I looked real hard at the SR9 and the M&P. I now own the M&P9, M&P9c, and an M&P22, and haven't looked back. Nothing against the Ruger, was a close 2nd. Both companies had the edge over the rest of the pack, being made in the USA (I know, the 22 is German). Comes down with what you like, I don't think you can go wrong with most of the firearms on the market these days.
The lgs has a CX75 PO7, if I was still looking that would be a contender, for sure. Then again, I am always "still looking"
