An H&K USP compact might fit the bill. A little less than a 4" barrel, but not much less IIRC.

Just one suggestion. I'm sure there will be many more to come.

Wow. The only thing missing in your list is a brand name. :)

Just bought a SR9 and the next one on my list is a Beretta Px4 Storm. Why I need another 9mm I don't know but these two are the smoothest pistols I've shot lately. :)

I was looking for the exact same qualities and I ended up with a CZ 75 compact. It is not a polymer pistol though. 9 mm with 14+1 capacity. 3.9 inch barrel I think.

Pleased with the purchase. Best of luck in your quest.

Your number 5 -- "cocked and locked" -- do you actually mean that? That restricts the choices to like one or two older patterns like the 1911.

Otherwise, take the Beretta 92FS.

Try the CZ 75. Great gun!

No, not necessarily. There are DA/SA models out there, many of which are very "modern", that have C&L capabilities.

...and just what the heck do you mean by "older patterns"?! I think you said "older," but actually meant "time-tested". Right? :p
