Rickster the p250 isn't a striker fired pistol. It's DAO but not striker fired.

At one point there was talk of the 250 being converted to striker. Rather or not that is still in the works idk.

You can also get a XD with a external safety. I have never personally seen one. But I did see something about it in my owners Manuel. Kind of pointless tho IMO. It already has a grip safety. I don't think that option is available on any of the M modals tho not sure. I also believe you can get some of the M&P's with external safety's.

Ruger sr series and smith m and ps can also have safeties. The part that makes the 24/7 interesting to me is the safety with a decocking feature. I've never seen that on a striker fired gun

No, the LC9 is hammer fired. It's a hidden hammer, recessed into the polymer frame. I had one, trust me. Just look at one in the shop, the back is open and you can watch the hammer as you pull the trigger. Same with Sig. Sig does not make a striker fire. At least that I can recall.

Gentlemen, thanks for all the input!

I think I've just about got it covered. Of note, I know there's uncertainty on some of the models (manufacturer's aren't always clear on their websites.). This is OK as it gives me a starting point - I'm not totally against DAO anyway though I'm not a fan of external safeties (except on my 1911).

OK, here's the 2nd recap:

Glock: all models striker fired
Springfield Armory: XD line (M, S)
S&W: M&P (SD, low cost model)
Ruger: LC9, SR series, LCP, DB9
FN: FNS
Walther: P990, PPQ
Taurus PT 740, PT 709, TCP, 24/7, pro series
Beretta: BU9 Nano
Kahr
Nambu

Sig Sauer: P250 (DAO)
HK: no striker fired offerings (verified through customer service)

Most of the polymer framed pistols today are similar in function.

Muscle memory, training (with a competent, certified instructor), and willingness to be proficient are what is needed.
Some platforms are easy to work with (revolvers, Glocks, XDm's...) while others require dedication
Good points. I'm career military and an outdoorsman who's dedicated to shooting and hunting. My better half is not and will never be. So, for our "mutual use" defensive weapons I conservatively keep complexity to a functional minimum with an emphasis on the 4 rules, accuracy, and very basic tactics.

I gotta ask, why the fixation of striker fired pistols? There are plenty of great pistols with metal frames and proper hammers with decent triggers.
No real fixation as I have a keen interest in all firearms but for this specific application (striker fired) I just needed some help on what's out there.
