I have a 9mm model 8000 and it is a great pistol. I have not read a bad review of the Stoeger Cougar. It is manufactured from the same tooling as the Beretta Cougar so you get the fantastic Beretta engineering, just made in Turkey instead of Italy. My understanding is when they produced it with the Beretta badge it had a problem finding a market at the price they had to charge when made in Italy so they dropped it from the Beretta line. Some time later they moved the tooling and machinery to Turkey and it was resurrected in the Stoeger line at about half the price and has been pretty successful since then.
