    Help me choose my next handgun!! Some good choices!

    I have narrowed it down to the new hk vp9, a m&p core, walther ppq m1, or a cz sp01. This fun will be used as an everything gun. Range, cc, and home defense. I like the ppq but I had a recent m2 and had issues with it so I'm afraid to get another(it would reset and I would hear te click then I'd pull the trigger and I'd hear the click but no bang). I like the cz but thing it'll be heavy for cc. The other two I'm not sure about. Please discuss and tell your reasoning. I don't prefer we over striker fired or vice versus btw.

    HK ...darn fine weapons. M&P also known to run well, though Im not familiar with the core model. Walther...shrug. CZs are also fine weapons.

    I think Id give serious consideration to the Glock 19, considering what all you want a gun to do.

    From that list CZ all the way. PPQ a very close second.

    Go try them out and at least hold them if ya cant rent them somewhere. The way it feels will be one of those biggest considerations.

    If you ever held a PPQ you would not want to put it down. If you ever fire one, you won't want any other trigger.

    MY first choice would be the CZ.
    M&P or Walther second.

    Of this group, it's hard to go wrong with a CZ (not to heavy to carry). M&P in 2nd. Never personally liked the PPQ and don't have enough experience with the HK to make an informed comment.

    I have owned a ppq actually 3 of them. First two I regretted selling and the 3rd had major issues. It's great to know the cz isn't too heavy for carry, but is it too big

    IMO, PPQ all the way. Sweetest trigger I have ever seen on a striker fired pistol. PERIOD!

    All on your list are nice guns, don't get me wrong, but over all I believe the PPQ to be the better if you plan to CC the pistol.

    My first choice would be the VP9, followed by the PPQ. Next I'd place the M&P, with the CZ last. The first two are very close but overall I think HK quality control and warranty is better. Less chance of a lemon and better service if you get one. Plus there are more aftermarket accessories for the HK (it uses P30 mags and sights, too). The PPQ has a great trigger but I feel the VP9 trigger is at least as good. I'm not crazy about the M&P trigger. I rank the CZ last because it's steel and much heavier than the others. Since it will be CC'd I would rather have a polymer gun that's lighter.

    However, all of those guns are on the large size for CCW, IMO. They're workable, true. If you want one gun to do everything pretty well it won't likely be the best at any one thing.

    Of the guns listed, I'd go for the CZ. If the SP01 weight is a factor, you might look at the CZ75 P-09. Full size, polymer with 19+1 capacity.

    What we like is irrelevant. What you like is everything. If this is to be your one and only do all, end all, then you MUST shoot all of them, preferably at the same range session. None of us can tell what is too heavy or just right for CC for you. None of us can tell you which trigger you will like best. My only advice is if you find two a toss up, then buy U.S. made.
