Depending on the need my favorites are :

Concealed carry - Kahr PM9 - to me the trigger feels very much a smooth DA revolver.

Full size carry - Browning BDM -feels and shoots like a High Power but with a decocker DA/SA

Neither has an external safety but rather DA trigger (at least for the first round in the case of the Browning) which I prefer being a revolver guy.

Then there is also my Springfield EMP.

Just my 2 cents worth.

I see many folks mentioning the P88 in regard to Walther. I would agree that it was their best 9mm of all time.

However, to be more specific, I'd say the rare SAO variants are the best of the best, such as the P88 Champion or Competition. They are a little better fit and have phenomenal triggers.

Below is my P88 Competition on the left with my P88 Compact and P88.

The CZ 75 has nothing to do with the Browning Hi Power. Its a totally different design. I'm not quite sure where that misconception comes from.

Its not an "offspring" by any means.

I'm going with the two I own. Beretta 92FS for some good range time, and a Sig P938 for my pocket. For compacts those S&W 3914's look really nice. Why did they stop making them?

I believe what REVOLVER GUY is referring to is the grip frame, which CZ has replicated from the P35 due to its favorable cross-section, profile, and grip angle.
