    You rang?

    A Hi-Power is a most satisfying full-sized 9mm pistol.

    Have you considered a Hi-Point?

    Don't overlook the Ruger P95, for $300ish they are a solid, well built and will eat just about any ammo you feed it.

    this is mine and yes i carry it (the fobus has been upgraded to a good leather holster) and have no doubt that it would perform just as well as a pistol that cost more than double of what i paid.

    While I would love a hi power, it is a bit out of my price range. I kind of liked the sig sp2022, but it is kind of small for my hands. I think I would like an FNP9, but I can't find one to play with. I do like the feel of an XDM but for some reason I just can't warm up to it. I also will not buy a gun with a backwards safety like a 92F or a third gen Smith. I have thought about a CZ, but once again I can't find one locally. Also, I have read that the triggers are hit or miss with them. I really am having a hard time picking something. Thanks for all the ideas guys.

    You know, people keep bringing up the M&P. I have never even picked one up. I will have to check it out.

    I got nuthin'

    I hear the M&P's and XD's are pretty good, but you've eliminated the best option in my opinion.

    Can't imagine you don't want a Glock but you could consider the Beretta 92FS or the SA XD9:

    CZ75 or a Browning Hi-Power. Both are cream of the crop.

    I came close to buying a Hi-Power this summer but spent the money on a silencer instead. Soon as I can I'm going to go ahead and get me one. Its slim lines makes it very comfortable to carry IWB.
