If I was gonna buy just one 9mm pistol, which one would y'all buy??? Looking for an all around pistol. Carry and accuracy at the range. What do y'all think???? Glock?

Glock, s&w, Springfield will all work. I would look at a compact. It will be a compromise of accuracy and ease of carry. However open carry just passed so a full size would be easy to carry as well. A subcompact would be easier to conceal but harder to shoot accurately.

Whatever Glock fits your hands. 17,19,26,43,35(maybe 34 I do not remember which is 9mm)

Tons of 1911's coming to market in 9mm. Get a 38 super barrel fitted and have a double caliber handgun.

I am a fan of Beretta. The 92-FS compact or the Cougar are my first choice for carry and are also good at the range.

I recommend the G19 for an all around polygon 9mm. Otherwise a 9mm 1911 in a steel gun single stack or Beretta 92 for a double stack steel gun

Accuracy at the range-M9 or maybe another beretta.

Otherwise Glock wins every time for me.

I to want a dedicated 9mm, but can't decide what. So many good ones available. Seriously considering a cz75, browning high power, Sig 226, and all the modern polymers. I have full size pistols, and a subcompact 380, so maybe something in between in size. IDK, can't decide.

Some of you guys really have a different definition of a carry pistol than I do. Even with open carry being allowed, it would be obscenely annoying to carry around something as big as a 1911 or some of the other larger full-size pistols being suggested. I still think the Sig P239 is the best combination of size and shootability I've ever seen.

I carry a glock 26 when I do carry anything. Before hat it was a Glock 19. Both are comfortable.

I feel like the better question to ask is what NOT to carry.
