    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. :)

    CZ 75 compact

    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.

    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
