Okay....this is posted on the handgun hunting forum.

Call me a genius, but I'm gonna take a wild guess that you are inquiring about a 9mm to hunt with.


Which is best?




None of them.


Way, way better rounds out there for woods cary.


Even for ccw in the woods, I step it up a bit. Big hogs and the rare black bear......possible gator.......and now, thanks to our paronoid buddies in Alabama....The Bigfoot.

My woods carry ccw begins with .4 and ends with Magnum. Take your pick.

Do yourself a huge favor.


Sidestep the HighPoint like the plague. You already figured out one of the downsides.


Look past the Taurus just a bit.....Look at the CZ-USA 75, Glock G17 or the S&W M&P 9mm.


Of course, your a big enough fella to not have to shoot his buddy's momma's gun, right?.....



















Just funnin' ya. I kid about many things.....but never about serious stuff like guns. Buy quality and hang on to it.


9mm sure does make a lot of sense for economical range guns and smallish carry weapons. Fully grown fella like you can handle a bit more umph if you want. Something that will put a mad critter down.




Go with quality.



You are doing the right thing by doing your homework first.

BTW, nothing wrong with the Taurus...just look past the glossy advertisements and try a couple of tried and true platforms. Taurus is quick to atempt to convince folks that the new flavor of the week is what you must have.

go with a fourty...all the major makers make good stuff. you need to decide how much you want to spend. i have a .40 taurus pt140, its small, can carry it in your pocket. but it packs a punch. its fun to shoot, and ive never had a jam or miss.

best for the money in my opinion would be a Ruger p95 if you keep an eye out you can find them on sale new for any where between 225 and 300, they shoot straight and they are very easy to take apart for cleaning, and i have never had one jam on me

Cool.


Lots of good choices out there.

Sure does help the wallet when you want to bust off a few hundred rounds........when you are shooting 9mm.


Makes me re-evaluate my favorite rounds and wonder why I love 'em.

S&W M&P 9...comes with 3 grip sizes and has a great feel. The only negative about it is it doesnt breakdown as easy as the Glock. IMO

I think a pro 45 would be a .45acp, at least the one I had was!

The r.o.c., where are referring to? Sounds as if you are suggested the closed swap and sell section of this forum.

Ruger P series
Steyr M9

Another vote for the Ruger P series. Indestructable and a great value as well. I carry a P89DC. Not one failure or jam in 15 years.

Default Beretta

Go with the Beretta 92 .. I have several different 9mm and you still cannot beat the Beretta for accuracy or capacity.

(from Beretta website)


92FS

From the jungle heat of Panama to the sandstorms of Iraq, the U.S. Armed Forces have counted on Beretta pistols for almost two decades of distinguished service. The 92FS, Beretta’s premier full metal gun, most resembles the military M9 9mm pistol. Accurate out of the box, this workhorse features an open slide design that vir tually eliminates jamming, a safety system that combines decocking with a positive thumb safety, and a combat muzzle crown. Beretta’s proprietary black, non-glare Bruniton finish gives your 92FS a wear-resistant coating, which means it will stand up to any special duty.

I have 2 browning hi-powers. Love them both. They are older models but seem to chew through everything I feed them.

If you really want a 9mm. Go with a Glock 19 if your hands are big because you said you are a big dude. A Glock 17 will do it. Get a Gen 3 NOT a GEN 4 only becuase IMHO its a hit or miss. .40 , you can go with a G23 same frame size as the G19...or maybe a G22 will do? H&K,S&W,Sigs have some good firearms in 9mm as well.

glocks are great for the money, buy a sig 226 in 9mm, factory 20rnd mags, and 147 grn hornady, will put anything in north america down with good shot placement and with a sig if you cant hit what your aiming at then its operator error. always keep in mind a .357 sig is a 9mm loaded in a bottle neck 10mm/40 cartridge and is basically identical to a .357 magnum

I just bought a Taurus 24/7 9mm from Buds Guns for $297. Went to the range this past weekend and put 200 rnds through it with no problems. Very nice groupings at 15 and 25 feet, pretty decent trigger. Easy to break down for cleaning.

Which ever one that fits your grip properly, so that you feel comfortable shooting it... and you get progressively better at shooting it.

If you pay $200 for a gun that you rarely shoot, it's not a bargain. If you pay $800 for a gun that fits you like a glove so much that you shoot it on a weekly basis- that is a bargain.

I like my M&P 9mm better than the g17 I once had. If you are thinking of a ruger sr9 I think the sr9c has a better trigger and I like it more. The M&P is my favorite 9mm in my opinion. My close second choice would be a g19 .

As far as reliability and affordability, I like the P-94 or P-95 Ruger. I have a S&W 6904 that I carry daily, but would and have felt comfortable carrying and shooting my P-95. I have never had a malfunction shooting hundreds of rounds out of both. You can pay a lot more and have a prettier gun, but it will not function any more reliably than a good solid brand name gun that cost less. I have heard all of the arguments for having the newest and most expensive gun, but it really is people just feeding their ego more than a justifiable requirement to own one. If a gun is reliable, accurate and the size that is comfortable for you, it doesn't matter one bit how much it cost or the particular brand. If it fits your needs and you like it, buy and carry it.
