Picking the best 9mm pistol is a complicated decision whether you’re fan of the Glock 19, Smith & Wesson M&P Shield, Taurus G2C, Sig 365 & 320, Walther PPQ, or a variety of 9mm handguns from other manufacturers.
I have a top pick, but not everyone looks for the same features that make the best handgun for them.
Affordability, performance, and ease of use & maintenance are the main factors that I consider. In the end, your own personal experience is what’s going to move a pistol from just being in the popular handguns category to being the one you think is the best pistol.
Here are the top handguns that rank best for me. These models sell by the hundreds each month at Green Top online and on our showroom floor.
If the trend continues, it’s likely that we’ll see these topping the list again in 2021.
