First thing I thought of was the Browning Hi-power.

I agree with the Hi Power but I think the S&W Model 59 deserves some honorable mention based on the history and evolution of transition from revolvers to pistols here in the US.

I agree BUT I remember when the original 39 series was considered "the P-38 done right" and it was the first DA auto and the first in 9mm to be purchased by a PD, but the 59 was groundbreaking in a different respect. When it came out there were only 2 other double stack 9s, the Highpower and the MAB, but the 59 is still kind of "second generation" groundbreaking.

IMO, if it weren't for the highpower and the 39 leading the way, (and the history of both designs in VN played a part) the 9mm might not have ever become popular in the US.

There are many good choices out there depending on the person. I know you said you don't want another Glock, but everyone seems to be giving you their personal favorites.
So, here's mine.

Glock 17

a good second choice would be the Beretta 92.

I'm not trying to diss the Browning Hi Power or Sig 226 or any other handgun. These are just the choices I've made for myself after shooting the majority of 9mm's out there.

I was thinking Model 59 because I am thinking it was the first (somewhat) popular double action double stack 9mm pistol. But I agree that there other pistols in the evolution, any of several which are probably more iconic and probably more enjoyable to shoot.

I'd actually put the 39 before the 59, Bruce.

It was around quite a bit before.

For me though, its the Browning Hi Power

The 38 Super was developed for the 1911, but the 1911 was developed for the 45ACP.

If I ever find out that John Moses Browning isn't Secretary of Defense for the Kingdom of Heaven I might have to become an atheist.

Yeah, but the Luger wasn't developed for the 9mm. It was the other way around.

BAC do you have any supporting evidence for this statement. ahahahahhaahahahhaahhahaha

The first 3 classic firearms that come to mind when mentioning 9mm would be the BHP, S&W 39 and the Beretta. I have never shot a S&W 39, that one is still on my bucket list.

kind of a generational issue, your love of history may determine your choice

Good point

The Hi Power has history, pedigree, great looks, great ergonomics, etc, etc

It's my favorite 9mm of all time.

Yes, link to the documentation supporting these claims or should we just except it as fact because you said so?
