S&W M&P would be my first suggestion, the second would be the FNP. Change the back strap on the M&P and try it again. I expect you will like it. BTW the FNP also has three back straps to fit your hand.

I would definitely love to have one as a range fun gun, but I don't think I'd be comfortable carrying it because of that trigger being too far away.

If were talking carry guns...

Haven't handled one, or even seen one in a store yet.

The Hi-Power and the HK are excellent guns indeed
I'd love to have both, but right now my budget is more in the Springfield, Glock, Ruger, S&W range.

I picked up the SR9 after looking at the XD I did not care for the ergonomics of the XD. I sold my Sigma after doing the trigger fix. It was a reliable gun but I though the SR was a bit more left hand friendly. I had one problem with the SR, one of the block pins under the slide stop plate walked out. Its held in by a spring tail much like the colt ar15s trigger and hammer pins. I found the notch to be a bit to shallow to grip the pin. So I ground it a bit deeper and added some red locktit to the metal block and pin on both sides. Since its not something that will be removed on any kind of regular basis I thought I would use red. I liked the M&P a lot but its at 525 and up so the Ruger at 407 was a better buy. The SR is built like the 1911, thin and the ergonomics are more like the 1911 than other guns. I liked the safety and the mag release being ambidextrous. It shoots very accurately and has adjustable sights. One other pos. is the rails are universal compared to the Sigma which are only for Smith products. I saw the smith at a gun show in Wichita new for 295 tax and all out the door. I don't know if Smith is offering any rebate still, I did not see one on their site. But thatís a great price. You will have a hard time selling a Sigma and getting your money out of it. I lost 25$ but shot it for three months.

Personally I am not a Ruger customer service fan. They act like they are the best in the business but I have not seen it. But I like the gun and it performs well and there are many Ruger brand loyalist out there so I can move it if for some reason I decide to sell.

How about the Ruger SR9c....

Pictured here with the 10-round magazine.

It has the best trigger of any polymer-framed striker-fired pistol that I have ever fired....and this includes Glocks, XDs, M&Ps, and other Rugers as well.

And it also comes with a 17-round magazine just in case you need more capacity....
