    I like the lower bore axis usually attainable with a striker fired pistol(which leads to better concealability for a given ammo capacity),but I like the second strike capability and safer design of a DA/SA.

    An example of striker fired guns are Glock, XD, High Point.
    What about Jennings, since you lumped Glocks and XD's with High Points?

    I have 5 handguns, 4 are striker fired, including 3 Glocks. My one hammer fired gun sits in a cut out concealment book, for home use.

    Excellent reply! What was not mentioned however is that some manufacturing defects, but not all, can be corrected by a gunsmith.

    I do some trigger jobs but 6-10 jobs I do with inexpensive handguns is de-burring. Once done It would have probably be better to buy a top tier pistol or revolver in the first place.

    All names you mention are popular and inexpensive. They are not all machined properly and require some additional TLC. There is usually not much I can do for most High Point Arms though.
