I'm looking for a 9mm for range use and it may see home defense duty as well. Already have a CCW, so this can be anywhere from compact to full size. It needs to be comfortable to shoot for a couple hundred or more rounds. My Walther P99C surprised me with it's muzzle flip and isn't a whole lot of fun to shoot after a while. I've heard alot of praise for all of these pistols. The Beretta PX4 feels good in my hand, the Glock feels fine and has alot of rabid fans, the Sig Pro is probably a soft shooter since it's pretty heavy, and the HK is said to handle recoil really well for it's compact size. I've never handled the Steyr - found a local shop with one and I need to go check it out. It seems like a terrific value. Anybody who has owned/fired more than one of this group of pistols, I'd like to hear what you think. I expect a certain amount of bias with this being a Steyr forum.
