows the P320 to change between calibers and barrel lengths. Want a different gun? The conversion kits cost from $300 to $399. You can swap out grip frames for hand fitment too. They cost about $46. Glock snobs will hate the high bore axis. Everyone else will love the way it shoots. The trigger feels good and compares well to the Glock and XDm. The P320 is a little heavy for a polymer framed handgun. This is just the Sig way to insure quality and accuracy. Note: The US Military has picked this pistol as the new M17. Street cops will want the smaller 9mm Carry version with the 3.9" barrel. Nitron sights and two mags included.

9. S&W M&P 9mm: Haggle Price $460-$490
Polymer frame. Weight: 24.0 oz., Barrel: 4.25", Magazine: 17 rounds
This is no Sigma! If you like poly framed guns, this Smith is one of the best shooting 9mm pistols. It is accurate as a steel framed pistol. You can tell it will be a good shooter just by holding it in your hand. The M&P trigger pull is about 6.5 pounds. The M&P uses a trigger safety. You have a choice of 3 backstraps so you can tune it to fit your hand just right. Follow-up shots are so quick. The fit and finish is excellent. The M&P would be a top choice as a competition or police carry gun. It looks mean too. Spend the extra $80 for the M&P Pro Series with the good trigger and better sights. There are Trigger Kits that will make the standard M&P shoot better than the pro model.
2017 Update: the M2.0 M&P is out. Other reviews say the updates are mostly cosmetic, with no real advantage over the standard M&P. We will review when we can get our hands on one. It sure looks awesome!

10. Walther P99 AS: Haggle Price $510-$540
Polymer frame. Weight: 24.0 oz., Barrel: 4.00", Magazine: 15 rounds
The Walther P99 grips so good. It feels like it belongs in your hand. The P99 trigger is great for a striker fired gun and would get an 9 out of 10 rating. The trigger in SA mode is short and crisp like an 1911 combat pistol! My favorite feature is the decocker button on the slide. You can decock the pistol so the first trigger pull is long and heavy. Rare safety feature on striker fired pistol. You have 3 backstrap choices for hand fitment too. The P99 is the perfect police carry hangun, and shoots better than most 4" barrel pistol on the market. At less than 24 ounces empty, the P99 could work well for concealed carry too. You get 2 mags, plus some extra front sights. The Magnum Research MR9 Eagle 9mm is close to the same handgun, but cost less. I love the MR9 stainless slide.

11. FN Herstal FNX-9, FNS-9: Haggle Price $490-$590
FNX - Polymer frame. Weight: 21.9 oz., Barrel: 4.00", Mag: 17 rounds
Made in USA! The FNX 9mm pistol still has the old school DA/SA trigger with a decocker saftey, and this is good. There is just something about a crisp single action trigger that a stiker fired pistol cant match. The FNX feels very good in the hand and you can change grip fitment with extra backstraps provided. Magazines are tight and take some time to break-in. Keep the mags completely loaded for a week and all will be fine.
The FNS 9mm pistol is almost the same gun, but is striker fired. You would swear the sweet trigger action came from the M&P Pro. The FNS shoots about as good as the FNX. The FNS model has been selling like crazy. If I was a cop that carried all day long, I would want the FNS on my hip. You can get the FNS-9 with or without safety levers. FNX or FNS? Tough decision. At this time the FNS models are cheaper to buy. Note: When price shopping, you have to figure that FNH pistols come with THREE magazines!
2017 Update: The beefy version of the FNS (FN 509 Series) for the military is now shipping. Hopefully we will have one to review soon. I hope the hinged trigger does not feel like a trigger with a hinge.

12. CZ P09 Duty: Haggle Price $460-$490
Polymer frame. Weight: 29 oz., Barrel: 4.53", Magazine: 19 rounds
Having owned six CZ pistols, I was expecting something special. The P09 I tested was a brand new gun that belongs to a buddy. Compared to other CZ pistols, the P09 trigger sucks. It feels stiff and spongy. I read other reviews, and they say the trigger is 250% better using the included safety lever instead of the decocker. I will ask my buddy to switch it out, then test again. It is a CZ, so it gobbles cheap 9mm ammo all day long. With 19 round magazines, you can really go through 50 count boxes fast. Nice feature is you can swap out backstraps. Update: The P09 converted to safety is just awesome folks. This fixed it. 3.5 pound S/A trigger! Long range accuracy is amazing. Premium shooter! CZ is gunning for US Army contracts with the P09. See the smaller duty size CZ P07 on the compacts page.

13. Springfield XD Mod.2 Tactical: Haggle Price $480-$510
Polymer frame. Weight: 29.0 oz., Barrel: 5.00", Magazine: 16 rounds
This is the 2nd Springfield on our Best 9mm pistols site. One of my range brothers loaned me a XD Tactical Mod-2 for 4 days. The tactical version has a longer slide with an 5 inch barrel. This is a very thin pistol. Almost as skinny as the XDs single stack. The Mod.2 Tactical is a smaller gun than the XDm. This gun feels very good in the hand. It points a lot like an 1911, and this is good. You can conceal carry in a belly band or IWB holster. It is a combat pistol, so making plate runs are easy. The fiber optic front sight is nice. The trigger is Glock average. If this was my pistol, I would install a drop-in trigger kit and have a bad ass shooter. With the grip safety, no worry about a light trigger. The new Mod-2 makeover makes the old XD feel stone age. I am sure the words "Grip Zone" on the grip is a turn-off for many cops. Tip: Mec-Gar makes flush 18 round magazines that will fit.

14. Beretta 92FS (Commercial): Haggle Price $550-$570
Alloy frame. Weight: 33.3 oz., Barrel: 4.90", Magazine: 15 rounds
Great performance on the range. This is a man's pistol. A true warrior that replaced the 45 ACP 1911 service pistol. The Beretta M9 (or 92FS) is the most tested pistol since the M1911-A1. Used by the U.S. Military and thousands of poilce officers. 9mm Beretta 92 pistols with over 75,000 rounds have been reported. This solid designed pistol is what replaced so many police revolvers. Nothing shoots better than a well used Beretta 92FS. Allow about 300 rounds for break-in. Good long range pistol. I can hit the 50 yard gong over and over again. Easy to find magazines and holsters for this popular gun. The Italian made ones are tight! See the new 92-A1 with 1913 Picatinny rail.

15. Ruger SR9: Haggle Price $410-$440
Polymer frame. Weight: 26.5 oz., Barrel: 4.14", Magazine: 17 rounds
I just spent some time with the new SR9 with the "D" shaped mag release button, and wow! The third release of the SR9 is a winner! I like the trigger better than the Glock! It shoots worlds better and is very accurate. Zero malfunctions in 300 rounds! The grip is slimmer than a 1911 single stack, even though the magazine holds 17 rounds. It has a thumb safety and tactical rail. The SR9 points like a Hi-Power and the sights are first rate. You can tune it to point like a Glock by flipping the backstrap. The SR9 made the top 20 of our best 9mm pistols site by golly! For under $24, you can install the Ghost Rocket 3.5lb Trigger Connector and end up with a competition shooter! With the Ghost Trigger Bar, you get a tight trigger pull under 4 pounds and ready for combat. Do you miss the P95? Ruger just introduced a budget version of the SR9 called the 9E. The Ruger 9E sells for about $60 less than the SR9.
