    Best 9mm for target practice

    My friend wants to get a 9mm. It is for shooting at the range. He is looking at the Sig P226. I favor the Beretta 92 FS.

    I believe he is looking for a steel gun not a polymer. What do you guys recommend?

    BHP, one of the more fun guns to shoot. CZs ain't too bad either.

    Both of those are great choices, I'd strongly recommend the CZ75 too.

    I bought a 226 for my 9mm. Never had any problems. Always enjoy shooting it. I favor it since i own one. Now it spends most nights in my girlfriends nightstand.

    Cost is not an issue but when I saw a P226 X-5 for $1600, he balked. Somewhere under $1200, is my guess.

    He is probably favoring the P226.

    Too bad tupperware is out. Ruger P95 is a tank of a poly framed 9mm pistol that shoots great, accurate, reliable, and affordable. I personally like the older models.

    If he can go to 1200, the CZ Tactical is an absolute screamer. A shooter in our league has one, and it shoots better than any 9mm anyone there has ever shot.

    Best bang for the buck in a steel, full-size 9mm is the CZ-75. This is a heavy-duty gun designed for military service, so it's not a fragile safe queen. It responds well to action and trigger work (local guy Eric Zinn is a CZ master and does a lot of work for the CZ-USA firm - http://ezfirearms.com/). For $1200 I'd get the gun and a full action & trigger job, then have money left over for a couple of holsters and a case of ball ammo.

    If used is an option, BugDude's nomination of the Ruger P95 is highly worthy of a second. It's another gun you won't wear out.
