It's been a while and I am now looking for a new carry pistol to compliment my S&W442. I have several pistols I am looking at and would love some feedback. At the top of my list are the CZ 75 compacts either in SA with a steel frame or the alloy framed PCR with a decocker, though I am having a hard time finding either one. The CZ P07 is also in my top 6. The SIG 239 SAS is also a contender as my local shop has a used one at a good price but I am not a fan of the DA trigger pull. I'm also considering a 1911 commander in 9mm either a STI Spartan IV, or an RIA Commander 9mm if I can find one. For a back up pistol I was thinking about either a Beretta 85FS Cheetah I've always liked the Cheetah despite the >380 caliber and they are very accurate pistols.
Before I start getting a lecture about bigger bullets are better, I have carried and shoot a 9mm for 8 years and have never found it wanting when using the appropriate ammo. The .45 is a great cartridge and when I start reloading my own practice ammo I'll consider it. For those of you who shoot the .40S&W I'm sure its a very effective round, but it's not the 10mm.
