Can anyone recommend a pistol for me?
I am looking for a pistol that has the following characteristics:
*9mm or .40 S&W
*Compact in size (comparable to S&W M&P Compact or SA XD Subcompact)
*DA/SA or DAO
*Manual Safety and/or Decocker preferred
I want something where the hammer/striker has ZERO potential energy - read: "is at rest" - while holstered and until a positive action is done on it (i.e. cocking the hammer, pulling the trigger, etc). Unless my research has failed me, this limits me to DA/SA (with a decocker) or true DAO (like a snubby revolver with a shrouded hammer).
