  • IYO: Best 9mm to invest in

    In you opinion what is the best 9mm brand to go with. Glock, Berreta, Springfield, Kahr, etc.?????? I had got a lot of feedback on Glock 17 thread, but I would like to go outside the spectrum of the "Glock World"
    Nothing worth having comes easy...earn it

        My 9 is a Sig Sauer P226. Love it.

        The answer to the "best gun" question is always the same - What do YOU shoot well? What fits YOUR hand well?

        As long as you're not going to carry a Hi Point on duty the answer to these two questions should fix you up fine. Don't buy based on reputation or what a bunch of guys on a forum say, especially if you're going to be using the weapon in a duty situation. If it's for plinking, go nuts.
        For every one hundred men you send us,
        Ten should not even be here.
        Eighty are nothing but targets.
        Nine of them are real fighters;
        We are lucky to have them, they the battle make.
        Ah, but the one. One of them is a warrior.
        And he will bring the others back.

            Well, according to your title it seems you want an investment... meaning what is going to maintain it's value over the years... for that I would go with one of the big names like Sig or HK...

            But like a few others said, go with the one you shoot well with consistantly..

              Sig P226 Elite or Blackwater Tactical 9mm. The Elite is basically a P226 with a beavertail, short reset trigger, front cocking serrations. The Blackwater Tactical is a cross between the Elite and SCT model as it comes with all the Elite features and a TFO front sight, 4 (20) rd mags and magwell grips. Both are pricey but well worth it.

                First, I also ask what the purpose of the firearm is. Like everyone else says, go try a whole bunch and see what you do best with. I love my Sig 229DAK. I've tried dozens of semiauto handguns and still, nothing feels as good as it does in my hands. I would buy another one if anything ever happened to it and she'll always be the ruler by which I measure any other gun.

                Springfield's XDs and S&W's M&Ps should also be considered. They are utilizing Glock's fundamentals and adding a feature or two they customers have been asking for. They are gaining a lot of support/popularity recently.

                On the other hand, assuming you are or want to be an LEO, -sigh- I'd probably just recommend a Glock 17 or 19 with the asterisk of "I don't own a Glock and don't even really like them". A large number of departments issue/authorize Glocks and in the instance that you want to switch departments, a Glock would transfer easier. I find that there are also more Glock armorers around. Things do change, though.

                  Sig Sauer P228 & P226 are at the top of my list, but you really can't go wrong with any of the other examples members here suggested. My 1st non Sig choice would be a Glock 19.

                    Invest in ... for personal security? To keep on you? This will be a smaller, possibly single-stack weapon. Go with a glock. They're relatively inexpensive and reliable. Carry guns will see wear, they'll get beat up.

                    Invest in for fun at the range, plus holds its value? Stick with a big name. Stay stainless. Nice weapons only depreciate with damage, not age and honest use.

                      What a funny thread...

                      We can't really help you until you tell us what you plan to DO with this new gun.

                      Top brands I can think of off the top of my head:

                      * Glock
                      * Sig Sauer
                      * H&K
                      * S&W (NOT the Sigma series)
                      * Springfield
                      * Colt
                      * Kimber
                      * Dan Wesson
                      * CZ
                      * Kahr


                      Find the model that works for you, and fits your needs. If it is made by one of the above manufacturers, it is probably good to go.
