Mine is on order as of 11/14. I've been anxiously awaiting its arrival, but now I think I am going to forget that I even ordered it like I did my M9A3 G model. Put my name on a waiting list and then forgot about it for a year. When it showed up it was like Christmas morning.

Let's throw this thread for a loop. I'm seriously considering getting a Browning BDM or BPM-D. I'm sure someone will jump in about the backwards safety/decocker, but I don't think it would be a problem for me. Would anyone else consider these two?

DA/SA choice

I have Sigs, but after a little thought, I would choose my CZ PCR in 9mm. It's built on an aluminum frame and it's compact but very accurate and absolutely reliable. My aging eyes demanded a fiber optic front sight but that's the only mod I've even considered. It's really handy for carry.

In a DA/SA thread, I'm pretty sure most of us are OK with the "backwards" safety/decocker, since they've been using that design on Traditional Double Action (TDA) guns since the Walther P-38 came out, including the S&W TDA guns, Beretta 92/M9 series, and the Ruger P-Series guns.

The thing that would concern me would be choosing a gun that was never very popular, and I believe, is now out of production. Both S&W and Ruger made bunches of their TDA guns, and both are great companies, but it is becoming harder and harder to get parts and service on these guns. I don't know where I'd go for parts and service on those Brownings.

I would have to pick my Sig 228 as the most proven DA/SA 9MM to me.

In the realm of DA/SA, I certainly favor the classic SIG P-series, but I'd be almost as comfortable with my beloved Beretta 92FS/M9 pistols or any full-size or compact CZ-75 (all without a silly rail, of course).

I would carry what I carried before I started carrying a 1911 3 years ago.....one of my S&W 645's......or if needing to go a little smaller, a 669.

Of my myriad handguns, my only DA/SA is a P229; I carried it for the majority of my LE career. If the SHTF, it's the gun I am grabbing.

Since 2010, I've been carrying a SIG P220 Equinox Carry and it's been exemplary.

Probably what I have the most trigger time on... Beretta M9.

As much as I love my SIG P220's the HK USP 45 is the pinnacle of DA/SA semi-autos. More reliable than most anything you compare it to plus it holds 12+1 of the mighty 45 ACP. If HK is an option then HK is the answer.

OOPS, original question was about 9mm. So make that a USP in 9mm. The same answer still applies.

S&W 669 is my 9mm da/sa of choice . Far better trigger feel with a lighter pull weight than sig and with a thin .910 slide and 1.2 wide grip it conceals easily too

If I was going to CARRY a DA... and I did in the past, I would carry a Sig P239, which I used to carry in Milt Sparks OWB and IWB holsters. I also had as home defense pistols a Sig P220 .45 ACP and a Sig P226 Navy 9mm. Sigs are my favorite DA pistols!

I have since moved away from DA to SA 1911's and Glocks. I prefer the seamless triggers on both compared to DA.

YMMV! For DA, as mentioned, Sigs are great pistols, especially the older, German models.

For me it's either a 92FS or a Px4 Storm Compact. Both shoot very nice. And yes, I do like the safety/decocker.
