if you're on a budget the sr9 or sr9c is the way to go. if you have the budget for a sig p229, it's a no brainer. buy the p229. if you fall somewhere in between look at the cz 75b for hammer fired or walther ppq for striker.
Favorite range gun for the money - CZ 75B or STI Spartan V 9mm
Go-to carry setup - Walther PPS or PPQ in FIST kydex holster 1AK
Favorite semi-auto design - HK P7
