I was going to mention a 9mm 1911 as well. That said I've never fired a CZ 75, but the people that own them seem to really like them. My first revolver was a 4'' Taurus .357. Still have it. But now days I'm more of a semi auto guy.
While all my 1911's are .45's. I wouldn't shy away from one in 9mm. Modern 9mm HP's make a good choice for for defensive ammo. But if you aren't allowed to use HP's then the .45 is the better choice for defense.
Another vote for you to go down to the rental range and try all 3. Then decide from there what you like best.
Good luck with your search
