Check out what Kahr has to offer. Good stuff, varying levels of features and expense. Don't know of any bad ones. I have the CW40, myself---two of 'em. Good carry guns.

All strikers not hammer. I'm having a hard time thinking of a small 9 with a hammer. Unless you go Makarov or something like that.

The Ruger LC9 is a hammer fired pistol, and the LC9s is striker fired.

Colt Defender 9mm
Sig Sauer P938

X2 on the Kahr. Have a CW9 and a CW380. There is also a tiny 9 like the CW 380. Tiny little sucker.



That's the CW380. They have a 9 the same size. Very accurate and reliable for a small pistol.



Pictured next to the CW9 which is obviously larger.

Maybe look at PM9?

What's the point of specifying hammer-fired? You could go with a kel tec pf-9 or something, but the trigger pull on that is a joke compared to the striker-fired m&p shield.

My FIL just picked up the new version of the m&p shield and I was very, very impressed with it. Good handling, good trigger, good size. Most accurate carry pistol I've been able to shoot.

The two main ones I carry are either a XDs or G43. I really like both of them.

Just a guess, but maybe he specified it because that's what he wants? I carry AIWB, and won't carry anything without a hammer either. Striker fired is not always the answer.

Unless it's an external hammer, is there really a difference?
