If you like the feel of it, you can't do any better than a Ruger P95, especially for the money. The new ones are nice, they have a stippled grip and are a little slimmer than the originals.
For something that will do double duty as a house gun and concealed carry, I'd go with a Glock 19.
Slow is smooth.....smooth is fast.
XD9 Tactical. High capacity, reliability, 1911 type grip angle and light rail. I would choose the 5" Tactical model as there is no reason to worry about conceal with a home defense gun.
I'd pick a full size 9mm with a reputation for reliability, night sights and a high capacity magazine - one that I had fired 1000 times and had confidence in. It could be a Sig, Glock, Beretta or H&K for me.
I have personally used a Sig P226 quite a bit for home defense, loaded with 15 rounds of good quality hollowpoints.

Any Glock in 9mm would be a good choice. The 17 or 19 would be the better
choices in my humble opinion.
CZ is still under the radar here in the USA. It's a great pistol. Affordable, Accurate, Comfortable, Dependable.
CZ 75 B is used by more Governments, Militaries, Police and Security agencies than any other pistol in the world. The CZ 75 is quite possibly the perfect pistol.
* All steel construction (except alloy framed compacts)
* High capacity double column magazines
* Hammer forged barrels
* Ergonomic grip and controls
* Unparalleled accuracy
* Slide-in-frame design for better recoil control
* 3 dot sighting system (Tritium night sights available)
* Easy operation of controls
* Smooth double action and crisp single action
* Extended service life due to advanced design and superior materials
* Firing pin block safety
Be ready. You can't make an appointment for an emergency.

I worry about the parts and service availibilty in your home country. All these other suggestions might be fine here in the states, but its hard enough to get parts for XD's and some of the others. Thats why I suggest Glock. I know you can get them easy enough down there.
But then again, maybe I'm concerned about a nothing.
