Questions for the forum members. Finally looking to purchase my first handgun, CC, and home defense shotgun. I'm literally going from zero-to-sixty out of the gate I know, but it's time. For the last 25 years I've lived in pleasantville (Loudoun County in Northern VA) but personal beliefs and some local indicators are moving me to this decision. So...here are my questions:

1. Handgun wise, based on reviews (videos and online articles) and my Dad's input (he owns a (all 9mm) Baretta, Sig P320, and his CC is a brand new Sig P365 (replacing an old .38 revolver he loved). Based on all this input, I've narrowed my handgun choice to the following three 9mm:
Sig P320
Walther PDP
CZ P-10

I'm really up in the air on these three. What is the recommendation for a first time owner who plans on taking it seriously (classes and a regular training/shooting schedule)? The Shield M&P is a close 4th...but I just start to get bleary eyed when I consider too many options. Glock and Springfield are off the table for me (the details are inconsequential).

2. Second question...does it make sense once this choice is made to stay in that family of gun maker for the CC version? i.e. If I settle on Sig, do I just commit to the P365, or the subcompact version of the CZ P-10 if I commit to that maker?

Thanks for the help!

I currently compete with a Sig 320, which replaced a Walther PPQ (precursor to the PDP) which fit my hand better and has a better trigger. I have no experience with the CZ. So I would say, shoot all three you are considering, both for pure accuracy and at the fastest pace you safely can, and see which one wins. Then I would stick with the same ecosystem of handguns, since you are plunging headfirst into all this.

if your not familiar with guns ask your dad to take you to the range get some trigger time with his 9mm.see how comfortable
you are with guns.if your feeling good about it and get your skills under control maybe think about going with a 45cal rather
than a 9mm.not that a 9 wont do but they are not getting up from a 45 hollow point

and while i dont have any Polymere handguns i have shot the walthar and it had a nice trigger and was accurate.

I went to a local gun shop and they gave me hands on knowledge and holding a gun in your hand helps deceive what works for you- also start considering a setup to carry with. I like kore for the belts, tier1 for holsters. The rest is learn as you go
