JLK, you certainly have many quality 9MMs to choose from. I have owned a bunch of them and still have quite a few different types of 9MMs that I enjoy owning and shooting. What I found though, is that since i have owned and carried 1911s so much, that I most always shoot the 9MM 1911s better than other non 1911 types of equal quality...ymmv
BTW, I've owned three Kimber 9MMs and a .38 Super, all were reliable from day one, no issues, none of the dreaded MIM parts ever broke,etc. I also have, or have had, good luck with Colt and Dan Wesson 9MM 1911s and the STI versions seem to come highly recommended. Not such good luck with my SA 9MM 1911 as received...
