    Glock 19.
    If you like FN, take a look at their new striker fired pistol the FNS. Very nice pistol.

    I don't think you can go wrong with any of those three. How you like the look and feel of a firearm is a highly personal matter. I always think its funny when someone publicly asks a question like this. What I think is nice you may think is ugly. My preferences are not yours. What fits my hand may not fit yours. As long as its not junk, how can you go wrong if you choose any of those three?

    G19 (gen 4's are out). Then later, if bored, graduate to a G32 with an extra barrel in .40SW (same size gun, same holsters, same handling). Good manufacturer support. A lot of Glock parts available at decent prices too. I stocked up on spare Glock parts (i.e. springs, extractor, etc). I prefer not to have something made in Croatia either (XDs). Not sure about the FN. Probably not too many around (in regards to spare parts and support). I'm sure it shoots well. No Sigs?

    All nice choices. I own the G19 and the XDm 4.5" (but shot the 3.8" a ton before I went a bit longer). For me and my hands, the XDm is the softest shooter and has the best ergonomics-hence the most accurate in my hand (includes my HK USPc 9). If I had to choose one it would be the G19-I just feel that I am more comfortable with the long term reliability (not really based on anything other than gut).

    Shoot them though, they are fairly different.

    Whatever fits you best. As long as you get a reliable brand you'll be fine.

    I looked at all these (and more) too, and I ended up going with the XDm 9mm Compact 3.8. It just felt better in my hand than any of the others. Whatever feels right is the way to go!
