Love SA/DA pistols but most are IMO too large and heavy for EDC. So, I'm in search of a SA/DA polymer frame 9mm. So far the Beretta PX4 Storm Compact has my attention. A little iffy in the weight category but size + mag capacity are good. Are there any better choices out there? Just don't like the long trigger pull every single shot with my Sec 9. If my P-85 didn't weigh 34 lbs I'd carry it.

PS- I want a rail

Polymer, you might want to check out a Walther P99C. Striker with a decocker. Or a CZ 75 PCR, while not polymer, it's one of the most accurate guns I've ever fired. What overall weight were you looking at for an edc?

The Sec 9s about 24oz and the Berettas a few oz more. Once you load 16 rds in em, that's about my limit for comfortable carry. I looked at the cz but not the walther. I'll check it out.

JarHead - Just got this S&W SD9mm awhile back . It's really light weight and holds 15 comes with 2 mags . I got it for the wife she seems to like it and shoots it just fine the sights are really friendly and it's easy on the wallet . My son got it for me but The Better Half needed something for CCW

The Springfield XDE is designed so it can be run DA/SA or SA cocked and locked.
I also have a XDE I like it a lot. Weighs 24 oz
8 plus 1. I carry mine on 1/2 cock safety not engaged. Good luck finding a handgun that fits you. Take your time.

Sorry but for a lightweight 9mm EDC DA/SA, I'd drop the DA/SA, then you can do a:

Or a Springfield XDS9, Glock 26, Kahr PM9

Already got an EC9S, while I do carry it in the summer, I wouldn't compare it to any SA/DA auto. Here comes the boos, but I don't own any Glocks + I intend to keep that position to my grave. Looked at the Springfields, need to look at that Kahr.

When I am not carrying my Glock 22 I a carry a S&W/Walther SW99C in 40. Its the best thing I have found and the most accurate polymer pistol around. Sadly they dont make them anyhmore. Really like the decocker mode on it.

I like this Springfield, but I'm thinkin it would be a better rpl for the EC9 rather than the Sec 9. I looked at CZs before, not sure how this one escaped my notice. Got an eye on it now, THANX!

Just checked the Kahr, unless I'm mistaken that's DAO striker fired with a 7 lb trigger pull. Think I'd take the Sec 9 over that.
HK P30SK is a nice choice View attachment 151393
Found this model a little small for my likin, but it's bigger brother the P30 is PERFECT! I'm a southpaw and all the ambidextrous features are a real plus. Appreciate the heads up, this one's got my name on it.

It is always tough finding that balance between weight, capacity, feel, and manual of arms. Take your time; fins a range where you can rent some of the above and shoot as many as possible. Even feeling the trigger in a showroom is not the same as live fire.

That's a fact! And in today's market, seems like I'm always settling for less than what I want. So my mind is telling me to wait + my body's telling me I'll be dead by then! :rolleyes:
