    Looking for a tack driver in 9mm

    What's the best? So far I have read that the S&W 952 is one of the best, if not the best. Also read that the STI Trojan was a great shooter. I am thinking about staying with a 1911 platform. What do you people recommend?

    My Ruger P95 is what I am most accurate with out of all of my handguns.

    Sig P210

    The Sig P210 has a big reputation as one of the most accurate 9mm guns. It is shown below. Other candidates might include the Sig P226ST (all steel) or the H&K P7M8.

    My S&W 1911 9mm Pro is very accurate and has a very good trigger out of the box, I shoot it better than any other gun I own. If I was interested in using it just for the range I'd put better sights on it, the 3 dot sights aren't exactly made for precision work but for my needs - duty carry, IDPA - they're fine, though I will be canging the front to a night sight.

    If it shoots as well as my 10mm, the 9mm EAA Witness Elite Match would be on my short list.

    The HK USP Elite is a very accurate pistol. Each pistol's barrel and slide are hand fit, adjustable target sights and a very, very, smooth and crisp match target trigger with stop. They are a little hard to come by but the $1000 or so price is very reasonable compared to some of the other top notch guns mentioned.

    All my SIGs are pretty much tack drivers.... Oddly the best of the group is a toss up between my 239 and my 220. And since the 220 is a .45, that sort of narrows it down to answer your question.

    For me the Browning Hi Power will always be the choice. It is one of the easiest weapons to shoot well, excellent ergonomics, very good pointing ability. Close enough to the 1911 platform that an experienced 1911 user will have no difficulty making the transition. Repair parts are commonly available just about anywhere in the world.

    I regularly maintain a 952 and a Blackwater Sig 226. Both are extremely accurate. For much less cash, our range rental Glock 34 is still accurate even with a cracked slide from a super high round count.

    All things considered, most quality handguns shoot better than most people can hold them anyway.

    The P228 is amazing...in my hands, The P210 seems to be the Rolls Royce of 9mm though.

    I'll second the BHP. I've shot a few that were extremely accurate over the years as well as a couple that weren't but it's a great platform to start with.

    I recommend a Glock 19. Just make sure the mag and the chamber is clear and hammer away.
