There are a great number of excellent 9mm pistols on the market right now, certainly every competent manufacturer has a model that is worthy of your consideration. Choice is a great thing, it also makes coming to a decision pretty difficult since there is no clear winner in terms of 'best'.
For me what made the CZ-75 stand out is the grip shape, this one simply fit my hand better than any other 9mm I have tried, so for me this one points very naturally. In addition because of it's very low barrel axis the felt recoil is lower than any other 9mm I have handled, allowing accurate follow up shots very quickly. I find the standard 16 round magazine to be sufficient, cleaning and maintenance is straightfoward and easy.
If I had to list some negatives, first would be that I do wish the slide release located just a little further back, as is I do have to shift my shooting hand to release the slide. This is a problem I have experienced with a lot of designs.
The other might not be a negative at all in the mind of others. This is a full steel pistol, which means it does run heavy compared to the polymer frame pistols though once again that helps negate recoil.
I have no regrets, and strongly suggest everyone in the market for a 9mm at least try the CZ-75.
