PT92 hands down!!!
PT92AFS - - one of the sharpest looking of the crowd. Oh yeah, it shots like it is a part of the arm, too. I'm in love with mine.

All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted. . . . . . . . . . . . .. — Frank Herbert, Chapterhouse: Dune
I don't have experience with the TH9 although I think it would make for a great gun to own but I'm still going with the PT92AFS.
The only PT92 I put my hands on is my buddy's that he bought in '88 and I have to say, it's pretty thick in the grip area. It has a big butt. I'm not sure if they slimmed them up a bit as years went by, but if they haven't, I'm not sure about everyday carry of one.

to me it depends on WHAT you are intendeding to use the weapons for?
ones a full size multi capacity weapon and ones a duty size weapon.
for carry the 99 that I own would be one of my last choices, even though it has been a quite reliable accurate weapon.
the 99---(92) are large, heavy, thick guns and hard to conceal and carry, but as a target fun plinker they are nice, especially the 99 model with adjustable sights.

I have the PT 92 AFS and like it a lot...but it does have a big butt as mentioned. Also as stated, not a carry gun unless one is built like a truck...heavy dude loaded up with 18 +1 (with the MecGar mag).
A plus for the PT 92 is that some Beretta parts will fit should it need repair.

I have no experience with the PT92. I do however own a 9mm in the TH9, TH9C and the G2S. I love to shoot all of them and I have never had any issues with any of them. I took a holster draw and fire course and used the TH9C and even the instructor was impressed with it. The TH9 is a little to big for EDC to me, so my CCW handgun is the G2S. It's the right size, weight and is easy to control when fired. The only drawback is the mags are only 7RD, so while I'm on the subject does anyone know if there are larger capacity mags for the G2S?

I don't have a PT92 and don't want one. I do have a TH9c and it's light, compact, high firepower, and wonderful for carry which is what I do with it. But, it's a fun shooter, too. PT92s are too big to be practical IMHO. I have a Ruger P85 I don't carry either and it's compact compared to a PT92.

It really depends on how it will be used. The TH9 is lighter than the pt92 and will carry easier. IF you just want a range or competition pistol, the PT92 has a longer record of reliability than the TH9. IMHO the Pt92 is more accurate, but the TH9 is no slouch either. My concern with the TH series is strictly based on previous Taurus history with their poly pistols, it has been hit and miss. But the PT92 has been a shining star for decades.
