Default Recommend a Range Gun

I need a range gun. I'm thinking about a compact S&W M&P 2. Here's my criteria:

9mm
Capacity 10+ rounds
Striker Fired
Reliable/Reputable Brand
Price up to ~$600

I'm not a Glock guy because they just don't fit my hands. I like Walther, S&W, Kahr and Ruger.

That's the short of it. Let me know what guns you think I should consider.

Walther PPQ and Walther P99C are my two fav. I have a sig p229 that isn't too bad. All of those can be found for $600 or less if you look. There were some Walther rebates a while back. Not sure if they're still doing that.

Well some might take this as offensive but it is not intended as such. I am genuinely curious.

Why would you not train at the range with the firearm you (1) carry or (2) use for personal defense in your home?

I also don't get why OP specified a "range gun" but mentions a compact pistol as what he is considering?

Most are more comfortable with a full sized pistol for a dedicated range/target gun. More accurate, more comfortable to shoot, etc, than compact guns designed for carry.

Perhaps the intended use of this pistol is neither. While any firearm I own could be pressed into a defensive role not all of them are intended for that use.

I purchased two lever guns as companion pieces to two revolvers in .357 and .44 mag respectively. I have them just for fun. They are "range toys". Sure I could grab my marlin to defend myself but it wouldn't be even in my top ten list.

Absolutely I spend the majority of my range time with my Walther, fiveseven, and PS90 as those would be my first choices. However sometimes it's fun to go old school with a .357 lever gun.

Kinoons is right. It's not going to be my carry or defensive gun. I've got a class coming up. My carry/defense guns don't have the capacity I want.

The M&P "compact" is about the size of what I'm looking for. And it's 10+ rounds. So to me "compact" is just a name.

If the m&p compact is the size you're looking for take a strong look at a P99C. It's the same size as a g26 and can take the Walther 10 round mags from the factory. It can also make use of the PPQ factory 15 round mags, 17rd mags, and I believe there are 20 round mags if you can find them.

Just to clarify, the P99c takes PPQ M1 mags - not M2's.
