Compiling a list of the best 9mm pistols is a difficult game to play. Pistols are kind of like pizzas. Everyone has their own personal tastes (in both firearms and oven-baked Italian dishes). Crowning one version as “the best” is probably going to ruffle a lot of feathers.
Thankfully, there are plenty of 9mm pistol options to choose from. This is by no means an exhaustive list. However, the options we’ve included tend to be solid performers that work for a wide range of shooters.
Selecting a self-defense firearm requires you to find one that fits you, that you can shoot comfortably, and that you can hit the target with reliably.

Palmetto States Armory hosted the first and hopefully annual Gathering event. This event brought together shooters, manufacturers, media, and more for three days of guns and fun. Sadly a tornado warning killed Thursday's adventures, but that didn't stop me from thoroughly combing the place Wednesday and Friday. One of the more exciting firearms brought to the table was the Jackl. The Jackl is a PSA creation and is one of their newest proprietary firearms. It's been a crowd favorite, albeit PSA has been scant with details and updates.
The Gathering is on! On the open range are dozens of pistols, pistols, rifles, machine guns, and even a flame thrower!

I got my hands on each and everyone I could, and here are my five favorite AKs of the Gathering.
