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
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)
Walther PPQ!

Indeed FN is one of the very best, quite high dollar as well, but damn well worth it!

Thanks for the clarification. I don't own an LC 9 but my brother in law does and I've shot it several times and had not noticed. Did notice it has quit a bit of recoil. Other than that its a pretty good ccw. The sig I recently saw at a local store for $429.99 and thought it was a good buy for a sig and only noticed it does not have an exposed hammer and assumed it was striker fired. It does look like a pretty good gun, food finish and feel.

Yeah, a lot of companies are going with that recessed hammer which very much looks striker fire like.

With all due respect, the LCP that I am looking at right now is not and will never be striker fired.
It is sad to see people make statement as if they were fact instead of saying "I Think...."

If you would have taken the time to read a few replies above you'd notice I accepted my error. Regardless of wether the LC 9 is or isn't striker fired, it does not have an exposed hammer that can get stuck or caught in clothing when used as a ccw as you can see below.

I disagree with you. That looks like an extremely low profile hammer that you couldn't get caught on anything whatsoever. I see a channel for the hammer but no hammer in that photo. You only see the hammer as the trigger gets pulled.

Maybe I miss understand...I read where you had listed the LCP as striker fired. But you seem to be talking about the LC9 here. Both firearms are hammerfired.

He's cool, we got it straightened out. I can totally see why he'd think so.

I think you misread his statement. He said the same thing you are here, that there is NO exposed hammer to possibly get snagged.
