Default Need some advice on a handgun purchase

OK guys getting a new handgun next week and have narrowed it down to 3/4 choices all 9mm.
Springfield XD(M), a FN FN9/FX9 and a CZ P07 Duty. I really want a 9mm w/a hammer but I wanna be able to carry cocked and locked and I don't think the CZ has that ability as well as the FN FN9. Any thoughts?

Out of those three I would get the XDm, not that the others are bad choices.

Because that's the one striker fired that I'd love to add to my collection.
I prefer a hammer, but will whole heartily buy a XDm

I like the FNP9 for what my input is worth... In my eyes, the ergos are better than the XD (of which I am a fan as well)... I have been looking to add an FNP40 to the safe...
