What to look at getting next for a pistol

So, I am trying to think of what I want to get next for a pistol. This would not be daily carry. Maybe occasionally. I have a XD-s 9mm and Glock 17 gen4. I would like to stay with 9mm but would consider something in 45acp if it was steel. I am thinking of something in da/sa. I am not picky just need it affordable under or around $500. I really like the lionheart lh9 but you have to order it only. Something along those lines would be great.

FN-P9 is pretty cheap these days. I always liked it. Been replaced by the FN-S and FN-X (both of which sound like good guns too, I've just never shot them).

If it's not for carry, why not look at one of the witnees or CZ guns?

You can have fun tinkering with them, and are an intersting departure from plastic fantastics. I shoot a witness for my competition gun, own a few 1911, berretta 92, etc, and they are just a hoot to put rounds down range with :

If you like playing with them, there are, like, a thousand different barrels for the Thompson Contender

Under $500 restricts your options. Check out the Ruger SR-9 or LC-9 or their compact versions.

I can't stand the Beretta 92,, huge, clunky, unergonomic

The FN or CZ are good choices but try them first, some ranges rent them

I have the FN so I know that's true. I shied away from the CZ because it is repudiated to be a bit finicky with ammo, unlike My FNS9, a few thousand rounds in has never hiccuped, FTF, FTE, stove piped, nothing, flawless.
