I require a 9mm. This will be for carry and competition. Have ruled out Beretta, M&P (mine has problems right now), and a 226 would be bit steep at the moment. Looks like it will be a Glock 17 or a SIG 2022. Both have had their problems, but both are reputed to be excellent guns. For those of you familiar with either, tell me what you think. BTW, I have never seen or heard of a range in any place I have ever lived that has renters, so that option is out.
