“The CZ P-09 is an overall excellent handgun. It’s a modern option for those who desire a polymer frame, hammer-fired, DA/SA gun. It’s taken the CZ-75 platform and brought it into the modern era of defensive handguns. The P-09 is a great handgun, and it performs where it needs to.” – Travis Pike
The CZ series of firearms have a cult-like following. They aren’t as popular as Glocks or Smith and Wessons, but their enthusiasts love them. It’s easy to see why — with a solid platform, 9mm chambering, and rail for accessories, it goes bang every time. Sporting a 10+1 capacity, this gun measures 8.1 inches in total length with a 4.54-inch barrel and weight at 31 ounces.

Then FN 509 is a polymer pistol with a weight around 26 ounces and a length measuring 7.4 inches. It features a fixed 3-dot sight system with combat-style sights and a capacity of 17 rounds (or 10 round mags available for states that require that). The trigger pull comes in around 5.5 to 7.7 pounds and it feels smooth while shooting. The FN is a nice pistol that, while pricier, is worth the money.
“The CZ P-09 is a classic take on CZ’s styling, updated for modern requirements. While it’s not the most customizable, if you’re looking for a full-size polymer gun that goes bang every time, you could certainly do a lot worse than the P-09.” – Travis Pike
